Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then test the module/modules 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. In addition, with this MB you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

i have already tested the suspected faulty piece by itself and it does not work..just powers on and off repeatedly...and i also set the Dim voltage to 2.1, again one piece works fine but the other one powers on and off. Anyways, should i ship it back to corsair or newegg? who would fix my problem faster ? and do i have to return both sticks or ram? thanks for your help Ram guy.

Ram Guy,

 

I also have a bad stick of ram. I have followed all the above directions and still have the same issue. My computer keeps giving me registry errors, and dumps with this one stick in. I bought a pair of vs256mb266 and the one works great, but the other does as stated above. I am new to the posting thing and could not find where to start a new post. Can you help?
