"Warning! Now system is in safe mode" -- Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, first time poster here, I'm seeking some help with my setup!

I'm a little bit lost on this one. The only time I'm getting this message every time my system wakes up from being put into sleep mode. Not when it is first booting from being completely off. Here is my setup

XFX 680iLT-SLi
Intel C2D e6750 - 2.66ghz @ 3.4ghz (previously at 3.6ghz, but I dropped it because of this message. That didn't seem to help)
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4gb 4-4-4-12 / 800mhz (I was trying to overclock this a bit prior to this message)
PNY GTX 465 unlocked to 470
COOLER MASTER RP-600-PCAR eXtreme Power 600W

Not sure what other info you guys might want, but I'd like to figure this out. So far I've been ok with just manually going into the BIOS screen when it gets halted with the Warning, pressing F10, and letting it reboot itself. If I do, it will properly show that its booting at 3.4ghz rather than 2.8, and 4-4-4-12, rather than 5-4-4-18 or something.

Should I just replace the battery on the motherboard or something? I'd assume if that were the issue, it would be doing this on normal start up as well.

I do believe I updated the BIOS somewhat recently, but it didn't seem to give me any errors during it. I'm wondering if maybe the BIOS update caused it to pick up on some error that it wasn't picking up on before? Any help or pointing in the right direction would be much appreciated! biggrin.gif

Does the system actually reboot when it wakes up from sleep mode? That is only way it could change to safe mode from sleep mode. Try putting all your bios settings back to stock and put the computer back in "sleep mode" and see if the problem persists.

Aww crap, you're right, I never even realized this was unusual. It does go through the full process a reboot would. I just set everything to the motherboard defaults, and when it wakes from sleep mode, everything just pops back up as it was in about 5 seconds. Before it had the full POST and everything. So it seems like it was the overclock that was doing it, but I'll try reloading that, to see if it was really the problem. Not sure if I may have triggered something else in my BIOS that caused this before.
