i have 1 gb stick ddr2 kingmax
it was inte he packet and i took it out but when i was taking i out i pressed in the middle of it and the memory bent a little . And now when i install it it is not working windows 7 crashes on start up every time memery is in the slot.
this memory has been working for 2 year on Asus P5K and when p5k broke down i put it back in it's packet(box). And now it is not working.
If the module is bent and not cracked, then try to straighten it. Before you try that, is that module identical to the other modules in your system?
i have one more 1 gb module which is same and that one works on my motherboard.
the problem is then i installed all the memeory 2x2gb and 2x 1gb. windows 7 crashed on startup after few seconds.
and i Re installed windows 7 and it worked i installed some programs and then i shut down the pc and next morning i got same problem. it crashed on start up. then i testen all module one by one and found out that this one was causing trouble.
