Hi Everyone, this is my first post here, mostly due to my ram conundrum.
This is my problem. I have a new motherboard which supports dual channel RAM, a while ago I bought 2 twinmos dual channel kits from a reputable dealer, giving a total of 2 GB ram (I'm all about excess) in my old motherboard, It worked fine.
So I transfer it all across and everything goes smoothly, until I play something which requires a bit of Juice, like Civ4, UFO aftershock, Oblivion, or NWN2, in which I get random crashes.
So I test the ram using windiag. Lo and behold I get a whole bunch of errors, about 100.
I remove all sticks, test them one at a time in the same slot, no errors.
I check each slot with sone stick, no errors.
I check each pair in dual channel, no errors.
I check 2 'unpaired' sticks in the same bank of slots, ie non dual channel, no errors.
I put all four back in, 100 or so errors.
So right now I'm wondering if I need to buy 2 or 4 more sticks of ram. Heh.
P4 3GHz socket 478 in Albatron PX865PEC Pro
Radeon 9800 Pro, 256 MB ram.
cant think of anything else that is pertinant.
