Help with new AMD A8-3870K System !

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hi I am new to this but I figured someone could help me out with a new build. I built a new system and after installing windows 7 it keeps shutting down and windows will say it has recovered from a system failure. I don't know much about these new APU's and I need to figure out what is going on. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. I will list the specs below of the system.

AMD A8-3870K
Gigabyte GA-A55M-DS2
Kingston 4GB DDR3 1600
Corsair 400 watt PSU
WD Caviar Blue 500GB Sata HDD
Sony DVD Burner Sata

probably the ram, run a mem test to rule it out. Run it for at least 7 hours.

you could also use prime95's blend test which also tests the RAM, I recommend doing that over using memtest

have u overclocked it ???
mainly it must be because of ur RAM try running ]memtest 86+ in windows or here is the iso file mount the iso on your USB or a CD run memtest overnight if it gives errors u need to RMA the RAMs

OR
if u have overclocked it
then 0x1E = increase vcore mainly redface.gif

I do not have anything overclocked all settings are stock. I am running memtest right now and letting it run for a while. RAM shows 1333 in bios when I try to put it to 1600 it boots and says that system failed to start due to overclocking. Thanks everyone I will try those and see if it is the RAM.

BSOD Codes for i7 x58 chipset
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore...have to test to see which one it is
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1A = Memory management error. It usually means a bad stick of Ram. Test with Memtest or whatever you prefer. Try raising your Ram voltage
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r
BSOD Codes for SandyBridge
0x124 = add/remove vcore or QPI/VTT voltage (usually Vcore, once it was QPI/VTT)
0x101 = add more vcore
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency add DDR3 voltage or add QPI/VTT
0x1E = add more vcore
0x3B = add more vcore
0xD1 = add QPI/VTT voltage
“0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances”
0X109 = add DDR3 voltage
0x0A = add QPI/VTT voltage
Please feel free to comment, advise, correct, and add to this list. I am not the original author and will not take credit for it. I simply thought that it should be posted by itself. I am only repeating the info that I got here at OCN. This is currently for Intel i7 systems, but I would like for everyone to help me set it up for other systems as well.
Thanks, just giving back,

Hope that Helps thumb.gif
and lastly WelCome To OCN !!!!!!! Enjoy ur Stay wink.gif

You may require a DRAM voltage raise to rated (probably 1.65V) for full stability.

I checked Kingston and your right it needs 1.65V but after I did I still get the system failed to start due to overclock !I ran a boot-able memtest and it found no problems. Should I drop the memory to 1066 and see if it is stable at that speed ? Should I leave it at 1333 and run the memtest in windows ?
