Locking WinXP on BIOSTAR P4M80-M4 P4M800 478 MB with CMX512-3200C2

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a BioStar P4M80-M4 motherboard and placed my CMX512-3200C2 memory stick into it. The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.5Ghz


The installation of WinXP w/ SP2 and all updates completed w/o a problem. Then the other day I went to set up the machine at my father in law's house and it began to freeze shortly after booting.


The BIOS is set to default settings with no overclocking. I replaced the power supply and disconnected all peripherals with the exception of the CD-ROM to remove them from the equation. I then ran MemTest-86 from a CD. MemTest-86 worked overnight and showed that tests 3 & 4 failed at 0000395626c - 57.3M & 0000b3f6f94 -179.3M respectively.


After restarting MemTest-86 it ran for 9+ hrs and showed failures on tests 6 & 4 at the same two addresses 0000395626c - 57.3M & 0000b3f6f94 - 179.3M.


Any suggestions?

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and if your CPU is a 533 FSB CPU them you have to set the memory frequency at DDR333 and then set the memory Voltage to 2.75 Volts and set the tested settings for the modules manually to Cas 2-3-3-6 (CL,TRCD,TRP,TRAS)
