twinx1024-3200C2pt causes numerous errors during gaming

Recommended Posts

I just installed twinx1024-3200C2PT, upgraded from a single stick of kingston 256. [i never had a problem with the kingston RAM]. All is well untill I start playing half-life then I get random crashes where one error msg said "could not read memory #####" and the blue screen of death that said "all physical memory will be dumped"...?..I think.

I really am an amature when it comes to the real tech pc stuff so reading the forums kind of confuses me as to the best coarse of action.

I downloaded a memtest [not the one you suggest as I got too confused as how to install/run it] The one I downloaded said it would check all phases of the memory and to run it atleast 20 min, overnight preferably to really stress the memory. I ran it for 30 min with no errors but will try to run the suggested test if you can talk me thru the install in laymans terms.

I will now attempt to give you my pc config

Pent 4 @ 2.4Mhz 800 fsb

abit Is7-e motherboard

ATI 9000 pro 64MB

Win 2000 pro w/service pack 4

After I installed the new RAM my bios defaulted to hyper threading to which I had to disable since win 2000 does not support it. [strange I thought]

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated, like I said I really dont know what I'm doing so If this problem continues I will return the memory to newegg and try another brand.

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

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200C2

Softmenu Setup

CPU Freq: 200

DRAM Clock: 400 MHz

CPU/DRAM ratio: 1:1

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.75 Volts

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


Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T (2.5T AMD Platform)

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

USB Legacy Support: Disabled

All other settings should be set to default settings!

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!
