Windows 7: Is repair install my best option?

15 Jul 2013   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

OK, I got Windows 7 up and running again!. I tell you though, I had a scare when the Kaspersky trial I am using crashed just like it was back when my system was first acting up. But it was something about needing to update blah blah. So I think all is good.

I still need to determine if the problem was a faulty RAM module or RAM slot. I have been too busy getting my system up and running to worry about that at the moment. It's running fine with the one 8GB module in slot 1.

Sucks that I will have to return both modules to get the replacements.

Thank you for your help. I will post with any other updates.

If the RAM is less than a year old call their Tech Support to have them supervise the testing so it will go on a fast track for RMA if not be repaired for an issue known to them. Otherwise you can stick with 8gb if its working since it obviously doesn't need matching pair.
