Help with Memtest+

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I been having a lot of BUGCHECK error, and after hours of looking for a fix, I found that it might be problematic RAM. So my question is, Should i test my RAM with MEMTEST with all 4 stick of RAM or with single stick one by one?

I have 4 x 8GB Crucial Sport DD3

Thanks for the help.

Its been forever since I used Memtest, but I'm thinking you can start with all 4 and only need to go one at a time if you get an error.

Thanks, I'll give Memtest a go. It takes a long time to complete test, so I'll reply back tomorrow with more info.

Yeah i would go All 4, then if you get errors, go down to one at a time and find the bad Stick, if all sticks pass, put one of the good sticks in each DIMM slot till you find the bad one.

Update:

After 12 hours of testing, one of my stick is indeed bad. I ran all 4 stick together and got a lot of errors. Ran each stick individually on slot DIMM 1, and the first stick I choose is the bad one biggrin.gif. But just to be sure, I ran the other 3 as well.

I think I can still utilize 24GB of RAM instead of 32GB, since I doubt that I even used more than 8GB in gaming.

Next question regarding RMA Crucial RAM since it has a lifetime warranty. Has anyone ever RMA something from Crucial without proof of receipt? I lost my Microcenter Receipts couple of weeks ago when I during house cleaning.

I guess they should be able to give you RMA with the serial numbers on the sticks. Not sure though.
