512MB DDR 2700, maybe defective

Recommended Posts

Ive had this stick of 512 for over two years and never had system stability. lots of random reboots. Trying to track it to my harddrive or to RAM. What is a good utility to do so? ive heard of Memtest but also heard that software tests are not definitive.

 

Also, if the RAM is defective, do i have a hope in hell of doing an advance RMA with Corsair?

 

Heres what Im running in case there are any known compatibility issues

 

antec truepower atx12v TRUE380

HD IBM 120 GB 7200RPM

CPU AMD XP 2600 OEM

MB: ABIT-)11 NF& nForce2

RAM: CORSAIR 512MB DDR 2700, maybe defective, 1 stick of XXXXXXXXX 512

which I took out becasue th eother tech guy said it was hindering the

more powerful stick.

Soudn Card: SB Audigy 2 platinum

CRRW PLEXTOR 48x24x48

 

Thanks

Have you been running the Corsair stick with the other stick for two years?

This would explain all your problems.

You should'nt mix different brands/types of RAM.

Does the Corsair stick work by itself?

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.

You mean choose these settings in memtest?

 

How do I know what module I have? Just take the RAM out and look?

 

The other stick has been taken out.

 

Thanks
