guidance reqd:Bad DDR RAM

Not open for further replies.


I had 12 256 mb DDR1 Ram which i gave to a vendor for repairing.

the vendor gave me back 9 of them in ok condition. He told he just cleaned them with solution, which made them ok. The solution is whitish in nature and a mixture of some corrosive solution like actone and three other chemicals. his charge is Rs.300/- per ram. The other 3 he can repair at charge of Rs.500/- as it parity chip is faulty.

Any idea what could be the solution, and should we try ourself on others faulty rams.

GURUs please guide. Are athe thinks so easy???????

oh that solution - might be acetone / alcohol / spirit and some other chem..it usually comes in Pink / White color.it is just a cleaner,nothing more than that.and if i'm not wrong it does not cost more than 50 bucks for a 20 ml bottle.
