VS512MB400C3 memtest86 errors

Recommended Posts

I am running 2 VS512MB400C3 sticks on an MSI K7N2 Delta2-LSR with an Athlon XP 2800+ processor in an Antec case w/a 350w psu (I think).

I ran memtest overnight each time.

When I ran one stick or the other I didnt notice any errors but when I put them in slots 1 and 3 (as the mobo indicates) I got 10k+ errors. I noticed the errors beginning around test 6-8 (modulus and block moves iirc). If I put them in 1 and 2 I get about 20 errors in test 4 (all around 480mb).

What does it sound like and what should I do?

The reason I tried memtest86 is because I had problems with the system rebooting when used. It would run fine for a week if it was just idling, but when run it would randomly reboot. I tried driver updates and reinstalling windows xp several times, etc.

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your MB and load Setup/Optimized default settings, and try the following BIOS settings;

VS512MB400C3 or VS1GBKIT400C3

Cell Menu

CPU Freq: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

System Performance: User Define

Memory Frequency: 166

Resulting Frequency: 166 MHz (333 FSB)

CPU/Memory ratio: 1:1

Memory Timing: User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T

DDR Reference Voltage: 2.7 Volts

AGP Voltage: Default *unless you have ATI (9200 or 9600) or NVIDIA (5200 or 5700) then 1.6 Volts suggested!*

All other settings are motherboards defaults

Then please test them one at a time with http://www.memtest.org and let’s make sure it's not some other issue! I would run the test for at least 2-3 passes to be sure!
