I have an ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard. This mobo has video onboard and it’s an nVidia 6150. I shared for video 128MB from my 2048MB of 2x1GB in dual channel mode Geil Ultra DDR2 800 4-4-4-12 memory.
Actually this kind of memory is not on the QVL list of this motherboard. I mean ASUS id not saying that this memory is OK to use with this motherboard. I couldn’t find Kingston at the moment of buying components for my PC and I bought those Geil memories. My computer is working fine with that memory except one thing.
CPU-Z is telling me that is working in 5-5-5-15 not 4-4-4-12 but that’s OK because I understand that is not on QVL list, but I have some issues at from standby wake-up moment using Win XP SP2 32bit. It gave me some blue-screen error with smaller fonts and I don’t have time for reading because the system is restarting. Unfortunately I don’t have some photo camera to make a photo. At each wake-up from standby is giving me the same error and same restart.
I tried to install Win XP x64 SP2. This was OK except now that it’s doing the same at wake -up from standby, and … Win XP x64 has some problems at starting up. Before the welcome screen appears, at the moment of “rolling blue” and drivers loading it’s just restarting. It’s doing this for about 3 or 4 times and after that it can finally complete load.
Could this be a memory issue or just a video-onboard issue? I installed the latest ASUS video drivers and nVidia drivers and the problem persist.
Soon I’ll buy some Kingston CL4 memory who is on QVL list and I’m hoping that only the memory was the problem, but if you have some other idea please let me know.
