dazmoriarty Posted November 17, 2005 Share Posted November 17, 2005 Hi all, I bought 2 x CMX512-3200XLPRO (512Mb each) from Komplett.ie some months ago, but just last week I was playing Doom 3 when my new XP box bluescreened and started rebooting. Then it stopped completing the POST altogether. I reset the BIOS settings to failsafe options and it started finishing POST properly, but every time it started Windows XP, it would bluescreen after that. So, since it was a newly constructed PC, I broke it back down and even with practically everything removed apart from the bare essentials, it was BSODing. I then reseated both DIMMs - no dice. I then swapped the two DIMMs around - same problem. So then I removed one of the 2 DIMMs (the one in bank 1) and it still happened, but this time I noticed the fancy lights on the top edge (facing outwards) of the remaining DIMM was staying red. So I swapped it out for the other DIMM (i.e. put the other one in bank 0) and the machine booted immediately and perfectly! As a test I repeated the process twice and both times the results were identical. Think I have a duff DIMM. I am going to contact Komplett now for an RMA number but was wondering if there is anything else I should check beforehand? Thanks :) DazMoriarty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
