jchal Posted December 8, 2004 Share Posted December 8, 2004 I think I have a bad RAM module. Here's the situation: I plug in a 256MB Corsair DIMM to bring my system up to 512MB. No problems. 8 months go by smoothly, and suddenly (no changes to the system or setup) I start getting inconsistent errors. Programs (and parts of windows) crashing seemingly at random. After a bit of confusion and troubleshooting, I try a bit of memtest86. Bam. Hundreds of errors. Ok... take the new DIMM out, no errors. Take the old DIMM out, put the new DIMM in... Bam. Hundreds of errors. So now I've been running for a while on the old module alone. Is that RMA-able, or is there additional testing you'd like me to perform? Also, where is the PostID I should use? I've seen the cute statement: <--- Post ID# Unfortunately, I don't see any numbers to the left of my post. Has the forum format changed perhaps?
