XMS2400 had it's day

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am running a 1.4GHz Athlon Tbird in an Abit KG7-RAID. CPU and memory speeds running at normal frequencies. I had 2 sticks of 256MB XMS2400 running in this since it's build date once upon a time. About a year ago one of my sticks died, and was replaced with a new module (which has been running flawlessly ever since). It seems that about a week or so ago, the other stick finally gave out. After quickly ruling out the newer stick, I ran both the basic and thorough tests in Windows Memory Diagnostic (it's what I had on hand). Let both test sets loop several times, and was unable to successfully complete a single pass (test failure rate averaged to about 50% - 60%). With this stick in the system, I get random system reboots, crashes, and general instability. With the questionable part out of the system, I am still running as solid as I ever had. Part number and branding on module is as follows: Corsair XMS2400. CM4SD256-2400C2. 012922. Any assistance you can provide in resolving this would be much appreciated.


Thank you.

Please make sure you have the latest BIOS installed for your MB and load optimized defaults settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

CPU Freq: 133 MHz (266 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 133 MHz (266 FSB)

Memory Timing: Optimal/Auto/SPD/Enabled

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
