KEP is reporting computer fixed
 
Hi everyone... first let me thank you for your support, in terms of trying to solve the hardware issue concerning my computer... especially paul underwood, who contributed hardly. He guessed on a RAM problem, and it was partly true, because the RAM themself is not malfunctioning, but the second RAM entry in the mainboard, is having difficulties, so now by using the torture test of Mprime95, and switch between the rams, and switch from 1 to 2 rams in (out of 2 possible), have I ruled out any hardware difficulties. Fortunantly this one can be ignored, and bypassed, by using only 1 RAM block, which is sufficient for any BOINC project that I participate in.

Last - not least I appologize for any inconveniences and hope now to see my fitted computer find several new primes for TPS and help remove more candidates for the Riesel Sieve project :)

Have a nice day everyone!

Regards!

KEP!

Thanks for the praise :smile:

Are the memory sticks identical? What is your mainboard's manufacturer and model number? What are your voltage readings in BIOS now?

As long as you can run P95's toture test for 24+ hours without error, your system should be stable enough for crunching.

Do both memory sticks individually pass with the Memtest86 program?

Mainboard:
Manufacturer-->Unknown
Brand --> Phoenix Technologies LTD
Version --> 6.00 PG
Date --> 4/29/2004

Voltage is 1.44

Well the memory sticks didn't get tested with memtest, but they passed the RAM testing part of Mprime95 torture test, so I believe that they are OK, because previously the torture test failed emideatly :(

Now I'll monitor the outcomes, both from Riesel Sieve, and TPS, and then I'll consider contributing a range to your project, if it runs flawless for at least a month, as a humble thank you for your kind patience and support :)

Regards!
