Can you tell me our modules part# (How To Read the Memory Label) and the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?




the mb is a biostar this is all the information i can find on the box i dont know what you need though

Please go to your bios setup and look for the Dim Voltage and set it to 2.7X Volts and then test the module with http://www.memtest.org



I got into the bios by pressing delete on startup and looked for the settings you asked for i was unable to find them am i looking in the wrong spot or did i just miss it

sorry to be so much trouble

I would suggest you ask the MB maker to help you, as there are just to many MB's on the market for me to knwo all of them. But normally the Dim Voltage will be where you set the CPU Frequency and Voltage, IE: Frquency and Voltage Control.
