    Memory Help - Corsair TwinX DDR2 PC2

    Hi Guys

    I have randomly been getting BSOD while I have been gaming. I ran MemTest about 30 mins ago and it has already found 47 errors:



    Item: 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair TwinX DDR2 PC2
    Purchase date: 02/07/08

    What's the best way to get these sorted, do I go through Scan or Corsair?

    Thanks

    p.s I am not overclocking anything on my hardware, everything is default.

    If you live locally just take it up to Scan for a clean swap, otherwise:

    http://web6.scan.co.uk/aspnet/Suppor...px?QueryType=R

    or

    http://www.corsair.com/helpdesk/default.aspx

    I'd vote for Scan as you can stay in contact with their guys through the support forum and they've never been anything but great with me.

    Re: Memory Help - Corsair TwinX DDR2 PC2

    Is it getting the correct voltage ?
    if you can test in another PC
    i had two before christmas with errors on an asus p5k ws
    put them in an amd pc and no errors

    Purchase date: 02/07/09 do you mean 2008 ?
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    I think 2.1v is a little high for non-OC'd DDR2. Try it at 1.8v - not sure if that will work but it's worth a try. Also, what is the URL for Memtest? Thanks

    - The link for Memtest http://hcidesign.com/
    - Tried 1.8V, made no difference
    - I have contacted Scan yesterday and I am still waiting for a reply

    Thanks for the link. Just wanted to add it to my software toolbox
    Sorry my advice didn't help - have you tried this RAM on another motherboard or tried other RAM on your motherboard? I thought it would be unlikely for both modules to be defective, but since they are paired for dual-channel, they are most likely from the same batch.
