Crshes and installation problems with VS512MB400


Recommended Posts



there is a similar thread below, but I got a slightly different system, and don't want to screw things up. Yeah, I don't know much about this.


When I install my two VS512MB400 blocks, I get blue screen crashes and CRC errors when installing stuff. Some games also won't load savegames properly.


I think this is the relevant information:



Athlon 2600+


I got the newest BIOS (1007). No overclocking. Is this a compatibility issue? Which should be the most stable BIOS settings for me?

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

VS512MB400 or VS1GBKIT400

CPU Freq: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 100%

Resulting Frequency: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

Memory Timing: 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): 8T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

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

All other settings are motherboards defaults

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!
