RAM issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
HI guys,

So I noticed some strange behavior from my desktop (Win7 64bits).
For example :
- firefox crashes often
- Steam games : sometimes I have to check the validity of the game and download files (but the day before I could play it without any problem)
- sometimes just blue screen (i dont have time to read, but seems to be a memory pb) and the PC restarts

At first, I was thinking it was a problem with my SSD (crucial m4 128Gb), so I downloaded the latest firmware. But still got some problem.
So I decided to test the memory (2x4GB corsair vengeance). I used Memtest86+ (on USB stick).
And then...



So many errors ....
I also used the windows memory diagnose software, and same things, it said there are errors.

So, what should I do ? Should I do more tests? Should I contact Corsair ? Is there a fix ?

That is gone for all money. All the symptoms of bad RAM (BSODs, random crashing, etc).
Test individual stick now to see which one is the culprit. Then if you can, RMA the whole kit (if it is a kit), or if you can't, time for new RAM.

ah... I'm a little bit disapointed because I bought these sticks 5 months ago... And I have all of these problems since 4 months at least...
I hope I can get new ones.
