One of my TwinX modules has bit the dust...


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I've done some tests, and I think that one of my Corsair TwinX modules (256mb) is no longer any good.


I found my (Windows XP) partition very unstable - locking during startup, crashing spuriously, etc. Booting into Linux confirmed my suspicions - lots of segfaults happened.


So I burned a copy of memtest86 and ran it - a few addresses gave errors. So I took out the module in slot # 2 and found no errors after a few hours of runs on the first module. Then I took that module and put it in slot #2 - no errors. I put the questionabler module in slot #1 and got more errors.


This says to me that module #2 is bad. I'd like to get my machine back up to full capacity - any suggestions?




Sorry - I didn't put up my specs:


Asus P4P800 Deluxe

2 x 256 CMX255A-3200LLPT RAM

Intel P4 2.8 HT

Western Digital 80gb IDE

IBM 40gb ide


Asus V9950 (Geforce FX 5900)

Creative Labs Audigy 2


Running: Windows XP SP2 and Fedora Core 4
