Computer keeps shutting off


Recommended Posts

I've added a Corsair CMX512 - 2700LLPT to my computer. I have one already, at the same numbers, so I was doubling my RAM to 1024. So I turn on my computer after installing my new RAM and after a few minutes, I get a weird blue page that says something odd as to what is happing, as to why its shutting down and stays on for a few seconds, then my computer shuts down. Any help here?

You have two different versions of the memory. One will run lower timings than the other. You will manually need to set the timings to: SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T If you continue to have problems, please let me know. Thanks!

If I were you, I would do the following before attempting to fiddle with memory timing parameters: 1) Read your motherboard's manual on BIOS settings. If you don't have the manual, go to the vendor's web site and download the PDF. Read what it says about memory timing parameters. 2) Do some reading on the internet about memory timing parameters. There are LOTS of things to read, and don't expect to get it all right away, because I've never found a single guide which explains it all in one place. Corsair's web site has a really nice Flash tutorial which you can watch. At one point, it explains EXACTLY what timings like 2-3-3-6-1T refer to. When you get to that point, I suggest pausing the presentation and jotting it down. One link I particularly like about the EFFECT of timing parameters is this: [URL=http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/memory/memory_timings/]http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/memory/memory_timings/[/URL] 3) Download a spec sheet on a RAM chip and read it. It doesn't matter which one, because you want to learn general concepts. The PDF you find may not apply to YOUR RAMs, and some BIOS settings you need to fiddle with are not going to be specified in the PDF. I have known Corsair to use Micron silicon (I had some Value Select with SpecTek chips which are Micron silicon), so here's a link I picked slightly at random for you to read: [URL=http://download.micron.com/pdf/datasheets/dram/ddr/512MBDDRx4x8x16.pdf]http://download.micron.com/pdf/datasheets/dram/ddr/512MBDDRx4x8x16.pdf[/URL]

atmosphere2099- The timings for memory are located under Advanced Chipset Features in BIOS. You will need to change Memory Timings to "Expert" to set them manually. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks!

OK I tried and changed the settings to these and also tried to uppen the voltage but I still get the blue screen of death. Though it does seem like after setting to these new settings I get further in progress but still the BSOD hits me. SDRAM CAS Latency: 2T SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 2T SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 6T
