Bad Memory


Inc0gn1t0

Recommended Posts

I've been experiencing some errors one my machine that could be memory related (Referenced memory error on a lot of applications and corrupt downloads). I have Corsair 1024 MB TwinX PC2700. I tested both sticks with memtest-86 v3.2, two passes:

tst 4, Pass 0, Failing adress 00003221bfc, 50.0mb, Good a2650bfb, Bad a2650bdb, Err-Bits 000000, Count 2, Chan 1.

My system:

Asus A7N8X Deluxe, AMD Athlon 2800+ 333, Corsair 1024 MB TwinX PC2700, Hercules Prophet 9800Pro, 2 x Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 S-ATA 120Gb (Raid 0), LG CD-RW 52-24-52, Nec ND 3540 16X, Enermax 400W, Thermaltake Xaser III V1000A

All settings are on default. Can I request RMA, or are there other tests I should do to rule out that it's not the memory that's causing my problems?

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS2700C2 Cass 2-3-3-6 for example or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, 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, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.

Thanks Ram Guy for your reply. The modules are Twinx 2x CMX 512-2700ll (xms2700 512MB 333MHZ 2225- t1), Version 1.2, Lot 0316003. I increased the voltage, but I wasn't sure about the timing settings. So I tested both 2-2-2-5 (original setting) and 2-3-2-5. I tested each module separately, and I get consistent error messages on one module (even if I use a different slot). I do not have (access to) another system to test the modules in.
