tested by pairs & with individual DIMMS. Results never varied.

This is a bug report for GA-P35-DS4 Rev.2.0 ***F9 BIOS***

Running the popluar memory diagnostic tool "memtest86+" v1.7 results in numerous "false positive" errors. Errors always occurring during test 1 and/or test 2 and always at address "0007feedf18" regardless of memory brand/size/configuration. I flashed back to the F8 BIOS and memtest86+ v1.7 runs without issue.

Please refer to the "more detailed configurations" section for more information on tested memory.

I also briefly tested memtest86 v3.2 with the same "false positive" errors.

  1. Wow. You have no idea how happy i am to see this post :)
    Thought I was going insane!

    I have the same issue with my DS3P rev 2.0

    Same memory address and similar RAM (Crucial Ballistix Tracers PC2-8500)

    Only difference is that I'm running F8 and getting the issue. Will try F9 tonight and see what happens.

    I'm getting video driver crashes in Vista which is what prompted me to go looking with MEMTEST. What made you start looking?

  2. I have identical problem with GA-EP35-DS4 board. (Q6600 processor stepping G0, 2,4MHz, Corsair Twin 2x2048-6400C4 memory. Al memory tests show errors on the addresses started close to yours value. All tests result where practically identical for single or double memory modules tested in all possible locations, as well different DDR voltage and latencies.
    Software bios upgrade from BIOS F1 to F2 clear all memory errors.
