malfunction with msi 890fxa-gd65

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hi guys... i have a problem that i cannot solve for days now....
one week ago i bought an msi motherboard and a 1100t cpu
installed windows normally with no problems but a bit after installing all the needed drivers windows suddenly halts with no blue screen or anything just freezes (linux does the same so dont tell me to change drivers), i updated my bios at 18.3 from 18.2 messed a bit with unganged mode and 1/2t of memory speed but the results are the same.... just freezes while cpu temp is at arround 40-50, overdrive stability test works for 1-2 secs only and then freezes the pc.....

i have changed HDD and removed anything not needed from the pc (like the xfi and the dvd drive)

any suggestions?

You have a stability problem. Check the RAM settings, make sure it is set to rated. What kit?

I hope you're trying to use Windows 7 32-bit, as 2GB just won't cut the 64-bit version.

Try to run your RAM according to the sticker on the sticks, you may need a higher voltage than what "Auto" is supplying, hence the instability. The timings may also be way off the rated timings, so make sure you manually set them in your BIOS. It should only take a few seconds to change them and maybe a few minutes to learn which numbers correspond to which setting.

its the 64bit version of win7 actually... but i had 64bit version more than a year with the same memory modules i cant use 32bit since i need it for coding and there are some problems between 32/64... anyway... i actually have the motherboard with me since i decided to return it at the shop so they can test its stability, u suggest to take it back and do the tweaks that u said or better return it?

Well I would never recommend to run things in Auto, unless you know what that Auto setting actually is and you mean to run it at that speed/voltage. If the shop can help test stability and get it working, it might be a good chance to ask them what settings you should use. Otherwise, I'm sure there are tons of members that have your board and can help you with the correct settings.

Similar problem here assassin21. May or may-not be related, but my system hangs for a second then just compeltely turns off. I'm trying to debug as well. Hard to believe MSI sent out a shipment of horrible boards.

those motherboards are very reliable and seem to be difficult to burnout. Using it myself with 0 issues. RAM was my main problem. Got a decent set of RAM for rather cheap. 2GB is rather small amount for 64-bit OS, but anything over 8GB is a waste unless you are doing video editing. Have you tried installing 32-but and testing the RAM to see if that is the issue? A bit time consuming, but it will give you something to test.
