Guessing this is bad?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so this is a continuation of this thread (sorry for double posting, just figured I'd get an answer here...) and I think I may have found the culprit of my incredible Vista lag and BSODs.

Did memtest on the memory I have, more specifically the stick I thought was bad, and memtest gave me what's attached.

I have no idea what this means, but does it basically mean I should probably RMA this stuff and hope my troubles with Vista go away? I have yet to try the other stick, but that one was causing a bit of lag too so I'm guessing it may be bad as well.

I have 2 sticks of 512 DDR400 that I could throw in there to test it, would that be a good idea?

Thanks all

Looks like you need some new memory
test the other sticks. edit: didnt read that it was ddr lol
look for your packaging and UPC and get ready to RMA
Also have you tried running the ram at stock timings and recommended volts?

Yep, the memory is faulty. You can RMA the set. And DDR won't work in a DDR2 board.

Since the errors are not continuous on a single pass but spread out on many passes my first thought is, the RAM at rated volts and timings for stock clocks? May only need a small bump in volts to get the errors to go away or modules are getting a bit to hot.

Thanks guys, I figured that was it

Nope, everything is running at stock speeds timings and voltage. I only upped it to run at 1066 after it had defaulted at 800 and thought that may be the culprit.

Ugh, guess I gotta wait a bit more time!
