Hello, I have a problem with my current system.
ECS Elitegroup G31T-M
2x2GB PC6400 crucial ballistix ram DDR2
Radeon HD 4650 video card
Hitachi 1TB hard drive
I've had this computer about 3 yrs, after the 1st yr ive started having stability issues. Constant BSOD's with Memory_management, IRQL not equal or less etc.... errors that point towards the ram. I finally got around to running memtest86+ to find errors
by test 3 i had 20 errors
by test 4 i had 183 errors
by test 5 i had 197 errors
test6 i had 230
test 7 306 errors.
I believe the problem might be that the RAM requires 2.0 volts to run at 4-4-4-12
The problem with my G315-M motherboard is that it DOES NOT allow the changing of voltage so it automatically sends 1.87 volts to the ram. I've RMA'd the ram and the new ram received 0 errors in memtest86+ but i worry my original problem will recur, and if the ram really did originally go bad by being fed subpar voltage. Btw I updated the bios fairly recently and still unable to change the voltage
Is there a solution where I can either forcefully change the voltage? or can anyone recommend a very cheap cost effective motherboard replacement. It is also worth noting that I did contact ECS regarding the issue, their tech support is rather.... lacking.
