3200LLPT failing memtest #4


Recommended Posts



I have been experiencing the very odd crash during gaming, and now more recently, most of my bittorrent downloads only go to 99.9% which I'm told can be attributed to bad memory.


I went and downloaded memtest and ran it, to find I get 2 errors in test #4. I then took out two of my three modules and tested each individually. Nothing showed up...


I then put two in, and the errors started posting again. I'm not sure how to interpret this and I don't see how in the world it's going to help me figure out which, if not all, of my sticks are bad. Here are my specs.



2xCorsair Platinum Series XMS TWINX CMX256A-3200LLPT rev. 1.2

Ok I remember testing them individually at the recomended voltage and no errors showing up in memtest, but the issues outlined above remained. Then as time went on a new symptom arose with Windows never closing windows explorer properly, thus every time I went to reboot, it would say END TASK: Explorer. I was fairly certain to this was attributed to the memory, as were all my other problems.


Just yesterday I replaced everything on my computer but the same RAM as above, and the same persistent errors remain, especially that END TASK: Explorer error, which can't be good. Anyway I was just wondering what settings I should put the BIOS at with the new motherboard to run memtest. I have an


3800+ Ath-64

Geforce 7800 GT 256mb.

The RAM was set to 2-3-2-6, mem voltage 2.7


I'm gonna go put in some old PC2100 ram to test it while I wait for a response.

I just ram memtest one each of the new modules at 2.7V, 2-3-2-5 and no errors after two passes, then I ran it with all of them in for one pass, no errors. Do you think that points to something else causing the end task error etc? Could it possibly be the hard drive?
