Messed up sound when memory added


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased 2-1 Gb Corsair xms2 6400 sticks(5-5-5-12) to drop in next to my 2-1Gb XLR8 6400 sticks. When I install them, it screws up the sound in many programs, Most namely, Doom 3 and PowerDVD. Has anyone had this issue before? I pull them out, and everythings fine. Help!!!


AMD X2 5200+ Windsor chip

Gigabyte GA-M59-S5 Mobo

H.I.S. ATI x1950 G.C. 256mb

Modular 630w P.S.

S.B. Audigy S.C.

WD 320Gb SATA H.D.

With just our modules installed Please make sure that you have the latest Bios version and then load setup/optimized defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.0 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with http://www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! 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. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
