kfedaddy2k Posted November 26, 2004 Share Posted November 26, 2004 I had two sticks of CMX256A-3200C3PT memory running on my MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R motherboard. Operating system is Windows XP Pro, SP2. I have had them running dual channel (slot 1 and 3) for over a year now. About 3 weeks ago i started having random problems that usually ended in the system rebooting itself without warning. I received numerous errors, each one a little different. All were pointing to hardware problems when researching the windows error codes. After a week or so troubleshooting I downloaded MemTest-86 v3.2. It gave me errors on each test at 280.9MB is what it said. I then took the second stick of RAM out of slot 3 and re-ran the test, this time without a single error. I swapped the sticks, putting what was the second stick in slot 1 and removing the other one all together. This time it again failed every test that memtest-86 through at it. This leads me to believe that the second (slot 3) stick had gone bad. I attempted to return the memory to the place I had purchased it (PC Club) and I was told since it was over a year since I had bought it that I needed to deal directly with Corsair for warranty replacement. So here I am. If anyone has any ideas on any other possible fixes, I'd appreciate the assistance. Otherwise I will be filling out an RMA request soon.
