1gb kit faulty?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, here's one for you. I have had this kit (2 512 GB ddr 400 - vs1gbkit400) installed in my pc since May. Went to install Half Life2 to try out DOD and Steam wouldn't launch. Gave up and went to play a little WOW. Got an error "bad batch file". Have never had any issues with either of these two games. Ran the windows Memtest through 5 loops, no problems. Went to check WinUpdate, got a system error, then windows explorer crashed on me. At first I thought my HD was going down, so I reformatted and went to install winxp. Windows would boot, but not load past the welcome screen. Swapped both moduals out and all stability issues went away. Never had ram just "go bad". Would like to get a ticket number to RMA.
