    Default Memory in freezer

    I've just been reading of a guy who, after his memory failed, put it in a freezer for 24 hours and.........voila.......memory working again

    Has anyone heard of such a thing before? Can anyone think of a logical reason for this to work?

    Wish me luck, I've got 2 dead sticks of Team 6400, 4,4,4,10. with the same chips that are in the freezer as I post this.....well...nothing to loose huh?
