I built this computer a while back and suddenly one stick of ram stopped working. Luckily kingston replaced my ram for me, and I had both sticks of ram working for me, but again one of them stopped working. Could this be a problem with the motherboard, or might I be using the wrong type of ram?
You said you built it awhile back, how long was that ? I mean did it run for 2 years no problems type thing ? If it did I would not worry about compatability. I think in that case it would just be the memory giving it's notice that it's time is up. See is you can find your mobo here and from what little I know of your board it was hard for me to choose but maybe you can. It's the listing of the supported CPU's and memory for EVGA boards.
I don't see my mobo on there, probably because they dont make any that are for AMD anymore. Both sticks of RAM have never last for more than a month at most.
Ok, yeah that's to high of a failure rate. What is the entire system here we are talking about ? can you post up some detailed specs ? If it's an older setup and you cannot upgrade at the moment you may be able to change out the board fairly cheap but I have no idea what you have for cpu etc etc etc. In order to suggest a path to take I /we need more info.
on the machine ? One other thing is you really should find out if that memory is on the supported list for that board. Im sure it's somewhere on the website. I haven't had any time to look around over there since last night. Perhaps tonihgt if you haven't found anything more out.
It's one of the 2 items causing the problem I assume. Perhaps someone else will jump in here as Im off to work again.
