bad ram module


Recommended Posts

My computer was having a lot of problems with starting slowly, random restarts, blue screens, etc, so I decided to wipe the drive, thinking the file system had gone bad. I was in the process of reinstalling Windows XP when it began reporting that it couldn't read the files on the CD. This was a newly burned CD from an image that I'd used multiple times. I started with adjusting my BIOS settings for compatability (turning off USB, lowering AGP settings, etc). That didn't change anything, so I started removing individual DIMMS and it worked when I pulled a certain one out. I am positive this DIMM is bad and would like your help. Below is all the information on the RAM's sticker:

 

CMX512-3200C2PT XMS3202v5.2 0602111-0

 

Thanks.

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.
