I used a HP Lightscribe DVDRW DL USB Drive to install Windows 7, but I've now intalled XP it doesn't crash but fails Prime95 and it sometimes passes after next restart
Yeh I think it is the RAM too.
The first time both RAM was in A1 & B2 blue slots, now they are in A2 & B2 White slot, and I' am having blue screen & crashes in windows 7 evening changing the slots,
I did test it with one RAM it still crashed but didn't try each slots, because I know it will crash again.
Is there anyway at all to make these RAM's work with correct timing and voltages, would I have edit other parts of the BIOS too?
There must be a definative way to defeat the evil Black Dragons lol
I wish I had a spare different DDR3 RAM but I don't, so I' am thinking about setting them up correctly in BIOS, so I don't have to buy a different batch.
I wish Asus should begin giving latest updated BIOS every month! Why do they just make and sell pricey motherboards and let users suffer???
A heavyily priced motherboard should get regular update for the BIOS, what is the point in paying that much money and you don't get ultimate ASUS BIOS update services every so and so??? it can't be that hard for ASUS because they are best motherboard experts???
Honestly I'am happy someone has replied back to me, because I live in United Kingdom and I have to wait a day just to see if someone has replied to me, really appriciated appreciated!
I used to have that problem on my Asus Striker II Formula which didn't boot up because I had volt it up and correct the timing, it did work but after a couple of month, I think my ram slowly died, so I volted more into it and it booted up and couple weeks gone again etc. finally it completely died, I go so mad I volted because I wanted to play my game with speed i.e 2.30v then 2.35v, 2.40v, 2.50v, 2.60v and finally 2.80 or more can't remember then poof dead. They were called Adata Vitesta Extreme Edition DDR2 800-1066.
I upgraded to Asus Rampage Extreme and move all my component onto it except the RAM because DDR3.
Asus with a non Qualified Vendors List RAMs, are just a nightmare when you don't have a spare RAM it drives you nuts.
