Bad Module - (2x512Mb) XMS 3200 XLPT

Recently came home to find my system had crashed -

 

Shuttle SN25p

X2 4400+

Corsair XMS 3200 2x512Mb

ATi Saphire X300

NEC 3500+ DVD drive

3*Maxtor Hard drives (2*IDE and 1*SATA, one external Maxtor drive

 

Tried to reboot and the system froze during startup whilst the bios was trying to recognise the Hard drives. Reset the bios and cleared CMOS as according to the instructions given by shuttle, pc still froze during startup. Then tried the RAM in another Nforce2 motherboard, and that refused to boot at all, but worked perfectly with a generic 512 stick in. Then took the RAM to a local computer shop and their test rig wouldnt boot with it in either. would it be safe to say that it should be RMA'd to Corsair?

 

cheers!

voltages are permanantly set to 2.8 volts on the shop test system and on this system, the other computer i used to test them auto detects and sets my friends borrowed sticks at 2.8volts (my friends are identical sticks to mine) so i would assume it did the same with my ram.

The default voltage is 2.6 Volts I have never seen any MB auto set the memroy voltage to anything higher than 2.65 Volts. And shuttle will default to 2.58-2.64 Volts. What is the make and model of your MB's that you used to test?

the motherboard is i believe a Soltek, however, it can be 'dodgey' so autodetecting ram at 2.8votls would not be out of the ordinary...

 

however, the shop computer and my shuttle SN25p both have the ram voltages set at 2.8 volts permenantly and the ram doesn't work when in the systems.
