RPiazza72 Posted March 6, 2005 Share Posted March 6, 2005 I ran memtest on a set of modules I just recieved as replacements for a previous bad set there are xms3200XLPRO 1 GB2-2-2-5. The previous pair I tested on memtest came back with 44,000 errors. I tested the current pair in memtest and they came back with five errors in eight passes. All the errors are in test seven I have run memtest a few different times and I always get errors in test seven. Another difference with this pair is my motherbaord did not recognize the latency. The last pair read 2-2-2-5. This pair read 2-3-3-8. In any case I adjusted the bios to read the correct latency. I ran memtest with the correct latency and still get errors in test seven. I also have a pair of XMS TWINX 512 MB 2-3-3-6 memory and when I run that in memtest I get no errors at all. What do errors in test 7 mean and do I have another pair of bad memory? My computer has been relatively stable but I have gotten some crashes and the error report states a hardware problem. My specs are as follows AMD Athlon FX-55 MSI Neo 2 K8N Platinum Motherboard Awards 1.4 BIOS Seagate 200GB SATA Barracuda Drive Seagate 120GB SATA Barracuda Drive Seagate 80GB SATA Barracuda Drive eVGA Nivida 6800 Ultra 256MB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
