Bad TWIN2X2048-6400C4 memory


Recommended Posts

Thinking I got some bad memory here. Keep getting BSOD's mem test is coming out bad all the time say pairs are bad. Memtest comes up bad right off the bat.

Bought this memory 12/07 would it be bad so soon? Bought 4 gigs total.

 

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4 - Retail

 

I set my memory accorrding to what the ram guy had listed here in another thread.

Any help? Can I still RMA??

Ok ive tested each stick one at a time. Out of 3 sticks of ram I can clear over 200% in no time. On one stick it takes forever.............like 20 mins to reach 100%. Im not showing failure on them though. But when they are all in the slots I get memory test errors right off the bat. Even before it seems to start. Then I tells me something about bad pairs or something. I keep getting Bsod's

Can anyone tell me what settings I should have in my Cmos to troubleshoot this.

 

thanks for any help.

In this case if each stick passes on it own then this would indicate this is a memory controller issue. When you populate all four Dimm slots you over stress the memory controller. Try lowering the Memory Frequency to 667Mhz and see if this clears up the issue. =)
