process : amd athlon xp2400+

ram : Corsair Value 256 Mo DDR-SDRAM PC2700 CL2.5

gc : geForce 4 ti4200 128Moddr


I've got this config 1 years 1/2 ago and I never Had problem with it ,but since 2 weeks I can't play video game or play a video without a freeze and i must reboot my pc,otherwise all is ok.

With a good advices i tested my memery on another pc and it was the same probleme.

I wrote to my distributor and he say me : you must see with corsair for warantly because that was more than one year.

If someone can say me what i must do it was great.

Please try setting these settings manually and test the modules one up, if you have more than one module.

Load Setp defaults

System performance: User Define

CPU Freq: 133 MHz

Memory Frequency: 125%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 166MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 7T

Then please use http://www.memtest.org to test the modules!

If you are not getting errors with http://www.memtest.org but the system is crashing only when playing a game I would check for some driver issue. You might try a fresh install of windows on another HDD if you have one just too test and see if you get any errors you can track at http://www.microsoft.com/technet. Or can you test the modules on another system?

I've already test my ram on another pc.

The pc works correctly with its ram but when I changed memory it has the same problem.

I played a game and the pc freeze.

I don't think that comes from Windows because I formatted my hd ,change hd also and that don't change anything
