LarryL Posted November 20, 2005 Share Posted November 20, 2005 Hi guys, been racking my brain on this one. New system, ASUS K8N4-E Deluxe mobo with 3700+ and TWINX1024-3200C2. Memory installed in slots 1 and 2 from initial install with default bios memory settings and it worked perfectly for about a week then after a reboot it would not come back up again into the OS. Finally pulled everything apart switching out this and that, finally got the original players to come back to life during a rebuild. That lasted another week then a reboot and the OS won't load again. After finally getting help from ASUS (used to be a big fan, their tech support gets an F- from me in customer service) they tell me to take one stick of RAM to slot 3. All of a sudden I can boot again. The manual says I should be able to take a single side or double side ram and run from slot 1, 2, or 3; but only 3 is working. ASUS guy says 1 and 3 should be used for this mobo, but manual says 1 and 2. Anyway, neither are working right now. I have tried setting the memory timings to (2 and 2.5)-3-3-6 at 2.70, 2.75V and I can't get both sticks running. I can boot one stick in slot 3 and everything works like a champ. The other stick will boot windows but I start to get errors running apps (example - installing xp sp2 one stick will work but the other one keeps failing uncompressing the distribution). If I take the good stick to slot 1 - dies trying to boot the OS with a file/registry corruption error. I am not 100% convinced that it is not a combination of the memory and board, but since one works and one doesn't I do feel that one stick is not working. Ideas? :confused: FYI, running 1010 bios which is the latest Larry Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
