spacecookie Posted November 20, 2004 Share Posted November 20, 2004 ASUS K8V Deluxe AMD 64 1GB Corsair CMX512-3200C2PT (2 STICKS) all settings by spd 2 SATA Raids ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Started getting intermittant restarts about a month ago. First thought it was a bad sector on the hard drives but a program kept popping up that it would not continue due to possible bad memory. So I went looking for a memory tester, first one I tried was the windows memory tester that boots from a floppy. It would lock up. Found Memtest-86 v3.2 to try and on test #5 found 22 errors. Removed 1 stick and ran tests again with same results. Swapped out sticks for the other. All memory tests come out as passed. Took it 1 step further and changed the stick slots so that stick A was where stick B was and vise versa with both sticks in, 199 errors on test #5. Took it a step further took out the now known problem stick and set the CL to 2 instead of 2.5 with the known good stick ran all tests with a PASS no errors. Swapped sticks out again this time with the CL set to 3 still fails but with only 104 errors. Ran Windows without the suspect bad stick and it runs much faster. I believe the stick XMS3202v1.2 0328935 is a dodgy stick of ram. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
