post #41 of 51
Have you tried booting up with one stick of ram in another slot? Maybe the first slot is broken?

I just updated the bios on my old P5N-E SLI motherboard and it was the simplest thing I've ever done. Just loaded the bin file on a fat32 usb stick and used the built in flash utility.

Just don't touch anything while its doing its thing.

let us know how the bios flash goes!
post #44 of 51
Yes that flash might help. I used to have lot's of random BSOD's of a Gigabyte p35 and a q6600. I fiddled with it for over a month, then tried a bios update out of desperation and... it solved everything!

Problem soved ...at least it appears so.

Up date the BIOS was the fix. My BIOS predated the earliest release. Wow no wonder there was issues. So back to testing.

Update BIOS.

Retest.

One stick of ram

One graphics card

One monitor

You tube videos 1 Hour no lockup smile.gif

BF3 on ultra 1.5 Hours no lockup smile.gif

GPU 61C
CPU 51C

A very very BIG thank you for the thoughts and insight.Can't believe the amount of input. thumb.gif

Any other test I should do before Reinstalling the rest of the Ram ,My second 7970 and the other two monitors?

You have passed the test of patience and now understand that hundreds of dollars worth of hardware are useless when a 2 minute costless fix does the trick. Have fun with your setup.

No other tests required before putting everything back in, glad you got your bios updated and rig up and running smile.gif
