Bad Module


DWFloyd

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem I believe with memory. I have had several BSDs recently and downloaded Microsoft's Memroy test "MTINST". Created the boot floppy as per instructions and came accross mant failures. I pulled the second of the two CMX512-3200LLPT modules (It's a 1GB matched set) and sure enought I had "LRAND" and "WINVC" failures on multiple addresses on every pass. (I stipped at 6 passes). I swapped the memory sticks and did not have any errors on the other. It appears to me that there is a failed module. Can anyone please assist?

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS3200LL Cass 2-3-2-6 with the Ras to Cas set to "3" for example or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s 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.

Hey Ram Guy sorry for the long pause. The new DIMMS arrived while I was out of town. I noticed the replacements are slightly different (TWINX1024-3200XLPT). I put them in and recalled you recommended a 0.2v increase. I also found out that you can hit cntrl+F1 to unhide some additional settings which helped verify the SPD of the new DIMMS are set to what they call for on the package 2-2-2-5.

 

My machine is stable at +0.2v but is this causing any effect to any other part of the PC? Is is better for longevity and stability to run "normal"?
