    No Memory Errors - DX58SO

    Danielo

      I am getting intermittent  "no Memory" errors on the DX58SO board (three long beeps) and no boot...seems to be happening when I first turn on the power switch after leaving it for awhile (like overnight). I was able to load an operating system and reboot the computer many times without the same errors. No errors from within the operating system as well

       

      When it does occur I tried reseating the memory and moving the modules around as well as clearing the CMOS but that did not start it up...I had to restart it several times and then it booted. I restarted it several times after that (even a cold boot) with no problems.

       

      I should note that I do not believe the memory to be a problem...when I first booted the board the other day I ran three passes of Memtest and there were no errors.

       

      The intel rep suggested that it may be because:

       

      "...The memory module voltage and timings are sometimes not detected correctly in the BIOS and can be adjusted manually to increase the system stability. There is an option in the BIOS to adjust this configuration.
      You can go to Performance > Memory Overrides and check that the RAM and timings match those provided by your manufacturer.  Do not change these settings without checking with them first, since a misconfiguration could damage both the motherboard and/or the RAM."

       

      The memory settings (auto) in the BIOS are as follows:

      VCLK Multiplier - 20
      Memory Multiplier - 10
      TCL - 9
      TRCD - 9
      TRP - 9
      TRASMIN - 24
      TRFC - 74
      TRRD - 5
      TWR - 10
      TWTR - 5
      TRTP - 5
      Memory Voltage -1.54


      Any ideas or opinions?
