It happened to me. Last week two ASAs with 4 GB or RAM each (4x1GB) died
after a power off/power on. All the 1Gb modules were tested individually and
were dead.

The reference of the module for those interested:

Micron, PC3200U-30331-B1, 1GB, DDR, 400, CL3, ECC

I'm sure most people have seen this, but for those who haven't:


tl;dr - faulty RAM in a bunch of Cisco (and it is implied, other
vendors) kit from ca. 2005-2010 suffering sudden death on power cycle,
across many product ranges.

They downplay it somewhat in the FAQ - let's hope it really is only a minor
