It would be reall hard to get 4 bad modules from us.

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? 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?

Hi, The 4 modules are about a year old or so.

xms3200 512mb 400mhz

cmx512-3200ll

xms3205v1.2

0403024

 

The motherboard has been replaced so I can not give you the settings that applied but everything was the default settings. No overclocking or anything like that.

Can you try testing the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and I would set these settings manually.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%/DDR400

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T

Hi, Okay I tested all the modules and only 1 was bad. (so much for Frys knowing what they are doing). The 1 module failed on certain addresses.

 

Whats next?
