Problem with TWIN2X1024-5400C4

Recommended Posts

I recently bought the above ram (2 matched sticks of CM2X1042-5400C4) and it's causing problems with the sound in some games - not all - that I play. It causes a huge buzzing sound to occur instead of the game sound. The thing is, it only happens when the actual gameplay starts; menu sounds and intro sounds are fine. And some of my games are totally unaffected.

 

I have an Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe motherboard, and I have a feeling it may be the cause, though I don't know why :sigh!: The other problem is that I can't run memtest because for some unknown reason, the BIOS doesn't see anything on the disk when I boot it up. But that's for another day.

 

So have you heard of this problem before? Is it bad ram or my motherboard, or something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh I actually just got that card today and everything's fine; until today I had a 7600 and the memory problem has been happening since I put the new ram in, over a week ago now.

 

I forgot to say: I also suspect my sound card because it's about 6 1/2 years old now. Would the amount of RAM have any effect on the sound card?

Well it's not that the problem is intermittent, just that certain games always have the buzz, while others were never affected at all.

 

I forgot to put in my profile - I'm from Australia. I would like to replace them if it's possible. I can probably claim it through warranty with the business I bought it from, but a reference from you would be good. Many thanks.

This post is the reference, but just to be clear memory will not cause your system to BUzz, at least I have never seen bad memory cause that symptom.

That would power or driver related.
