Bad stick after doing tests


Recommended Posts

This is on a computer that has been running since April 2006.




Mobo: AN832-SLI Deluxe

2 1 GB Matched sticks of CMX1024 3200C2PRO


Mobo bios set to default, memory voltage set to 2.7 at cas and 3-3-3-8 with Legacy USB disabled.


Using Memtest 3.1


With both sticks in I get errors right from the very start with errors continuing as long as the test is running.


I left the stick in slot one and pulled the other, ran the test with no errors.

I took out the "test passing" stick.


I inserted the other stick in the first slot and tried to boot from cd and got a message that my bios couldn't be found and needed to be reinstalled.

I reseated the same stick and ended up with the same error.


I took out the "bad stick" and put in the "passing stick" and ran Memtest with no errors.


I think I have a bad stick from a matched pair. As far as I know you guys do not make this memory any more and since it is only 1 of the matched pair that is not working how do you handle the replacement. I really need to use my computer and it will run with 1 gig but if you send a different type of ram then I am sure i will have problems if they are not a match pair.
