Faulty TWINX1024-3200XL module


Recommended Posts

Hello. About a month and a half ago I bought a TWINX1024-3200XL from MWAVE. Initially my mobo read them as 2-2-3-5 but I corrected it to 2-2-2-5. The modules worked as they should until about 5 days ago when I began getting lock-ups usually followed by a BSOD with MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. I checked my system's temperature, event viewer, BIOS settings, etc. but everything was ok. Today I reformatted and reinstalled everything to rule out a software problem. Now I am getting BSODs with KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR. I checked the HDD but it was ok. I downloaded and ran memtest-86 v3.2. and got hundreds of errors. I then proceeded to test one memory module at a time and one of the modules consistently shows a lot of errors and the other none. I've been using my box for about 5 hours with the no-errors module only and so far no BSOD or lockups. Is there any other test I should do? If not, is it ok for me to fill an RMA?

Update 10-3-05: I've been using my box for about two days now with the error-free module. So far no BSOD or lock-ups. I do believe the other stick was the culprit. Please advise.

Please make sure that you have the latest -3 Bios and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 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.
