Win 7 ultimate x64 Corrupted downloads


I am having trouble downloading from rapidshare premium with flashget on my win7 pc. This is a recent problem, first noticed about 4 weeks ago. I have been using win7 64 since rtm sign-off and never experienced this problem. All of a sudden downloads are corrupted and I get crc errors on almost every file. Downloading the same files on winxp using same setup (flashget and rs premium) finishes without any errors.

I have dpc3000 and a wrt54g-tm with tomato raf mod. I have tested win7 pc on direct setup without router. No luck. Downloads finish perfectly fine on XP, with or without router.

What could it be, a software bug or a sign of a hardware slowly dying (nic, hdd, mobo)?

Please help,

  1. Anyone?
  2. Have you tried uninstalling and then re-installing flashget?
  3. I am having exactly the same issue.
    checked cable, switch, firewall, adsl modem (I even bypass most of them for tests) but the problem remains.
    I have replaced the on board nVidia NIC with a PCIe with Realtek chipset, but that didn't work either!
    I have disabled all fancy windows 7 network performance tunings, but the issue still not resolved.

    Any ideas?
  4. OK guys I solved mine...
    I removed a pair of Corsair CMX1024-3200C2PT and downloads are stable again :D
    I have also tested the modules and found some errors.
    Assman you have to check your RAM too (I guess)
    I am going for RMA and replacement :bounce:

    This is exactly why I paid a little more for a system that uses ECC RAM. It still bugs me that in most desktop computer systems virtually every pathway and storage device uses error checking except RAM.
