Re: memory board 5 error

Hi, is it also true that the OS does not see the memory?

Are the DIMMs the same? I mean if you take working DIMMs and put in there - is it still the same problem?

In survey29.8.11.html the 8GB DIMMs are seen in memory board 5.

However "Configured Memory Clock Speed" is either not set or at 800MHz while the other DIMMs are at 1067MHz.

Would it be possible for you to swap the memory boards around? Like try board 1 in slot 5?

Re: memory board 5 error

Error message says system board - maybe that's it then if you've replaced everything else?

Re: memory board 5 error

If it's possible to configure it anywhere, it's in the BIOS.
I don̈́'t have a DL580 so can't tell you what the options are inside there.
