Bad stick of ram


Recommended Posts

Well, I dunno. I bought 2 sticks of uhhh VS512MB667D2 Ram, I really don't know the product name, that's what is on the stick. I bought these 2 sticks, and I dunno, everything seemed normal, and I had an old hard drive and thought that was what making all the errors (My computer would restart randomly, firefox.exe wouldn't load, etc). I consulted some people on other sites and they said it could be my ram. I took out one stick of ram, all my problems were fixed. I thought maybe it was the communication between the 2 sticks. I was wrong, all the errors reoccured when I put in the "bad" stick of Ram. I read that you guys have a life time warrently and I'd like to replace my one stick.

 

(Also not sure if this is in the right place, move it if you will)

Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.0 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s 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 some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
