Bad Stick of PC-3200 Value Select

Recommended Posts

I've been having problems with my computer randomly giving me a blue screen of death and after consulting with both my motherboard manufacturer and microsoft, I've concluded that the only problem left could be my RAM. I need an RMA for a stick of VS1GB400C3. Another reason I believe it's my RAM which is malfunctioning is that windows error report says that my paging file on my RAM is corrupt and that it is more likely to be the actual RAM modules than software.


My system specs:

AMD Athlon XP 3200+

ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe

1GB Corsair PC-3200 Value Select

ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 256 MB

160 GB Ultra ATA Samsung HD

16x Plextor DVD+/-RW

52x ASUS Quiet Track CD-R

Creative Labs Audigy 2 Gamer ZS


Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further troubleshoot this problem. Thanks. - - Kurt

With the A7N8X-E please set the FSB jumper to pins 2-3 with the modules in slots 2-3 and then reset or clear the bios and load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings manually. Then please test the system with http://www.memtest.org.
