Pure Innovation...Broke? please help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My spec is

amd x2 4400
pure innovation mobo
gskill hz pc4000 (2gb)
x1800xt 512 gfx card
soundblaster x fi extreme
200gb maxtor hdd
hiper type r 580w

2 weekes ago.. i installed a slave hdd (IDE), i tried to format that drive, instead my computer crashed a bit way through it, so i took the slave drive back out and restarted.

the computer then locked up just before the first windows screen, after much thinking and experimenting, also resetting the cmos... i had to set my memory to 166mhz (ddr333) for the computer to load up.

i contacted the place i bought the memory from and they gave me an RMA number, the memory was replaced with some new gskill hz pc4000... ive just put the new same memory in and the problem remains.. windows wont load up unless the memory is set lower than 200mhz (DDR400)... either im unfortunate to have 2 sets of dodgy ram (although my first memory was working fine for 3weeks until i put the slave hdd in) or something else is totally borked in my computer.

ive contaced the shop and gskill again, but if anyone has any insight on here then please let me know.... im now worrying incase its the motherboard that is borked.

any help appreciated. thanks.

Have you checked the Vdimm and the timings on the RAM? Maybe it is defaulting to a voltage that is too low for the timings. Have you tried flashing to a new BIOS (If there is a new one)?

yeh checked all settings... changed them to all sorts... still nothing.

ive put the voltage up to 2.7v and still no change. no matter what i do... the computer doesnt load windows or restarts if i set the memory any faster than 166mhz.

i have the latest version of my bios too

This might be a stupid question, but have you tried reformatting?

Also, list your system specs in your sig by going to the User CP (at the top) and clicking on 'System Specs' on the left hand side.
