Bad ram chip


Recommended Posts

Hey there,


I purchased a ram combo from tigerdirect.com, the Corsair XMS 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (two 2gig chips, number: CM2x2048-6400C5C). One of the chips works fine, but the other, whenever it is put it, causes the screen to black out randomly for a couple of seconds every now and then. I have tried using it alone, changing the ram slot to make sure it wasn't the board, and even changed from windows xp to windows 7, and it still reacts the same.


I was hoping I would be able to send back the one bad chip in return for a good one, so that I can keep my computer running in the meantime. Thank you.
