DigiShaman Posted March 7, 2005 Share Posted March 7, 2005 I have two sticks of 512MB PC3200 DDR SODIMM (VS512SDS400) installed in my Acer Ferrari 3200 laptop. After I installed both SODIMMs, I ran Memtest with bitfade test all night long. It passed the tests without failure. Now comes three months later or more. After I started getting messages of programs performing illegal operations and XP giving me random boot file errors, I suspected maybe a bad drive and ran extended diagnostics from Hitachi. They past flawlessly. However, when I ran Memtest and Memtest+, I've been getting errors on test 6. In fact, the errors are consistant with certain regions of the memory. So I suspected a faultly SODIMM and not mearly a timing issue. Sure enough, when I tested each SODIMM by itself I was able to isolate the faulty stick. Memtest always reported the following addresses as faulty. 0000001f6f8 0000321f6f8 0000261f6f8 0000101f6f8 00005c1f6f8 0000081f6f8 0000239f6f8 0000139f6f8 00005d9f6f8 These addresses don't do me much use other then determining I have a faulty stick with constant failure points. I would appreciate being granted official RMA status so that I may return the faulty SODIMM. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
