bluecinnabar Posted December 20, 2005 Share Posted December 20, 2005 I recently bought 1gb (2X512MB) of valueselect memory from Monarch Computers, upon installation, with no problems recognizing the memory, my system ran fine for about a day, then the problems started. Some programs would crash without warning, which led to think it was hard-drive corruption, i tried reinstalling but couldn't get my cd's to read, I got a few blue screens of death that pointed to something wrong with the memory. Running mem86 gave me errors. I tried some reconfiguration, switching the ram to different slots, but to no avail, still got some problems. Luckily I still had the old ram and plugged those in, the system ran without problems, at this point I'm sure the Corsair memory is the culprit but I decided to try some mismatching (old ram + corsair ram). The system had no problem recognizing the the memory, I did some more swapping, using one stick at a time paired with the old ram, I managed to single out the defective module (the one that caused my system to crash when paired with the old ram). The other module is currently in the system with the old module and has been running without problems since. I think I did all I could to find the problem, and my system has been running fine since, with one of the 512 corsair module and a 512 centon module (the old ram), the defective module is out and not being used at the moment. I'm looking to get an RMA number, and I'm open to any suggestions I might try to verify my problem, thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
