My Memory Stick Won't Work


Recommended Posts

I have a stick of corsair platinum series xms3200 256mb 400mhz cl2 and I put it into my soyo kt400 dragon ultra platinum edition motherboard and it won't work, I've tried several things such as switching slots, flashing cmos, etc... and still nothing. I have another stick of memory in there right now and its working fine, so I'm thinking my corsair stick must be bad. Any help or suggestions?


Thanks in advance,

. Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

CMX256A or CMX512-3200C2

CPU Freq: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2.5T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
