Bad memory?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have had my twinx2048-3200 memory for over a year and have had nice performance with them. Recently I have been having PC issues. One of them is my hard drive but the other appeared to be memory related. I ran a MS memory test utility and got the following results.

 

Pass:1

Test: Stride6

Cache: 0ff

Address: 01944b78

Expected: 00000000

Actual: 00000400

I assume that this means it had problems with those areas of the ram. Is there something else I should do before requesting an RMA?

the simms are in slots 2 and 3 which I believe is 2,3,4,5. Bios settings are set by the SPD. I dont have them over clocked or any special settings just what they boot into. I will try memtest. Thanks.
