Bad stick of RAM


Recommended Posts

I started having random reboots of my system 5 months after building it. Part of my troubleshooting included running MemTest86 on the memory. I have 2 sticks or RAM, and I tested all combinations multiple times of each stick in the first 2 slots. I have come to the conclusion that 1 of my sticks from my Twin pack of Corsair memory is bad. Since then I have removed the bad stick, and I've been running my machine off of 1 stick for a couple of weeks with no further problems.

 

What's the next step? I believe Newegg will replace the memory for me; however, the problem is down time. If I could somehow just replace the bad stick (not both since they came in a single package), then I could continue running my system with no down time.

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.0 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, 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.
