    Question Memtest86+ failed on EP45-DS3R with 2x2 Mushkins. Any idea?

    Hi, I finally built my new system, forgot to run memtest and before it install xp and vista (both 32 bit) without a problem. After installations I ran memtest86+ v2.01 and after an hour or so it gives errors. Btw the only thing I changed in bios is my ddr2's voltages.(2.04V) SPD values were right (5-5-5-15) Any idea about what can be done before accusing my ram modules?

    if found error then run 1 stick at a time ... maybe can eliminate problem that way

    I read some posts regarding increasing the mch voltage when using more than 2gb ram. Should I?

    if MCH 1.100 .. up to 1.200 .. you do need to post full setting .. also some of auto option give too much voltage

    Try this >>>

    And yes, you should test each stick one by one at stock set main timing, set voltage, performance Enhance on Standard and memory multi set to = Ram speed.

    ok I'm trying these settings with one stick. Should I use them in their respective (1st and 3rd)dimms or both sticks at 1'st dimm slot? I'm using memtest with defaults right? Just booting up from the cd and let it alone?

    Those are two stick setting. To test with one stick just set MAIN timings, Ram voltage, Performance Enhance to Standard, and Memory multi if you want (Can be left on auto if 1066 shows as ram speed on the right. Everything else auto for single stick tests

    Ya, use slot one, test each stick for about 10 passes at normal test processes

    oh! I started it already with one stick! Should I restart it? no errors for the first pass at least. You mean all tests be done 10 passes? It'll take plenty of time I guess?

    Ya, I would restart it. Those settings are too lose and you really want to test each stick like I noted above to be sure neither are faulty before you start trying to get them running

    Yes, 10 passes of the full test for each stick would be best. Just let it run, no need to select anything I mean
