cant get ram to work in this board HELP!!


Recommended Posts

hey all, need a little help.

I have been trying to get my old cmx512-3200c2pt ram sticks (trying to put 2 in his comp) to work in my friends rig but every time i run memtest it fails around test 6.


I have tryed the settings at :cpu freq:200mhz (its a p4 3.0ghz prescot)

cas latency 2.0

trcd 3

trp 3

tras 7 and also at 6

i cannot change the dim voltage as thier is no setting in bios to do this, the only other thing i can see is that the ram sticks are both differant revisions (rev 3 and 5).

It is not possible to update the bios for this board as it was bought from a shop, the model is "advent T9000" and getting any info for this pc has been a nightmare :mad:


Below is the specs my friend has managed to get hold of:
