hlygrail Posted November 11, 2005 Share Posted November 11, 2005 (This is new thread spawned off this one [http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=222533] where I was previously testing on a DFI Infinity motherboard.) I'm now using: Abit AN8 AMD A64 3500+ Seasonic S12-430 (430W, dual-12V rails) 2 HDD, DVD-RW Corsair TWINX1024-3200PT Ok, 12 hours of memtest turned up more errors in test #8, and I had additional problems loading and sustaining Windows XP Pro last night. I conclude that this memory is bad, or the CPU is somehow hosed. Only reason I even consider the CPU is the MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION BSOD+reboot loop I was in after loading the first half of WinXP. Backing down the memory to DDR333 got me through that, but it's still not stable. When I attempted to load the nForce4 chipset drivers, I IMMEDIATELY got a bluescreen. Second attempt worked with me not loading the IDE drivers, but after reboot, I get a lovely "PCI.SYS corrupted" screen and have to go to repair. I will try a WinXP+SP1 disc now, but after that I need to get this memory replaced. Ram Guy, is it faster to do it through you, or back through Newegg?
