RAM chip is bad

I took my computer to Pennsylvania College of technology. They ran a diagnostic test on it today. They just called me back and identified the problem through the diagnostic test as the RAM chip number DDR2PC5400. My computer still is under warranty.

Refer to your warranty for contact info, and if memory is covered. If so, tell them you had a professional diagnostic done, and see if they'll send you another memory chip. If not, then you will need to get the chip specs, and replace the chip yourself.

Two components that must utilize the same front bus speed


Let's dissect the question

I feel it may help you understand better. Looks like a test. The purpose of a test is to see what you know.........

Bus,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bus_%28computing%29

Front Side Bus (FSB)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front-side_bus

Now you know what a BUS is, and a Front Side Bus.
Now let's apply that to a Motherboard Diagram, and see if that makes it clearer.......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

You see how the CPU (Processor), is connected to the Northbridge chip, (Of the motherboard chipset)

Data (Information) transfers back, and forth through the FSB, to the Northbridge chip.

Think of the FSB as an 'Information Highway'.

Now,.............what other component besides the CPU, has to operate at the same frequency rate ('Speed'), as the Front Side Bus?

Correct

The Northbridge chip

As you can see the Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer;
CPU (Processor), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics; plus Jennifer Aniston.

NO! You gonna' believe that? Just messing with you about the Jennifer Aniston thing!
(She is HIGH speed though! Whoa!)

HIGH-speed graphics being the AGP technology, and the PCI Express technology.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, OR using Integrated (OnBoard) graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer;

Anything connected to the;
A) PCI bus. (Like a PCI graphics card)

B) Integrated graphics. (Should be stated as OnBoard Graphics.
Easier to understand. ON the motherBOARD)

C) IDE (PATA) bus,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

D) SATA bus,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

E) USB bus
F) Ethernet
G) Audio (Sound)

Ram Memory TYPICALLY operates at half, of the Processor's FSB.
I say again -> TYPICALLY
Overclockers would like ram memory to operate at the same frequency rate ('Speed'), as the processor's FSB.

Problem is folks, the expansion slots are also dependent on the CPU's (Processor's) FSB

Mess with the CPU's FSB too much, and ram memory won't operate, and neither will the expansion slots.


Bear in mind Bud, that this is rapidly becoming old technology.
However, you have to know this technology, to be able to understand the Intel Core i technology.

This technology does NOT use a Front Side Bus,

Windows shuts down unexpectedly


This problem has been solved. There was intermittent contact inside the power switch on the front of the case causing the motherboard to issue a shut-down request to the operating system. Switch replaced and system is now stable.

I am getting memory read/write error. Try to reseat the ram.


If reseating the ram does not work, there may be an issue with the ram installed. Did you upgrade the ram yourself? You may have the wrong type of ram installed.
If you have the correct ram installed, then you should run diagnostics on the ram to be sure it is functioning correctly.
Download Dell diagnostics for your system from Dell at the following website:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
Click on the diagnostics tab and then choose "Download".
Reboot the computer and press the F12 key when the Dell screen appears. This will prompt the boot menu, use the arrow keys to select "Dell Diagnostics" and press enter. Press Tab until "Test System" is highlighted and press enter. This will run a set of diagnostics on your hardware to test all of it and determine what is functioning correctly and what is not.
If your RAM does not pass the tests, then you must replace the faulty ram. If your computer is still under warranty you should give Dell a call and have them do a service call on your computer. Telling them the results of the diagnostics test will very much speed up this process.
Best of luck!

RAM


I have no idea what test they ran or why you took the machine to them.
Was it having a problem?
Assuming that the RAM tested bad, you can easily replace it yourself. If you are not willing to do that then I suppose you'll have to have them do it or have someone else do it.
There is no way we can really answer your question, as we know nothing about the original problem or what tests were run.

Worked fine yesterday, today zilch !!


One computer I fixed had its internal power regulation confused. With the AC adapter plugged in, holding the power switch down for twelve seconds, then pressing it again, switched it back on. This sort of problem can come from a variety of causes, though. There is an internal power distribution chip which could have received a static electric shock or power surge and gotten cooked. The RAM could have gone bad. The socket where the adapter plugs into the computer could have been cracked loose. Check the power switch and then RAM first, and write more if that doesn't fix it.

There is a way of testing harddrives and RAM using the manufacturers diagnostic tools, you would have to go to the harddrive manufacturers website and download the utility then burn it to a CD.
You can also download a whole bunch of diagnostic tools and burn it to a CD using whats known as "The Ultimate Boot CD". There is plenty of help and instructions on the UBCD web site:
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
You will need a computer that has a CD burner installed and the ability to make a bootable CD, you will also have to change the setup of your friends computer so that it boots from the CD first and not the harddrive, by carrying out the diagnostic tests hopefully you can identify the faulty part easier and avoid buying something you don't need.
