Pool error in windows xp

ok .. i had some problems with Xp, and ive change virtualy every componet in my system to new, and yesterday i just bought 2 new RAM modules ( 2* Corsair 512 XMS 1 CL2 ) and first of all, when windows have been running for some time i get BSOD'ed with and error called 0x000000C5( a IRQL pool error or thats what microsoft errorlib told me ). now i wonder if its related to either my new RAMS ( if there by any chance could be a error on them ) or if its purly software issue ( i didnt reinstal after i had installed the modules, dont think it nessesery).

another error is. in my BIOS i have a special area of settings called DRAM, that as of now is set to auto for every setting. when i change that to USER and change my CL to 2 ( as them cosair should support ) i then lose my internet connection after 10 min ( and i tryed 2 net adaptors the build in and one in the PCI slot). its simply just gone. and as for the question above i wonder if this is software or hardware too.

i have a
Athlon xp 2600+ (2130 MHz)
200 GB sata maxtor Fluied HDD
soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS
2* 512 MB Corsair XMS 1 CL2
ATI radeon 9800 pro 128 ( runnning Omega drivers )

and btw i have updated everything.

IRQL is an interrupt request error. Try moving you PCI cards to different slots and make sure you run Memtest86 on those Corsair sticks. Also, a lot of boards tend to undervolt memory. Take your Vdimm up to 2.7v at least and see if that helps. :smile:

ok ill run a memtest on it. one lil question though is it possible that memtest can fail in detecting the L2 mem speed for my processor.

its says unknown for it .. and my CPU has L2

Im not total sure but memtest is somewhat an old program so ya it could but reguardless it will tell you if you have faulty ram.Also if you have another computer you could plug your ram into that and see if it does the same thing.Another thing to try is take one stick out and test it.Odds are that only one stick is bad.

At least Corsair gives a lifetime warranty.

It could just be a compatibility issue. I don't know about Corsair, but Kingston's warranty is A-OK also.
