:[pouts:

Just bought a twin pak Twinx1024-3200C2PRO, S/N 0418074-1.

Install--1 long beep (existing system), restart using insert key set all to spd , restart, blu screen at windoze, Change voltage to memory (try 2.6 - 2.8) and re try...blue s...notice the led on one stick does not have same pattern at start as other, starts with a yellow in middle. Remove 1 stick, system boots to win. Swap sticks, long beep. Now I know why it was on sale. RMA time?

 

Abit KV7

3200 Barton

520 W PS, OCZ

El cheapo mem ( was trying to upgrade)

Thanx

Dave

Can you tell me the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well that you have on your system? In addition, please tell me the BIOS settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

with your product installed the fsb was 400. dram clock@ spd, bios settings, tried all voltages and had to use the inset key to get to setup with the bad stick installed. With the good stick = boot to win. The bad stick had a kind of gritty feeling type of feel when inserting it in the socket. The good one doesn't.

Please make sure that you install the memory modules on either slots 1&3 or 2&3 and also have the latest BIOS installed for your MB, load Setup/optimized default settings and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-3200C2

Softmenu Setup

CPU Freq: 200

DRAM Clock: 400

CPU/Memory ratio: 1:1 or 3:3

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.7/2.75 Volts

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

Advanced/Chipset

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/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

All other settings should be set to default settings!

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!

Been there done that...no t-shirt. The one stick will not get thru post Cannot run memtest, only produces a long beep. When the lights on that stick start, a single yellow in the middle is the start of the sequence, not the 2 greens at the one end like its mate that works.
