Recommended Posts

Just looking to start the rma test, I sent off a detailed email already but have yet to recieve a response. Here is a quick list of the troubleshooting tests to verify 1 bad memory module.


Pagefault windows crash with memory dump

IRQ_LESS_THAN_EQUAL Stop 0x000005 error on windows boot


restart safe mode


PCF Stop error on safe mode boot


restart on windows cd


PCF stop error on windows cd load


restart with 1 out of 2 modules


system load


restart with the other 1 our of 2 modules


system crash


restart with the other module, download memtest86


make memtest bootdisk


shutdown, swap to suspected bad stick


run memtest for 4 hours - cancel test - 4000+ errors


swap modules


run memtest for 12 hours (overnight) cancel test - no errors

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and test the suspect module with http://www.memtest.org. If you do still get errors then, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!


Ok, I'll up the voltage from 2.5 ro 2.7 and run memtest again.
