Extract from today's paper

According to HP, the faulty chips - manufactured by major players like Infineon, Samsung, Micron Technology and Winbond Electronics - could cause problems when they are used in conjunction with Intel chipsets.

When the Intel chipsets try to save power, they apparently trigger the memory chips to refresh repeatedly.

The faulty memory chip is unable to cope with this process and this could lead to the computer crashing and the loss of data.

Notebooks are becoming increasingly popular. Last June, the number sold here exceeded that of desktop computers for the first time.

According to research house Gartner, HP had the largest market share here - 29.5 per cent - among computer vendors in the first quarter of the year. p> This includes both desktops and notebooks.
