    Question generating error bits in memory

    Hi guys, I am trying to figure out where to start on a program I am writing, basically I want to generate multiple bit errors in main memory and have my memorys ECC to be able to detect the errors and display where they are. Could someone helps me out or point me in the direction as i am quite lost, I am trying not to implement it via kernals as i want platform independence.

    Thanks

    First, let get some knowledge in that head of yours, read this.

    By reading that you'll find out that error correction only happens during transmission from your PCs memory controller to your memory. The memory controller knows that the memory is ECC, so it sends the data accordingly.

    Sorry bub, you can't do this in software.
