Damaged VS1GBKIT400?


Recommended Posts

Dear Ram Guy,

About 4 months ago I purchased computer hardware from Zipzoomfly.com, to build a PC, the components are as follows….


-Corsair VS1GBKIT400 1GB Kit DDR400 PC3200 CAS2.5 Value Select Memory x 2


-Asus P4C800-E Deluxe i875P P4 800FSB Skt478 DDR ATX Motherboard w/Audio, Gigabit LAN, RAID/Serial ATA Retail (Prescott Ready)


-Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor Prescott 3EGHz, 800MHz FSB, Socket 478, 1MB


-Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80GB Ultra ATA/100


-ATI Radeon 9800 PRO AGP 8X 256MB DDR


I put the PC together and everything worked fine for 3 days. When I closed the programs: Rhinoceros 3d, and Adobe Illustrator, I got the Blue screen of death- which explained there was something wrong with the RAM. So I removed 3 of the 512mb sticks and it ran fine. Then add one and then another and the PC ran fine. But when I inserted the last 512 stick I got the blue screen, so I took it out. The Pc has been running fine with 1.5gb of ram.


The other day I put the 4th 512mb stick back into the Motherboard. Windows XP loaded then I got the blue screen saying: “Technical Info: ***stop:0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0x80561d58, 0xf78de85c, 0xf780f558).


I came to the conclusion that the 4th 512mb corsair stick is damaged. I could try other configurations and run test programs but I am afraid I might make things worse.


What is the best way to fix the 512mb stick?


thank you for your time.
