defect ram module?


Recommended Posts



I have 2x512mb corsair valueselect ram modules and since i got them a couple of bluescreens.


I tested them together in following various positions (and also switched the slots):


Let's call the working ram module "A" and the defect (?) one "B"


A + B = bluescreens, doesn't matter which slot of the motherboard

A = no bluescreens

B = bluescreens, doesn't matter which slot of the motherboard


Well, I hope for help here, I didn't found it somewhere else (friends, boards, ..)


Thanks for (hopefully) a lot of replys!

Well, i don't really know which is the correct one, I'll post all I see:


on a sticker:


LOT: 0313051


on the module:

VS32MB5-5 (many spaces) 2B0350


Which is the correct one?

Is one of this the correct one?

I'm trying my best, as a hardware-newbie..


MB = motherboard?

If yes: I have an ASRock P4VT8+

cpu speed: 3000mhz (pentium IV)

fsb: 200


I'll add the bios settings in 10 minutes and edit my post.

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings to "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.

Just to add the BIOS-Settings (all that I think are possible important) before changing:


Processor Type: Pentium ® 4 CPU

Processor Speed: 3000 MHz

Cache Size: 512 KB

Total Memory: 512MB

- DDR1: 512MB/200MHz (DDR 400)

- DDR2+3: none

CPU Host Frequency: Auto

-Actual Frequency: 200MHz

DRAM Frequency: 200MHz (DDR 400)

Flexibilty Option: Disabled

DRAM CAS# Latency: Auto

Hyper Threading Technology: Auto

DRAM Voltage: Normal

(menu item "POWER")

Suspend to RAM: Disabled


What should I change?

DRAM Voltage?

Sorry for not knowing anything. :confused:


When I tested it (tomorrow), should I go to "on-line RMA" or better to "tsxpress"?

What's the easiest (for anyone with no clue) and fastest way?


I thank you a lot for your fast and plain answers!
