Possible bad CMX512-2700C2 module?

Recommended Posts

This weekend I started getting some random hard resets on my desktop system and occasional hangs. This system has been very stable since I built it in February this year. I brought home a bootable CD with Memtest-86 v3.2 and ran tests on the system last night. The test failed 10 times at the memory offset 244.7 MB into the module. I don't have another system that takes this type of memory and I only have one module in my system. I have a Gigabyte GA-7VT600 1394 motherboard with an AMD 2400 processor. I contacted the place where I purchased the memory but they said that I needed to call Corsair directly since it was passed their 30 day return policy.


What do I do next?

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


Advanced Chipset Features (Ctrl + F1)

DRAM Clock: 333 MHz

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

SDRAM Burst Length: 4

SDRAM Bank Interleave: 4/Auto/Enabled

SDRAM Command Rate: 1T

Frequency Voltage Control

CPU Freq: 133

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts (+.2)

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI 9200 or 9600 then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

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!
