Faulty TWINX1024-3200LLPT


Recommended Posts

Hello, I purchased 1024MB (2x512MB) PC3200 Model #TWINX1024-3200LLPT from Outpost.com a little over a year ago.


I've always had random reboots once in a while since I built that computer a year ago. It was not being heavily used before, but now I am using it as my primary desktop, and it reboots randomly every day, when I am multitasking with many memory-intensive applications. Programs are randomly crashing. This is all with the default SPD settings detected (2.5-3-3-8).


I've singled the source of the problem to the RAM. memtest86 gave me 143 errors in the first pass, and even more errors in each successive pass.


Some System Specs: Pentium 4 3.0C GHz (800MHz bus); Gigabyte GA-8KNXP v1.0 motherboard; ATI AiW Radeon 9800 Pro. None of the components are overclocked in the computer.


I tried the RAM in another system, and it gave errors on that system also. I also put different modules into my system, and it didn't give errors.


In the GA-8KNXP BIOS (which is already updated to the latest version), I tried it with the default SPD settings it detected (2.5-3-3-8), and it gave the problems I mentioned. If I set it at 2-3-2-6 (which it should work at), the system will not post, and I have to reset the CMOS. 2-3-2-7 is the lowest I can go, and it is much more unstable when I am on that setting.


I was wondering if I could get this "TWINX1024-3200LLPT" set replaced.
