Unofficial TF8200 A2+ Thread **Updated 06/27** - Page 8

post #71 of 110
Akira, make sure when you start overclocking your memory that you test with memtest first. Please do this before going into Windows and running another stress test. Booting into Windows with an unstable memory overclock can lead to disaster. To many times have I seen operating systems go south because of this. I usually test each individual timing with memtest. I always run tests 5 and 8 each for at least an hour (just to be safe).

Good luck and good job on the OC

Akira, not particularly. Reason being because of cooling. Since the device is so compact it's very difficult to get adequate cooling inside. Not to mention you'll probably have to use a piece of software to modify the frequency speeds ect. In most cases software overclocking can lead to data corruption.

Good luck

Good thing for us, memtest is built into our bios. Under the "T-Series" tab just enable "Integrated Memory Test".

well, everything was going well with the puter then i started to get a delayed write error in windows. then a couple of days passed and then as i am turning the puter on after post it comes up to an error of delayed write and an error that my boot magic boot loader failed and said PT error. would this be because of the overclock or should i just reformat and partition the harddrive? If i need to reformat should i use a different program then Partition Magic to partition and boot loader?

Akira, see my last post. Have you tried running a Memtest diagnostic on your memory? Make sure to run tests 5 and 8.

What is the brand/model of your 120GB hard drive? I'd also recommend running a full surface scan on the drive if you haven't already. Sorry if this was already mentioned.

Are you able to install the operating system without using any type of partitioning software?

Let us know

Good luck

mem test is good. i decided not to change or try to over clock the mem. well, the odd thing is as soon as i restart everything is fine for a couple of days then it will do it again.i usually leave my puters on for 3-7 days at a time, but i wont leave a game up for any more then 3 days. I have 2 different win xp's installed. The straight basic which was purchases and a thinned out one. i have 2 computers with the straight windows ant it worked well except the last time i installed it on the 2 computers....they will error installing the same apps that worked b 4.??????? i just though...this is after i upgraded to sp3. i will prob reinstall windows with sp2 that worked just fine.
