This should be in Consumerwatch but yes I too have had 2 lots of faulty memory,the first dead on arrival the second causing the computer to crash all the time, in fact so much of my order was faulty and/or broken that I've decided not to deal with them again.

I bought some memory from E-Buyer a while back and my PC wouldn't boot. I sent it back and received a replacement. Still wouldn't boot. Sent that back too, but had problems this time as E-Buyer said they'd checked out the memory themselves and found nothing wrong. After some hassle, they did agree to a refund, less a 2.5% handling re-stock fee! It was my word against theirs.

That was the first time I'd used them and will never do so again, or recommend them. Their reurns policy is dreadful into the bargain.

do not jump to the conclusion that memory is at fault when often the single sided ones are mixed with the double sided ones .or on an early type motherboard that causes trouble .because it likes double sided ones/ later the single sided were used .
