CMX256A-2700C2 only at 224MB


Recommended Posts

My RAM is only showing 224MB on the post and i can't boot or install windows. I get about 5 different blue screen errors. I want to get a ticket number for this thing so i can get my computer up and running before the semester starts january 10th, 2005.

sorry to bring this post back from the dead. But I just got a chance to finally fire up the most up to date version of memtest. Within 2 minutes, it found 10 errors. I am going to let the computer run overnight and see how many it finds. I will post the errors, locations, and whatever else up if necessary. thanks.




I switched over to an Antec True380 power supply and I unplugged all hard drives and all CD drives except for one, my plextor cdrw drive.

Also, when I was trying to install windows (b/c I got the new power supply), I got a whole slew of errors. But, the first install with the new power supply went off without a hitch. Then, stuff would crash randomly in windows and i would get BSODs again. Now, I cannot install windows successfully and here are the errors I have had so far:

Also, I was wondering if you guys knew of a bootable motherboard tester. I don't want to get shiny new RAM and have it screw up on me again because of something else. I seriously doubt it's the power supply, b/c antec's have good tolerances and I doubt it's the chip, b/c the temperatures are well within specs. Thanks in advance.
