Subject: [gentoo-user] A8V motherboard defective ?
Date: Tue, 30 May 2006 00:26:16
1 I have an A8V motherboard and I suspect the it is defective or just the
2 memory bus is defective, any input will be appreciated.
4 The A8V has two DIMM memory banks (running Linux AMD64):
5 A1 A2 B1 B2
6 I have 2x 512 DIMM's (same modules Kensington KVR) on banks: A1 and B1
7 Originally I suspected memory chip as it was giving me a headache from
8 the start, I could barely install Gentoo on it. I run Memorytest86
9 couldn't find much; I run Red Hat memory test script, it hang up so it
10 indicated hardware problem.
11 I replaced both memory sticks and I was able to install Gentoo but still
12 at
13 time to time compiling exit with an error indicating some hardware
14 problem when I'm trying to compile a larger piece of code.
15 Today, I've tried to compile "qt" and it constantly keep giving me an
16 error, exiting with an error. Rebooting PC didn't help.
17 I removed one memory stick (running only on one in B1) and it compiled
18 just fine and it keeps compiling, I swap memory sticks (replacing the
19 one in
20 B1 with the one I removed from A1) still running on one memory stick and
21 it keeps compiling just fine, no errors. So it would indicate the
22 memory sticks are OK.
24 Should I suspect the motherboard?
