mustainerocks Posted January 14, 2007 Share Posted January 14, 2007 Hello, About three weeks ago I added one stick of CMX512-3200C2 to my system to bump the RAM up from 1.0GB to 1.5GB. The other RAM in the system was also CMX512-3200C2, two of them. Everything ran fine for three weeks and I noticed the proper speed increase from adding the extra 512. After the three weeks, however, my system locked up in mid-use (just using the internet at the time). After that the PC would usually freeze while loading windows. Although sometimes I could get into windows, it would only last about 3 minutes before a BSOD and restart. I also tried booting a Linux LiveCD too, with similar results. After isolating each stick of RAM and trying different slots, I found that it was this new one that was bad. Given this, I'm quite certain this RAM is faulty and needs to be replaced.
