View Full Version : Abit - Memory Problem - 768MB
09-19-2001, 08:42 PM
I have been running my Abit KT7 AMD 1 GHZ with 512 MB of
RAM. (Crucial CT32M65S4D7E 256 mb) each. I purchased another chip (3rd) and the motherboard reads the memory and boots in the Win2K boot screen. After that screen goes away, my monitor disables and blinks on and off. I removed the memory and all goes well. I need help! Anyone with suggestions.:dir:

Check your BIOS settings for the DRAM 0-2 settings, under pg 3-19 of the Kt7 mobo scrolls(guide). If you are setting at turbo, there's probably enough minute timing diffferences between the two runs of the chip that may be causing an instability.
If running at turbo, start moving the settings down, one at a time, until you achieve stability. If you are alredy at 8/10ns, then, it is probably a different issue.
The next culprit to check is the level of the BIOS that you are running. Some updates corrected timing issues for the DRAM slots, and this may be applicable to your situation.
And welcome to the Board! :rasta:

You may also look into specifying the DRAM Read Latch Delay. This is usually set to Auto but you might have to specify a specifc nS delay especially in the cases where you had 3 double-sided DRAM modules.
Also, did you check the KT7 FAQ? You can find the link in the sticky posted in this forum...

Ok, I want to thank Bitbender and ImaginAsian for you help. Bitbender, I tried what you suggested and I thought that had it corrected. I changed the option till I got to boot in, which was set to Medium. It did stop responding after I had logged in. (Was farther than before) So then I changed it to normal and completely froze after login.
After reading ImaginAsian, I changed the DRAM Read Latch Delay to 1.0, it was set to AUTO. This actually allowed me to enter through. I will see how stable it will last, so far it is stable.
Thanks again, I am super happy now. I hope this helps other who dare to tap into the high MB zone.:spin:
