Sgtspoon Posted November 22, 2004 Share Posted November 22, 2004 hello, i'm running an asus a7n8x deluxe board with an amd barton [333mhz] 2500+ and installed two cmx512-2700c2 sticks in dual channel mode about 6 months or so ago. then i started experiencing some crashes but not right away and the post report would give me the occational bad ram error but upon reboot it was cleared, thought it was my vid card and replaced it [upgraded anyway]. then the crashes still were happening but it was so infrequent i thought it was simply a silly windows error but with some of the newer software i've been using [games] i've been experiencing alot of crashes and decided to finally memtest 86 my ram... started in dual channel and ran the complete battery of tests for 100 passes and kepy getting errors in test 5 in the same memory area... so i pulled one chip and tested in single channel mode and came up with errors in almost every pass of test 5, from one error a pass to 86 errors in a pass... then i tested the other chip and it came up clean after 100 passes... oh i ran the test with the optimal memory timings, 2-3-3-3-7 so i definatly have a bad ram chip, since only the one presents with errors in the number 5 memtest... and going back to my reseller is more hassel than it's worth, would rather do this directly through the mail as i am disabled and in a wheelchair.. oh and my bios is the latest version and everythings up to date. what do i do now? fill out an rma form? thanks for your reply in advance, sgtspoon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
