Errors in memtest86 3.5a

Recommended Posts

usually there is a form you can get off their website and then e-mail them to you, then they'll give you an address to ship them to.

EDIT!!!

Okay so I've tested one DIMM for 4 hours (see attachment 1) and it didn't have any errors after 13 passes, the other DIMM however fails in test 6 (see attachment 2)... I can't believe I can't RMA it... sigh

PS. Why does memtest86 3.5a lock up when u get errors? u can't hit ESC or anything, only solution is to hit the power switch :S

doubt its the slot, but it is possible.

 

 

try both sticks with the following settings

 

1066 5-5-5-18-54 (tRFC)

I don't understand this part

 

He means buy the same memory which is not defective and swop it with your broken ram so the shop takes the broken ram back.

Its called deception, its not nice to do that.

I didn't buy them at local retailer, I bought them online at www.proshop.dk

 

gonna try those settings now though, but what's the 54? I understand 5-5-5-18... but what is 54?

 

oh found it now (tRFC = Row Refresh Cycle Time) but I can only put 50 or 55... what to go with?

 

meanwhile... I tested 1066MHz at 5-5-5-18 and tRFC on auto.. got errors already at test 4 o.O (at 2.0V ofc)

 

oh btw, I didn't test both sticks, only the faulty one
