Bad Stick for sure.


Recommended Posts

Memory 1 GB Corsair Twinx1024-400PT Motherboard Asus p4c400 Deluxe everything at Standard settings. Problem, getting BSOD with a warning to check the memory. DL'd and ran Memtest per suggestion on the FAQ Forum here. Got errors on test 1, 3 & 5 before I stopped it.

Tried 1 stick at a time as suggested, the first stick will not boot at all nada, nuttin! the second got to test 3 wihtout a problem butthey are a matched set so if one is bad I need both replaced. Anything else I should try or do I go straight to the RMA?

 

Thanks,

Can you tell me the exact model# of your memory module and please tell me if you purchased that module as a pair or set; also what is the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and its FSB as well? In addition, please tell me if you have the latest BIOS installed on your system and what BIOS settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?

Model # of Ram is 2 pcs. Corsair Platinum Series Twinx CMX512-400PT, XMS4000v1.1 512MB 500MHZ Purchased in December 2003 as a matched set from Newegg.com.

Motherboard is an Asus P4C800 running an Intel 3.2 GHZ CPU with an 800 MHZ Front Side Bus and the latest Bios update is installed. All settings on the Mother Board are set to autodetect or standard, nothing is currently set to overclock the RAM, CPU or Video. Machine has performed superbly until 2 weeks ago when I started getting BSOD and the warnings to check the memory.

Please note, 1 stick will not even boot, so it can't even be tested.

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

TwinX1024 or TwinX512-4000

Advanced/Jumper Free

AI over clocking: Manual

CPU Freq: 200

DRAM Clock: 400 MHz

Memory or Dim Reference voltage: 2.75 Volts

System performance: AUTO

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

Advanced/Chipset

Configure Dram timing by SPD: Disabled/User define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

SDRAM Burst Length: 8

Performance Acceleration Mode: Auto

USB Legacy Support: Disabled

All other settings should be set to default settings!

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
