Bad Stick of CMX512 - 3200C2

Recommended Posts

Purchased memory from newegg.com in june of 2003. After 1 year of my system working perfectly, my power supply unit stopped working. Replaced power supply and after 15 minutes of use, the computer turns off, or just restarts. Replaced the memory and computer runs perfectly again, i would like to RMA this memory for a new stick.

Then test the modules one at a time with http://www..memtest.org.

Reset bios defaults, and changed settings posted above. Ran memtest and did not show any errors. After test i rebooted into windows and began having the same problems as before, computer would stop functioning and restart randomly. I replaced the ram with a new stick and computer works perfectly, and stable. After many tests it seems that this XMS memory still isn't working correctly in my system. I would like to exchange this please, thank you!
