Recommended Posts

Specs:

 

Asus M2N32-SLI DELUXE

AMD 4600 X2

Corsair XMS2 TwinX1024-6400c4 (4 4 4 12 2)

EVGA 7900GT KO

NEC 16x DVDr/w

550watt Sunbeam Tech PSU

 

I have ran the ram thru memtest for about 5 hours no errors if I need to run it longer please let me know.

 

Problem:

 

I recieve these errors (Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal or Bad_pool_header) of course with the BSOD. I have racked my brain trying to figure it out. as a Test I uninstalled the ASUS wifi drivers, because my problems started after the install and everything is running solid. However I contacted Asus with the same information I am providing you, and they tell me it is a memory problem. So I am here seeking Assistance from the all Knowing RAM GUY!

 

If you need more information I would be happy to get it also.

What is the complete system configuration and what is the make and model of your PSU. And if you have any PCI cards installed I would remove them and see if the errors go away. In addition, where durring the install did you start to get this message?

The errors start everytime I install the wifi drivers if I unistall them the machine runs rock solid. Which is why I thought it was odd Asus would say it was a RAM issue.

Bios is up to date with what Asus has out.

 

The weekend is fastly approaching I will run those tests this weekend and will let you know what I find on Monday.

Well I ran the memtest on each stick in each socket with no errors. But as soon as I get into windows I get random BSOD still.

 

Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

 

I have removed the MOBO from the case and booted up while it sat on a phone book to check for grounding issues. Still getting the BSOD.

 

Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

 

I have RMA'd the Board going to give it a 2nd shot.

 

Asus is insisting its the ram not the board, bios, drivers. Is there a diffrent set of dimms I should buy, or more recommened I could try out on this board?

 

Currently using

 

TWIN2X1024-6400C4

I want to try to up the voltage on my memory but scared I will void my warranty. Currently I am running at 2.1 but this asus thread is saying the board is having issues with providing the voltage you have selected.

If I bump the voltage up on my ram from 2.1 to 2.2 to see if it stablizes, should I worry about frying my sticks?

What Bios version do you have installed? And I would try these settings after you load setup defaults.

CPU Freq: 200 MHz

Memory Frequency: 100%/DDR400

Dim Voltage to 2.1 Volts

Resulting Frequency: 667/333Mhz

Legacy USB: Disabled

SDRAM CAS Latency: 4T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 4T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 12T

Command Rate: 2T/Auto

Legacy USB: Disabled

All other settings at Bios default or Auto

I did as you requested still having problems. I am going to send this board abck to newegg later this week. Once again I uninstalled teh wifi and everythign is running smooth. Maybe its just a bad board I will find out in about a week.

 

 

Thanks for your help. I will be back if the new one gives me errors. Slowly I will narrow the problem down.

Yeah I have talked to Asus they are of no help and this will be the last board I buy from them.

 

However the machine crashed again with the wifi installed last night. Using a Diffrent Video card now also so I know its not that either. So I am starting to think its the ram. I think I will just buy some diffrent dimms than the ones I currently have.

 

I am going to try and set it up at 667mhz as you suggested in a previous post but my patience is running thin.
