One Twin CMX1024-3200C2PT appears bad


Recommended Posts

System wouldnt boot up without blue screening.

Tried reinstalling XP but wouldnt allow me to.


Bought new HD thinking perhaps that was it.

Couldnt install XP on the new hard-drive (let alone format it)


Read some posts about stripping system down to min and try to boot.

Did that and removed one of the memory sticks.

Booted up fine and got another HDD installed even though i didnt need it.


Swapped the memory sticks in slot 1 and the problem re-occured.


Appears fairly certain that the one stick is bad since the other allows the system to run fine but replacing the good with the bad one results in crashes.


Please let me know how to proceed.


Thank you.

Please 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.
