c13 Posted May 3, 2005 Share Posted May 3, 2005 I swapped out modules of 3200C2 and put in 2xCMX256A 3200C2PT in the exact same DIMM slots as I used previously (see my post on the IC Inquiry thread: http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=188477#post188477 as to which rev./lot #s). My AS8v1.0 (i865PE) with BIOS rev. 16 posted, detected both new modules and then failed to boot into WinXP Pro (no welcome screen, just black after the DMI pool verifying part of the show.) The settings at that time were 204 MHz FSB and 2-3-3-6. Maybe this wasn't rev B- like I was hoping, I thought so I relaxed those gentle timings to 200 FSB and 2.5-3-3-8 and tried again. Voltages were always at 2.60. I was able to see a "Windows XP is starting up" on my next try but then came a sudden reboot. My next attempt to load "Last Known Good Configuration" seemed to be working. Then I got a popup message about a corrupt or missing registry file needing to be reloaded, and my desktop never showed. I swapped out both modules and replaced them with my 3200C2's, probably not in the exact same slots. I booted into WinXP no prob at 2.5-3-3-8 @ 200. Cleared CMOS before doing this. Anyone have ideas? I did clear CMOS after inserting the new DIMMs if that makes a diff. I don't quite understand WinXP and my board's pickiness over inserting new DIMMs. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
