Get error on Memtest86 - How to solve the issue?
Posted 30 June 2012 - 02:16 PM
I have Windows 95 and i love it. I need to get my computer back to action agin. I will only make it work beacuse i will only play good old awsome games on it.
But the problem is memtest.
I have NEW memory but i get the same old error if i use an old memory. I only this error. ONLY THIS.
Everything works on it. I got everything orginal too. Internet works. But internet Explorer 3 is not good to surf with.
I can run the the computer, but it VERY unstable. If i install like Half-life, i get bluescreen.
I think it has to be with the bios, but i cannot find the update drivers.

You can get SDRAM 100-pin from china. Aliexpress.com

What do you mean?
I have 200 mhz.

I have 200 mhz.
Your Processor is 200 MHz, but your FSB (Front Side Bus) is probably 66 MHz. As of now, there are two possibilities. You are using the wrong speed RAM, or your motherboard is busted. You will need PC66 or PC100 RAM. What speed RAM are you using?

Vectra Manual 338kb
I don't know what you paid for the new stick of RAM but you can probably pick up a working Pentium III computer for as little as $1. Windows 95 can live quite happily on it without going overboard on the CPU speed.

Google this exactly as you see it -
"vectra ve 5/xxx series 4" manual
These are the specific manuals.
In the Technical Reference Manual it states
SDRAM double interline memory modules (DIMMs). The HP Vectra VE 5/
xxx Series 4 PC supports three modules of SDRAM (synchronous dynamic
random access memory). With the 64 MB module from HP, this gives a
maximum total capacity of 192 MB.
In the case of 66 MHz PL bus operation, memory accesses have a timing
pattern of 6-1-1-1 for a page-hit. This degrades to 10-1-1-1 for a page-miss.
seated on the system board in a zero-insertion-force (ZIF) socket 7. Only
upgrades that are pin compatible with the original processor, manufactured
by Intel, are supported.
P54CS chips working at 166 and 200 MHz require between 3.45 and 3.60 V.
A VRE voltage regulator, integrated on the system board, actively derives
the voltage from the 3.3 V, 5 V and 0 V outlets of the power supply.
is multiplied to 66 MHz by a phase locked loop. This is further scaled by an
internal clock multiplier within the processor. For example, the 200 MHz
processor multiplies the 66 MHz system clock by three.

Thanks for providing a quote from a known linked-to PDF though...
A big list of Manuals, etc.
