A8V Deluxe and CMX512-3200XL blue screen


Recommended Posts

I have the ASUS A8V Deluxe with AMD Athlon 64 3500+ and with the CMX512-3200XLPT (two sticks). I keep getting the blue screen already a few times, when I play games such as Half-Life 2 it keeps on coming up and restarts the whole computer; this is only when I have 1 stick slotted.


I tried placing 1GB's worth each 512, in the instructed slots for dual-channel. The OS wouldn't even boot up to the start desktop.


What is recommended to fix this problem?

With the latest bios installed. Please install the modules in slots 2-4 and then enter the bios setup and load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and set the timings manually to whats listed bellow.

CAS Latency CL=2.0

Row Cycle Time tRC Bios Default

Row Refresh Cyc Time tRFC Bios Default

Ras# to CAS# delay tRCD 2

Row to Row delay Bios Default

Min Ras# Active Time tRAS 5

Row Precharge Time tRP 2

Write Recovery Time Bios Default

Write to Read delay Bios Default

Read to Write Delay Bios Default

Refresh Period tREF Bios Default

Enable 2T Timing Disabled

Then test the system with http://www.memtest.org and make sure it's stable! If you have problems, I would set Enable 2T Timings to AUTO and test it again!
