Bad ram stick


caeld

Recommended Posts

I bought the corsair Value Select RAM from Fry's Electronics a couple months ago. It is the VS512MB400 model dual channel memory. When playing games, the computer would reboot on me. I ran Memtest86 on it, and on Test 6, the moving inversions, I received many errors with the location in the range of the last stick. I removed the last stick and ran the test again, and there were no errors. Also, the computer doesn't reboot on me during gameplay anymore. Is the stick that I removed bad, and what can I do about it?

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS2700C2 Cass 2-3-3-6 for example or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
