T30 ram slot failure
Mar 25, · Thanks for the tip Msmax; one defective T30 memory slot recovered. I filed to needle point the tip of my 30W soldering iron, pulled it out a bit from the heater barrel so that there is not too much heat, tinned it with solder, then wiping it off with tissue paper to remove the molten lead, I . Dec 15, · The T30 is famous for having a memory slot problem where the ram slot pins separate from the motherboard. You can try to solder the pins back yourself, that usually fixes the problem. Several years ago I had a T30 that had this issue and fixed it myself. Mar 16, · Expansion: the T30 has enough slots to support the worst case I was considering: a gigabit Ethernet card, SATA controller card, and a dual-port 10GbE card. But only if I chose expansion cards carefully. You have one PCI slot, two half-length x4 PCIe slots, and one half-length x8 PCIe slot. Use them wisely.
Do you have bad RAM? Here's how to find out
Then right-click System yes, you have to click it and then right-click it and select Filter current log. You need to diagnose them. I down graded the bios on both mobo's but problem won't go away. I managed to resolve the problem with both motherboards and it was down to certain makes of ram working with different cpu apparently its a timing issue but can't be resolved by adjusting any bios settings and its only apparent when installing a certain make of Ram with a certain type of CPU. In the resulting window, click Restart now and check for problems. Venka Tesh asked how to diagnose possible RAM problems.

The System has 4x Memory slots equipped with corsair 4gb dims however total memory in bios is displayed under main shows 12gb instead of 16gb.
Things I have done are swapped over ram but fault is still on B1 tried 2gb, 4gb 8gb varieties of different ram and makes. The next strange thing I discovered is previously I had a rampage iv Extreme which I was going to upgrade to the Black edition and that has the same fault on slot B1 as the black edition. I down graded the bios on both mobo's but problem won't go away. I also tested the various ram I have on asus-p9x79 deluxe and it all works fine in quad channel.
Both systems are running together so different psu's ram modules and graphic cards. I'm hoping I have missed something really silly? If not then i'm really struggling to get my head around this one ; any help or idea's would be appreciated. Originally Posted by Topman.

At Present I have corsair working with k and ripmax with x swap the memory over and both boards return to the b1 slot fault. My conclusion is that there's still a few issues with these boards when it comes to ram and cpu matching.
Another possible symptom: The PC slows down considerably as you use it, but seems re-energized after a boot. You need to diagnose them. Send your query to answer pcworld. Windows comes with its own memory diagnostic tool. Search for memory and select Windows Memory Diagnostic. Windows will shut down, and your computer will reboot into the memory diagnostic program. Then right-click System yes, you have to click it and then right-click it and select Filter current log.
This brings up a new dialog box. Pull down the Event source menu. Click OK to close the dialog box. Back in the Event Viewer, note the listings in the top middle section; there will probably only be two, even if the message at the top of the pane tells you that there are thousands.
Then reboot and repeat the testing. Repeat with each stick. In addition to technology, freelance journalist and sometimes humorist Lincoln Spector is a passionate cinephile who writes the Bayflicks.

However, as time goes on, I'm sure manufacturing will improve and bring the latency down as is always the case. Also, I believe you can use only one or the other.
That is a decision the manufacturers make in deciding which modules to support. I'm very certain they didn't include support for both, as the pinouts are different. DDR3 has more pins in the memory socket than DDR2, so they are not compatible with each other, so basically whatever comes with said model, is the kind you're stuck with.
It should say in their specifications at their website. It's either got 2 slots for ddr3 or 2 slots for ddr2, so you CANT put a ddr3 and a ddr2 together. HP comes with DDR2 mhz. I have seen two benchmarks for those speeds on this site and the difference too small to matter. They make for desktop think you will see for notebooks soon so DDR3 has no speed advantage. DDR3 wins, but by a very small margin that's probably within the range of experimental error.
John Ratsey , Aug 25, And even if it's out of the range of error, it still isn't noticeable in real life.
