tooslow Posted February 27, 2005 Share Posted February 27, 2005 The past month, I've been having random instances of my PC shutting down or crashing. Now when I say shut down, I don't mean it physically powers down, but the screen goes blank. I thought it was the video card. Replaced that, with no luck. Also re-formatted, again with no luck. Here are my system specs: Corsair-3200XLPRO 512 x2 Abit IC7-G P4 3Ghz ATI 9700 Pro AIW OCZ 520W WD 180G HD Xp Pro I have also pulled one stick out and then swapped them around. Every time the computer will eventually crash. A friend came over and let me test out his cheaper Crucial memory. No problems there. I then read the FAQ here and made a boot floppy of MemTest. MemTest failed with both sticks installed, as well as each stick installed individually. I really do not see how both sticks could possibly go bad around the same time. I've already contacted my retailer(zipzoomfly.com), and they've instructed me to come here. I do have receipts showing me as the original purchaser. I've followed the "I think I have a bad part" FAQ, and here I am. I am open for other suggestions, as this is really frustrating. I've also taken pics of the errors that MemTest has detected, and will post them if that may possibly help. All errors were detected during "test 5". Thanks.
