Also get the AMPS values for the +12, +5 and +3.3V rails of the power supply unit. You find them on the label inside the case.
The ranges found on the antec 350 watt power supply are as follows:
+12v = 1-15A
+3.3V = 5-22A
+5V = .5-21A
the mother board is DFI C51G-ML ; I am using the onboard video and sound; no agp or pci card;
maxtor 200 hd and usb dvd drive
I ran memtest86+ with the following results:
Both sticks tested out without errors in the first slot(with the second slot empty)...at least for the 3-4 hours I let it run.
In the second slot( with the first slot empty) I have plenty of errors on test #5 (and onone pass some errors on test #6). It only took the first pass to show these errors.
Does this sound like the board or the sempron 3000+ cpu?
This is the secord board... The first was an ABIT and I sent it back after it wouldnt take two sticks at a time.
Makes me think its the sempron.
besides the origianl failure to boot with both sticks in... I am getting random boots with memory in the second slot(first slot empty) ....no random boots yet when the memory is in slot 1
What's the expert opinion?
