Check my compatibility . Please :)


Recommended Posts

I just got a 4 replacement modules from corsair...after installing them, I am still getting blue screen 'memory dump' errors and random crashes/reboots/shutdowns while running/installing winXP. I am able to get into BIOS and change latency settings from 2-3-3-6, 2.5-3-3-6, 3-3-3-8(SPD), 3-3-3-6, 3-4-4-6. I also changed the Ram voltage to 2.5-2.75v. I had replaced all components (motherboard, power supply, cd-rom), thinking that it was not the ram causing this problem, but after many hours I concluded that maybe my ram is faulty (again) or not compatible with my system?? Oh, and sometimes the pc will just "hang"... cd rom lights would blink, and the monitor would not power up. I would have to unplug from behind, wait 5-10 minutes and replug, then it will boot up again.


My PC specs:

Motherboard: MSI 865PE Neo2-PLS (Platinum)

CPU: Intel P4 2.8GHz 800FSB

Hard Drive: Maxtor u133 160GB

Video: MSI FX5700-256MB

Roms: Lite On CD/DVD combo, and Mad Dog DVD-wr

Power Supply: Allied Power Supply 400w

Memory: TwinX CMX512-3200C2PT XMS3202 v4.2

XMS3200 512MB 400 MHz CL2


TwinX CMX512-3200C2PT XMS3202 v3.1

XMS3200 512MB 400MHz CL2


Fans: 3 LED 80mm Fans

Lights: Liquid Thunder Light thingy and Black Light

OS: WinXP Pro sp2


Does anyone see anything that may be incompatible with each other in my specs??

Should I upgrade to a 550W Powersupply?


I even tried disconnecting 2 fans and the lights, so I don't know if it is the powersupply because it will crash after loading winxp (sp2). If anyone has any input at all, I appreciate it.................. I need this pc for school in a couple of weeks!!

I got an Aspire 520w power supply today and used my sis radeon vid card... pc still crashed. Ramguy, although, your suggestion to up dim voltage to 2.85 worked better, I was able to stay on desktop longer!! haha... I currently have it up to 2.9 and tempted to set it at 3.0v. I set the timing to cas 3-3-3-8 and I'm getting "Dram is too tightly so reset timing" at boot up. Also I can't run mem test because my pc won't stay on for longer than 10 mins. What's weird is that after a crash, I have to unplug the cord from the back of the powersupply to get a full boot... if I use the power button or powersupply switch to turn the pc back on, my computer will just hang (cd rom led's blinking, no video power). What could this be?
