2x CM2X1024-5400C4PRO Memtest86 errors...


Recommended Posts

Hi! I have a recent build. I'm running a Intel D975XBX2 Bad Axe2 Motherboard, Intel E6700 2.66Ghz, Two sticks of CM2X1024-5400C4PRO, WD 500Gig SATA Drive and I'm also running WinXP Prof SP2.


Everything has been fine but after about an hour or two of the computer running it will restart and I will get a blue screen that flashes and goes away (can't read it...goes too fast). This got me thinking it was the memory. Memtest86 is showing errors around 161.4MB and 177.5 MB.


Could this be due to running the wrong timings? I've set the timing to 4-4-4-12 1.8v but my motherboard tries to default it to 5-5-5-15 1.84v. I've tried running the computer with both timings and still getting the random restarts. What should I do or test? Could it be a bad stick of RAM?

Set your timings to 4 - 4 - 4 - 12 and your Vdimm to 2.1V.


Please make sure that you have Legacy USB Disabled when you run http://www.memtest.org.






Regarding your Blue Screen restarting.


Click Start --> Control Panel --> System --> Advanced --> Startup and Recovery --> Settings --> Uncheck "Automatically Restart.

Now your system will halt at the Blue Screen and give you information regarding the error.


Write down the information. Reboot.

Click Start --> Run --> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Event Viewer

Look in the Application Events to see if there is an error corresponding with the time of the reboot.


Look in the System Events to see if there is an error corresponding with the time of the reboot.


If my advice (at the top) does not clear up this issue, please post the STOP event (Blue Screen) with all the information as well as any Application/System Events corresponding with the time of the Stop event.

I have set my timings to what you have said and still getting the restarts (although it seems more stable and restarting less)


This is the error:


***STOP: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF78BE770, 0xF78BE46C, 0xE23C99B0)


I ran a ScanDisk and all is clean.


I ran another Memtest and I'm now getting a couple of errors on Test# 5 around 833Megs and 849 Megs.


When the system reboots I can be doing various things, the past few times it has been while playing games (different games as well) it has also crashed once while loading Windows on startup.
