Default Strange Serial Numbers and not working ram

Dear Sir or Madam,

a few weeks ago I ordered a 2 GB Kit (2x1 gb - xms2-6400; 4 4 4 12).

Serial numbers were:
005971 - 07120685-0
005929 - 07120685-0

Computer didn't even boot up with both sticks, I removed one, Windows booted up, but crashed after a few minutes.

I sent the kit back to my vendor, received another kit.

Serial numbers were:
239662 - 07210424-0
239662 - 07210424-0

And guess what: Windows boots, even with both sticks, but crashes after a few minutes. Also with one.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300
Mobo: ASUS P5N-E
Graphic Card: tested 3 different
Bios: Standard settings - no oc at all, version from very end of 2006

Two questions:
Why are the serial numbers at kit 1 different, and the same at kit 2?

So, where is the problem? Did I receive 4 bad Corsair Sticks? Or did my vendor send me defect memory? Or is the memory not compatibel with my mobo?

best regards

Can you tell me our modules part# (How To Read the Memory Label) and the make and model of MB you have along with 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?

Thank you for the reply. I m at work, so I cant give you all the details.

The numbers on the modules are on both pieces:
239662 - 07210424-0
239662 - 07210424-0

The link "How To Read the Memory Label" doesnt help me much, as the modules look a lil bit different than those shown. If that doesnt help, I ll upload a foto of both sticks.

The MB is ASUS P5N-E SLI, I updated Bios to latest version yesterday, still same errors.

I havent touched any options in Bios except "set back to factory defaults" or whatever that option is called and I de-activated that usb legacy thing I read here.

I burnt that MemTest ISO and run it, and it showed me errors en masse.

As I really have to work with my PC, yesterday I bought some oem-cheapo-ram from my local vendor, and my PC runs perfectly with it.

To be honest, I ordered the much more expensive corsair ram primarly, cos I wanted to just install the memory and use my pc, not to update bios, and change dozens of options in bios, which I didnt want to touch.

Though, I d appreciate your help to get my machine run even with corsair ram, otherwise I try to get my money back from my vendor.

I am sorry but those number are not our part # and with out knowing what you have I don't have any way to tell what they should be.
The part# should be or start with Twin2x or VS.
