meistertek Posted December 13, 2004 Share Posted December 13, 2004 I may have a bad memory module. I have only one Corsair VS512MB266 0322008 pc2100 module in my system. My computer has been running fine for quite some time. I then had problems with files being corrupted when I downloaded them. Next, games would drop out to windows. I tried to reinstall Windows XP but it would blue screen out. Next, I set my bios setting Boot, Intel Rapid Bios Boot [Disabled] to check the memory at boot. The system would report only "356mb system ram" and the error "RAM R/W test failed" was displayed. Next, I ran memtest86 version 3.0 for 53 minutes -- it reported 5741 errors during this time. I moved the memory module to another slot and tested it again with the same results. System configuration: Intel D865 PERL motherboard Intel P4 2.40 GHz System bus 400 MHz PNY GeForce 6800GT 256 MB Bios configuration: Advanced, chipset configuration Extended configuration [default] (auto sets all memory settings below) SDRAM freq [auto] (266) CPC override [auto] SDRAM timing [auto] SDRAM RAS active pre  SDRAM CAS# latency [2.5] SDRAM RAS# to CAS# delay  SDRAM RAS# precharge  Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
