Bad ValueSelect 512MB module


ChinStrap

Recommended Posts

Hi there. Today errors that indicate bad ram started to happen (BSOD's, random freezes) and I feared that a stick was bad. I have 2 512 sticks, so I took one out, ran Memtest, and on test #1 I got over 1000 errors. I let Memtest run on the second stick, no errors, and the computer runs fine again with just the second stick in there.

 

It isn't the BIOS settings as it has been running fine with the same settings for 2 months.

 

I think it is pretty conclusive, but do I have a bad module?

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.
