I am trying to move a 1GB TwinX kit from my old AMD rig to a new P4 Rig I am building.


Machine contains a ECX 661FX-M Micro ATX Board and a P4 3.0/800

Processor and RAM are boith set to Auto in BIOS ("by SPD" for RAM)


I put in both modules (mobo only has 2 slots) and a few minutes after booting, the machine crashed IE like 5 times and then blue screened all over my shoes.


I removed the module from slot #2 and booted back up with 512MB, and it worked fine for over an hour.

I swapped out the working module for the one I removed, and it started Crashing again and ultimately Blue screened again as well.


Is the second module faulty, or is this just an incompatibility with this crappy ECS board?


Thanks RAM Guy.

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and then test the module/modules 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.

I didnt force the voltage and timings, but after I posted that I went and got Memtest86+ and ran it against both modules individually.

The "good one" ran through 4 sweeps with no problem

The "bad one" had a screen full of red errors at less than 20% of pass 0


Do you still think I should manually set the timings and voltage and see if the "bad one" works, or is that pretty much proof right there?
