1 bad stick in set


Recommended Posts

I ordered a stick of memory at Christmas through a local shop. System crashed on occasion but after a while I noticed it was only certain applications.


I am running 1024MB with a matched set of CMX512-3200LL //

0428097-1 is failing


Ran memtest. When both sticks are present, in any slot; test fails around 950MB. This stick in any slot on its own fails at roughly 450MB. The other stick works great in any slot.


I am running:

Gigabyte GA-7N400 pro2 nforce2 board

2500+ AMD Athlon XP

Maxtor 120GB SATA


ATI 9600XT 128MB

Hercules Gamesurround Fortissimo III

Please set the Dim Over Voltage control to +.2 Volts and set the memory frequency ratio to 100% or DDR333. then test the suspect module with http://www.memtest.org. If you find the module is still failing them please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! If the module passes please imstall both modules in slots 2-3 and test then in dual channel at DDR333. You would only be able to run DDR400 with a 200 FSB CPU with this platform.
