My laptop is acting up... some programs (R particularly) do weird things, and stand by/ hibernation often fails...
A member of the R-help list suggested memory corruption. How can I test for this/fix this?
Here is copy/paste of the thread, in case it helps...
Interesting; I upgraded my laptop to 2 gigs. and from that point on, it sometimes fauls to hibernate (just hangs). Maybe this is related? I installed an XP patch to solve hibernation problems with laptops over 2 gigs...
Maybe it didn't work?
Re: Rogue c code: I was running library(Matrix), which is a pretty complicated piece of code and surely has c code...
