Abstract

An algorithm is disclosed which compensates for failed memory in a computer system. Memory is a vital component of any computer system. The failure of even a small portion of the computer's total memory severely limits the usefulness of the computer and often will completely disable it. Therefore, it is desirable to isolate such memory failures (faults) and compensate for them, so that the fault does not significantly impact the usefulness of the system. It is also desirable to perform such failure compensation automatically without involving the user. A process which will perform such failure compensation is described below.
