Boot Problem C5/C1 Error

Recommended Posts

This is the second time I have ran into the C1 error. The first time I fixed it (The voltage and timing were off). Now the problem has returned, it began with a C5 error then cleared the Bios and removed 2 sticks, it booted. Put the 2 sticks back in cleared the bios and C1 error.

 

Is the problem my motherboard or the Memory, works with 2 gigs but not 4?

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.

 

With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667 or DDR800 and set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

I know it been awhile but Im still having problems booting into windows. I did update the Bios, but now I get a blue screen at times or C1 error. I was able to borrow some memory from a friend and my computer now boots no problem. Would like to RMA The Memory Kit/ Fan.
