erendrake Posted January 7, 2006 Share Posted January 7, 2006 I have had my TWIN2X1024-5400C4 for about a year now and it has been great RAM but suddenly when I turned on my computer one day my BIOS says that the RAM had given a SPD error. Instead of setting the SPD at 4-4-4-12 that the RAM is rated for it set it at 4-5-5-15. I didn’t think it was a problem because a looser set of timings shouldn’t give me any problems, but when I boot into Windows I get about 15-25 seconds of Windows use then the computer does a hard reset and that just loops over and over again. I tried changing the setting on the RAM to the rated settings and that didn’t fix the problem. I have since replaced the motherboard, processor, hard drive, power supply, video card, CD-ROM drive, and all of the cabling. All of the different configurations report the same 27000-36000 errors in the gig of RAM I have on stage 3 or 4 of the +86 memory test that I have booting from a CD that I have redownloaded and burned twice. I don’t have any replacement sticks of DDR 2 memory so that is why I went to such lengths when I was reasonably sure it was a memory failure from the start. If there is anything you would like me to try I will but I have pretty much exhausted any ideas of further isolation of the problem.
