1g stick of RAM died


Tenedor

Recommended Posts

I have one stick of CMX1024-3200C2 which is about 7 months old. Yesterday my computer started to restart randomly, so I loaded the windows update that was available, after which my computer would not boot whatsoever. I would get an error stating that a certain essential Windows file was corrupted or missing. At this point, I tried to repair Windows using the Windows XP CD, but I could not get past the first screen because I would get the BSoD listing the following error: Stop: 0x0000008E (0x00000005, 0x808A9217, 0xF7332044, 0x00000000).

That is the page with information about this error message, stating that it is due to bad RAM (or that the RAM is incompatible with Windows, but I have had it in there for 7 months with no problems). The only thing I can think of to do is to RMA the part for a replacement. Unfortunately, I am about to go on vacation, so most of this will have to wait for 9 days, but any help now would be much appreciated. Thank you.

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?

MB = ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail (according to the site I bought it from)

 

CPU = 2.0GHz (both cores, no overclocking), 200MHz FSB

 

BIOS settings = default

 

And, as stated earlier, no overclocking was done whatsoever, everything is running as it came out of the box.

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.
