yesterday morning I buy TWIN2X4096-6400.

 

I have this RAM before ********, but this RAM was 2GB and I need 4GB of RAM , so I buy TWIN2X4096-6400.

 

so first I unplug all power cable from my case and then I reset or clear CMOS or BIOS and install new CORSAIR RAM and press ON button my system start working , but after seconds I hear RAM failure beep and my system can not boot , so I change DIMM but nothing happen and still my system dose not work , I test DIMM 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 , but nothing happen ,

but when I use one RAM , I see my system boot and I can use FreeBSD and WIndows VISTA ,

only my system work with 2GB of RAM and dose not work with 4GB of RAM

but I do not have this problem with ********, I put 1GB in DIMM1 AND 1GB in DIMM2 and work

 

with CORSAIR I must use only one DIMM and 2GB of RAM

 

I do not know what is problem

 

I update my bios last Friday and it is new bios

 

******** are DDR2 800

 

please help me

I solve this problem

I hear many thing about quality of RAM made by Corsair.

 

Please help me.:[pouts::[pouts:

insert just one ram module, then enter your bios and set the dram voltage to 2.1 volts. Also increase the nortbridge voltage with +/- 1.5 volt. Save and exit the bios.

 

Shutdown the pc and insert the second module, if succesfull post cpu-z screenshots of the memory and cpu tab.

and you did made the bios changes?

 

no right now I will test it tonight

 

but another question

when I use CPUZ

1- before change bios and only with one module ??

2-after change bios and use one modules ?

3- after change bios and use two modules ?

First you load up setup defaults in your bios, then save and exit the bios. restrat the pc and re-enter the bios, changing the dram and northbridge voltage as mentioned in the previous post.

Save and exit the bios and shutdown the pc.

Insert the second module and then if the system boots, you can run cpu-z

 

if the system does not boot with the 2 modules, you can use cpu-z on one module.

 

 

 

Just to clarify, cpu-z will only help to identify the type of modules you are using!

I see this on package of RAM

Twin2x4096-6400C4

 

but I see on each RAM this

 

Twin2x2048-6400C5

 

So I think my RAM is this

 

Twin2x2048-6400C5

 

 

Please take a photo of this and post it here. Also, please stop using the CODE markers, as you aren't posting code!

I clear bios and try set DRAM voltage to 2.1 , but I can not see this voltage and maximum voltage is 1.95 my bios is like this picture

I attach it

 

so I have to use one modules

 

and run computer and start use CPUZ

 

I see these pictures

 

I think my ram is

 

Twin2x2048-6400C5

Right,

Set your dram voltage to 1.95 volt insert one module and test that module with Memtest. Test it in channel A1 and B1. Once finished do the same test with the second module.

 

Disable usb legacy, before running memtest in the bios.

 

 

please post the results you get from memtest!

Can you please take a photo of the modules themselves with the sticker side facing?

 

I can not find good Camera for take photo and my Nokia 6230i do not take good photo

so I write for everything you I see on my ram I see this

 

cm2x2048-6400 c5             5-5-5-18
1.80v    ver3.1                              800mhz
2599211 08430040                        2048MB
                                                 xms2-6400

 

I wish this information can help us to solve problem

I will get photo.

The XMS2 family is Corsair’s mainstream line of performance DDR2 memory. DHX is the form factor that contains the memory. The casing if you like.

 

Download Memtest v2.11 from--->

and extract the ISO image. Burn the ISO image to an CD-ROM disk.

Download CPU-z from
.

 

Perform a hard reset to clear any BIOS stack corruption issues.

  1. Shut the system down
  2. Remove the power cord
  3. Remove the CMOS Battery
  4. Set the CMOS_CLR Jumper to On
  5. Press the power button for 10 seconds
  6. Let sit for 10 minutes
  7. Set the CMOS_CLR Jumper to Off
  8. Insert the CMOS Battery
  9. Insert the Power Cord
  10. Restart the system
  11. Enter the BIOS
  12. Load Default Settings
  13. Save Default Settings and Exit
  14. Restart the System and enter the BIOS

 

Enter your BIOS, Load Setup Defaults, Save Setup Defaults and set to these values:

Jumperfree Configuration

AI Tuning = Manual
CPU Frequency =  200 
CPU Voltage = Manual = Auto 
DDR Voltage Control = 1.9V
CPU Multiplier =  Auto
CPU-->Chipset HT Voltage = 1.2V
Chipset Core Voltage = 1.35V
Chipset Standby Core Voltage = Auto
Chipset PCI-e Voltage = Auto
Chipset VCore Offset Voltage = Disabled 

[b]Memory Configuration

Memory Clock Frequency = Manual
Memclock Value = 800Mhz
TCL = 5
TRCD = 5
TRP = 5
TRAS = 18
1T/2T Memory Timing = 2T

DRAM ECC Enable/Disable = Disable

AMD Cool 'n' Quiet Function =  Enabled

Advanced Chipset

CPU <--> MCP55 HT Speed =  5X
CPU <--> MCP55 HT Width = 16 X 16

Run Memtest for two full passes. When assured of stable DRAM, then enter Windows and Run CPU-z and post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.

I send two modules for warranty and they send me new RAM , one of the RAM has problem and they change it for me .

I Clear bios and set it as default and put two modules and I see my system start normally and in bios I see I have 4 GB of RAM and everything is OK , and I go to Windows XP and see it work good and I do not test it in Windows Vista.

I run CPUZ and everest I attach it for you

 

Please see it and check is everything OK and my RAMs work good with high performance or NO ???

 

Do I set my RAM Dual Channel ??

 

 

I ask this question because my mainboard has four DIMM for install RAM , two of them are Yellow and two of them are Black

I put two modules in Yellow Dimm , and I think CPUZ , show me they are Dual Channel .

 

How I can use all power of RAMs and use them with High performance ?

 

Thanks Guys again

 

it is good day for me because I join to Corsair group of RAM
