Hi,

I noticed that some of the digital pictures that are stored on my comp's hdd seem to get corrupted after some time. When I view them, they appear to be cut off to varying degrees, with a blank grey portion appearing.
Just wondering if you guys experience this and how frequent this happens. Anyway to restore the pics?

Thanks.

This has happened to me before... I thought maybe it was my camera that had a problem, or the memory card. Eventually I found out that some parts of my RAM had gone bad. So what was happening was that anytime I moved a picture or copied it off elsewhere, or even just tried to view it, if that bad portion of the RAM was being used, the files would get corrupted a little bit.

So I ran a diagnostic program on my pc, and confirmed there was bad RAM in my system, so I removed the offending unit, and replaced it with a new one. No more corrupted files since then. :p And my Windows has definitely been more stable since the replacement.

Might wanna check your ram with this program. It's free. Hope this helps!

Windows is ALWAYS stable. ;) Try to load the pic after reboot and see if it's still corrupted.

Yes. Ram is most likely the problem.
