Is Crucial Ballistix RAM no good for OEM systems?
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have been struggling with instability and other craziness with an hp-compaq dx-2250M business desktop. I have just about an entirely new PC being sent to me in parts by hp. On July 21, 2008, I ordered Crucial RAM 2 X 1GB Ballistix RAM per the memory selector on the Crucial web site. I just found out the Crucial now knows they have a problem in that the RAM they specified back in July won't work reliably with machines such as dx-2250 where the BIOS settings cannot be tweaked to match high performance memory. They also admit that MEMTEST can run umteen passes and not shown this problem.
Has anyone else experienced the same problem?
