RAM Failure


Recommended Posts

System Crashed to Blue Screen, would not reboot. Since it was new RAM couldn't believe it had failed. Ran Chkdsk, found corrupted hard drive Errors, kept coming back to "Nonpaged Fault Error" and corrupted ntfs.sys. Should have checked memory first, but did a reformat of the hardrive (damn).


Ran Memtest86+ V1.65 - and uncovered a massive amount of memory errors (86,000 errors just through Tests 1 & 2). This memory was not overclocked. The bios was set to default for all voltages, timings etc.. (It was new ram and I didn't want to screw it up).


I require a posting number so I can fill out form for RMA.
