vs2gbkit400c3 - faulty module


Recommended Posts

I have a 2*1gig kit, after a few crashes that windows claimed were unknown hardware errors i had a bit of a look at some of the possible contenders.


I used a memory stability test from rightmark memory analyser, it turned up a few hundred errors each time i ran the test. As i could only reserve about half the ram for testing while running under windows i downloaded an image for a bootdisc that runs a ram test.


The ram failed: mats+, stride6, wmats+, winvc...


The address of the errors (e.g. 2227ad5c) always started with a 2227 which makes me think the fault is fairly localised.


My retailer (dabs.com) has advised me that while they are happy to accept a return, it will take 4-6weeks untill i recieve a replacement :eek:


??I think it is pretty clear that the ram is not working perfectly, but would you advise any additional testing?


??Given that i'm based in the UK mainland, would i be better off (faster than 4-6 weeks) to deal direct wirh corsair? presumably they ship replacements globally from Fremont, CA. I don't suppose corsair have any locations in europe that would deal with an rma by any chance? :sigh!:



Cheers ram guy :biggrin:

Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.75 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.
