memory problems


Recommended Posts

I have a pair Corsair XMS2 CM2X2048-6400C5 5-5-5-18 with a trc of 23 and a voltage of 1.9 Also clocked at 400 but was actually only running at 756 because of my cpu clock divider I think using an AMD 5000+ processor. The problem is at that setting I am experiencing frequent lockups I need help please.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 2.0 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.

Shut the system down and boot to the Memtest CD. Run Memtest for two full passes, then (If Stable), enter Windows and post screenshots of CPU-z's CPU, Memory and SPD tabs.
