Hellgate : London killed my RAM

23 Oct 2007 | Flash, Hellgate : London, Personal |  2 comments

Today is the day, for the first time in my life that a beta game client actually killed my RAM! In the past, I have experienced a situation before where I fried my graphic card by flashing the wrong bios. This time, however, is the first time where after I experience ultra cool graphics, the PC started to have problems.

For example, Enemy Territory : Quake Wars started to crash to desktop for no good reason, same goes to Guild Wars. Guild Wars was so nice and even suggested that my processor could be faulty.

After discussing with bro, I suspect that the RAM could have died. Bro commented that the heat from the processor and graphics card probably cooked the RAM. After taking out the RAMs piece by piece, and experimenting with individual RAM pieces, I came to the conclusion that the pair of 256MB mushkin RAMS that me bro bought for it is faulty.

Bloody Flagship Studios made a beta game client that killed my RAM, brilliant aye?

    Sounds like poor ventilation killed your RAM, not Hellgate: London.

    Well, probably though. Come to think of it, there are a couple of times that I experienced funny graphics in Guild Wars, just not that often.

    Perhaps the RAM was already dying, just that it totally went kaput after playing Hellgate : London beta.
