tonnilerche Posted December 12, 2005 Share Posted December 12, 2005 Hi there. Sitting with a 1gb kit 2 x CMX512-3200XLPRO 2225 XMS3208v1.1 Problems: dual channel: regular winXP boot goes blank screen before i even see it booting. if i select fail-safe mode boot says "system"-file missing. if i try booting from cdrom: when it loades the different controllers in, i got a blue screen with some weird signs on it - ( not usual signs.. weird signs.. NOT GOOD ). if i try caldera dos ( from a floppy - uses it for bios flashing ), it stops when it has loaded half of it. Single channel - stick #1: regular winXP boot starts.. it is working it's way up, preparing to show me the login screen *BAM - reboot*. fail-safe works.. half'n'half though. if i try running superpi it crashes right away. same errors as with cdrom from the dual channel part. same errors as with caldera dos from the dual channel part. Single channel - stick #2: NO problems at all.. ( sitting and writing this post with it in my pc ). Things i have tried to help the problem. Loosing the ram-timings ( tried down to 3.0-4-4-8 2T ). Giving the module a bit more of voltage ( up to 2.8 ) - and i got good airflow ( im a oc'er ). Tried the malfunctioning stick in 2 other machines - not precisely the same errors, but the stick is definitely malfunctioning. My primary test-pc: asrock dual-sata2 - ( tried a bunch of bios'es ) x800xl 256mb PCI-e 2 x Western Digital ATA 120gb SB live 1024 Chill Innovation 510A atx 1.3. Other pc'es tried: Asus nforce2 something barton 2500+ 80gb IBM hdd. Codegen 350w psu. Matsonic socket A board. Palmino 1800+ 40gb IBM hdd Chieftec 360w psu. *** I've had the memory for quite some time - it worked perfectly in a Abit IC7 and in a Epox 8rda+. What should i do ? I believe i have tried everything to make the stick work. Greetings - Tonni Lerche Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
