New Parts, Lots of Problems (Freezing)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just as my luck would have it, i have had soo many weird problems in the past week with my computer. I got an E6420, P5N-E SLI, and 2x1GB G.Skill HKs, i put those in, then my computer would freeze after a minute or 2, sometimes booting up. I figured i just needed to update my BIOS, so i finally got that done today (i had so many problems doing that, nothing worked right). I boot it up and for some reason linux is all ****ed up. really weird errors when it tries to boot. i got vista reactivated and its all weird. something with my videocard. But its still freezing! What the hell. I updated to the most recent bios, excluding the beta one. Does anyone have any ideas? Im so pissed. I just want my damn computer to be working again. Think its a bad part? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I havent touched any settings btw, no OCing yet.

What were you using before? The linux kernel may not be seeing your processor, as it is configured for a different architecture.

If you've updated the BIOS and are getting video errors when in the operateing system you could try uninstalling and then reinstalling your graphics card drivers. Sometimes a BIOS update will make the operateing system think that the adapter cards have been switched around, though this is rare, it could be happening in your case.

Another possible cause could be bad or undervolting memory. Run memtest86+ to check for errors and try manually setting the defaul timings and voltage for your particular DIMMs via the BIOS.

The main problem i have is the freezing issue. I tried reinstalling linux and it froze during that. Any more ideas?

I dont think its overheating. The CPU and Mobo temps were 43 in the bios, but it was hot as hell outside. Im going to try a different harddrive. I tried one and as soon as Windows started loading the mouse and keyboard stopped working, its like they froze up. It booted to the login screen, i just couldnt do anything. Ill see what happens with this one.

Well i got a brand new HDD to try, and it froze installing linux.

Do you think its the processor? Its gotta be a bad part, but i have no idea which.

If i am in the bios, is that just using the mobo? Does it use the processor at all? I am going to leave it in the bios and see if it freezes. If it doesnt do you think its the processor? If it does freeze i guess its the mobo?

did you apply thermal paste? Get an infrared heat temp sensor and see if it overheats, if it hangs while booting im thinking is the mobo. Change the mobo?

now that i think of it, what are your timings on the ram, my computer was doing the same thing earlier when i was playing with them. when you upgraded your ram did you restore the timings?
