Kingston Recalling 300 Memory Boards

Kingston Technology Corp. said Monday that it is recalling about 300 memory boards it built for high-end computer workstations earlier this year.

The Fountain Valley company, a leading maker of memory products for PCs, servers and printers, said a few customers complained about the products, which were used as memory upgrades in Silicon Graphics' Origin and Onyx2 machines. The memory boards that are being recalled were made from January to March and range in price from $850 to $40,000, company officials said.

The company has contacted its distributors and told them to remove the boards. Kingston also plans to replace faulty boards that already have been installed for free and said it will send company staff to help customers with repairs, if needed.
