Arlei Posted January 3, 2007 Share Posted January 3, 2007 Hi there, I live in Brazil. A friend of mine, who lives in United States, bought me the following memory modules: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2x2048-6400C4 As soon as I got the memory installed, my computer started to get random resets. :(: I tried several BIOS settings, without success. Then, I found the following thread: http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52351 (section “Testing parameters for Twinx/XMS2-6400C4). I then adjust the BIOS settings as per instructions, but no success. I still have random resets, especially when gaming. Then I decided to test the sticks using memtest86+ version 1.65. I made a bootable CD and tested the modules having the following results: 1st test (Two sticks, one in slot 1 and the other in slot 2) Result: Lots of errors in several tests 2nd test (Two sticks, one in slot 3 and the other in slot 4) Result: Lots of errors in several tests 3rd test (One stick (lets call this stick “stick A”) in slot 1) Result: Lots of errors in several tests 4th test (The other stick (lets call this stick “stick B”) in slot 1) Result: No errors (> than 20 passes) 5th test (Stick A in slot 3) Result: Lots of errors in several tests 6th test (Stick B in slot 3) Result: No errors (> than 20 passes) Then I started to use my machine with only the stick B installed. I have played Flight Simulator X, Far Cry, GTR2, Toca 3, BF 2142 for several days without any glitches. :sunglasse Yesterday I made the final test: I installed the stick A and load Flight Simulator X. I got a reset after 5 seconds of flying. :mad: My understanding is that the tests are conclusive. The stick A is faulty. Do you have any suggestion?
