Freezing Problems with FX-6100

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys,

Yesterday, for what I can see no possible cause, my computer now starts to freeze at any given time for a couple of seconds. When this freezing has occurred I've noticed that one of my CPU Cores has spiked to 100% briefly. I had noticed at one point when it froze, it came back and i saw my GPU 1 had spiked to around 60%. A couple days prior to this my computer did freeze and I had to restart via the power button to bring it back and at this point my GPU 2 was at 100%. I never had that problem again so I just dismissed it. The only things that I can remember doing before my recent problem was purchasing and installing a new game from steam, which has now been uninstalled and not solved the problem, and replacing the ethernet cable in the back which was already in the system beforehand. The CPU i have is an AMD FX-6100 on a Gigabyte GA990XA-UD3. 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Ram, Corsair GS800W PSU and 2x XFX 6870 in Crossfire. If anything else is need knowing then I will post it but i would like to see this problem gone. I dont really care if i have to reinstall windows to do acheive this, but this is seeming to be a problem that will persist after this.

Have you:

1. Run a full system scan?
2. Booted with just one stick of RAM in different slots?
3. Reset the CMOS jumper?
4. Tried each of the two GPUs individually?

I did run a full system scan with microsoft security essentials. Haven't tried any of the other options. Ill get started on them now! What do I do with the CMOS Jumper? I'm a noob like that

Also my friend told me to run the memory diagnostics thing in windows and that apparently gave me no errors

Step 1:
Disconnect the main AC power by either shutting off the power button on the back of your power supply or simply pulling out the power cable.

Step2:
Wait a minute to be sure all the capacitors and coils have discharged.
To be really safe you can press the power button which will drain the capacitors for sure.

Step3:
Move the CMOS jumper to the clear position, this is usually done from moving its original 1-2 position to 2-3 position (meaning from pin 1-2 to pin 2-3)

Step4:
Wait a minute to be sure the CMOS has been cleared.

Step 5:
Return the CMOS jumper to it's original position.

Step6:
Restore power to the system.

It resets all system/BIOS settings to factory default.

Ok, i have tried each of my ram stick in every slot and they all booted up fine but the problem still persists. Also, the cmos jumper you described and that ive seen mostly isnt on my motherboard, i just have two pins without a jumper.

Am i right in saying that i can just touch these with a flat head screwdriver? ive seen that method for turning on motherboard

I just booted up on my second gpu and first boot froze after login. it wouldnt unfreeze so i turned off and rebooted and its booted fine.

Just rebooted again and the screen started flashing. when it stopped it came up in systray with "Display Driver AMD Driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

Right I've now done all of the 4 things you've mentioned and there seems to be no improvement on the freezing.

If your motherboard has an on board video card, take your main one out and boot to see if it happens.

If that doesn't fix it from what i can tell your issue could be RAM, CPU, or HDD (usually it's HDD, but us overclockers can have issues with CPUs tongue.gif)
