Bad Memory Stick

Recommended Posts

I purchased 2 sticks of Corsair XMS memory (CMX512-3200C2) about a year and a half ago. A couple of days ago my computer would not boot up. It only gave me a black screen when power was applied. I had another MB laying around (ABIT) and another processor of the same type (AMD Athlon 64 3200). I was planning on building another machine. Anyway, I transferred all my components (processor, memory, HD, Floppy, etc.) to the ABIT MB, thinking it was the cause of the problem. Upon booting up....same thing, black screen. I then tried the other processor. Same thing....black screen. At this point, all I could figure was memory. I removed 1 stick and was able to get a successful boot. I tried the other stick (by itself)...no boot. I believe this module is bad and would like to RMA, if possible. I'm quite sure that the retailer will not honor any kind of return this long after purchase.
