    Default ram issues

    ok i have 2 1 gb moduals of ram. i have been haveingproblems booting my system lately and i have found it is because of my ram. so yesterday i took the moduals out an put each one in all 4 dimm slots by themselves and 1 stick worked wwhile the other did not. now today i put the "non working" stick in and low and behold it booted for me. what should i do i know for sure one isnt woking properly but is there anything i can do about it?

    well...im pretty sure the ram just bit it... the funny part is i wasnt overvolting or anything and hardly overclocking:$

    run memtest on the rams(google) if one of them is bad then warranty will mostly cover it

    well try and get it working, make sure everything is stock including the recommended voltage, then run memtest. From what you've said it should fail within 10 minutes.

    If this happens you have all the evidence you need to RMA with Crucial.
