Afkamm Posted December 28, 2004 Share Posted December 28, 2004 Hi there :) I have a similar problem. Corsair value select dual channel memory #VS1GBKIT400C3 (DDR400 (PC3200) 184pin non-ecc unbuffered, two 64Mx64 bit). Bought a few weeks ago from http://www.scan.co.uk My motherboard is an Abit VA-20, has 2 ram slots and can take up to 2GB in total. Processor is an Athlon XP 2800+ (333MHz FSB). At first the only problems I had were games (battlefield1942, black hawk down) crashing straight to the desktop without any warning within about 5-10 minutes of starting. Firefox being totally unusable as it crashed non-stop. Trillian crashing, but not as severe as Firefox. Graphics within webpages being screwed up (though not all of them). Now I've had a few "without warning" reboots. Sods law that the 3 programs I use the most are also the ones that crash the most. :( I've tried with nothing plugged into the motherboard and using onboard graphics/sound. Still the same as when I have my ATI 9800SE AIW and soundcard plugged in. Also upgraded my Enermax 350w PSU to a 500w PSU. No joy. I've used memtest86, with both sticks installed I get no errors after several passes, same goes with each stick on it's own. I've tried setting the DRAM timing manually, but I'm not sure what I'm doing. This is what the BIOS offers. DIMM Voltage Adjust - 2.54v / 2.58v / 2.67v Dram CAS Latency - 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3 Bank Interleave - disabled / 2 bank / 4 bank Precharge to Active(TRP) - 2T / 3T / 4T / 5T Active to Precharge(TRAS) - 6T / 7T / 8T / 9T Active to CMD(Trcd) - 2T / 3T / 4T / 5T Dram Burst Length - 4 / 8 Dram Command Rate - 1T Command / 2T Command Any help/suggestions are appreciated. Cheers. Marc :-) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
