Bad stick of RAM

In the process of upgrading my box, I moved my Corsair RAM to my daughter's new PC. After assembling her PC, the installation of the OS failed. Since there were many possiblities for the cause of the failure it took me a while to narrow down and finally pin-point the cause.

 

Using the memory test tool from MS, (http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp), I found that one of the two Corsair memory sticks is bad. This result was cross-checked by using different memory slots with different combinations of RAM on the motherboard.

 

Compusa will not exchange the part since it was purchased over a year ago. Please issue an RA for Corsair PC2700 Platinum Series, TWINX CMX256A-2700LLPT.
