windward104 Posted February 18, 2005 Share Posted February 18, 2005 I'm also running TWINX1024-3200XL on an Abit AV8 mobo, with AMD 64 FX-53. I've been reading other posts with the AV8, and been trying everything recommended with no results. I always run only the minimum required hardware to run windows setup. No sound card, no nic, only one stick of ram, etc. Mobo has latest bios. Loaded stick one from TWINX1024-3200XL into AV8 slot 1, windows gives "setup cannot copy file xxxxxx blah blah blah". Stick 2 in slot one, same thing. Try each stick in slot 3, same thing. Test both sticks using AV8 and memtest, allot of red. Pull a TWINX1024-3200XLPRO from my IC7 P4 3.2EE, load one into AV8 slot 3 (wont fit into slot 1, proc hsf), windows loads without a hitch. Plug the other into slot 4 for dual channel, all is well. Pull a TWINX512-3200C2 out of my P4 3.0 and load into slot 1 and 2 (smaller hs so they fit), all is well. So, slots 1-4 on the AV8 are ok? Move TWINX1024-3200XL to my IC7 P4 3.2EE, computer not a happy camper. Test both sticks on this mobo with memtest, again, allot of red. Now here's what's blowing my mind. I had another TWINX1024-3200XL for the AMD build on the way during all of this, arrived this morning. Did every combo as I did with the first set, same thing. Setup dont like them, windows dont like them and memtest dont like them. Above is the condensed version. Maybe I'm in denial, Ive been using Corsair XMS exclusively for all my builds/upgrades and never a problem, but I cant believe that I could get two bad sets in a row. Help...
