Same memory error when HL2 locks up.

Recommended Posts

The instruction at "0x24178c2b" referenced memory at "0x00b22ed0", the memory could not be read.


Seems like I get this error 10 times a day when I'm playing HALF-LIFE 2 Counter-Strike:Source or HALF-LIFE 2 mods. It's getting really frustrating. I won't get it when I play HL1, probably because it doesn't take up half as much as CPU and MEMORY usuage. I have a decent setup.


GIG of RAM (not sure what series of corsair)

AMD 3200+


ATI 9600 XT


What the heck is going on??? Is it overheating? (computer runs at 115 degrees on average with a THERMALTAKE case and 6-7 fans on the inside)

Someone help me!!!

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 memory timings By SPD


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.
