2Gb DDR2 Twin2X Matched Pair issue


Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm new to the forums, in fact the only reason I'm here is because of this problem.


I have a Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 motherboard. I purchased 2GByte DDR2 Twin2X Matched Memory Pair, I put the memory in, then at first my PC was working normally but then I was getting the same effects I'd expect from a virus, after many failed attempts of trying to install windows, I changed back to my old ram and now the PC is working fine. My question is, What is doing this and how do I fix it? or am I doomed to be forever with 1Gb?


Below is a bunch of info written on the Paired Memory Sticks (both 1Gb individually)

XMS2 Xtreme performance DDR2 memory


2.10V ver 2.1

Please make sure that you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard and then load optimized defaults and set the Memory Voltage to 2.1 volts and then set the timings to 4-4-4-12 (CAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS) and then test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! Please allow memtest to run 2-3 passes on each module. If you still get errors, we will be happy to replace them! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
