Corsair memory bad?


Recommended Posts

It's been over a year since I got my corsair cmx1024-3200 (pair) from newegg. Today, I woke up and opened my monitor and saw a blue screen. So I rebooted but then it came back, and again, and again. I tried booting under ubuntu, didn't work as well. So I ran memtest 86+. I had 100% failure, essentially no passes whatsoever.


I thought it was a glitch so I ran memtest 86 (the older one) and I still had 100% failure and half the screen was full of red "bad addresses". I took one of the memory chips out and ran it and it went smoothly. No more BSoD, no problems. I put the chip back in and the problems came back.


I hear from others that you should send both twins back to corsair to get it replaced, but I need to use my computer since it's used for most of my work. Is it possible to simply get a replacement of the single chip?


Let me know
