Possible Bad dual channel kit module


Recommended Posts

Windows XP recently crashed with me after reporting that it had recovered the registry. After the crash, it would simply reboot over and over while trying to start. Sometimes it would give a stop error. I tried to reinstall Windows, thinking some files might be corrupt. The setup would report over several times that some files could not be copied. I though the CD was scratched so I had it buffed but that didn't help either. One time though, setup crashed with a stop error for MEMORY_MANAGER. I then removed one of my modules and setup went through without a hitch. I believe this one memory module is bad


I have had some trouble with programs running slow and crashing before this and even outputting unuseable files, such as movies. My main question is when I send the memory in for warranty, will I have to send in both modules since they were bought as a match set?

I just got through running memtest on both modules, here are the results:


Module 1:


Tst Pass Failing Address Good Bad Err-Bits Count


7 0 0015b7dd28 - 347.8 MB 37cdc37a 37cd437a 000080000 7



Module 2:


System failed to boot


side note: my board only allowed Dram voltage of 2.6, 2.65, 2.7, and 2.8 (there are some higher and lower)

I had it set to 2.7V
