Defective VS512MB400 help.


Recommended Posts

I recently installed 512mb X 2 new matched set of pc3200 ram in a new build pc.

Upon initial boot the computer gave me a series of continius long beeps, signifying a dram error.

I re-seated the ram modules in the new motherboard and the issue did not repeat.

The ram countdown on boot then worked ok, however when i attempted to instal win xp pro several different errors occored. After hours of trouble shooting i replaced the ram modules wit some old 512mb X 2 pc2700 ram and the error never happened again. to confirm this i once again put in the pc3200 ram and error occered once again. I can't help but to consider That the ram fails once is up to operating temp.

I was told I have to seek tech. support before a warranty is considered.

Please advise, Ryan

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure one is not failing. But from what you have posted I would try and test the modules on another make and model of MB to be sure its not a MB/CPU problem.
