Bad Memory Module - Please Help


data77

Recommended Posts

My system has been running fine for 2.5 years but starting last week my system hangs when running some memory intensive apps and games started crashing. I believe I have a bad memory module because I took one of the modules out (I have 2x512) everything runs fine just slower now :(

 

Memory Info (2 modules)

CMX512-3500C2

XMS3502v1.1

024705

 

System

Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe (nforce2 revision 1)

2x512 XMS3500 DIMMS

AMD Athlon XP 2800+

Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2

ATI 9800 Pro Video Card

 

BIOS Settings

Memory Timings 5-2-2-2T (tried 6-3-3-2.5T but did not fix issue)

FSB 166MHz

Clock Multiplier 14

 

Anything else I can try? Or should I go ahead and RMA the module?

 

Thanks,

Nick
