akypoon Posted October 20, 2006 Share Posted October 20, 2006 Hello, Recently I received replacement RAM from Corsair. The RAM model is TWINX 1024-3200 C2 (DDR400 dual channel kit, 512MB x 2, rev.4.1), my motherboard is Asus A8N-E (with BIOS 1013) and my CPU is AMD Athlon64 3200+. I am using Windows 2000 SP4. The system is not overclocked. The RAM passes memtest86. I have been testing the replacement RAM for over a week. I noticed that my system has an extremely slow startup time (takes about 5 minutes minimum) during first bootup, but the problem will go away if I do a warm reboot (just restart inside windows). My normal startup time should be around 1 minute. I tried different BIOS configuration for the RAM, including auto detect timing/voltage, forced factory defaulted timing/voltage, recommended timing/voltage as suggested on Corsair's page and turned on BIO memory test. The problem persists, unfortunately. Has anyone experienced this before? Any help would be appreciated, thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
