Question about EliteGroup ECS PT800CE-A Socket478/PT800CE/DDR400/A&L/ATX Motherboard (MOTEC13)
I bought this board new a couple of years ago. My main computer died so I thought I would use this board and build a new one.
At this point I have installed and configured the motherboard, installed the 3.4 HT CPU, installed a floppy drive, installed an FSP 700 Watt power supply, installed 2 Gig of Kingston DDR400 memory and installed an ATI Radeon 9600XT AGP video card.
I used Microsoft Memory Tester to check the memory. I seem to always get ERAND errors. I took 1 stick of memory out and tested the remaining 1 Gig stick. I still get ERAND memory errors. I took out the last stick of memory and replaced it with the first stick I took out. Ran the memory test again and found that I still get ERAND errors.
I then gave up on DDR400 and tried DDR333, also Kingston. I put 1 stick in (512MB) and ran the memory test again. I only let it run for 3 passes and no memory errors where reported. I then removed that stick of memory and put the 2nd stick in. I ran the memory test again for 3 passes and no errors were reported. Great, on to the next step.
I then placed both sticks of DDR333 memory in (1Gig total) and ran the memory test. I am now back at the ERAND errors. Strange that each stick passed 3 passes (11 tests per pass) each but produce ERAND errors when 2 sticks are placed in.
The DDR400 ERAND errors where reported for each pass done. It did not matter, 1 stick at time or 2 sticks together. The DDR333 stick passed 3 passes (11 tests per pass) each but produce ERAND errors when 2 are used together.
Does anyone have this motherboard running with DDR400 memory? If so can you please provide me the make and model number.
Thanks for any help,
I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.
