richieboy Posted October 25, 2006 Share Posted October 25, 2006 Hi, I have been using a TwinX matched pair couple of XMS3200XL PT sticks (2 x 512's) of RAM for the past 12 or so months, and out of nowhere Windows XP started to reboot itself and give "Recovered from a serious error" message. I decided to run memtest86 to see if there were any problems (although i didn't expect there to be - i didn't realise RAM could be working perfectly one minute and be covered in errors the next!), but i ran it anyway and within seconds it was reporting errors all over the place, i couldnt beleive that within ONE minute it had found over 5,000 errors! I noticed it started at around 568MB (i think) and so i decided to run it with just the first stick (1 x 512) in slot0, which worked perfectly with no errors at all after running for an hour or so. I then put the second stick in all by itself (slot0) and again, after a few seconds memtest had picked up hundreds of errors... What can i do? I assume ill need to RMA this? I bought it from Overclockers.co.uk which said it had a lifetime warranty, so i hope it is still covered! Many thanks for your help...:(: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
