Blue Screens and Difficult OS installs


Recommended Posts

I returned from College last summer to come home to several issues with my PC. I'd get various Blue Screen's in Windows XP. I replaced the Motherboard, processor, hard drive, and powersupply. To keep this short, the only thing left I can think of is the memory. Upon investigation I came upon this messageboard. I ran Memtest86 and had over 79k errors reported with my Corsair VS1GB400C3 RAM. I've determined that the ram is the problem, as I have tried 2 other modules which have passed Memtest86 error free. Please let me know what my next step should be.


Windows XP

Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe

AMD Athlon XP 3200+

1GB Corsair Value Select DDR RAM Module.

Then please make sure that you have the latest bios and then Please try these settings: With the A7N8X-E please set the FSB jumper to pins 2-3 with the modules in slot 2 or 1 and then reset or clear the bios and load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings manually. Then please test the system with http://www.memtest.org.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%

Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 200 MHz

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T


I have had 4 of these exact MB's and this is what had to be done to solve problems, no matters who's I tested. In addition, a few other's had some success disabling Spread Spectrum in the bios as well. I would take a look at http://www.asusforums.org as well in the AMD section.
