bad stick of ram

Recommended Posts

i have two sticks of corsair xms LL 512MB PC3200 ram. one stick is 2226, the other is 2326. the when i boot with both sticks, windows will load and work ok for a while, then it just spontaneously restarts. when i boot with just the 2226, windows works with no problems. when i boot with the 2326, windows will boot, and within 5 seconds the computer will restart.


i am running an amd 2800 2.09 GHz and a fsb of 333MHz on an ASUS A7n8x deluxe motherboard with the latest drivers installed.



Edit: the good stick is xms3205v1.1, the other is v1.2

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;


CPU Freq: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

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!
