Keddari Posted April 19, 2007 Share Posted April 19, 2007 Hope I'm not posting in the wrong area - but if I am, feel free to take a bat to my internet connection! Anyways. About a month ago, I got a VS1GB400C3 from an online retailer (who shall remain nameless, irregardless of them ignoring my emails). When I received it, I carefully swapped it in for my branded 1x256 PC3200 stick. Afterwards, I turned on the PC and the RAM test in BIOS passed. Moves on to loading WinXP - and immediately crashes. Over the next few days, I did some testing with RAM slots, timings, combinations, etc and it wouldn't boot at all with the Corsair stick in the MoBo. I finally remembered to grab MemTest when I had time home from work and ran it with my hopeful memory setup (1x1GB, 2x512). By the time I hit 11% into the test, I had over 90K errors (lol). So I took out everything but the one Corsair stick and re-ran the test, and got the same results. MemTest lead me to believe all the errors were between 256.00MB and 511.00MB (which sounds like one bank of RAM on the stick). Thanks for any and all help in advance! Oh, and the rest of the system: * Gigabyte K8NE (Rev1.X) * AMD Athlon XP 64 3200+ (Venice) * Antec TRUE430w PSU * BFG 7900GSOC * 2x512 generic, 1x256 branded - All sticks are PC3200 * SB Audigy Value Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
