Windows Crashing on regular basis


Recommended Posts

I have been having problems with one computer in my lab that started crashing, so I reformatted and reinstalled. No luck, it still was crashing so I downloaded Windows Memory test and ran it from a floppy. It found numerous errors with the Value Select dual channel ram I have installed.

I called the 888-222-4346 number and it wanted me to leave a message?

It also referred me to here. So here I am.

What do I have to do to get replacement memory or what test do I need to run to make sure it is defective?

It is very unlikely that both modules would fail at the same time. I would suggest testing the modules individually in the same memory slot. If one of the modules fails and the other works, then we will need to replace both of them for you. However, if you get errors with both of them, that would usually suggest some other problem. If the modules need to be replaced, then please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them.
