Corrupt Memory? TWINX1024-3200XLPT


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been running into trouble with games and other random problems lately like not being able to run 3dmark03 because it says textures are corrupt. I decided to run Memtest(v3.2) and really not to my surprise my memory failed...a lot. Below is some info from the tests run:


Chipset: Nvidia Nforce2 SPP

Ram: 200mhz(DDR 400), Cas: 2.5-2-2-5, Dual Channel(128 bits)

Test: Standard

Number of Tests Ran: 9

Number of Fails: 7066

Number of Passes: 1


I'm pretty sure thats NOT good....i purchased this memory from ZipZoomFly so it is covered by warranty(thankfully) and im wondering if you have any suggestions or is my memory just gone and i have to get an RMA?


Thank You!

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

Make: MSI

Model: K7N2 Delta-ILSR (I have the latest bios update)

CPU: Athlon XP 3000+ 400FSB (clocks at 2.1ghz)

Some BIOS Settings

DRAM Clock: Auto

CPU Interface: Normal

Memory Timings: Manual

T-(RAS)= 5

T-(RCD)= 3

T-(RP)= 2

CAS= 2


I believe that is all the info you requested. Please get back to me.

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 TwinX512-3200XL

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: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 5T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7/2.75 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! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!

Ok, i made the above adjustments and tried both sticks separetly, one came up with no errors after the three tests but the other had a constant stream of errors after 4 tests. I now have just the one working stick in the computer and have the bad stick in the original packaging. What should i do now?
