Mobo memory issues using 2 DIMMs

  1. I am having memory paging issues when I use 2 DIMMs at 512MB each (AData 2.5V, 2.5 CAS Latency, DDR400 PC3200, both DIMMs are exact same). Using MemTest86+ is giving errors on 64 block moves. No problems with using only 1 DIMM at a time. Tested each one independently; Therefore, chips are good. Discovered this after all of my high-end games where crashing. Leads me to believe this is a BIOS issue. Just installed 50411s.rom for BIOS and still having problems. This is the latest flash posted on PCChips website. System is not overclocked, defaults only. I have downloaded all newest drivers for everything: AGP driver, graphics card and sound card. Also patched all games and updated Windows. Any suggestions please. Thank you, Shawn.

    PS-I know Mobo is cheapo.

    OS: Windows XP Pro SP2
    Mobo: PCChips M960GV v3.0A
    RAM: AData 1GB DDR400 PC3200
    CPU: P4 2.4GHz Prescott
    Video: Radeon ATI 9550 256MB DDR
