Preferred Solution: stuck in Windows Memory Diagnostic: motherboard or memory problem?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostics multiple times (1GB Ram = 2X512), sometimes it reposrts errors, and sometimes not!

I'm running two OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 64Bit, where I'm encountering bad performance, and Windows 7 32Bit which runs smoothly.

I'm not sure if it's really a memory damage or something else. I upgraded lately my CPU from Intel Pentium 4 506 to Intel Core 2 Duo 7500 (compatible with my mobo), when the BSOD appeared again and again.

Thanks in advance!

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic Reports Memory Problems

Hello TheHero2012, welcome to SF!

For better mem testing use:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Sorry, should have read better. W7 64B will not run on just 1Gb of RAM.
If it runs ok on the 32B then there is prob nothing wrong with the ram itself.

A:Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic Tool Huge problem

The Memory test repeats itself unless it encounters an error if you want to set it to run a certain number of times press F1 and enter a number (1-99). You can also pick what type of test you want to run and whether it is buffered or unbuffered.

I ran the extended test overnight and this morning it had rebooted into Vista. The problem is that there are no results in the toolbar to be viewed as the tutorial said it should be. Where can I view the results of the memory test?

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool Problem

Which memory test, which tool, and which tutorial? I'm presuming that you're using the built in memory tester - and it should've given you a notice if it passed the test or if it found any problems. If you didn't get a message, then I'd suspect that the test terminated abnormally - so you'll have to run the test and see if you can get a message from it (or see when it terminates). This'll involve a lot of boring, staring at the screen - but I've found not evidence of a log file or results page that will be displayed.Here's a link to the BC tutorial on the memory test: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-vista-windows-memory-diagnostics-tool/

I have a problem here. I am using Windows 7RC. Was having no probs with anything, just exploring this OS. I started windows memory diagnostic tool control panal. Now I cant get out of it. There is no response to esc=exit. Reboot=memory diagnostic tool. Try to boot in safe mode, it takes me straight to memory diagnostic tool. Tried to boot into the bios, it took me to memory diagnostic tool. Finally I uninstalled the two sticks of Kingston KVR800D2N5/1G, then reinstalled them hoping that would change things. Booted up, it went to memory diagnostic tool....I have no idea what is causing this. Any help would be appreciated here.
Oh, I use an Asus P5B-E motherboard.

The memory test process has most likely been added to the Windows Task Scheduler, with the task scheduled to run at every restart. Open Task Scheduler and remove MemDiag from the list of scheduled tasks.

I had been experience weird crashing errors in world of warcraft and narrowed it down to memory problems. The memory is old and not great memory so I downlaod windows memory diagnostic and got these errors...

Test Name Cache # of errors
ERAND On FAILED 427
LRAND On FAILED 26
additional information...
Slot A0 - 141 errors
Slot A1 - 312 errors

Thus both my memory sticks must have errors - the errors werent all in one slot.
Is this is enough to conclude both my memory sticks are bad and need replacing , or do i need to use a more advanced memory test like memtest or something (is that more advanced?) Is there any way to fix these errors and isolate the corrupt addresses from being used in the memory?

Thanks

I can perform a Standard test without any difficulty. However, when I tried to attempt an Extended test the process halted at about 10% of even the
first test. After about a quarter of an hour it was still at this point so I pressed Esc to cancel the test.
How long would this Extended test normally take ? Was I a little premature in stopping it ?

Your throughest testing would be memtest86.

Its a boot cd thats run startup and let run.

I used the extended test which runs 11 tests instead of 6. There is also an option for using an extended memory map where each test takes twice as long to run.

Is memtest more thorough? wmd seems to be doing its job..

I tried to run the Windows Memory Diagnostic (WMD) tool, but nothing happened. Except that when I boot up, the icon for WMD is always there. In Task Manager it says that MDres.exe is running.

Now, Ive searched around and there are basically two answers. One is presented HERE

It doesnt work for me, neither for a lot of other people.

The only other solution I've come across is to reinstall Win 7!

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic is looping!

Cross check your memory with memtest86 bootable CD for 5-6 passes as it could mean memory problems.

Next, run sfc /scannow to check integrity of System files.

Finally the next best thing before doing a Clean Reinstall is to Repair Install which reinstalls the OS while keeping programs, files and settings in place. However, botched settings can be transferred back in.

Others may have a more specific fix but I wanted to get you started since you've waited long enough.

How exactly do I burn the windiag.iso file that mtinst.exe creates to CD? Do I simply use the "burn Iso File" option of my burning software [Nero 6]? Do I rename the file to remove the .iso extension, and then "burn Iso file", as in the instructions for creating slipstreamed installation cds? Do I need to use Nero's "create bootable CD" option and then burn the iso file?

Any advice on how best to use WMDT? MS suggests using the menu options to turn the CPU cache off and to run the "extended memory map" rather than the default standard map.

My laptop (HP Pavilion dv2000) running Vista Premium SP2 has started running really slowly recently and I've been trying to find out why. One of the steps I've taken in trying to detect the issue is running Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool at startup. I ran this test successfully in the Basic Mode which includes MATS+, INVS, and SCHCHR, and when I say successful, I just mean that I don't see any results but the test completed. I tried running the test twice in Standard mode (same tests as basic + LRAND, Stride6, CHCKR3, WMATS+ and WINVC) and my computer powers off abruptly each time before the test even reaches 5% completion in the first run.

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool Powers Off My Laptop

If the computer powers off during the test, try this free memory test:
http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html (read the details at the link)

If it still shuts off, then you've got a hardware problem. Blow out the vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum cleaner - it'll cause damage) and ensure that the fan is working.

Beyond that, it's gonna require taking the case apart.

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete

Use the RAM - Test with Memtest86+.

I'd also scan with Malwarebytes, SFC, establish a Clean Boot, and the rest of the steps from Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Compare the install you did with the perfect install compiled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7. It's always best to delete all partitions during reinstall or if there was a foreign boot agent on the drive as in FreeDOS then I'd wipe it first with Diskpart Clean Command lest that boot code remain on the disk.

I just ran the extended suite of the Windows Memory Diagnostic trying to figure out why World of Warcraft kept crashing. And test 10/11 the Erand test came back as failed. I have two sticks of Kingston KVR400X64C3A/512 2.6V My mobo is Asrock P4VMB. I'm not a huge techie so I wouldn't be able to pinpoint specifically what's causing this error, maybe you guys can help. If there's any more information needed just say what.

Hi Folks,

I just ran Windows Memory Diagnostic (WMD) on my PC and received 173760 WStride-6 errors on one of my 512MB DRAM DIMMs. The other 512MB DRAM DIMM was completely error-free. I've done a search on the internet to find out what these WStride-6 errors mean but I've drawn a blank. The reason I ran the test is that I've been getting errors/reports of "corrupted" images from two different companies' disk imaging software.

Can anyone shed any light on these WStride-6 errors? What causes them and how do I eliminate them?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Team,

Memory Diagnostic Tool keeps launching on boot up windows 7. How to stop it. I daily kill the process from task manager. I try to search in internet but no result. Is it a bug? Kindly provide a solution.

Regards,
Kishore

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool keeps launching on boot up windows 7

Find out for sure by testing your RAM with memtest 86 for 5-6 passes or overnight to stress it. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

You are testing both the RAM and the slots here. I would also remove the RAM and examine the slots for debris, which is a good time to thoroughly blow out the dust in your PC.

If this doesnt' solve the error message then run SFC -SCANNOW Command .

I have bought a new PC for my wife without OS It is an Acer N G supplied only with FreeDOS on the HD I have installed Win Pro via a USB flash drive using the Windows DVD USB tool from the install DVD without any great difficulty Everything works but once she started using it she got crashes about once a day I tried it myself and get the same problem At present there isn't anything elaborate installed Mainly it will be used for browsing complete Windows Tool 88% at stops Memory BSOD Diagnostic and emails and a few of the built in card games Having installed Win Pro sp bit I BSOD Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete wiped the FreeDOS partition so that is now unallocated empty space She had to stop using it so I could check it all I got advice from the Win Forum Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at complete so I started with simple checks like PW and SFC and they looked fine I went back to the AMD website and their auto detect told me that I had all the up to date drivers Just to be safe I updated all the drivers from the AMD automatic system I was especially cautious about the graphics card as I know that can be very sensitive But the crashes still occurred - maybe after hours - maybe after minutes I set the PC to run the Memory Diagnostic from Administrative Tools Just the standard shutdown and run option it froze at complete After some hours I gave up and after a reboot tried again - same freeze but at Then I tried the memtest having downloaded it for recording to a CD That showed that the memory was OK in all respects I have worked my way through the Troubleshooting steps and something else I did made a great improvement The PC then ran fine without BSOD for four days but crashed again once the day after That was about a week ago and some days it is OK and on others it just crashes after a while Today I switched it on after a three day break and there were some updates to do I left it unattended and when I looked again after an hour - lo and behold - BSOD again The last suggestion in the Win Forum was from Gregrocker who wrote quot Can you confirm that there is no BSOD dump file being generated Even if not post back the Blue Screen of Death BSOD Posting Instructions - Windows Forums exactly as specified so a fresh set of eyes can look over the problem Ask the analysts to please see if they can spot the problem in the reports submitted even if absent a dump file quot I cannot find any minidump folder on the PC and there is no memory dump file So I have followed the BSOD Posting Instructions to use DM Log Collector and the file generated is attached Hopefully someone can give me an answer from its contents Tony PS I had to restart the PC from BSOD to get the data - as I write this an hour later it is still sitting there with an innocent look on its normal Desktop Screen

A:BSOD Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete

Please make sure your computer is set for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD Then make sure there is a folder in C:/Windows named Minidump. If not, create one.

Also, check your Windows Updates and make sure there are no recommended or important updates left to run and in the left column look at view update history and see how many have failed.

When you ran memtest did you run this one for 8 complete passes?
Please Run Memtest86+



   Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Also, Please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

A:BSOD's Memory I think... Maybe Motherboard memory controller?

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

A while back I tried adding more memory to my HP motherboard. It orginally had 6GB, and I added 2x1GB sticks to the motherboard to make 8GB of RAM total. When I started up the computer, 1 short beep and 1 long beep came from it. I immedietly took out the new RAM sticks and when I tried starting up the computer a second time, the same 1 short beep and 1 long beep came from it again. I looked it up and of course it comes up as a memory problem. Is there anyway I can fix this or is the motherboard done for?

A P4 3.2 system (Asus P4S8X with two 512 sticks of Corsair Value Ram) is getting blue screens after sitting idle for two months. Memtest86 usually (bit not always) shows a single bad address (only in Test 6) when both sticks are in but finds nothing wrong with either stick by itself, in either slot. When each DIMM is swapped out with a new DIMM (different make), the same bad address appears - but only if both DIMM slots are filled. If you jump to Test 6, nothing shows up as bad. If you start Memtest at Test 1 and let it run, it USUALLY (bit not always) finds one bad address - and it is always the same exact address that fails. Using two new 512 DIMMS gives the same results. Must be a bad motherboard, no? But how can a SINGLE address be bad??? Anyone seen anything like this before?

Hi,

I recently upgraded my computer and brought some new DDR3 memory for my motherboard (Asus m5a78L).

Man code for the RAM: CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 (2 x 4GB 1333 corsair ram)

The problem is that I miss read the compatibility list and this memory is not on the motherboard memory support. My PC has been crashing randomly whereby the screen would freeze and the speakers would emit a loud buzzing noise. Is there any way of getting around this problem ? Or will I simply need to get a different memory set?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

We had our main machine blue-screen on us a couple times within a week I took the memory out and diagnostic result Memory put it into a different machine and ran Windows Memory Diagnostic from floppy those USB floppy drives are cheap and actually functional and handy by the way I left it running in Standard Memory diagnostic result mode for about hours When I came back to check it it had done passes and it showed one error during pass It also reveals which module when I drill down Is this conclusive that it s bad memory What are the odds it s a fluke mis-reading or perhaps some intermittent imperfection in some piece of hardware in the machine that this diagnostic test is running on The reason I ask is not so I know whether to replace the memory or not -- that s a given it s history I m asking because I need to make a decision on whether our main computer that was blue-screening is now okay because we removed this memory of if it may still have other bad hardware because this memory diagnostic is not really reliable Thanks nbsp

Hello everyone.. Ran across this link

http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

in another (GASP, CHOKE) forum and thought I'd post it here for review/ comments.

I used the download file to create a boot floppy which runs the diagnostic. You also have the option of burning it to a CD.

One advantage I see over other memory diagnostics I've used, is this one runs it's test sequence (a set of 8) continuously until you stop it. This allows one to run a repeateitive test sequence over an extended period of time (like over night) and have a better chance of detecting an intermittent fault.

I have used the Dell diagnostic software but I am not 100% comfortable that its the best out there. I want something that I know that if it says the memory is good I will feel confident that its right.

Hi!

I just built a PC with following configuration:

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
- Foxconn A690GM2MA-8KRS2H Socket AM2 Motherboard
- G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
- Windows Vista Premium Home Edition


When I start the system it hangs after showing the Foxconn logo. When I tried various things it appears that there is a compatibility issue with the Motherboard and Memory.

I removed one of the 2 memory stick and the computer started working fine. But now I am left with 1 GB memory only. I want to find out if anyone knows the solution to this. I want to keep both the motherboard and Memory if possible.

If the issue can be resolved by changing the Voltage or Memory timing, please let me know how to do that. I have never done that before.

thanks

Hi I got an ASUS K SV type of notebook When holding down F Recovery Failure RAM Memory Partition Diagnostic in at boot time my computer should boot into the recovery partition which allows me to reinstall Win Recovery partition is something like GiB located on the outermost tracks of my TB internal drive and seems to be hidden So after booting with F down I come in the following setup menu Windows Boot Manager Choose an operating system to start or press TAB to select a tool gt Windows Setup EMS Enabled To specify an advanced option for this choice press F gt Tools Windows Memory Diagnostic Before installing Win for the very first time RAM Memory Diagnostic Failure in Recovery Partition it would be smart just to run a memory diagnostic test prior to installing Win However that does not work at least not in my case After toggling to quot Tools Windows Memory Diagnostic quot I get the following screen Windows Boot Manager Windows failed to start A recent hardware or software change might be the cause To fix the problem Insert your Windows installatin disc and restart your computer RAM Memory Diagnostic Failure in Recovery Partition Choose your language settings and then click quot Next quot Click quot Repair your computer quot RAM Memory Diagnostic Failure in Recovery Partition If you do not have this disc contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance File boot memtest exe Status x f Info The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt So why is that It looks like the file boot memtest exe is not present in the recovery partition I had a look in the recovery partition made it unhidden first and indeed memtest exe is not present in the boot folder in fact memtest exe is nowhere present on the recovery partition but it is present on the C partition and part of the quot Windows Repair Option quot hold down F at boot time where it works just fine Concluding Why does the quot Tools Windows Memory Diagnostic quot under F not work Why is the memtest exe not present on the recovery partition Is there anyone out there with an ASUS computer where the Windows Memory Diagnostic works just fine after bootup with F Thanks

A:RAM Memory Diagnostic Failure in Recovery Partition

Both Windows Memory Diagnostic Test and Factory Recovery are inferior choices. Most tech enthusiasts will not use either but prefer to use the vastly superior RAM Test with Memtest86+ and to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

These may not be the answers you wanted to hear, but they are the best practices for perfect Win7 performance which is our specialty here.

BTW don't forget to make your Recovery Disks if you are going to rely on Factory Recovery as it can fail from partition when run to reinstall the factory crapware larded into Win7. So you need the backup.

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate bit version on a new computer days old After experiencing several BSOD I decided to run a memory diagnostic However every time I try to run Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool it starts up to run it but then I get a screen saying it cannot be run because boot memtest exe is missing or corrupted It was suggested by a helpful Microsoft tech from India that I should do a quot in-place upgrade quot however in following the instructions I got to the point where it asks whether I want to do a Upgrade Install and keep my files programs etc or a Custom advanced Install but lose my files programs etc The tech suggested I do the latter but I don't want to have to reinstall everything Any idea why my memtest exe is not working What is the proper way to quot rewrite quot the OS and presumably a function version of memtest exe onto my hard drive without losing all my data

A:Missing Vista Memory Diagnostic Tool

The way to do this would be the In Place Upgrade.Why memtest.exe isn't working - most likely because it's either not there, or the path to it is incorrect.My suggestion tho', is to download a free, bootable memory testing utility and leave the system alone (if it's working properly otherwise). Here's a link to one that I use: http://www.memtest86.com/

Good explanation here: Artur's tech support blog: Windows memory diagnostic stuck in the loop

Try booting your Install DVD, take the Repair path then Command Prompt. See if

as described in the above article will work from there.

Hiya and welcome

Have you tried running this line from the Start | Run instead of a DOS command prompt? Also, what about if you move the windiag.iso just to your C drive, and try this:

cdburn.exe e: c:\windiag.iso

You can pop the -sao and/or -max in after if needed

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool (MDRes) keeps launching on boot up

I gave an aswer which was simple and easy, but then read your post again and saw that your deleted your restore points. This is never suggested. The small space saved does not warrant their removal due to situations, just like this.
Did you try to go to search, notification area, and then untick the service if listed.
In lieu of using a method that would have worked, try this and SFC command.
System Files - SFC Command
Just a wild guess, but if you go to search and type "turn windows features on", if it is there you can untick it.
You could try downloading Winpatrol, the startup items seem to be in more detail than msconfig and you may be able to turn it off from there if it shows.
You can try Process Explorer ( not necessary to download, you can just run it from the site) and see if the process can be killed with that software.

Now when I start windows it is stuck in an infinite boot loop, Last known config, safe mode, nothing works.

Windows 7 setup from boot also gets stuck while loading before it even starts( no reboot)

Motherboard:

I read now that the memory is So-dimm ddr2.. does it matter much?

The package says:
KVR667D2S5/2g
2gb PC2-5300 CL5 200 - Pin SODIMM

On the memory it says:
KVR667D2N5/2g --sp 1.8v.


SO-DIMMs are usually used in notebooks. They are only 6cm long, and won't fit in your motherboard. Check out this link. SO-DIMM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is the specifications for your memory:http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR667D2N5_2G.pdf

It ain't so-dimm.

Do you have access to another working computer? You might want to download and burn Memtest 86+. Then install both dimms in your motherboard, and boot from the CD and run some tests to see if the memory checks out ok.

You didn't say if you get stuck in the boot loop with your original memory installed? Can you clarify?

I have narrowed it down to three possibilities. Game guard the hacking prevention system built into the game is not compatible,not having enough ram to process the game request at the time i try to run the game or There might be an issue with AMD catalyst control system being out of date and is interfering with my game. Is there anything I can do besides uninstalling and re-installing the game? I have done this 3 times and it is only a temporary fix since the error is back after 2 game plays.

Make/model of system board/computer.

What does your BIOS show? At first glance it appears you have shared memory, typically this is a laptop setup and if memory allocated to video less available to the system.

Check to make sure it's not Write-protected.There should be a switch somewhere on it.
You should then be able to reformat /repartition it. If not then it could be a defective product. I'd return it and try another.

I had problems with Windows Installer Poping up every time I started the MS Outlook Program. I was advised to go to and type MSCONFIG in the Run box, go to the Services Settings, uncheck the Windows start up tab and apply.

Once this was done and my computer re-started I was in the diagnostic mode and could not change. Even though I went back to the MSCONFIG and set the start up in the Normal Start Up- load all devices and drivers the computer still continues to start in the diagnostic mode. I can not use my printer and every time that I re-boot I get alot of warnings such as 'Can't Enumerate Devices'

How do I get this thing out of the Diagnostic Mode?

I have windows 7 home premium 64bit. My dell laptop is currently stuck at the diagnostic startup whenever I load up the computer. I have ran both memory test and memory system, and both indicated no error. I have tried going into safe mode using F8 but that didn't work. I tried reinstalling the system using my Windows 7 CD but apparently I can't boot from the CD either. The CD doesn't automatically read nor does it work from the F12 boot up. I can't access the command prompt either. No matter what I do, it keep returning to the diagnostic screen.

Please help!

I'm buying an ASUS P5Q LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard with an E8500 processor and a Radeon HD 4870. The memory standard is DDR2 1200, but is it possible to use lower speeds like DDR2 1066? Also if anybody has better recommendations for a motherboard ($100-$200) I'd like to hear them. Thank you in advance.

A:Use which memory for motherboard?

You can use DDR2 PC2 5300, PC26400, PC2 8500, or PC2 9600, in 2 GB modules per slot... use matched pairs. I recommend Crucial for their ability to read your board on line and verify.

This mother board caught my attention since it's Sli with three inputs, except the memory standard confused me a bit. It says: DDR2 800 Support for up to 1200MHz SLI-Ready Memory with EPP.

I found memory DDR2 Pc2 9600 memory that's 1200 mhz but the question that I have is, Is this memory going to run at 1200mhz on this mother board? If it runs at all? Do I MUST have Sli configuration for the memory to work?


Edit: The mother board is deactivated...but I still wanna know. Please?

Anyday now..
 

A:EPP Memory and Motherboard?

Be patient someone with knowledge of the subject will respond to your post asap. You dont need to run sli cards for the ram to work, and yes if the motherboard says it supports up to 1200 ddr 2 you can buy 1200 ddr 2 and it will work fine. You may have to manually set the speed of the ram to 1200 in the bios, but either way, you should be fine

well use the memory in a known good system.. and to test the motherboard at hand take all the memory out and if you get no system beeps then the system board is bad..just make sure a system speaker is present and not the on board audio..processor needs to be in during testing and if you get system beeps then the proc is probable ok..good luck mate

I was reading the specs for a motherboard i am considering buying. under memory type it says sdram/ddr. i know what ram is, but whats the difference between sdram and ddr. do i need both or just one? and if so which one should i go with?
 

A:memory for motherboard

You only need one kind of RAM...

Are you sure it said SDRAM/DDR and not DDR-SDRAM?

The reason i ask is that the former card supports both types of ram, whilst the latter only supports DDR...

DDR is a faster version of SDRAM, as it has DoubleDataRate, which means double throughput of data...

If I were you I'd go for DDR as long as the board supports it, as it is faster whilst not being to expensive...

I'd also try to find a board which doesn't support both SDRAM and DDR, as they're usually performing a bit worse than a DDR only board...

You need to decide if you want a gaming computer, one for an office, strictly internet, photo editing or a basic all around family PC. Then you've got to figure out how much money you are willing to spend. It all matters on building a new machine that will be reliable and up to date.

Lately i have noticed my Laptop running A bit slower then usual.
Programs that i use a lot have become more and more sluggish
e.g. Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Premiere.

Personally i Think my laptop is more then capable to run those programs without any problems, however i have noticed that in my task manager my Physical Memory seems to be stuck on 44% even when no applications are running (except for anti virus) even after disabling anti virus software it is still 44%

Should it be that high while the system is doing nothing or is that a lot of RAM going to waste ? is there any way to free up this RAM ?

Hello,
I have a memory stick pro duo and someone stuck it in my computers card reader slot without using the adapter thingy to make it fit! :dead: (see example here)

The card has slid all the way to the back of the reader. I did try using a tweezer like most people used to solve their problem, but i bought 3 different sized tweezers and they don't fit because the card has went above the rail that you slide it in.
Any ideas on how to remove it?

If you don't understand what i mean, i can take a picture and attach it. Just ask.


Thank you

However the Windows (C memory of other computers for example in the library and in the college used only between 40GB and 60 GB even though they are bigger than my laptop. As a consequence I have problem because I have little memory left in my laptop. My laptop has some applications like all the computers but I think that each application uses approximately 1 GB. Hence I would like to know why my laptop used so much memory and how can I free memory.
