I encoded four movies last night and everything went fine plus I get no BSOD's while I'm using the computer. The computer runs really good while it's on.
I checked all connections and a voltages are all fine.
I'm using a E7500 CPU with Kingston DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) value ram.
In Bios everything is in Optimized State.
Performance Enchance --Standard
mCH frequency Latch --Auto
System Memory Muli --Auto
Mem Freq 800
Cas Latency Time --6
Load Line Calib -Disabled
All Volts are set to --Normal
No-Execute Memory -Enabled
Dram Freq 400.MHz
6 6 18 tRFC-52
Command Rate 2T
I'm wondering if the board just doesn't like the value ram but the system is running great with it except for that long beep at bootup.
i would....... switch psu switch to off, turn on.... go into bios save your profile of your OC.
clear cmos.... then set memory to default timings
sounds like a memory issue
