islandsnow Posted January 15, 2006 Share Posted January 15, 2006 Now that i got your attention, I have been debugging this problem with my system this last week. I think i tried every bios setting, reflashed, tried loading xp maybe 20 times. All with failure. Since then i bought a new mobo, new hard drive, new power supply, everything pratically except the memory. The memory looked so good with the heat sinks on them that i never suspected them. Anyways, put together my new system two weeks ago, everything was fine, during a game last week, the computer rebooted and from then on would reboot randomly. I thought it was a hard disk failure since i couldn't get it to reformat. Today, I replaced the mobo, same problem, would not format the drive. So i replaced the hard drive. same problem, but now the new seagate hd came with a bootable diagnostics disk with tests for system, drive, controller, and does memory tests too. So I ran it and it failed on memory and not the hard drive or controller. So I popped one memory stick out and it failed, then put the other one back in, that one passed. So far my system has been working with the one stick of memory. I have one bad stick of memory of the corsair twinx cm2x512a-6400. Am i entitled to get an RMA after all this grief i went through and it turned out to be a defective memory stick. :mad: my system consists of Enermax maxflow server case Ultra Titanium 500w psu Asus P5WD2 Premium Seagate 300gb sata drive MSI Nvidia 7800GT video Floppy Pioneer DV-110 DVD Corsair mem Intel 640 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
