Failed Memory Stick

Recommended Posts

Corsair says I must have contact with tech support before I can get a request for an RMA, so here goes: I have had "blue screens of death" (BSOD) intermittenly for a couple of years now, maybe once quarterly, until a couple of weeks ago. At that time windows would shutdown (BSOD)within minutes of booting. I did uninstall my most recent hardware install but this did not help. To make a long story short, I ordered a new stick of memory from a Corsair dealer. The same DIMM DDR 266 that I used when I built the pc. It fixed the problem. My pc has been running continuously for a week now with no more BSOD.


Tech Support, please respond to this so I can get a RMA.

I could send a photo if you would tell me how?

Please call her at 888-222-4346 and dial "0" that will take you right to her.

Also we do not post anyones direct phone# or email on the forum. So it was removed from your post. And I would remove your info as well if it had been posted.
