One of my CMX1024 3200C2PRO failed

This is on a computer that has been running since April 2006.

Computer stopped booting up and just giving fatal errors.

Tried booting to Win XP cd to run a recovery and it would just reboot in the middle of loading the install package.

Tried an install of a fresh Win XP on a new hard drive and it would just reboot in the middle of loading the install package.

 

Mobo: AN832-SLI Deluxe

2 1 GB Matched sticks of CMX1024 3200C2PRO

 

Mobo bios set to default, memory voltage set to 2.7 at cas and 3-3-3-8 with Legacy USB disabled.

 

Using Memtest 3.1 (booted from cd)

 

With both sticks in I get errors right from the very start with errors continuing as long as the test is running.

 

I left the stick in slot one and pulled the other, ran the test with no errors.

I took out the "test passing" stick.

 

I inserted the other stick in the first slot and tried to boot from cd and got a message that my bios couldn't be found and needed to be reinstalled.

I reseated the same stick and ended up with the same error.

 

I took out the "bad stick" and put in the "passing stick" and ran Memtest with no errors.

 

Is there anything I've missed? I think I have a bad stick from a matched pair.

I like the new feature were the bottom half of the screen turned red to clearly show the errors. :o: Unfortunately I saw that new feature. :(:

 

I followed the same procedure I stated in the first post and had the same result.

 

Anything magic up your sleeve? What's next?
