Default Need RMA - Bad RAM

I am having problems with my PC. It seems that my PC freezes and it also sometimes crashes into a blue screen, with error message "memory dump".

I troubleshot this problem and this is the result: I ran Prime 95 and I got an error within 10 seconds of hardware failure. I moved the memory around, I had it in slot 1, then 2, then 1 & 3, 2 & 4, and I got the same results.

I decided to put on stick of RAM in slot number 1 and run Prime 95 to find that I got the same error within 10 seconds. My screen started to freeze and lock up. I took that RAM out and I put my other stick of 512, ran Prime for over 8 hours without any issues or errors.

My problem is: I need to RMA this memory stick. I have two 512's running in dual channel. Do I need to send you both sticks or only one, since certain versions don't agree with other versions.

Here are my specs: abit AN7 Motherboard
XP 3000 Barton CPU
2X - 512 CORSAIR CMX512
37gig WD Raptor
200gig Seagate
98 Pro Videocard

Default Moving to Compatibility Questions!

Can you tell me the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?
