[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 946

post #9451 of 9641
I've got a phenom ii x4 965 processor. My ram is Gskill 1600 MHz 2 Gb each, DDR3, coming in at 9-9-9-24 and 1.5 V. No overclocking.

I've got two crossfired 5770's. I will be taking pictures of my BIOS tonight and uploading them later.

I've tested every RAM slot with the current windows 7 os, and each one is working individually. I've tried unganged and ganged, neither works with any combination.

Only one stick of ram works, and it's one of the Gskills (either one). I've bought Kingston 1600 (KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX) that I was planning on upgrading my kit with (along with a new GPU and processor). None of the kingston ram works with my current settings, even when I go in and manually change the BIOS settings (voltage and latency)... Only one of the Gskills works at a time, but both the Gskill brand and the Kingston work in my friend's computer, with memtest running 10+ scans each with no errors. With the Kingston RAM, Windows fails to boot each time and it tries to "fix itself", with freezing occurring each time.

Now it's looking like perhaps I need a new motherboard... But I still want to work out what I did wrong!!!

Thanks for reading this over! I greatly appreciate it!

I have the 790FX-GD70, and I recognize that it's a bit outdated... BUT...
So here's the deal... I'm not an utter noob when it comes to computers, but I'm completely befuddled by my current situation.
I recently installed windows 7 on my computer. To do so, I had to take out one stick of my G.skill 2 gb 1333 RAM (I don't get why). Now that windows 7 has been installed, I can't reinstall the RAM I took out. I bought new RAM, but every time I attempt to boot Windows with more than 2 gb, I don't get very far. The system says "Starting WIndows", and it stalls... permanently. It doesn't move forward. That, or it restarts and continues a vicious cycle of restarting. I should probably mention that I installed windows 7 over windows xp, with Windows xp being the 32 bit version and windows 7 being the 64 bit.
I've run memtest on each stick of ram individually, and no errors show up. But the minute I have both sticks of RAM in there it doesn't boot. Each and every motherboard slot is fine (More than 10+ test repetitions on both).
I've got the most current BIOS on the board, and I was able to have 4 gb of RAM on the 32 bit xp version I upgraded from with no problems (although it wasn't fully recognized).
I've used both sticks together in a friend's computer, and both work great (together or separate). I don't understand what's going on. Can someone help me out? I'll post pictures of my BIOS settings if it'll help... Honestly, most of it is on auto, and the 4 settings I would mess around with should be implemented by the board itself... 9-9-9-24.
Please please please help!!!!

I had exactly same problem with '2x2GB Dynet 1333 9-9-9-27 1.65v'. It was failing to load 64 bit OS. And in cpuz within 32bit win7 I saw those memories were not running in dual channel even if they were fitted into right slots. I'd tested with different slots, nothing happened. Both memories had same timings, frequency, voltage and part no. But they were unable to load 64 bit OS. Memory IC on RAM's PCB had 'Dynet' written on it. I had been tweaking bios settings for over three months, but nothing solved. Hence I had to replace it with Adata and then adata were running at dual channel with no 64 bit crash. I couldn't understand why 64 bit os failed to start with those 'dynet' memories on gd70. If your RAM is not running at dual channel too in 32bit os then better replace it.

If anyone wants anything in particular that isn't included here, please let me know and I'll upload. These are the settings that I try introducing new RAM to (not mixed, however... either all kingston or all Gskill). Am I doing something wrong?


Also, thanks sumitlian. I've ordered a new mobo, I figured it was an old specimen anyways, but it's STILL frustrating as I haven't overclocked on it (as tempted as I was when I first started out).

These are the RAM modules. Blue is Kingston, Red is GSkill.

@jmgarris

hey ! all setting seems fine here in bios, just download CPU-Z and goto it's memory information tab and check what is written beside 'Channel #' in any 32 bit operating system (win xp/win 7) to know whether they are running in single or dual channel.

Doing a clean install of Windows 7 I want to do it in ACHI mode because of the advantage ACHI gains for SSD's:

http://expertester.wordpress.com/2008/07/24/ahci-vs-ide-%E2%80%93-benchmark-advantage/

Is it the E-SATA Controller Mode that should be set to ACHI or the RAID Mode, or both?

E-SATA is External Sata controller, so if you were connecting your SSD as an external drive that should be wise to set it up there on enabled. Otherwise just select disabled and (forgot correct menu name) switch in Onboard SATA controller from IDE to AHCI or if you have RAID to RAID wink.gif
Remember about AHCI or RAID drivers (usually installed during WIN 7 installation) but IIRC AHCI drivers could be installed afterwards (I mean ... after you install your OS).

hello everyone, been having a pesky problem lately. when my computer powers down fully it has trouble powering up again. when i power it on either it freezes instantly and the hdd light stays on or it boots but the built in sata controller is then unable to locate any drives. in the second situation i can get into windows but then some of my drives dont show up. all the sata ports are in use right now. whats weird though is that if i get that searching message and i hit the reset button everything starts working and it will load up all the drives. this problem seems to stem from cold boots only. it can also happen when i sleep my computer. when i resume from sleep the screen stays blank and the hdd light stays on without flashing.450
