pandamooo Posted September 6, 2005 Share Posted September 6, 2005 Hello, Memory: 2x 512MB - PC3500 - Cas2 Motherboard: MSI 865PE Neo2 I have had the most frustrating time with my memory since I bought it about 2 years ago. After many trials and errors I have reduced the problem to being caused by the memory contacts. My MSI board has special indictator lights to indicate what the problem is in the boot sequence. It always points to allocating the ram. For reasons stated below: Often times after relocating my computer tower, my computer will not boot. (The MSI lights point to ram) After reseating the memory modules many times, it will finally boot. Sometimes after many months of working just fine, I will notice that I only have "512MB" of ram single channel. I will have to take out both pairs of memory and play with them to get them to a) boot, b) both show up. Sometimes after many months of working fine, I will crash randomly when booting into windows, or 3 minutes into a game. Removing the memory module will correct the issue. I suspect it is the memory modules and not the motherboard because before I had an Intel 865PE board, and experienced much the same problems. One of the reasons I upgraded to the MSI board was because of this infrequent Problems i was experiencing. When the computer is up and working fine, it is stable for months, even when a heat wave is upon my computer. Memtest passes just fine. Any suggestions?
