Having problems with RAM


Recommended Posts

Hello, My dad just recently purchased 2 X 512 sticks of corsair value select ram from Newegg. He found out that he only had 3 slots so he had an extra 512 stick laying around. The stick he gave me is again a Corsair Value Select, 512 400 mhz ram, and i paired it with my 1gb of Mushkin ram. I noticed an increase in system speed and unfortunately reliability.

Basically to help out for those confused - between my dad and i before he bought the new ram, i had 2 corsair value select ram chips in my computer, and he had 2 mushkin. after he bought the new one, he wanted all three corsair, so i kept one of the old corsairs, took his mushkin, and he has 2 new corsairs and 1 old corsair. Well i get the old corsair I got, and it turns out to be a dead memory module

ive ran it under memory test 86 by itself, in different slots, with the other ram in every way possible, Previously it had not been having a problem as i have ran this ram with my computer when i bought the corsair a year ago. I do not have it overclocked, i do have it set to 1t timing and normal voltages.

Do i have a bad memory module!! please help! thanks so much!

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.
