jasonthebeast Posted November 14, 2004 Share Posted November 14, 2004 Hi, I have Corsair TWINX1024-3200LLPT 1GB DDR400 XMS3200 Ultra Low Latency Dual-Channel Memory w/Platinum Heat Spreader Retail. Recently I have had millions of problems with video games, and now even internet explorer. To fix the problem I did a few hundred driver upgrades, a motherboard bios update, and swaping parts from other computers, Changing to win2k from WinXP then back again. Basically any 3D game, and Internet explorer crash me to either desktop or just restart the system. I have tried everything but it keeps happening. Its not a software issue I know that for sure, after all the OS and Driver changes nothing works. Next I assumed perhaps a IRQ conflict, no that came up clean also. I have been at this forever now. When I swaped out the RAM for another computers I didnt have the problem anymore though. I have never used anything except the SPD of the RAM in BIOS, so I think my sticks are bad :(. So i downloaded MemTest-86 v3.2 to test out the RAM. This came up with a million errors (actually like 12K) but its alot. So its my non-expert opinion thats the Sticks are bad. So next i contacted Googlegear (now zipzoomfly.com) since thats who I bought it through. They said since i purchased it in May of 2003 I would have to go through the manufacturer thats you guys to get them RMA'ed. So thats what i'm doing, came to the website and it said i needed to post here. Below is a list of the equipment i use the RAM in: Abit IC7-MAX3 (bios 17 now) Corsair TWINX1024-3200LLPT 1GB DDR400 XMS3200 (as above) Windows XP Home Edition Pentium 4 3.0GHz (1MB Cache-Presscot) Processor 160GB Samsung Serial ATA Hard Drive Sound Blaster Audigy Sound Card eVGA GeForceFX 5950 Ultra 256MB Video Card (8X AGP) Antec 550 Watt (truePower) Power Supply Thats the core parts, although most I pulled out to test too see if they were causing compatiblity probs. But even with just MB, CPU, RAM, Video Card, and Hard Drive I had the same problems. I want this fixed as fast as possible, so please tell me what to do to RAM, and if you could give me a ballpark as too how long the process takes please, thanks.
