Matched pair module failure

Recommended Posts

My system is failing to boot when one module of a matched pair is installed. It's an XMS3200 1024MB 400MHz module from your platinum series. The system will boot with the other module installed by itself but will not if this faulty module is installed by itself or with the working one and I am therefore unable to run memtest on it. I've tried usual procedures of clearin cmos and loading default settings on bios to no avail. The modules were only purchased last month and have been in no other systems.

I'd be grateful for any advice.

It's an MSI K8N Diamond Plus SKT939 motherboard with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ socket 939 Dual Core 2.2Ghz 1Mb and 1Mb Cache processor


Memory is Corsair 2GB DDR400 XMS3200 Platinum Kit. Match Memory Pair With Silver Heat Spreader

Part number CMX1024-3200PT

Lot number: 0611136-2

XMS number XMS3200 v5.1


As mentioned earlier it now fails to bot with the aforementioned module, and this is supported by the post diagnostic board provided by the motherboard which indicates a memory issue as the failure.
