AceSnyp3r Posted October 30, 2004 Share Posted October 30, 2004 Well I just built a new computer, and it ran great for a few days, then when I rebooted my computer today, *BAM*, BIOS tells me the RAM failed the R/W test. So I pulled the memory out, and stuck it back in to see if maybe it was a bit loose in there, still got the error. Next thing I tried was pulling out the 2nd stick and just running on the 1st stick. That went well. So I swapped the 1st stick out for the 2nd and got the error again. Then I put the 1st back in, it ran fine, so I concluded that I must have some bad RAM here. I'm using the Value Select "1 GB Memory Module Kit" (2x512), but I can't find a model number anywhere (of course I have no idea where to look either), so where would I find that number? Second, what do I need to do next to get it sent in, tested, and returned/replaced if I have to? My computer specs are: ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe Pentium 4 2.80C Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 120GB PNY GeForce FX5200 AGP 128MB SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS Windows XP Professional I'm not running anything overclocked either. If there's any other info I can provide, just say so, I wanna get this problem resolved ASAP so I can get back to my gaming/3D work, without having to spend $70 on new RAM :sigh!: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
