  1. Hi Guys

    I bought some Geil Ultra DDR2 2.0GB PC6400 Dual Channel memory kit (2 x 1GB) 800MHz (4-4-4-12) +Aluminium heat spreader a while ago for my computer build

    troubles are:

    1) When i booot nothing comes on the screen and then i have to boot it up again this then works and the screen comes on. I have tried moving the memory and all seems fine.

    2) As from user reviews on the product the memory is meant to run at 4-4-4-12 but is actually running at 5-5-5-23 how do i fix this to get the correct timings?

    I have 3GB of the same memory, here is the link http://www.microdirect.co.uk/productInfo.aspx?ProductID=14777&AddReview=0#ShowReview

    Thanks for your help

    Well it used to work fine untill i put some more memory in so what is the problem do you think? I know the memory is not faulty as i have tested them and they work fine.
