twin2x2048-5400c4pt doesn´t work

Hi, my first post so excuse eventual beginner faults!

Just got new twin2x2048-5400c4pt and after installing them together with older twin2x1024-5400c4 the computer gets alot of shell32.dll faults. The computer works fine with only the old memorys? But together with the new ones or only the new ones I get the same problems.

Is these memorys compatible with my motherboard ASUS M2N-SLI DeLux?

I have reinstalled Windows xp sp2 and the problem remains

The momory is recognised as being 3072 Mb

The two pairs (old+new) have tryed both memsockets

 

Still I got a lot of problems with Internet Explorer and my Outlook Express. Also after getting Mozilla Firefox the same problem remains.:[pouts:

And please load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.0 VVolts and set the tested settings for the memory Cas 4-4-4-12 at 2t Command Rate manually and set the TRC to 24 if it's listed and I would set the NB/MCH Voltage to +.05 Volts as well. . Then please run http://www.memtest.org on them, and you have to put them so they are not mixed IE the two 512 Meg modules in slots 1-3 and the two 1.0 Gig modules in slots 2-4. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

If you still have problems please test the modules one at a time and lets make sure one is not failing.

I can add that my friend bought the same memorys and uses the same old mems, and that works fine without resetting any voltages. The difference is that he uses MB without SLI!? We built these computers ourselves so other specs is the same on both.

 

Thanks for the reply. I will let you know the results.

well this is ram, they vary in production enough (so do mobos) that just cause two mixed sets worked before on x board dont mean they will now. Life is like that-rarely is it logical.:):

 

The only sensible approach really is to test the UNKNOWN condition sticks (IE the new one). IF they pass, then next step they dont then well.....rma time.

No faults recorded by memtest! But CAS is found to be 5 5 5 15 on both old and new mem`s? We cant find any location in Bios that change the setting? The retailers lists both mems at 4 4 4 4 12. Shouldnt setup recognize that setting?

Here´s the result. The mems didnt show any faults in memtest after 8 hours testing each. I didnt test them together! But the store replaced them to exactly the same. I set them to the same as the old ones in Bios and there hasnt been a problem since. (3weeks):laughing:
