toe067 Posted December 11, 2004 Share Posted December 11, 2004 I have an inspiron 9100 and upgraded to 2x cmxsd512-3200LL. I got the xms memory because a bunch of people w/ i9100 and XPS laptops said it worked great and I've never had problems w/ corsair before. Anyway, one of the modules burned up 3 hrs after installation and some stability issues. Newegg replaced it pretty quickly but I'm having the same issues with new one. The only way I can get either of them to work is to slow it down by pairing it with something different and slower. I tested them w/ memtest86+ and got some subpar results. The first time it got 423 errors in the first pass and locked up after 30 mins. the second tie it locked up after five mins w/ no errors. The third try I got 1445 errors after the second pass and it locked up after only 50 mins. So am I just unlucky... is it the dual memory controllers, the heat, or am I just missing something? btw: I also noticed the replacement module had a different board layout. Does that make a difference? Thanks in advance. :o: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
