Memtest error number 5 + random reboots

Recommended Posts

Hi, I keep getting Blue Screens and then random reboots, so I ran MEMTEST on my RAM.... Each time I get an error number 5 on my first pass.... I get this error on both sticks even when they are tested seperately..... I hope it's not the RAM, but rather some setting.....

RAS to CAS delay - 3

Precharge delay - 6

Burst - 8

 

AGP Aperture Size - 64MB (usually this should be 128 or 256 Meg depending on your Video Card, please check the Doc that came with you VC)

 

Freq/Volt Control ->

 

Preformance Mode - Normal

D.O.T. Range - Disabled

CPU Ratio - Locked

DRAM Freq (Mhz) - 400 Mhz DDR/200 Mhz Clock

Spread Spectrum - Disabled

Adjust CPU Bus Clock - [ 200 ]

DDR Clock - 400

Adjust AGP/PCI Clock - 66.66/33.33

Hi, I changed the values to what you suggested and the result was that each memory module still produced error number 5 even when tested individualy.....

Please tell me what else I can do, Thank you.....

That might suggest some other problem, can you test the modules in another system? We can try replacing the memory but from what you have posted I am not sure the memory is the problem.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

Can you tell me the make and model of PSU you have and the rest of the system configuration? And have you tried setting the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and I would set the AGP Appature size to 128 Meg?

Hi, I adjusted the volts to 2.8 as well as the AGP to 128.... I tested each RAM module one at a time, and I am still getting error number 5 on the first pass.... Here is my updated SYSTEM and BIOS info including PSU.....

Getting errors with both modules would suggest some other problem, but I have no problem replacing your modules if you want to try that. 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, I would encourage you to test them in another system if you can.

Hi, Well I finally found a friend who would let me test my memory in their system. And as expected...... IT WORKED !!!!!

 

Well, atleast it passed memtest #5 on the first pass.....

 

But the problem still exisits on my computer, so basically, I'm going to focus on the CPU and Motherboard, since they are the only other components of my system.....

 

Any suggestion ????

 

Thanks...... :-)

Yes I will, Thanks for your help...... But I do have 1 more question......

 

When I got my system, the CPU was overclocked..... I turned it back to normal..... (From 3.4 back to 2.8) Could something have happened to the CPU, and if so, could a bad CPU be responsible for an error #5 in memtest ???

Yes, it could if the CPU was failing, but was the system running O.K. at the speed? In addition, I just noticed your Video Card I have never heard of this card. Is it an old one? If so it may not be AGP 2.1 Compliant and that might be causing this as well. Can you test the system with a more common Video Card?

My video card came from the Clinton years..... I think it was produced in 1996..... I was only using it because it was the only one I had, but I will try to find a newer one to test the system.....

 

As for my CPU, I never tried it at 3.4. I don't know if it was ever stable then. The first thing I did was bring it back to 2.8. (Flash the BIOS) And the system has always been a mess since I first turned it on.....

 

Thanks again.......
