Bad Memory Stick: TWIN2X2048-64000

Recommended Posts

I purchased a TWIN2X2048-64000 2GB DDR-800 XMS@-6400 Xtreme kit from ZipZoomFly on 2/26/2007.


The computer worked fine with this memory in it for about 3 weeks (nothing had been altered inside the case from the first time it was built). However, on April first while I was playing a video game and rendering from a 3D program the computer restarted itself. After it came back on my programs were corrupt along with Windows XP Pro. I attempted to repair and reinstall Windows multiple times with no success.


I then attempted to install Windows with only one memory stick at a time. The first attempt was unsuccessful. The second attempt with the other memory stick was successful and the computer has been running problem free with only the one stick since then.


I also attempted to start the already functioning computer with the stick that did not allow Windows to install and it only lets the computer turn on and attempt to boot up, but before it gets to turn on windows it restarts and repeats this cycle continuously.


From these tests I believe that the problem is I have one memory stick that has stop functioning properly.


Please let me know what I need to do to return these memory sticks. (If it's possible, return the malfunctioning one only since I will be in trouble without the computer, but I read you require the return in pairs)


Here are the other components that make up the computer.

-Asus P5B Deluxe P965

-Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 GHz

-Asus EN7950GT

-Antec 500W SmartPower Supply


Thank you for you help.

Just one user to another: Take a look at the FAQ on the P5B series boards. You may need to boost the voltage on the RAM to 2.1v and change the precharge setting from 10 to 15(just went through this and saw your post).




Solved a serious issue with a set of TWIN2X2048-6400 for me (though it does not help me with the board the ram was actually intended to run in P5L-VM 1394...no voltage adjustments...)
