Bad Memory Module - Please Help


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)






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?
