Buffalo Firestix FSX800D2B-K2G Problem need help.
« on: March 03, 2009, 12:21:47 pm »
   

I had 2 sticks of Buffalo Firestix FSX800D2C-K2G installed on my MSI MB. I took them out and installes 4 sticks of Buffalo Firestix FSX800D2B-K2G. Now the computer doesn't boot to vista. I took them out and installed Buffalo Firestix FSX800D2c-K2G back on screen it tries to book into vista then the screen goes blank back to start up again. If anyone can help me it would be great.

 

Thank, you.

When adding memory to DDR800 mobos, often you have to raise the VDIMM by .1V first. Try raising from 1.8 to 1.9Vdimm in the BIOS, before you add the extra two modules, then boot up.

 

If it isn't booting up at all, the CMOS BIOS probably got corrupt when booting with 4 modules. Reset the CMOS BIOS by removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes, then replace battery, boot to BIOS with original two modules, and set the BIOS to Optimum and reboot.

After a clean reboot, raise the Vdimm by .1V, prior to reinstalling the two new memory modules.

When memory timings/voltage is set to Auto, this will gray out the timing and voltage options. You need to set the memory to Manual, to ungray the user configurable timings.

Verson 1.22. Also, when the computer is booting into vista I can hear like 7 clicks and then the computer reboots.

 

Thanks, for all your help

current BIOS revision is 1.7

1.2 is 2007 revision

 

Have you tried setting the Memory Timings field to manual. This might open up the memory voltage setting.

   Please send us a forum update, after the BIOS is updated.
