Havagan Posted September 22, 2008 Share Posted September 22, 2008 I purchased a 4GB kit (QUAD2X4096-8500C5DF) of RAM which has been running fine for nearly a year with the BIOS settings manually set to 5-5-5-15, 2.20V, 1066MHz per memory specs. A few weeks ago my system would not POST but would go into an infinite power on, power down, power on cycle (seemingly typical of Gigabyte MBs with bad RAM). Two of the four 1GB DIMMs appear to be fine (and have been stable since I pulled the other two DIMMs out) while the other two appear dead. The two bad DIMMs have been tested in three separate systems and all three failed to POST: Gigabyte P35-DS4 Gigabyte X48-DS5 Dell XPS 410 None of the three systems will post with one or both of the bad DIMMs installed. Single bad DIMM (attempted in slots 1, 2, 3, 4): Fail Both bad DIMMs: Fail Single good DIMM, single bad DIMM: Fail Both good DIMMs, single bad DIMM: Fail Single good DIMM (attempted in slots 1, 2, 3, 4): Pass Both good DIMMs: Pass Can I RMA the pair of bad DIMMs or all four DIMMs since they were purchased as a 4 DIMM kit?
