Gordy Posted December 3, 2004 Share Posted December 3, 2004 Hi, I think this is the correct forum for this but let me know if it is not :) I've recieved my shuttle sn95g5 and its causing loads of problems. The specs are as follows AMD 64 3200+ winchester 2x segate sata drives 2x 512mb Corsair CMX512-3200C2 (Spec sheet http://www.corsairmicro.com/main/products/specs/cmx512-3200c2.pdf ) Now when I first installed everything it turned on but wouldnt show anything on the screen , no bios or everything. So I stripped everything down and removed everything bar one stick of ram/cpu/gfx and it would boot up fine. So I assumed it was because one of the sticks of ram was faulty , so I swapped the sticks round and found that I could still boot up fine. I have tested both sticks of corsair with memtest and they dont show any errors when in dimm1 but if I install 2 or put a single stick in dimm2 the machine won't boot at all. I therefore tried a different stick of ram in dimm 2 and it booted up fine, however when I memtested it there were 16000plus errors after one pass. This stick is a kingston 333mhz stick of value ram. When its in the machine on its own in dimm1 it gives the same errors but seems to work fine in my other machine, its never crashed at all. I've tried playing with the memory settings, I've up'd the voltages to 2.7 , 2.8 and 2.9 with the same results, I've also used the memory timings suggested by corsair here http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8048 And other settings that others on these forums have working but still the result is the same. Is there anyway I can prove that the dimm is faulty as I dont really want to be without my rig for however long they take to test it and send out a replacement? To me it looks as though the dimm2 slot is faulty and I need to return the shuttle but any help would be appreciated? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
