VS2GBKIT533D2 - 1 of 2 Defective?

Dustin CLE

Recommended Posts

Problem: Of four DIMM slots (2 channels, 2 DIMM slots each - primary/secondary) only one of the DIMM from my Corsair kit work in the primary DIMM slots of either channel on my motherboard.


If I try putting the good DIMM in any of the secondary DIMM slots, I get post code errors, and if I put the "defective" DIMM in any DIMM slot, I get post code errors as well (code C5). Putting the good DIMM in a primary slot and the "defective" DIMM in the corresponding secondary slot, I get a post code error of "01".


The only time the computer boots up correctly is with the good DIMM installed in either of the primary DIMM slots. Can I just run the system like this in single channel mode while Corsair replaces my "defective" DIMM? Thanks for your time! :)


Code 01: Expand the Xgroup codes locating in physical address 1000:0

Code C5: Call chipset hook to copy BIOS back to E000 & F000 shadow RAM

Abit AA8 Duramax

Thank you for the blazingly fast reply :)


Do you think it would be possible for me to return only the defective RAM (I bought a kit)? This is my first DDR2 system and I don't have any spare to run on; I really need to get this system up and running ASAP. Thanks again!
