Gigabyte Z77X/ Core i5 Build Freezing & Lock-ups - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just reporting that with the aforementioned configuration I have not experienced any more lockups in the past week. However, I have experienced "near lockups". I have had two incidents of just stuttering for a split second accompanied by the buzzing noise, but no lock ups this time. Once again while playing music while in a screensaver which is somewhat expected at this point, and once while playing a game (Red Orchestra 2). I suppose this is better? But its still technically happening.

What could have prompted this change in behavior? The biggest changes I made were changing the ram slots to (3,4) and turning off Turbo-boost in the bios so that my core clock does not deviate up or down from 3.4 GHz.

Honestly, can't really tell... do you have anything unusual in the Event Viewer?

Strange, I just received another system freeze. Here are some strange messages I have found in event viewer. They each show up with an error or warning icon.

The fourth is of course me hard-resetting my computer when it froze.
The rest occur quite frequently in the past events.

#4
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

#3
Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications. Please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/197571 for more information.

#2
The system firmware has changed the processor's memory type range registers (MTRRs) across a sleep state transition (S4). This can result in reduced resume performance.

#1
The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000.

Might any of theses point towards the problem?

Some weird stuff going on with the OS, I'm starting to think that it's not motherboard-related.

When you go into Device Manager, is there any yellow triangle?

Could you simply reinstall the OS (if you don't have too much data to move)? ~ or maybe stress test in Linux to rule out hardware fault?

I don't know where you managed to get a F19h BIOS, it's not on Gigabyte's site. Also beta BIOS is not that reliable. When I pushed my overclock too hard on F19e it wiped all my overclock settings and I had to remove CMOS battery to get it to clear voltages that wouldn't vary with load.

edit: from http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/28441-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios.html ?

Best bet is to reflash to F17 or whatever BIOS worked before.

I have re-installed the OS twice in the past. Maybe its a driver issue, those were more or less consistent between the Win7 and Win 8 installs.

I am re-flashing to F17, we'll see how this goes. I have yet to try rolling back the firmware. I think it was always at F18 or higher. I wish I knew exactly what caused this so I wouldn't have to wait for it to randomly happen again.

Just an update, it appears that the freezing was caused by my graphics card (GTX 650 TI). After taking it out and using the onboard graphics I experienced no freezing.
Explained it to EVGA and I'm currently RMA'ing the product.

Thank you to everyone in this thread, who gave their time to help me narrow this down!
