TWINX20483200C2 one stick bad?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday morning I went to fire up the computer and I could hear the floppy drive trying to fire up repeatedly. I wasn't getting a POST screen, just the following:

"Bootblock Compatible Version VER .010

bad BIOS checksum"

and it would continuously run both the floppy and CD ROM looking for a BIOS file.

I then read a couple of suggestions to pull one stick while leaving the other stick in bank B1 and try rebooting . The computer fired up fine, then i tried the other stick and it came up with the same error message and asking for the BIOS file again. Anyone else had this problem????


One other question:

In my XP Home 32 bit OS I m only showing one core running in the Task Manager "Performance" Tab, in the device manager it shows both cores, when I boot to XP 64 bit it shows both cores in both places. Any Ideas?

Thanks, Paul

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard and then load optimized defaults and set the Memory Voltage to 2.75 volts and if one of the modules is still failing, then lets get them replaced. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part! Or “Tech Support Express” and we will be happy to replace them or it, please note that you are posting from the forum!
