Computer will only run on 1 ram stick. Most of the time.


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if I have a Ram, Motherboard, or Power supply problem. One of the sticks of ram will only boot in ram slot 2, and it usually won't boot at all if both sticks are installed. The few times it did, it froze on the black in-between screen upon just entering windows. I've posted a query with Experts-Exchange.com here and sent an tech support request to chaintech as well. That one of the ram will only work in one of the slots makes me think there's a glich in that ram stick.

I let memtest run untill the first (the co-operative) ram stick reached 6 passed tests (no errors). However, the second ram stick is refusing to run. The computer gives the beep code error no matter which slot it's in, with or without the other ram stick. I'm thinking I got one good ram and one bad ram. Should I try exchanging them with the manufacturer (Corsair)? It's past the 15 days after shipping do try returning them to the Dealer (ZipZoomFly.com; they shipped it out 12/13/04).
