FiveO Posted March 4, 2005 Share Posted March 4, 2005 Ram Guy, I just received my stick that I had ordered from http://www.buyxg.com and I am fairly certain it is bad. I installed it into my Asus A7V8X with a Athlon XP 2400. It sees the RAM but when you try to load a OS it fails. I tried two different versions of Linux and Windows XP Professional and they fail to load. My other computer has a A7N8X with a CMX512-2700C2 in it. I took the memory out of it and put it in the A7V8X and it worked fine. I am certain that it is not a BIOS setting as my other stick worked. The only difference is that my new one that just came today is revision 1.4 and my good working one is revision 1.3 I also tried the suspected bad module in all three memory slots and I also double checked to make sure that I have the latest BIOS installed. I even reset the BIOS settings back to factory defaults to no avail. I am going to contact the company I purchased it from tomorrow but I just wanted to get your thoughts on it. I work on computers for a living and I suspect it is the module because my other stick works. Also I took the suspected bad module and installed it into my A7N8X system that has Windows XP installed on it. Windows XP failed to load with the suspected bad module and when I put the orginal one back in it booted properly again. Jason Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
