    Error C1 on an Abit motherboard

    Hi everyone.
    First thing in the morning, my computer is starting to have problems when I turn it on. It repeats a long beep every few seconds along with the error code 'C1' on the motherboard. In order to fix it this morning I had to remove one of my 512mb PC6400 bars of Crucial Ballistix memory. However, the problem was fixed before by merely turning it off at the mains and on again (both memory sticks remained plugged into the motherboard).
    Does anyone know of this being a common issue with this type of motherboard? (Abit AB9 pro)

    I think that C1 indicates a memory problem (apparently this often happens if the sticks have been oc), go into your bios and check the settings are correct for the mem you have, if they are at the correct speed, then try underclocking them and see if this works. If it does solve the problem, then you could either stay this way or send them back to crucial for a swap/refund as they don't run at advertised speed.

    If the above doesn't work, or make a diff, then give crucial a call (even if you didn't buy direct from them), they are an excellent Co. to deal with and will prob be able to help you out.

    I don't overclock any of my stuff, so I know it's not that.
    I probably will just give them a call to see if it can be swapped.

    check the RAM voltage recommended by the manufacturer against what is being set (quite probably the JEDEC 1.8V).

    Also try running memtest on the RAM, Micron D9 is prone to failure.

    Hi...I think Buff has got it here...its almost certainly a RAM voltage issue. I had the same problem with my RAM (which needs 2.2v) the default from the board is 1.8v.

    Good luck

    I set the correct voltage when I bought the memory.
    I sent the motherboard back, and they have thankfully found an error with the board, so it'll be replaced.
    Thanks for all your help.
