I'm having some problems apparently stemming form my RAM. When I boot up my PC, my AMI BIOS give me a three beep error code (Memory Read/Write Error in first 64KB block). I reseated them in different banks, same problem. I've also bought new RAM, and I get the same beep code. I've ran memtest off of Knoppix on both sets of RAM and both pass. I also did the eraser trick, checked my RAM settings in the BIOS, sprayed the banks with compressed air, upgraded the power supply, and hired an exorcist. Now I'm flat out of ideas. I am able to boot into both of my OSes for the most part OK, but in XP I'll get an occasional BSOD referring to the RAM.
This is the second board for my system. The first board had it's own memory issues too which is the main factor in getting my current board. This rebuild is using the same over all hardware (case, CPU, DVD, etc.). I find it improbable for two boards to have memory issues even after switching RAM and boards, so I doubt buying another board will do.
My system was built by yours truly. My motherboard is a MSI MS-7508 (with current BIOS) with two 1 gig PC2-6400 Crucial RAM with proper voltage, timing, and FSB. The second pair is two 1 gig PC2-6400 Mushkin RAM I'm at my wits end.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to help remedy my problem?
