Should i RMA my IV?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Right, i was plagued by blue screens and crashes, etc well, i noticed my ram was in the red ram slots, so i took the DIMMS out and put them into the black slots and it works perfectly, no browser crashes no corruption errors, no rounding errors, should i RMA my board?.

Below are the threads i made previously.

I had a similair problem once, I RMA'ed my board and the fault was due to one of the track's was damaged which could of been the cause of my screwdriver scratched along the tracks to the memory to the CPU

I read that link you posted 3 weeks ago. Did you get that figured out? Seems to possibly be hard drive issues?

What is the bsod error you are getting ? If it something to do with networking that is a common error and you need to update your network driver. I Used the one from Intel's site.

it wasn't hard drive related unfortunately :/ it seems it was due to the ram being in the red slots, one of my friends said i had to fill the black ones up first.

i you looks closely you will see like miniture line's going all over the motherboard, the memory lane's should go straight into the CPU.

Motherboard lane's can easily be damaged by anything like a screwdriver when your taking thing's apart and this what happend to mine, I took it apart, I must of damaged one of the lane's, put it all back together and my computer woulden't post unless my memory was in a specific DIMM slot which will then post.

I rma'ed my motherboard then and the faulty report I had from SCAN said that there was a damaged lane on the motherboard which prevented the motherboard from booting with RAM in DIMM slot 1 and 3, but 2 and 4 worked fine.
