Unstable System with Twinx 3200c2PT and VS1GB400C3


Recommended Posts

Hi Ramguy,


I have recently bought a TwinX 1GB 3200C2PT pair and a VS1GB400C3 to go in 2 of my pcs. When installed one system will not boot (System 1) and just blue screens the other boots but is very unstable (System 3). I have run Memtest86+ 1.55 and got the following results:-


TwinX (as sole memory in system)

Module 1 + 2 = 1079 errors

Module 1 = 0 errors

Module 2 = 1079 errors (most failures @ 77.8, 88.3, 332.3 and the module fails all tests @ same addresses)


Value Select (as sole memory in system) = 43 errors @ 258.3 & 258.8 (the majority occured during Test # 6 in Memtest86+ 1.55)


I ran the tests in the systems below (Auto SPD + latest BIOS's) and all systems reported similar error rates.

Please test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and I would set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts as well. If you do find one failing then lets get it or them replaced. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

However; if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem, and I would try testing the memory in another system to be sure.
