Bad memory

Recommended Posts

I took my computer to a local shop (Cheap Guy's Computers) for troubleshooting after getting caught in a perpetual boot loop. Cheap Guys says it is a bad RAM module. The module is part of a "matched set". How do I go about getting this replaced under warranty?

Cheap Guys? Hehe, which store? How did they say they tested them?

 

What CPU / FSB / Motherboard do you have?

 

What is the exact part # and revision # of each stick? Are they a TwinX pack?

How To Read the Memory Label

 

Did you buy the memory at Cheap Guys?

 

 

The east Orlando store and no, they did not say how they were tested. Only that there were bad "blocks" or something like that.

 

I have the ASUS P4P800 Mobo with 800 Mhz FSB using the P4 2.8 Ghz CPU.

 

The part no. of the bad RAM is CMX512-3200LLPT, revision no. 1.1. They are a TWINX pack. Lot no. is 0319081.

 

I bought these from Monarch Computer Systems in Tucker, GA

Did I mention that Cheap Guys found that only one of the modules was bad?
