VS512MB400 (2 sticks) problems.

Recommended Posts

My system was experiencing random crashing and rebooting. After a while, my Windows XP SP2 refused to boot. It gave me

BSODs I decided to run memtest86 Version 1.65. It failed 4 hours of testing,

resulting in excess of 900,000 errors.

 

I have no idea what caused this. I have never overclocked. Hence, the Asrock which I have read has limited overclocking capabilities. More than so, I would like to know what would cause something like this. I try to install Windows Xp Pro sp2, and I get BSOD's. I also tried Windows 98, still no luck(BSOD'S). Help is very much appriciated.

Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (High with ASROCK) and then set the timings manually to "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.

I tried loading setup defaults.. Reloading bios w/ disk to no avail. I set the volts to high, and timings to auto, hence there is no "SPD". I already ran memtest86. One module doesn't post at all, no bios etc. One module gets into memtest and gets 8 errors after 2 hours. If I put both modules in I get 900,000 errors, failing every test. Thankyou for your quick response (:, and for trying to be of help.
