errors and lock ups

Recommended Posts

i recently purchaced "CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4 - Retail" from newegg.com


after i assembled the system and got everything up and running, i began gaming. after a few minuets of gaming (NFS:MW, NFS:Carbon, F.E.A.R.) the system would lock up after a couple of minuets.

i reset everything on the board (ram, chip, vid card) to make sure everything was seated properly. I still had the same issues.


i ran the memtest program, and received over 150 errors.


please help me with getting my new system back up and running properly

Please Change ‘Write to Precharge delay’ in the BIOS (same page as for latencies) from default 10 to 15 and then test the modules again with the Voltage set to 2.0 Volts and the tested settings set manually! Then test with http://www.memtest.org to be sure! In addition, with this MB you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
