Weird motherboard errors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is dupe, my other title was misleading.

I had an IRQL BSOD last night after running FAH for 8 hours and watching movies, surfing, etc. without a hiccup. I decided to try testing the memory before working on a driver conflict. It tested great overnight, no errors in a 10 hour walltime. My memory is fine, I'm willing to bank.

It wouldn't reboot after memtest though, got stuck on A0 post code (failed to initialize mouse). I tweaked the lane voltages, and that rebooted. Then however, same issue: cannot find BOOTMGR.

This leads me to believe it's a hardware thing rather than drivers, since the error is right here in BIOS. I've tried removing my SATA DVD to no avail, though I have never had a problem with the lite-on drive int he first place.

I've checked the obvious, the connections and BIOS configuration is okay. Nada. I reset to default optimimum values, reset the boot priority, nada.

Last time leaving the system off overnight fixed this, so I suspect something thermal, especially since my recent overheat on the CPU. I'm glad I have an RMA board coming. Still though, I wish I could isolate this...

My laptop feels like a FEMA trailer right now. I want my house back!

What in hell? I just switched the drive boot priority to one of my slaves, and it booted... Why is bootmgr on a different drive than my vista root?

Switched board drivers to the latest for mainboard and display at 3dguru. Problem seems related to movie watching and the 9.64 nvidia board drivers. So far so good, as I can fold and watch blu-rays at the same time.
