Bad Stick of Ram


Recommended Posts

I have been having issues while gaming on my computer for the last few months. I have done all the driver updates for my MB and video card as well as all the windows updates and nothing seems to help. I tested my ram with memtestx86 and found some errors during the test. I wanted to make sure that this was just a memory issue and not a processor or MB issue so I test another one of my PCs with the program and it tested without any errors. So then I took the ram from the main computer and tested it in the second computer and still got errors from memtest. I then took the other ram that was originally in the second computer and put it in my main computer and did not get any errors from memtest at all. I then tested each stick of ram sperately and found that only one of the sticks was getting errors during the test.

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 or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with http://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.
