TWINX1024-3200C2PT Computer Lock ups


Recommended Posts

have been plagued with full system lock ups for 3 weeks now, and they r driving me mad... It normally happens while playing UT2004, but sometimes happens during Star Wars Galaxies too.


Im unsure what ratios i should be using so im using defaults on the ram which is 3-3-3-8


I set a CPU load test going for 4 hours and not a crash, so i dont think its my cpu.... I normally get 2-3 locks ups per 4 hours... some days its more some its less. once it happens once it gets more & more frequent. Last night for example, i played SWG for 5 hours and not a problem i was well happy, but closed swg and loaded ut2004 ad within 5 mins i got a lock up, i restarted and reloaded ut2004 and within 15 mins i got another..... restarted again and played SWG 10 mins then locked :(


I have also tried reinstalling both the games in question


I tried to run memtest31 i think it was, it made the boot disk i put it in and it begin to load on restart, after a few secs screen went blue then restarted.... and keeps restarting until i remove the disk... i ahve tried various disks to no avail.


So afer testing the gfx card in another machine i know thats not the prob.... it only leaves the mobo and RAM, but i cant check the ram as the program wont work :(


My New System Spec is


Abit IS7-E2 Mobo

P4 3.2 ghz @ 3.267 Prescott Edition , Im using default bios setting for my cpu speed

TWINX1024-3200C2PT RAM

2 X 80 gig, Sata HDD Seagate Barracuda's

Radeon X800 XT

Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS Plat Pro

Dvd Rom

Dvd Writer

550w psu

Water cooling, from koolance for CPU only


Idle CPU Temp is 32c - Loaded is 39c

Idle Gfx Temp is 38c - Loaded is 46c

Idle PWM Temp is 45c - Loaded is 62c


PWM is power something on abit boards.


I dont think cooling is a prob either, as i hear the pwm is safe until 100c...



Any ideas would be great please !

I would suggest you test with http://www.memtest.org Version 1.26 or newer and then test the modules one at a time and set the Dim Voltage to 2.7 Volts and set the timings to Cass 2-3-3-6! If you get errors with both modules, please remove the Creative sound card and test the modules again to see if it might be an issue with that S/C. Or if one is failing then please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

If memtest86 found no problems or errors on the memory when testing two modules at the same time, then I will suggest you to look at other hardware/peripherals installed on your system. I do not think the problem is coming from the memory modules!
