Rose Kolodny Posted November 19, 2004 Share Posted November 19, 2004 I have 2 512 sticks of xms3200cpt memory, one of which seems to be broken. They were in a Gigabyte 8knxp, with a 2.6 Ghz P4. The system acted wonky and from time to time would just break down. Made me very sad. This most recent time, I wiped the (brand spankin' new) hard drive and went to install XP again. Could not copy this file or that file or generally complete the installation. I tried a different CD, different CD drive, different hard drive, and eventually, a new motherboard, because my gigabyte didn't seem comfortable with either module by itself. Silly me. The new motherboard is an ASUS p4c800-e deluxe. Same processor. Same problem. I was able to install XP with just one module in place. Eventually I found a copy of memtest, and one stick gives me no errors, while the other one, in the same slot, gives me over 100,000. I am NOT overclocking. Please help.
