  1. Where and how are you 'seeing' that .53V? I'm kind of thinking a sensor failure, or software trouble, as I really can't believe it could run at all if the Vdimm actually dropped that far! Also, whose ram? I've, on several occasions, seen Corsair appear to 'degrade over time', requiring diddling with the timings and voltages to get it running again...
  2. Samsung M3 78T2863RZS-CF7 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) the program was everest ultimate edition
  3. the volts only dropped for a sec or to but its the only thing i can think of
  4. First thing to do is enter the BIOS, and take a look on the "PC Health Status" - see what the fourth item, "DDR18V" is reading...
  5. ddr18v bios reading 1.824v same as everest program
  6. Could have been a random error, have you tried running Memtest? I have had a few sticks do that before and it's because of the RAM dying.
  7. ran memtest from start up run scandisk , defag reg ,clean reg still i cant see whats wrong with it
  8. fixed this problem it was the new sound driver installed old one works grate
