bad stick of ram, RMA please


AkyGI

Recommended Posts

One stick of ram has gone bad. I get frequent crashes while playing some games. If I take out the bad stick I get no crashes while gaming. I have tested the bad stick with memtest and errors show up. Any suggestions?

Please make sure that you install the memory modules on either slots 1&3 or 2&4 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 MHz

CPU/Memory ratio: 1:1

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.75 Volts

System performance: AUTO

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: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

Game Accelerator Mode: Auto

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!

The modules were already in slots 1 and 3 (before I removed the bad one). I already have the latest BIOS for my MB. I tried the settings you posted, still getting the errors on the bad module. Any further suggestions???
