I believe i have a bad stick of memory

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased and installed 2 (two) Corsair Value Select 512M PC2100 266MHZ 184PIN DIMM into my Dell dimension 2350. Upon installation, I encountered System crashes, software crashes and various Memory address error pop-ups under Windows XP.


I ran the memtest86 on both modules together and also on each module seperately. When tested together 222 errors were found. When done seperatley, the first module tested returned no errors and the second module returned 222 errors. I took out the chip that reported the errors, rebooted and my system stability returned to normal. I was able to go on with my day to day tasks.


Can anyone think of any other tests to do, or should i just go ahead and request an RMA?


Thanks for any help,
