Sunef Posted October 30, 2004 Share Posted October 30, 2004 I bought two 512Mb modules about 24 months ago. Over the past two years I've had trouble when entering bios to change settings. Once in a while when changing bios settings, the result would be a blank screen after saving and restarting. It could be something as ordinary as changing boot devices, nothing related to overclocking or tweaking memory. In the end I simply let the bios settings alone and left them at default. About one month ago the screen was blank again when I started the computer one day. Reseting bios didnt help, nothing did. So I figured, because of the bios problems, that the motherboard was at fault. I returned the motherboard to the reseller and got it back 2 weeks later thouroughly tested and with no errors found. I reassembled the computer and the screen was still blank. So, I decided to buy a new motherboard and CPU, and got it a few days ago. I assembled it and the screen was still blank. Now I was beginning to suspect something different, so I brought my two computers to a friend to try the parts on his computer. On all three machines the screen is blank with either of the Corsair memory modules. Using my friends DDR on any of the setups results in flawless boot and behavior. So my conclusion is that the Corsair RAM is at fault. Here are the stats: Memory: 2 modules of Corsair CMX512-3200C2 XMS3202v1.1 Computer 1: Asus A7N8X Deluxe Atlon XP 2200+ Computer 2: Asus K8N-E Deluxe Athlon 64 3000+ Computer 3: Motherboard unknown Intel P4 2.8 Ghz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
