Is my memory faulty?


Reiver

Recommended Posts

Hi, i've been having trouble with my memory. I've been suffering quite a few blue screen crashes (page fault in non paged area) and from searching on the net it suggested the problem was with my RAM. So i got memtest (the one that can be run in windows, not memtest86+) and it reported lots of errors. I fail superpi (not exact in round) and when i use prime95 the cpu test works ok but when i try the test that uses memory it fails. Before i RMA'd the RAM i tried memtest86+ to be 100% sure and it passed with no errors after running it for 6 hrs. Is my RAM faulty and memtest86+ isn't detecting it or is there another cause?

My RAM is Corsair (TWINX2048-3200C2PT) 2GB (2 x 1GB Matched Pair) DDR PC3200 2x128Mx64 non-ECC 2x184 DIMM unbuffered 2-3-3-6 64Mx8 DRAMs Matched Pair Silver Heat Spreader Lifetime Warranty

I tried them one at a time to see what made the difference. Updating the bios made none as did upping the voltage. However dropping back the command rate to 2t seems to have done the trick. I was able to run memtest (windows one) through 100% and super pi completed a 16m calculation.

You can look up your part# on AMD's site to be sure.

But we have no problem replacing your modules if you like, but I would make sure that you have the latest bios and try and load setup defaults and then set the timings to be sure its not a bios issue.
