settings for VS512MB400 on ASUS A7N8X-X


Recommended Posts

I will check default settings. Whatever they were is what I stared with and started haveing problems getting through windows XP install.

It would fail to copy files to hard drive to start the install.

I tried the install numerous times and it would fail on differant files.

I found these settings from another post. Should I use these?


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

They look to be about right.

But like I said, the Asus boards are great. The SPD should be right without having to mess with anything.

If you think your RAM is at fault you can run Memtest .

Besides making sure your HDD is ok, check the XP disk. It's amazing what a few scratches can do. (I've been there, trust me).


Out of curiousity, what is the speed of the optical drive that you are using for the install?

I had a 56x CDROM drive that gave me problems on occasion when trying to install software.

When I used my DVDROM (much slower), I had no problems installing software.

I'm now using a DVDROM and a Plextor DVD burner. The 56x CDROM is now collecting dust.

I have started the memtest on the computer and have these readings


Pass 34%

Test 50%

Test #4

Errors 34145 :eek:


Does this mean bad memory? :(:


After the errors I'm starting the test over with 1 of the 2 512MB modules.

I will post results after 3 passes on each module.
