This paper is concerned with the problem of verifying the accuracy of approximate solutions of systems of linear equations. Recently, fast algorithms for calculating guaranteed error bounds of computed solutions of system's of linear equations have been proposed using the rounding mode controlled verification method and the residual iterative verification method. In this paper, a new verification method for systems of linear equations is proposed. Using this verification method, componentwise verified error bounds of approximate solutions of systems of linear equations can be calculated. Numerical results are presented to illustrate that it is possible to get very sharp error bounds of computed solutions of systems of linear equations whose coefficient matrices are symmetric and positive definite.
