zpacam Posted November 21, 2004 Share Posted November 21, 2004 I purchased a matching pair of RAM from Newegg last month. (2x512mb, ValueSelect, PC3200 - Part VS512MB400 Lot 0440029-0) Everything was able to load correctly until I began running games. I had occasional lock-ups which required hard reboots. I thought it could possibly be the RAM and sure enough, after playing around with memtest for several hours, I found the bad stick. I originally ran memtest overnight with both DIMMs installed and it found 31 errors in an 8 hour time span. I then ran each DIMM individually and almost immediately one of the DIMMs showed errors. The other went through the test fine. For the record, here are my other system specs: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (939) MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum ATI Radeon 9800pro Antec Sonata (with 380w Antec Truepower PSU) Seagate SATA 7200.7 80gb All settings are stock with no overclock/changes. BIOS is updated to the latest revision (1.4 I believe). Anything else I should try before RMAing??? Also, will I need to RMA both sticks since I purchased them as a twin pack? (I hope not, or I will be computerless for a while!) Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
