Question about Gigabyte Computers & Internet

New system won't work with memory in dual channel

System freezes at random places - won't finish boot-level diagnostics like memtest86. Works fine with both DIMMs in bank 1 and 2, but goes into failure behavior if memory is configured dual channel

    venkapatcha,
    Why do you believe it is the RAM? Why would the RAM work fine (20 passes of Memtest86+ no errors) in single channel but not in dual channel? I don't know what's wrong, but I'd think mobo before RAM. What am I missing?

RAM diagnostic tools/utilities

The following free utilities can test your system's RAM, which must be operating 100% all of the time or serious data corruption and/or system failures (that can be very difficult to track down) will occur. Note that they take a long time to go through their various tests. As long as you can boot the computer from a floppy disk or CD, if you copy the utilities to such a disk, you can run the diagnostic tests.

Three things could be it:

  1. failing disk drive

  3. virus
#1 Run manufactures diagnostic. Their web site will have the download

#2 Google MemTest86 and run

#3 Go to TrendMicro.com and scan for viruses.

STOP 0x0000008E errors are usually caused by memory hardware failures and more rarely by device driver issues, viruses, or hardware failures other than your RAM.

Ok what you might try is get a new hard drive and install windows on there and see what happens. Also if you are able to before you try a new hard drive you should do a system restore and restore it back to the day that windows was installed.

My Abit NF7-S v2.0 only works with one memory module at a time


I have read that there are dual memory controllers (duel channel) and that when you use 2GB like that you are using 1 memory controller for each stick. Maybe one of your memory controllers is bad... maybe popped a cap? Sounds like time for a new MB. See this thread...

Ram issue with compaq presario 5000 G1 Series


as you can see from the information below there are different requirements for RAM to work stable in your system . Most importand are the RAM VOLTAGE , SPEED , and Configuration of chips. you will need to consult the manual for qualified RAM requirements. Some RAM will work but not very stable. make sure the voltage supplied by your system is enough for the RAM. If you are running DDR RAM in dual channel mode, the ram needs to be the same size also. DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
  • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
  • DDR memory requires a 184-pin slot and 1.8 operating voltage.
  • DDR2 memory is not compatible with DDR1 memory and requires a 240-pin slot and 2.5 operating voltage.
  • Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM): Only use DDR type SDRAM memory if the computer came with DDR-SDRAM.
  • SO-DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
    • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
    • SO-DIMM memory requires a 200-pin slot.
    • DDR2 SO-DIMMs are not compatible with DDR1 DIMM and DDR2 DIMM memory modules.
    • With a computer running at a system bus of 533 MHz or 667 MHz, use a PC2-4200 (DDR2 DIMM 533) type.
    • The following requirements must be met for the DDR memory to function in dual channel mode:
      • Same density (256MB, 512MB, etc.)
      • Same DRAM chip technology (x8 or x16)
      • All either single-sided or dual-sided
      • Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels

Memory installation


bev,
all the DIM's must be of same type and same size to work, otherwise it creates problem, like no boot, boot with lowest memory etc.

There is no problem in your PC, its technical issue you can not use two ore more different type RAM at the same time in a motherborad.

Thanks
