MSI P45 Platinum and XP Pro32 - memory configuartion


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am new to this forum and am hopeful it will be helpful.


My new system runs into the Stop 0x0000007B error upon loading XP Pro32, a minute or two after being prompted for additional device drivers (my JMicron RAID floppy). Not sure if it is memory related or not, but thought that it might be that I have 2 separate 2GB DDR2-800 modules and XP may not be able to support this much memory. Could you help me understand if this is true and what the limitations are?


Thanks for your help.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, and test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org to be sure one is not failing. 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.
