hodnik Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 Hey Ram Guy and others.. Picked up some new parts recently (about a month ago) to put together a new computer. Some parts that may be of interest for figuring this out.. e6600, p5b deluxe, CORSAIR XMS2 2GB TWIN2X2048-6400C4. I had some initial install troubles that I figured were just some quirks in my new system. Installing windows would hang, and the ocasionaly blue screen. Eventually got windows installed and for the past few weeks have been running fine. Today I turned my computer on and it would hang after a few minutes. Sometimes it would not boot, sometimes it would work for a bit, then just freeze, forcing me to turn it off via the power button. I figured I would try memtest. First memtest with both sticks revealed thousands of errors. Then I tried one stick at time. One stick would run through memtest fine. The other stick would start building up with errors instantly. I then tried booting with each stick. The hangs and freezing occured with the one stick, and then with the other stick I was able to play games, go through a couple prime95 tests without hanging etc. To me it seems one of my sticks is failing on me, but would like your opinions. I purchased it at newegg so could either RMA through them or through Corsair directly. Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated, Dan. For reference, I am adding some links to pictures I took with my phone of memtest running. one shows with both sticks and the other shows with just one stick. I am tried with the 'good' stick, and have shown no errors. http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l61/hodnik/SSPX0074.jpg http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l61/hodnik/SSPX0073.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
