Lots of error on ASUS board while testing with Memtest86+ v1.7

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I currently got a ASUS P5LD2 deluxe with 3 X 512mb ram (2XPNY, 1XOEM). Just found out about a RAM testing software called Memtest86+ v1.7, and i run it. I encounter alot of error in test 7.

Test 6,7,8 have 4,111,4 error respectively. While the rest of the test had no error. Is it my RAM which is causing the error or the motherboard? I am really confused as some people reported that ASUS motherboard shows alot of error. I just want to make sure it is not my RAM which is faulty.

yes, that means unstable ram...either put the ram on a divider, loosen the timings, or raise the voltage to fix the problem.

Test 6 [Moving inversions, 32 bit pat]
This is a variation of the moving inversions algorithm that shifts the data pattern left one bit for each successive address. The starting bit position is shifted left for each pass. To use all possible data patterns 32 passes are required. This test is quite effective at detecting data sensitive errors but the execution time is long.

Test 7 [Random number sequence]
This test writes a series of random numbers into memory. By resetting the seed for the random number the same sequence of number can be created for a reference. The initial pattern is checked and then complemented and checked again on the next pass. However, unlike the moving inversions test writing and checking can only be done in the forward direction.

Test 8 [Modulo 20, ones&zeros]
Using the Modulo-X algorithm should uncover errors that are not detected by moving inversions due to cache and buffering interference with the the algorithm. As with test one only ones and zeros are used for data patterns.

could u explain in layman terms wat u mean be divider, loosen the timing or raise the voltaage?
