Have you tried downloading the BIOS file and using @BIOS? I know that when you download a BIOS, it gives you a seperate program to use to flash.

I was folding fine with 2xtext versions. Then I tried GPU folding and the madness insued. The comp started out ok, turned in a couple few WUs...then my wife tells me the living room was bright when she got up to feed the baby during the night. Sure enough...the comp was in a reboot cycle. After further investigation, I'm pretty sure it was gpu driver + gpu folding issue. So, long story short, I gave up on GPU, rolled back to straight up nvidia 175.1(whatever, 9 i think), and all seemed well.

So, then I realized that my system could probably do one smp, which would be better ppd than 2 text. I turned in one WU, then crashes and BSODs. Kept trying, turned in one more, then I got a crazy BSOD that resulted in booting back up with absolute minimum video settings, and no access to the video card. I didn't have time to mess with it, so I shut down and left if for a few days.

I booted it back up, and it worked, said it had recovered from a serious registry problem, and had (gone back to a previous version or something). I tried SMP one more time, and got a reboot at some point, it never turned in the WU (but I think it was completed and tried to turn it in, I can't remember all the erros). I'm also now having consistent IE crashes. It just sort of freezes up, and I either have to bring up the task manager to kill it or wait awhile while it dies.

settings: cpuV - ~1.26 (1.2 load); RAM 2.0(4? - +4 in bios); mch +.1, fsb + .1, 9x400
winxp sp3, running avg basic and zonealarm, wireless nic, everything else is in sig. i'm running the gpu at stock until i get this all figured out.

Sorry for the saga, but i figure the more info I give to go on, the more likely it'll get figured out. Please help me get this figured out so I can game n fold thanks y'all!
Doesn't sound like system instability, but if it is, try CPU voltage: 1.3v, RAM 2.1v, and FSB at +.2v. If that doesn't work, you can try +.2v on MCH, but I don't know anything about folding. It might be something else.

My other suggestion is posing in the Folding section of OCN. It sounds more Folding related than mobo related to me, especially since you tried folding with GPU then CPU (I think....).

It's a BIOS flashing programing by Gigabyte. It should of came with your driver disk for the motherboard. You can also download it off the Gigabyte site too.

If you go into your mobo bios you can use Q-FLASH to upgrade your bios.
Download the latest bios from Gigabyte website then save the bios file on a floppy disc. Here's the instructions on how to use Q-FLASH:

@Rpg2 thanks! I posted here because you all would specifically know the settings on the board and perhaps see something that stands out as being off or just not right. I will however take your suggestion and report in the folding section.

I was stable on 12 hours orthos long before I started folding. I can't remember the bios V setting for the cpu, but it was 1.184 load. So I've already upped the volts a smigde, I'll try a bit more, but I'm only running @3.6...not exactly shooting the moon here. I'll try the other voltages, especially the memory. Would it be worthwhile to loosen mem timings instead? I've got the single sided ballistix, so oc'ing them is probably a no go.

Also, I'm running 9x400, should I up the multi to 9.5 in order to back down the fsb a bit? Not sure if that might help. The registry errors make me think something more sinister is afoot....but I'm still justanewb

rep to ya for the help rpg2, tks again!

Might be a bad BIOS flash. Try using the computer normally, if nothing works normally, then try different RAM. If not that, it's something else.

Kernel related problems, to me, sound OS related, but this problem occurred due to a BIOS flash so it would probably have something to do with it. Sorry if that was a bit confusing.

The P35 NB shouldn't have any problems with 400FSB, but you can always do that. If you clear Orthos for 12 hours, you should be good. Try Orthos for 18-24 hours. If you pass that and then get stability problems folding, then it's definitely not your OC causing instability/problems.

For the RAM, up the voltage to 2.1v (check HWmonitor in Windows). For the RAM timings, you can do 5-5-5-15 for stability, but it shouldn't be necessary. Try different RAM (1066Mhz) just to be sure it's not the problem. I don't know if Folding uses up a lot of RAM.
