kganann Posted November 16, 2004 Share Posted November 16, 2004 Hi there, I picked up a set of twin 512MB sticks with silver heat spreaders from http://www.newegg.com, either PC-2700 or PC-3200, which escpaes me right now, as I was building a new pc last year. Recently, I started getting a lot of errors, which quickly graduated to full-blown system crashes. I would get errors that windows tried to write to corrupt memory sector and crashed. At first I thought it was HD related and reinstalled, then I thought it was the MB (because the BIOS was corrupt, and kept corrupting) and swapped that out to a newer, better one. When I kept getting them I pulled both of my memory sticks, and tried them individually. With one, I kept getting crashes, the other is fine and my system has been running happily stable since. I was wondering if there was any further testing I needed to do to replace that stick, and if so, what, or if I should apply for and get an RMA for the stick. Sorry for the lack of complete specifics, I'm at work and the stick is at home. I'll update the info when I get home if needed. Thanks!
