Memtest Errors On One Single Memory Address


When running memtest86, a well known test utility, it revealed way too many errors to be healthy, but one thing that i find puzzling is that it's only with one certain pattern that i get a lot of errors, and when i say a lot, it ranges around 6 million errors. It's a 512 mb stick, and for the whole 512 mb on the pattern 00000000-1 it shows nothing but errors/bad data. Besides that it shows about 38 errors on other addresses. This stick is toast i'm guessing?

Memtest Test #7 Errors

As the title of the thread suggests test 7 in memtest fails with flying colors, every other test passes without a hitch! Now i've tried this chip in two motherboards (p4p800 e-deluxe '865' & ic7-max3 '875') with the same results. At stock timings memtest passes, clock it up and test 7 fails. I'm using ocz 4200 plats and with my 2. 6c @ 3. 25 these babies have no problems keeping up! I've even used dividers to no avail! I know its not the ram and it cant be the motherboards, so it must be the chip! The vcore is at 1. 475 and it seems stable, although i'm yet to prime the setup. I hear 1. 55 is the true max for prescotts is this true?

Anyway anyone got any suggestions other than pour petrol on the chip and set it on fire?

Memory Errors

Around a year ago i moved from my first computer ever (got it about 6 years ago), to my second, which was a major change since this one is built by me. I was ecstatic, and got a q6600, a gigabyte ga-p35-ds3, an 8800gt 512, an antec 900, 4gb ocz 800 ram, and a hiper 580w psu. Soon after buying these components, memory errors started showing up, so i returned the memory for some slightly different memory (nvidia sli ocz 800 4gb). This started to get errors also, so i returned that too, and got 4gb of ocz hpc reaper 800. Just recently, soon after moving into a cosmos 1000, every os that i am running (vista home premium and win 7 beta), has had the "host process for windows has closed", and the past couple of days, half life 2 and garrys mod have been crashing repeatedly, and randomly. Just yesterday x3:reunion crashed while i was playing, so i dropped dropped to windows, only to be greeted with "a plug and play device has terminated unexpectedly" (or something along those lines), and windows restarted. However, during the boot, it blue-screened with "memory management" as the cause. I have checked for viruses several times and have come up clean, and i have reinstalled windows cleanly. I was running a very stable overclock at 3. 00ghz with the memory at 800mhz/1. 8v (rated at 800mhz/2. 1v) and now i only have slight stability at standard (2. 4ghz/800mhz/1. 8v) and the memory is running much hotter than before (x3 crashed at standard clocks). So, after that long winded explanation, my question is this: what are the chances that it is my motherboard at fault? If so, which would be a good replacement?

Referenced Memory Could Not Be Read Errors

It seems like every since i installed sp2 i randomly get referenced memory could not be read errors. I cleaned my ram with a eraser, tested my ram, practically had my whole system checked out. I narrowed it down to sp2 since it all started when i installed sp2(or so i think its caused by sp2). Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions.amd athlon 1700+

Errors With Memory In Dual Channel Mode

I have an abit av8 third eye mobo with an amd 64 3500 processor and i have i have 2 512 sticks of corsair xms 3200 memory. When i put both sticks in the first two slots i get a lot of blue screens of death and then the computer just shuts off. When i have one stick in the first slot and one stick in the third slot it works ok but i'm guessing this means i'm not in dual channel mode. I was wondering if dual channel mode makes that big of a difference? Am i doing something wrong when i have the two sticks in the first two slots? Do i have to enable dual channel mode? Do i need drivers? I really dont know anything about dual channel mode so if someone could shed some light on this that would be great.

Computer Shuts Down During Memtest

My comp was suddenly shutting off during movies, music and internet browsing. It gen didn't shut off while standing still. I used the dell os cd to erase the partition and format ntfs (reg, not quick). During the menu's before the formatting and during the formatting, it continue'd to shut off. Now i don't have an os. On another comp, i burned two cds, one is window mem test and the other is memtest. The computer passed the windows mem test on all 11 counts of the adv scan. It keep restarting during the other cd, with memtest. Neither memory testers show an error while they are running. Both are run in default mode, as configured when i burned the isos the their cds. I ran the built-in diag tool in the bios, but it could only run half the tests, because the diag utilies on the hd are erased. I don't have the drivers and utilities cd that it asks for. Is this a memory prob, power supply, or what? I don't really have money to take to a repair shop or buy parts without knowing the prob. Let me know if you need any more info.

Memtest - Blue Screen

My computer has had various blue screens in the last few days. Mostly its machine_check_exception or critical_structure_corruption. It passes memtest with flying colors, or so i thought! I decided to run orthos over night and i set it to reboot upon bsod. I also inserted the memtest cd so as soon as it rebooted it would start running memtest. Well as soon as it crashed and memtest launched it spammed hundreds of errors. Powered off, turned back on, passed memtest with flying colors. Any ideas here? Read more at the forum.

I have a desktop hooked directly to a motorola sb5101cable modem through usb at the same time i've connected a laptop directly to the cable modem through the ethernet port and i was getting a limited or no connectivity message on the laptop, checked the ip address and it was invalid so i did ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew and it said it was unable to renew address.could this be because my desktop was connected to the internet at the same time?

How To Calculate Physical Address ?

Can anyone help me calculate a physical address for a memory location? I know the bus width (bw), segment address (sa), and logical address (la). Memory location #1: bw - 12 bits, sa - a5h, la - 09h

Memory location #2: bw - 20 bits, sa - 2e1h, la - 81bh

The sa and la have to be represented by numbers the size of a register (words) and the final answer has to be in hex.

Stuck At Obtaining Ip Address

I've tried just about every typical wireless internet troubleshooting solution i know of, including resetting the router, and i still can't connect. The best i can do is "limited access. " Windows troubleshooter seems to think that i have entered the wrong security key, but that is not the case. And the problem is not with my computer because i can't connect with my droid either. It gets stuck at "obtaining ip address. " Any ideas?

Ip Address And Router Trouble

We have a desktop computer, a laptop, and an ipod touch. With our router, for some odd reason, we are only "allowed" to use the internet on only one of the devices at a time. For example, right now i am on the laptop (wireless), and if another person in the house wants to use the destop, i have to turn my wifi off cause on the desktop it says that there is an ip address conflict. I'm not sure on how to fix this in order for us to all use the internet at the same time. At first i called the router company (i have a dynex enhanced wireless g router) and they told me that they couldn't help me and that the problem was my network card and that microsoft could help me fix the ip address. So i went and called microsoft, no help. They said that the problem was in part of our internet provider. So, of course, i called my internet provider, and they said that they would have to configure my modem and router for $130. I'm sure there is a way for me to fix this problem without having to pay that much.

Computer Keeps Trying To Acquire Network Address

My acer aspire one won't connect to my linksys router, even though other devices do connect. My acer connected to the router before, but when i got a new router, it just didn't connect, even though my other devices connected fine. When i turn on my computer, on the right hand corner on the bottom pops up and says, "wireless networks detected, click here to connect. " Or something like that. I click it and it gives me the list of available networks to connect to. I click the one i want and it just goes to the point where it tries to connect to the router. It doesn't even ask for a wep password. It just keeps on trying to acquire the network address or something like that.

Renewing Ip Address - Network Problem

Ok well, we recently bought my wife a new computer, and when we did we also bought a 5 port hub (6 if you count the uplink) some ethernet cables so i could hook both of our computers and my ps2 up to our cable modem. Well i got mine working fine, cable modem is plugged into the hub and my computer is plugged up to the hub and mine runs fine. Hers tho, it tells me hers has "no or limited connectivity", if i try to go to repair connection it just sits there forever at "renewing ip address" so anyone have any idea's what i'm doing wrong or what i'm not doing?

To set up mine to work on the hub i went to the network wizard, create new network, then it asked me if i wanted this computer to connect through another computer or if i wanted another computer to connect through this one, i click 'other' then there's an option of 'this computer connects to a hub, and so do other computers on my network' so i chose that for mine then did the same for hers, hers isn't working and mine is so i don't know what's wrong.

Single Beep On One Boot

Alright. I was playing around in the bios and i selected a fsb setting of 166 and rebooted. Blank screen, no boot. Nothing. So, as in previous instances of this i cleared the cmos by the jumper on my soltek sl-75frn2 and held the insert key as i powered on. Nothing. No go. The cd-rom reads, but doesn't do anything else. The hdd light comes on for about 20 seconds and disapears. I heard a single beep on one boot, that is all. I have unseated the memory and videocard independently to see if i would get a beep but there were no such instances.

4 Monitors On A Single 5870

I'm looking to eyefinity 4 monitors (3 would be 1 group and extended on the fourth). My monitors don't have display ports, and so from what i read i would have to buy active adapters for the last two monitors. If i just buy another 5870 would i be able to use the dvi on the second card?

It seems it would be better to go ahead and get another card instead of spending 200$ on adapters. Is there something i'm missing or is this the only way?

How To Tell If Ram Is Single Sided ?

My problem is i got a new epox mobo with my new athlon 64. The mobo is on the nforce chipset which i can only have one double sided stick of ram and the other stick has to be single sided. Or to get 3 gigs on there they all have to be single sided. I just ordered a geil ultra series value 1 gig stick pc-3200, cas lat is 3 8-4-4. So my question is i'm lookin for a single sided stick 1 gig pc 3200 to go with it (not sure if the geil is single sided i sent ten million emails to companies that make decent ram don't get replies half the time or they say yeah we have some single sided ram but they never give me the model no. Or anything even when i mail them back. ) So is there anyway to tell if its single sided on the net? Or can anyone recommend a single sided 1 gig stick of pc 3200?

Mac Address Invalid In Both Flash And Cmos

I suppose this issue could go under motherboards. Anyways let me list what i think is wrong. My physical address (mac address) is reading 00-00-00-00-00
I get this error in the boot screen "mac address invalid in both flash and cmos, press f1 to continue"

This occurred after i updated to latest bios and cleared the cmos. My mistake was i cleared the cmos immediately after the update, where on asrock website they say do so after an inital boot up and shut down. Oh yah i have an asrock dual vista lg775 motherboard, via pt880 pro/ultra chipset. The via lan chipset is vt6103

Basically what i'm trying to do is somehow flash in the mac address, with a proper one. I'm not even sure if i can do that, i may have to rma the board. Asrock website instructed me to fill out a technical report and submit, which i've done already. However i don't like waiting and am trying to fix this bugger myself. I've downloaded the app which runs from dos off of a bootable floppy that is capable of flashing the mac address, however i don't know if it's do able cause i don't have a mac address as of this moment. Will putting in a new one even do anything now? Oh yeah my lan is still working, which is kinda weird considering other sources i've looked at suggested that the lan would not be working if this problem had occurred. Any suggestions?

Invalid Ip Address Disconnects Internet Every 5 Mins

My internet connection has been very unstable lately, and as i discovered, my "ip address type" seems to go from "assigned by dhcp" to "invalid ip address" every now and then. So instead of obtaining an ip address automatically, i manually put in a static ip, and that seemed to solve the problem for a while, but it came back. This time the thing goes from "manually configured" to "invalid ip address". And when that happens my ip address and subnet mask becomes "0. 0. 0". Hence my internet works on and off and it's really annoying.
