Bad Ram?


Recommended Posts

I bought a TWINX512-3200LLPT Corsair from microcenter about a month ago. When i updated my bios i noticed that my computer wouldn't load into windows and automatically shuts down. I thought it was an os falture and repaired and fresh installed my os. That didnt solve the probem and now i get a blue screen. Then i tried rolling back my BIOS and clearing the CCMOS still get the blue screen. Then i removed one of the memory modules and now my computer loads and starts installing Xp. After window finished installing i try both Ram modules again and i get the same blue screen. When i use my old dual ram modules it loads up fine so i dont think its my motherboard.

Could one of my ram modules failed? If not then what else could be causing this?

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 TwinX512-3200LL

Softmenu Setup

CPU Freq: 200

DRAM Clock: 400

CPU/Memory ratio: 1:1

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!*


Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

Hyperthreading: Enabled

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!
