Bad module, VS 512MB PC3200


Recommended Posts

I have been running two Value Select 512MB PC3200 modules in dual channel mode.


Recently, I received blue screens when booting the computer that i

attributed to hardware issues. After running the program Memtest86

3.1a, I found that there were errors on one of my memory sticks. I

separated the two, testing each one individually. One stick passed

the test, while the other failed. Throughout the Memtest program, the

faulty stick continuously showed errors, reaching into the 60,000

error range towards the end of the test. I figure that this means

that the stick is bad and needs to be replaced. I am quite proficient

with computer hardware and software, and I am sure that the BIOS

settings were correct, as I did have the system running well for quite

some time before I started getting errors. My system includes these

other parts:


ASUS A7N8X Deluxe rev 2.0

AMD Athlon XP Barton 3000+ (400 MHz FSB)

ATI Radeon 9800 Pro

Western Digital 120GB 7200rpm hard drive

ANTEC 400 Watt power supply

Benq 16X DVD-ROM

Lite-On 52X24X52 CD-RW drive

Sound Blaster LIVE 5.1


Thanks for any help
