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.

same for retail.
