Bad memory test.

ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO/U3S6 is my board and G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit memory, after a series of bsod I ran the memory test on windows 7 and there were errors. So I removed one chip and the memory tested fine, swapped memory sticks in the same slot and memory tests fine. install both sticks again and get bsod. so then I pulled the memory out of the first slot and only use the second slot and each stick tests fine in the second slot. computer only crashes when both sticks are installed!?!

I am currently using the two blue slots;

aslo now every time my computer starts it runs the check disk program, how can I turn that off?

  1. Hi.

    Install the one stick in the A1 slot and the other one in the A2 slot.

    And for the check disk, look for and option in ur BIOS that says "fast boot" enable and reboot.
  2. Thanks for the fast reply. I now have the memory in a1 and a2 - the extended memory test results "bad hardware found contact computer manufacture..." but computer not crashing (yet)

    fast boot is enabled and still running checkdisk :( this all started yesterday after a month of error free computing.
  3. Why u wait that time?

    Could be the RAM or the mobo. Can u test the rig with another different RAM? a borrow RAM of a friend?
  4. No I will have to buy some new memory to test. :(

    Ok, it will only run with one chip installed and doesn't matter which chip or which slot I use.

    On a side note I am having trouble with Security Essentials updating and staying updated. Even though I updated today, after a restart it will show "last update 5 days ago"
