Gelleous Posted December 22, 2004 Share Posted December 22, 2004 I am having trouble with reboots and lost or corrupted files. In a new system I am using a Chaintech 9cjs mobo, intel p4 3.0 ghz non prescott cpu, twinx1024-3200xlpt ram, Antec true 480 psu, Nvidea 6800 GT, and Western Digital 160 HDD. I have updated the bios to the latest 7.0 and am running at all default settings. I called chaintech and they suggested I run 3Dmark03 in a loop to see what happens. On my inital try I couldn't get it to run, it kept telling me it found corrupted files. I downloaded it again and tried with the same results. I then removed one stick and tried them individually. One stick ran for 8 hrs straight before I stopped it and the other ran only about 10 minutes before the first corrupted file error then fewer minutes each time I restarted until it would not even begin the benchmark. I ran the memtest86 ver. 3.2 you recommend three times and on the stick in question I got 2 errors on test 3 each time and on test 4 I got 79, 81, and 84 errors respectively. All other tests showed 0. I have no idea what that means but I hope you do. I see from the memtest screen my settings are RAM :202 mhz (DDR 404) / CAS : 2.5-2-2-5 The second stick of the pair showed no errors on any of the tests. Please advise if there is something else you want me to try. Thanks, John Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
