Twin Dual Cores,Testing Memory and Memory Pool's?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?TWFyaw==?=, Oct 20, 2005.

  1. I have problems with random reboots, lock-up's and graphic hic-ups on my desk
    top. After chasing a few theories, hardware problems seem to be answer.

    With two Dual-Core Opteron 265's and 8GB of PC3200 ECC REG RAM, memtest
    locked up because it cannot deal with dual CPU's or Dual-Core's.

    On advice (thank's Tony) I have tried Microsoft's Memory test, it does not
    seem to mind what the CPU's are, although I noticed that system information
    is not available in the Menu option of the test. It has an upper limit of
    4GB, and there is no errors on the first 4GB. Great new's.

    The question is, how do the CPU's divide the Memory Pool between them and so
    which 4GB were tested. There is 4GB connected to each CPU, and I know with
    the motherboard (Tyan K8WE S2895) CPU 1 can access CPU 2's memory I am not
    sure if the same applies to CPU 2. The chipset is Nvidia nForce Pro 2200 for
    CPU1 and Nvidia nForce Pro 2050 for CPU2.

    Has anyone had experience with this.

  2. Hi, Mark.

    Have look in the old thread! 'Mercury' made, what might be, an interesting
    contribution.

  4. Ah, that was the 'DCOM' thread of your own creation. Sorry.
