Bad Memory


CARTERMAN

Recommended Posts

I purchased the VS1GKIT400 and while playing EverQuest II the system will get memory errors. I disabled all cache on the system but it continued to fail. I got the memory test off the site that you suggested in other post and there are errors. I removed one of the memory modules and retested and still got errors. I switched the memory and the errors moved. I put a known good ram and there were no errors. I have a PT800CE-A ECS motherboard and running Windows XP. What other sugestions do you have?

My CPU is a 3.2 Ghz with 800 mhz FSB. I set the Bios to factory defaults they are as follows. Dram clock (by SPD) Timing (Auto by SPD) SDRAM CAS Latency (2.5) Bank Interleave (4 Bank) Precharge to active TRP ( 4T) DRAM Command Rate (2T Command) Auto detect CPU clock (enable) CPU voltage Reg. (default) DDR voltage reg. (default)

Please make sure that you hae the latest bios and then load setup defaults and see if you can set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X Volts and test the modules one at a time. If you get errors with both modules I would test the modules in another system.

Updated the bios but it does not give you the option to pick 2.7v. It only gives you the option in %. + 2%. I retested and it has errors at 56.5 mb, 365.1 mb and 605.4 with two dimms in. I place one at a time and they error at different locations on each dimms.

My system requires 2.5 v unbuffered Double Data Rate SDRAM there is no adjustment for 2.7V. I looked at your compatibility page and it shows the VS1GBKIT400. I have tried everything and I still get errors and I don't currently have another computer in install the DIMM into. What do you recommend? Getting a RMA so that you can test the RAM, If is bad you replace it or if there is no problem found could you replace it for more compatible ram?

Set it to = .6% the MHZ went from 100 mhz to 200 mhz. I retested the ram one at a time. One ram dimm would get errors at 56.5 mb and the other ram would get errors at 93.4mb. Every time I would test them it would come up the same. When I change the TRP to any other than 4T the computer would lock up requiring me to reset the Bios. Even when I set the Timming to turbo or ultra it would lock up.

I would see if a friend can maybe help you test them in another MB, but what you have posted so far would suggest some other problem. If you want to try replacing your modules please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
