Strange memory related problem.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok I got my 2nd gig of G Skill yesterday and after I popped it in it said my OS was corrupt... Meh so I ram memtest and got like 13000 errors. No prob ram is bad just RMA back to newegg. Well after I took it out I am having a weird boot issue. When I post and the bios checks for the IDE channels it takes like 30 seconds to find my DVD burner now. It used to take like 1/2 sec. Anyone experienced this or know what I can do? Everything else worked fine after I removed the bad ram.

I'd suggest that you check your bios and ensure that the memory timings arnt too tight and that you have the correct RAM selected. I'd put all the memory on auto for starters.

Also within the bios you can enable drives etc. try disabling the problem device and restart. If it goes away then your CD may be knackered.

Failing that when you are in windows go to the device page and remove it from the system - restart and let windows reconfiger the drive.

Finally, i'd request a scandisk on the hard drive as your memory could have corrupted a fragment on your hard disks.

Failing all that try resetting the cmos....

I would Reset your c-mos and go for a safer more stable OC and also maybe flash your bios to the latest version.

Well the memory is correct because it is just a second chip to the one I already have. I can't see how a bad stick of ram would make my burner go bad. I may try and reflash the bios even though I have the newest one as it may have partially corrupted it. I have no problem with the drive in windows though.
