I pulled the 2 sticks of 512mb and replaced them with 2 sticks of 1gb (Corsair). (cmx1024re-3200) TWINX2048RE-3200
My Bios has an auto setting for the latency. So I just left it alone and changed out the memory.
The first time I booted up my computer after the change it started fine but completely froze less than 3 minutes in.
Rebooted and after approx. 5 minutes it completely froze again.
Third time I rebooted it lasted at least 30 minutes before completely freezing.
4 out of the 5 times I have been on it has completely froze.
This computer has never completely frozen like this since I received it in March of 2004.
my mem configuration in the Bios reads:
mem clk 400 mhz
cas latency 3.0
trcd 3 clk
tras 8 clk
trp 3 clk
ECC is disabled and has been since I bought it. I have also never upgraded the bios. All settings for memory are on auto.
I used memtest86 on each stick individually for 2 hours each and it showed no errors. (w/ ECC disabled)
I've been reading for hours. But can't seem to figure out what to do next.
I am now running with only one stick in and will see if I get any freezing.
