Got a bad VS1GB400C3


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

I bought 2 x 1GB(VS1GB400C3) memory sticks on May, 2005. Around DEc. 2005, one of the memory stick failed on test #7 of memtest86+. I got the RMA and got replacement last week.


However, the new problem shown up.


The new replacement stick (4094-0547034-0-xxxxxx) looks different with my old one(780-0520138-0-yyyyyy) although they are all VS1GB400C3.


I tested both sticks with memtest86+ separately. They both works fine.


But if I used two sticks together, I will get lots of blue screens.. (several times for one night). The strange thing is: if I used either one, it was OK.


By the way, I am sure the dimm slots are ok. And my machine is OK since I tested it with 2x1GB Kingstone ram without any issue.



Are these two sticks of ram somehow in-compatible(their SN looks so different and the chips layout are different either) if they will use together?

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?
