Vs1gbkit400 Rma Req


Recommended Posts

VS1GBKIT400 (2 ea VS512MB400) installed in A7N8X2.0 M/B running 1008 BIOS. Has been operating without issue in dual channel mode since purchase some 90 days running at optimal timing/auto voltage 200MHz FSB with an Athlon XP 3200+ CPU. Recently began experiencing memory related issues with some applications, resulting in BSOD (blue screen). Upon disabling quick POST (power on self test), found that M/B POST reports MEM TEST FAIL and halts. Did not attempt to isolate which module, as they are sold as a set for dual channel motherboard. M/B works fine now with a spare set of Samsung DDR modules installed. May I have an RMA please? TIA, Paul.

Please make sure that you change the jumper setting on your MB from the default 1-2 to 2-3 specifically for a 400MHz FSB and that you have the latest BIOS for your MB installed as well; load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

VS512MB400 or VS1GBKIT400

CPU Freq: 200 MHz (400 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz (400 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): 8T

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

Thanks for that, but are you suggesting to me that my system has been operating without issue with the Corsair DIMMs installed for the past three months by pure accident? Why after this period would I need to go back and retweak the BIOS settings on an otherwise functional system? Furthermore, why does the system fuction flawlessly after I merely replace the DIMM set with a spare set I had, leaving the BIOS settings in their rather generic state? This does not suggest to you that something might be wrong with one or both of the Corsair DIMMs? I suppose it would be nice to install the Corsair units in another machine (to see if the fault follows), should I wish to spend any more time on this unfortunate matter. In any case, thank you for your response to my post.
