VS512MB400 "Memory write/read failure" at POST

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I have two ValueSelect VS512MB400 memory sticks in a 2.4 GHz P-IV machine.

Motherboad is an Intel board. One of the sticks i bought back in november if i remember, the otherone in december.

After 3 months of use (that was in February) I started getting blue screens up till a point (last week) when at reboot I got a total failure during BIOS POST's memory test (point from where my BIOS won't permit starting up my Box). The messages i get are :


"Memory write/read failure at .... should've been ...."

"Memory address line failure at ... "


My hardware is :

Dell Optiplex GX260

2.4GHz P-IV processor with 533MHz bus

the memory bus from the motherboard is set to : 266MHz (this motherboard wont allow more).

OS : win XP.


Thank you in advance,

Richard :D:
