ABIT AV8 and TWINX2048-3200C2pt problems


Recommended Posts

I just tried installing a set of Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2pt I bought from newegg and when I installed it I got beeping from my computer and it shut down.

I removed all the old and new ram and tried getting the computer to boot with only the two new sticks of RAM and got beeping and a shutdown.

I installed one of the new RAM sticks and was able to boot to BIOS and tried setting the RAM timing. I was able to get the computer to start the boot sequence and almost made it into Windows when the computer shut itself off. I swapped to the other stick and all I got was a few beeps and a computer shutdown.


I tried moving the two sticks together to the other duel slots and that didn't work. Still got beeping and shutdown before the BIOS booted up. I tried clearing the BIOS to reset the computer and that didn't work.


I removed the new RAM and put my old RAM back in and now can't get my computer to boot up. It just beeps and shuts off.


My system:


ABIT AV8 Socket 939 Dual DDR 4 (w/newest Bios. I flashed it on 4/19/2006)

Athlon 64 3200 (939)

EVGA e-GeForce 6800 GS CO (DDR 3, 256MB, AGP 8x)

AG 480W 12v Intel P4 ATX Power Supply





My original ram is Corsair TWINX1024-3200PT(2x512) DDR 400

Numbers on each label says the following:

CMX512-3200PT XMS3202v5.1 0447061-7

xms3200 512MB 400MHz



The new RAM I got today has the following on the side of them:

CMX1024-3200C2PT XMS3202v1.2 0615115-1

XMS3200 1024MB 400MHz CL2


My computer was running fine but I was noticing some hesitation in some video games so wanted more RAM. Everything worked until I put in the new RAM and now I can't even boot it to the BIOS as it just beeps and shuts down. Is the new RAM not compatible, broke, or did my Motherboard just crap out? How do I get my computer back up using my old RAM?

First thing, you cannot mix memory with this MB, I would suggest you reset the bios with just one of the new modules and then see if it will post and let you into the bios then load setup/optimized defaults and set the memory Voltage to 2.75 Volts, and set the timings to the tested settings Cas 2-3-3-6 and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org.
