Hodapp87 Posted December 10, 2005 Share Posted December 10, 2005 Hello... I bought two 512 MB ValueSelect DDR400 sticks in June. Everything worked fine until later October when random hard crashes started to occur. I am not overclocking; everything is cooled properly and is running at a normal speed. The crashes only proceeded to become more frequent. What I tried: - Checking all temperatures in my system; nothing was over 120 F. - memtest86+ for 10 hours, which strangely revealed no errors - cpuburn-in for 10 hours, which revealed no errors - Switching to a different operating system; running in textmode only - Memory tests from the Knoppix LiveCD (no errors, but they made it crash) - Reducing the system down, one part at a time - Moving RAM to different slots What this eventually produced was that one particular Corsair RAM stick was causing the crashes; near the end of the testing, plugging it in would often crash the system within 15 minutes. I haven't yet run memtest86+ again because I required the computer for work and didn't want to risk crashing it at a critical time.
