Hi,

i'm new on the forum,so...hello!

Then..the problem is about these pair of modules of memory..

The motherboard is sick..i have to admit..

Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L G31 DDR2 S775.

When i put the modules in dual channel, the system do not post.

When i put only ONE module..the system start but goes crazy in windows setup and in normal windows usage..(BSOD so frequent!!)

 

What can i do?

Where can i change settings for these ram into bios?

Which are the parameters?I can't find the correct link..

 

Tnx for helping me.

PS:bios version is the latest one.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and load setup defaults and then set the memory Voltage to 1.9 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.

I made a Memtest on first module for 10 hours and got no errors..In the afternoon i'll test the other one.

 

The settings that i have to change in the bios are only 5-5-5-18?

Beacuse the MB sets them for default..

 

I only manually increased the voltage for ddr2 of +0.1v (the motherboard seems to run @ 1.8v) but i've tried it yesterday and the system fail..no post..

 

any ideas?

 

Tnx

I am sorry but I do not understand your post???

You say in the beginning that you ran it for 10 Hours and had no problems but later say you increase the memory Voltage by .1 Volts and now it will not post?? Please be more specific.

Was this the same modules that ran for 10 hours or the other module?

eheh i'm sorry for my english :D

 

the steps i've made:

 

1)update MB bios to the latest version

2)add +0.1v to ddr2 ram voltage (now 1.9v total)

3)changed latency to 5-5-5-18

4)if i put togheter the modules on the MB,system DO NOT POST

5)Memtest for the first module (single channel) - PASSED

6)Memtest for the second one (single channel) - PASSED

 

any ideas?

Yes if the system will post and run properly with either one of the modules but will not post when both installed I would get the MB replaced. Did you test one module in every slot to make sure one of the slots is not failing?
