Bad memory stick.


Recommended Posts

Hey Ramguy.


I recently built up a new machine last week and I'm having an issue with one of the memory sticks. It would seem one of the pair is faulty but the other is fine.


Memory: TWIN2X2048-6400C

My BIOS is configured to run at timings of 4-4-4-12 at 2.1V running at 800. I've had a few sporadic issues, so I pulled out some testing tools to try and diagnose.


For testing purposes I used Memtest86+ 1.70 and Orthos. After recieving various math failures in Orthos I tested in Memtest and the problem always appears on Test #7. After these failures I did the usual and tested individual chips and alternate slots etc. I individually tested both sticks in bank one, and a second time in bank 3 to be sure. One stick works fine in both banks and no errors are detected by either Orthos or Memtest86, however after removing the first stick and replacing with the second stick I get a failed test number 7 in memtest86+ everytime regardless of the bank I use, so it definately appears the issue is with one module.


RMA time, or you have any alternate suggestions? (although it seems pretty apparant that the one module is faulty)


Thanks in advance,
