AM2 Mother Board Problem? - Page 5

Humm, haven't had a hint of a problem with my two BFG 7900GT ocs (actually, that's the only way they make them. I think you may be thinking of a different brand than BFG, but maybe not, have you a link regarding the problems?).
im not sure where the reviews were from but it was on another forum and i think this one awhile ago, there were a couple of problems with these guys and when they first came out and alot of them got rma'd

i guess that bfg only had them in oc versions, the only reason that i ahve a bfg card was because i shorted out my msi card and wanted a pci card on the weekend and it was all that bestbuy carries so thats what i ended up with

I have a feeling it could be dodgy gfx, I had this with my old xfx 7800, it would just restart after a few hours of gaming.

kuba, yes, I hope its something simple and obvious as well, because as you note, the faulting process is long, tedious and not much, if any, fun. Unfortunately, its always the last thing we try, the last place we look, that reveals the source of the problem.

I note you say you are checking the BIOS for temps. That's virtually useless as by the time you can get back up into BIOS, the temps will have changed significantly if they are any bit out of whack. The only things you might detect would be really extreme conditions which I believe would already be obvious by the escape of the magic smoke, the release of the mystical flame and/or flash of the holy bolt of lightning.

Do get some monitoring programs so you will have real-time access to temps, voltages, fan speeds, etc. There's lots of freeware that is very good, ie - SpeedFan, CoreTemps, NXSensor, CPU-Z, Gcpuid. Its good stuff to have even if you don't have a crisis. I keep a couple of CDs with the latest versions of all my favorites so I can hand them out or install them at any time, anywhere.
so here's the update:
after i installed the new 7600gt, i left the computer overnight, and in the morning i got a BSoD, which said the following:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Technical Information:
***Stop: 0x0000000A (0x00000054,0x0000001c,0x00000001,0x80501ff4)
I hope this would help to someone, cause i have no clue.

i think i'll a buy a new sound card, because some guy at asus forums had similar problems as i do.

so any suggestion to what to do?

edit: windows prompted me an error report thing, that it unexpectedly terminated or whatever, but here's the link(and it sucks)

For lack of time and such while here at school, could you state your bios settings again, RAM timings, CPU Frequency, HT, etc? When I get on later I'll catch back up and try to help you out some more. I reall thought for a moment that it was the graphics card. Now however after ruling that out... I just don't know anymore, so get back with those things and I'll see what I can do in the meantime. Have a buddy here at school thats good at these things, moreso than I am. Rap Later...

Some can be fixes, check the MS bata base.
Others have had to do a full reolad to cure it, even me after trying every possible fix under the Sun

That MS message wasn't of much help. I hate to say it, but my suggestion would be to start in on the drill: Tear it down to basics and start the fault analysis process. You are well past the point of easy answers and obvious solutions.

I am pretty sure you have some sort of physical fault. It may be instigating software problems, but the base cause is very likely some physical problem. I say that just because software errors usually aren't time-based, as in going off after a particular period of time, unless there is an associated change in the software that's running: a program started, a program ending, a but of software such as a game getting to a particular part of the game. Usually time based problems have to do with heat. Just this is a really long time for that, its normally within the first hour unless there's a battery involved.

Whatever you do, make a plan first and then stick to it. There's nothing more useless than just randomly poking at a problem. Any plan (other than the plan to just randomly poke at the problem) is better than none. Just being organised is better and more efficient than not.

I'd also start log of everything that happens and everything you do.

OK
sorry for not replying, luckily i was too busy therefore i wasn't able to do any further testing.
Luckily...
Yesterday i was removing the 7600gt to give it to my friend, put my 7900gt back: i accidentally unplugged the front usb and some back usb cords and left them unplugged.
I restart the system, now it's running for 12 hours... /knocking on wood/

Any ideas?
