Bad Modules


Recommended Posts

I purchased on 1/21/2006 a twin pair of: TwinX 2048-3200C2 memory with the black heat spreader. Product numbers are: CMX1024-3200C2 XMS3202v2.2 0601003-2. Installed and everything worked fantastic until 3/22/2006 I started having random reboots and shutdowns. I took out my "new" upgrade of 2G ram and installed the "old" (but still good) 1G of ram. System ran just fine (not as good for gaming). We took the 2G 2048-3200C2 twin pair and put it in my husbands machine, same problems. It would randomly reboot. We were able to run MemTest86 on both sticks, and both failed. I need an RMA.

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?

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS2700C2 Cass 2-3-3-6 for example and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
