Bad Ram on DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D

Recommended Posts

OK I Have A DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D motherboard and DDR2 2X DDR2 200 1GB Kingsinton Ram i recently brought these from a friend and he did warn me that the ram had a few errors and he said that you can fix it by changing certian configurations settings.

i haven't got them written down but can you really do this?

he said that i can if i want get a them replaced under warrenty, is this a good option or alternitive?

and if you are able to configure it and if you can how?

if you need error numbers or somthing similar just ask and i'll give as many as i can.

thanks for the help.

Hello,

 

If the memory is faulty then there is nothing that can be done to cure this, so your only option would be to have it replaced under warranty.

 

The BIOS allows you to change all the memory timings, go to the Genie Settings section >DRAM configuration.

Could you give me some instuction on how too change the timings?

1st of all like said above the Ultra D used DDR(or DDR1 nor DDR2) it physically wont fit in the mobo. But you can change timings in bios. Read the overclocking guide for advise on mem timings

You need to enter the BIOS and look for the following section,

GENIE BIOS Setting

>DRAM Configuration..................Press Enter = New Menu

FSB BUS Frequency....................200

LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio..............X 5.0

LDT BUS Transfer Width...............16 16

CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio..............AUTO

PCI eXpress Frequency................100Mhz

K8 Cool 'n' Quiet Support............Disable

Cool 'n' Quiet MAX FID...............AUTO

CPU VID StartUp Value................StartUp

 

CPU VID Control......................AUTO

CPU VID Special Control..............AUTO

LDT Voltage Control..................1.20 V

Chip Set Voltage Control.............1.50 V

DRAM Voltage Control.................2.70 V

 

Run MemTest86+.......................Enabled, disable later

GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration

DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ).............200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01)

Command per clock (CPC)..............Disabled

Cas latency (tCL)....................3

RAS to CAS delay (tRCD)..............3

Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........8

Row precharge time (tRP).............3

Row cycle time (tRC).................11

Row refresh cycle time(tRFC).........14

Row to Row delay (tRRD)..............2

Write recovery time (tWR)............3

Write to read delay (tWTR)...........AUTO

Read to write delay (tRWT)...........AUTO

Refresh period (tREF)................AUTO

Write CAS latency (tWCL).............1, May not be in your BIOS

DRAM Bank Interleave.................Enabled

 

DQS Skew Control.....................AUTO

DQS Skew Value.......................0

DRAM Drive Strength..................Level 8

DRAM Data Drive Strength.............Level 3

Max Async Latency....................6ns

Dram Response........................Normal

Read Preamble Time...................5ns

Idle Cycle Limit.....................AUTO

Dynamic Counter......................AUTO

R/W Queue Bypass.....................AUTO

Bypass Max...........................AUTO

32 Byte Granularity..................AUTO

 

Make sure the memory modules are in the orange slots.

 

You must have all 4 power connectors plugged into the board.

- 24pin ATX connector

- +12v P4 connector

- Molex on top the chipset fan

- Small molex under the CPU socket

 

Let memtest run for at least 4 hours.

If you get errors instantly stop and try 1 stick at a time.

 

If you still get errors the modules may be faulty.

"OK I Have A DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D motherboard and DDR2 2X DDR2 200 1GB Kingsinton Ram" and

 

"if you need error numbers or somthing similar just ask and i'll give as many as i can."

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 

very confusing statements....if the ram is DDR2, there is no way you would be able to get any error codes, if you forced the ram into the slots, then you prolly will experience some kind of electrical spark display, or, at the very least, lots of smoke, the little notch for alignment is slightly off between the two types of mems, on purpose.....

 

as far as exchanging goes, if the ram has a lifetime warranty and they don't require a receipt, you should be able to exchange, although, Kingston would be exchanging it for the same type of mems, no help to your situation presently....

 

maybe your friend can refund your hard earned and try and exchange his supposedly DEFECTIVE mems that you bought from him (?????, LOL)...still chewing on why you bought the ram in view of the errors disclosed by the seller....

okay, then....

 

still have this burning question, why did you buy the ram given the seller told you about the errors, and as far as exchanging goes, if it was so easy, WHY didn't HE do it???? LOL

 

timings are changed by entering the bios, then manually changing the values....usually del will get you in at boot, then you have to carefully investigate the bios and enter the values you want to try. it will prolly drive you nuts, lots of reboots and testing...do your investigation properly with some detailed search time, values (settings) may even be contained somewhere here @DIY if you just look....

 

laterzzz....
