Constant crashing


Camaroz28c

Recommended Posts

hello, I have 2GB of CMX1024-3200PT. Whenever I attempt to transcode a movie with Nero 6 or play a video game my computer will restart out of the blue. I have uploaded one of the last dump files. I then tried each stick separately to no avail. I ran memtest86+ all night long and it had a few hundred errors all in test #7 but I have no idea what that means. I also read in this forum about someone else having the same error with the same motherboard and it may be because this ram requires 2.75volts and this mother board defaults at 2.5. It has the option to step it up 6% but that only brings it to 2.67. I do not see any way to bring it up to 2.75. I also noticed that the BIOS has it at CAS 2.5 when I believe it should be at 3 although I may be wrong. When I change it to 3, it wont POST and I have to clear the CMOS to get back to defaults. Please help, the only reason I bought this RAM is because I checked on the Corsair website and it was one of the types of RAM that came up as being compatible with my motherboard. Thanks!

Well, I was just thinking, my BIL has the exact same motherboard as I do (we built our computers at the same time). Won't I run into the same problem with the voltage? Second, why does the RAM finder on the corsair site say that this ram is compatible with my motherboard if it does not in fact meet the voltage requirements? Thanks for your help RAM GUY.

Yeah, I can try them but it is going to be a couple weeks before I am in his part of the state again. In the meantime, I am pulling my hair out with this constant crashing. Whats more is that it isn't even leaving minidumps on these restarts so I can't even look at those for reference.

Well, I haven't been able to test them in another system yet but I did try running the program that keeps crashing in XP and Vista and using Nero 6 and 7 to rule out any software issues. No go. Then I replaced the PSU with a brand new one I had sitting around. Same result, constant crashing when encoding. It did pop off a minidump though which I will post here. It is saying memory corruption. I am at my wits end.
