Hi, I got some problem on my memory. My computer won't boot when I install two stick ram. After I remove the one stick, it can boot to post. So, I think my memory was dead or my mobo memory slot was dead

What I can do?

1. Buy new memory with good brand
2. Buy a new motherboard
3. Not doing both

Already checked, my memory module was dead. So, only one stick was installed :D  :p 

Slot was still working fine

I want to deciding buy memory, which the memory has the good quality?
1. Corsair XMS2 2GB
2. Mushkin Silverline 2GB (more expensive than XMS2)

Any of the 2. I would check their configurators, to make sure the RAMs are guaranteed as compatible with the motherboard's model.
Corsair - use their Learn & Explore tab.

Is it okay when I install Corsair/Mushkin memory mixed with generic brand memory (which it has Hynix chip)

No. It's not good to mix memory modules/kits.

Why? I had mixing the memory module with different brand (although it's generic brand, which it has same chip)
