BSOD Boot with GA-H55M-S2h and CMX4GX3M2A1600C9

I have the intel core I3 installed as part of the setup. The system won't boot properly with the occasional MEMORY_MANAGEMENT message.

 

Can someone recommend a stable settings for this setup? and/or give suggestions of this problems?

 

I have used memtest with v4 to run and passed all the tests. The setup wasn't stable to begin with since it was randomly rebooting in vista sp2. However, it seems to have gotten worst and won't boot into windows at all.

Go ahead and try enabling XMP in the bios and see if it helps with stability if you havent done so yet. I would also recommend testing each module individually in the last slot furthest from the CPU.

Thanks for your reply.

 

I tested the memory stick individually right after the post and found that one of the stick failed every tests and every memory spaces. Very odd. Its a coaster. Well the other memory stick works just fine. I used memtest v4 on both sticks for a good day before this and there was no errors. I guess it never tested the bad stick.

 

I am going to see if I can return it to Frys tomorrow. I was able to run windows with no reboot so far with the good memory stick.

 

In the mean time, can you recommend a good stable configuration for the memory with my motherboard? Thank you. I have read that the dram voltage should be set to 1.64 and the dpi should be 1.15v? A full suggestions to all the right settings would be much appreciated.

Hi Mr. RamGuy,

 

So I went to Frys and exchanged for another set of memory, same module. However I tested it at home right now and the same thing happened. One Module is good while the other is not. Same as last time, one of the module failed all the test and all the bits. While the other module seem to pass all the test without errors.

 

Is it just another bad memory modules or my motherboard or some sort of compatibility issues?

 

I upgraded my motherboard to the latest bios too (F5). I am thinking it can't be my motherboard since one pass the test....what do you think?

  • 3 weeks later...

Ok. So my computer was running fine for two weeks and all of a sudden it crapped out yesterday. I ran a more thorough memory test on each card and of course one of them had errors. It was causing a continual reboot. The second set of memory seems to be find which I am using to run the computer now. The stick of ram had only a few errors versus my previous stick of RAM which had errors in every sector. I so long for my memory trouble to be over. Can I submit a RMA request?

According to that picture you are way over clocking the memory at over DDR4000 what are the exact BIOS settings you have set for both CPU and memory and with mixing two set I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR1333.

I thought on the last test I had bumped it down to 133mhz which is what it's showing in the picture? In any case, the only thing I changed in the bios is enabling and disabling the profile xmp. I didn't overclock anything else, I am not even sure how; so I don't event mess with it. I have read somewhere on this forum that it was ok to enable the xmp profile option, which is what i did and it worked fine for two weeks.

 

Also, I do not have 2 sets of memory sticks, sorry for the confusion. I met that I am running the second pair of memory stick with the xmp profile right now, while the other memory stick is b/o. The system seems to be running fine with one of the pair of memory stick with the xmp profile enabled.

 

I will try to run the test again with the b/o memory stick and xmp profile disable and post back....

I disabled the profile xmp feature which sets the memory freq to 133, with the xmp enabled; it was 1600mhz. I don't think I am overclocking anything, but I am not an expert. I have also went and did a load fail safe default of the bios before I ran the memory test. There are some sort of Standard/turbo/extreme mode settings in there which the "turbo" mode is the default under fail safe. I had also switched to "standard" mode and ran the test and still the same errors. The mode doesn't seem to change any frequency that I know of, so not sure what it does.

 

Here are the pictures:

Ok, so i opened it up again and examined the pins and processor under a direct flashlight for about 20 minutes and didn't notice anything being bent.

 

what I don't understand is if it's a bent pin/memory controller, why would it work with one stick of ram but not the other? Shouldn't it be across the board and not work with any stick of ram? Exactly what indicates that it's the memory controller? and why one memory stick works fine and the other does not? just confuse....:confused:

We are more than happy to replace the modules for you however normally failures in the higher tests indicate another issue.

 

Let's get them replaced, please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them. Be sure to check the box that says “I've already spoken to Technical Support and/or RAM Guy.”
