Catharsis Posted January 24, 2006 Share Posted January 24, 2006 a while back i posted my problem here and it was semi-resolved but now has popped back up so I am here to figure it out once and for all.. here is the same post i have made at the ABIT forums ***Hello everyone and thanks for your time in advance. Here is the issue. within the last 4 months i bought a new MOBO, CPU and HD abit av8 VIA k8t800p AMD athlon 4400+x2 CPU and a WD80gig SATA and from my old system i was using my corsair xms ddr 400 twinx1024-3200xl memory 512x2 MY current problem is that with BOTH memory modules installed i get random crashing (BSOD) in graphically intesne 3D games, it is not my video card as it never gets above 60 degrees or so in there. I'ts pretty much just q4 and COD right now windows keeps telling me it has recovered from aserios error and says its from the RAM. I have ran winmem for about an hour on each stick with no errors and it worked fine in my old board. NOW, last night i got the bright idea to check the manual and see if it wanted the memory installed in any specific way and no it does not, then i alternated slots. still crashed.. THEN i removed 1 moduel and tried it and i have had no crasshes or any type of problems for a good 5 or so hours of gaming. I have the memory setup in the BIOS to whatever the specs are(like auto set but i can't remember the name)RPD or SPD So to me it seems the motherboard doesn't like my memory setup but i need to know if i can make it work as i don't have the cash to get new memory right now and technically it SHOULD work fine.. so if anyone can help or if anyone needs more info I will be checking this quite frequently. Oh, i am also going to post a similar message in the corsair message boards Edit/Delete Message**** K, since then someone asked about my PSU, and it's an antec 2.0 480 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
