garygunn Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 I think I received a bad memory module. I purchased 2 pieces of ValueSelect 1GB DDR2, part # VS1GB533D2. One piece works fine, the other piece fails and stops the pc from booting. Bad piece is serial # 5211-0550034-0-500890. When the bad piece is in the computer, the video doesn't come on and there is no beeping. After putting good memory back in, I notice the bios setting for the presence of a floppy drive has been changed. I think the perhaps the bad memory has a short that pulls down the power supply voltage. One piece works fine, in either slot, by itself or in combo with a 256MB piece. The other piece fails, in either slot, by itself or with another piece. Computer is a Dell Diminsion E310, just purchased in December 2005. P4-2800, two DDR2 slots. It came with 2 pieces of 256 MB DDR2 PC4200. I would like RMA # to return for exchange. Gary Gunn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
