    Im still getting game errors off and on, and sometimes reboots, but give me some time with it and Ill report back

    alright, heres a new batch

    anyone, no ideas?

    Ok, I also got memtest running on my memory and got the following results:

    I first ran with both memory slots in and got the following readouts

    Memtest-86 V3.2
    Pentium 4 (0.09) 2793MHz
    L1 Cache: 16 19529MB/s
    L2 Cache: 1024K 17133MB/s
    Memory: 1023M 1495MB/s

    It ran until 40% total testing done, and on 99% of Test #5 [Block Move, 64 moves] it ran to 10,000 errors, at which point I ended the test and ran each individual strip...

    The first strip was fine, the second on the other hand... got to the same spot as the first test on both strips, this time only suffering 389 errors before moving on to the rest of the tests. an example error point was 0001FD94008

    as a matter of point, both my strips are:

    PQI MD4412UOE 512MB DDR-400 PC3200

    then your memory is bad. remove it. To be sure - take the good stick out, swap in the suspect stick. run memtest. If it turns out good (at least 7 passes) then your problem is not the stick, but the slot.

    generally sticks go bad, but on a rare occasion you can develop a bad slot - like during a surge or storm strike.

    the sticks are less than a month old, the MB is a couple months old, but the surge protector is as old and is still good...

    alright, to my dismay I tested what I thought was my good memory card in the first slot, it read 10,000 errors...

    I tried it again in the second slot, it went fine

    So I guess my first slot is broken? Are there any options for me to self fix it?

    The only thing I can suggest is blowing the slot out with some compressed air.

    If that doesn`t help, then the slot is bad, and can`t be repaired.

    How does that happen? My computer is surge protected and the protector strip is still good....

    Who knows why things like that happen. They just do.

    With your ram now in another slot. Have all your BSOD`s stopped?

    Havent encountered one yet... only running on 513 now though...

    Another question for ya... I have in my possession an ASUS CUV4X-E motherboard... Knowing my computer as well as you do now, would I be able to take the CPU from this one and put it on the ASUS and pretty much just transfer everything over?

    If both mobo`s have the same cpu socket(check in the manual), there shouldn`t be a problem.

    Just be aware that you would need to do at best, a windows repair, and at worst, a full format and reinstall of your OS etc.

    This is because your hard drive currently has the chipset drivers for your current mobo installed, and wont work with the new mobo.

    If you`re not confident in rebuilding a system, which is really what you`d be doing. Can you get a friend to help you?

    This article HERE may also be of help.

    In any case I recommend that you back up all your important data, before proceeding with the mobo swap.

    Regards Howard :)

    I`ve just looked at the specs for both your mobo`s.

    You cannot put your current cpu into the other mobo because it`s the wrong socket.

    Your current mobo is Socket LGA775. Your Asus mobo is Socket 370.

    alright then, if I buy one 1024mb memory stick and put it in my good slot, should I get to be about the same as it was before? When I had 2x 512mb's?

    Yes that should do it. Just make sure the ram you buy is compatible with your mobo.

    Whats the biggest DDR mem stick I could get my hands on?
  14. howard_hopkinso

    howard_hopkinso Newcomer, in training Posts: 25,948   +19

    As far as I`m aware. A 1gig stick of ram is the largest.

    I`m not familiar with Geil ram so can`t really say whether it`s any good or not.

    In any case, you should check to see if it`s compatible with your mobo.

    I meant for you to check with your mobo manufacturers website for compatible ram manufacturers/models.

    Your latest set of minidumps crash with memory corruption and an unknown image. They all have a bugcheck of 7F.

    0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP

    One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode: (1) Hardware failures. (2) Software problems. (3) A bound trap (i.e., a condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept). Hardware failures are the most common cause (many dozen KB articles exist for this error referencing specific hardware failures) and, of these, memory hardware failures are the most common.

    I believe you either have a ram problem or a hardware failure of some kind. Possibly the psu/mobo.

    Check your mobo for bulging or leaking capacitors. See HERE for ruther info.

    Regards Howard :)
