Need ID number for warranty return

Recommended Posts

I bought TwinX1024-3200PT 1GB DDR400 XMS3200 Dual Channel Memory from Zipzoomfly. The order is dated Feb. 7, 2005. The mem was installed on an Asus A7N8XE-Delux mother board replacing 512MB of existing memory. The crashes started a few days after and occurred every day of two. I tried a number of things with the help of a local computer tech. After removing the memory and reinstalling the original dimms everything returned to normal and there have been no crashes in 7-8 days. All settings in the bios are set to default. Bios ver is 1011. Is there anything else I need to do or can an RMA be issued for the return of this matched kit? Thanks.

What CPU speed do you have installed?

Please try these settings:

With the A7N8X-E please set the FSB jumper to pins 2-3 with the modules in slots 2-3 and then reset or clear the bios and load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings manually. Then please test the system with http://www.memtest.org.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

 

I have 4 of these exact MB's and this is what had to be done to solve problems with aggressive memory, no matters who's I tested. In addition, a few other's had some success disabling Spread Spectrum in the bios as well. I would take a look at http://www.asusforums.org as well in the AMD section.

These are the default settings that are being used now. I am not sure about the 2.7 volt setting -- it may be 2.65, but everything else I am sure about. I'll change the pins if I have to, but I don't understand what that will do.

The cpu is an AMD XP3200 and I don't know what you mean by a 200 front side bus cpu? I am doing no over clocking at this point. I won't be able to deal with the jumpers until Saturday. I'll download and run memtest and let you know mid-week if this looks like it will solve the problem. Thanks for your help.

As long as you set the CPU_FSB jumper and reset the bios and then set the settings as listed with the modules in slots 2-3 then please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
