sylvan_elf Posted May 14, 2009 Share Posted May 14, 2009 I build this computer with a gigabyte MA770-UD3, with other parts listen in my specs. After about 3-4 weeks it started giving me IE7, Win Explorer and random crashes, blue screens of death, and various missing/corrupt files. I ran memtest, and it would say the memory was fine, but Windows mem tester said there was a hardware conflict. I checked the Gigabyte mobo and it didn't list this RAM as compatible. So I ordered a ASUS mobo (listed in my specs), and another pack of this Corsair Dominator RAM. Built the computer with them, leaving this pack of RAM out. Booted, reformatted and reinstalled Vista, running fine. I added the original sticks of RAM back in thinking it was the mobo that was causing it. About 4 weeks later it started all over again. Running memtest, and windows memory test, one test showed good, one test showed bad. I pulled the original set of RAM out and it is now running stable again. Leads me to think that the RAM is the problem. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
