Bad Memory Module


Recommended Posts



I believe I have a bad bad memory module. I've been using 4 of the twinx 400MHz 256mb memory for over a year now. Lately my computer's been crashing while playing certain games. I originally ran a memory diagnostic and nothing was detected. My system started crashing more often so I checked them out myself. I tried booting my system with each of the memory modules in different pairs, and whenever i use a particular one, my computer will not boot up. I need to get a replacement.

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.
