Memory problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've OC'ed recently my CPU and my RAM and I was getting some errors like that in different games.


After settings my RAM's settings to default, I still get the errors. What should I do now?

ECC mode is disabled.

Put everything back to stock and run blend with Orthos, if it still fails then you probably have faulty RAM

As stated in the thread you linked, you should manually change the timings. Esp. the Trc should be set to 16. Apparently your motherboard is not doing this correctly automatically.

If problems still persist, put everything back to stock settings (FSB, RAM, Video). This error might have different causes. Also, what is the voltage the BIOS auto-selects? You have 2.0V RAM, and just maybe the BIOS is not giving the right voltage? You might want to set the voltage manually to 2.0V.

Also, you likely won't have *too* much headroom with this RAM, since it's DDR2 533. This speed is 1:1 with the CPU speed (FSB = 226 --> DDR2 speed = DDR2 533). When you increase the FSB, RAM frequency will go up also.

Thus, I would do the following:
- Everything back to stock settings
- Manually set RAM timings at 4-4-4-12-16 (CAS - RAS to CAS - RAS - Tras - Trc)
- Manually set the RAM voltage to 2.0V

If then errors still occur, it's time to run memtest86. Download this utility, create a bootable floppy or CD, put the utility on it, and boot from it. Let it run several cycles at least.

If you get errors, run the sticks separately to see which one is bad. If memtest passes, then we have to look at other issues.

Good luck
