Help, My System crashes even at stock clock now

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Need some expert advise here. I started OCing a few days ago but have never exceeded the recommended limits for my hardware, and now all the sudden my whole system crashes in an instant and reboots.

I thought it was instability caused by OCing so I went back to stock clock and still about every fifteen minutes or so it crashes and reboots. I don't get it.

Any advise.

Have you made ssure to turn down all voltage and set everything in bios to default? I don't know why it would just shut down out of nowhere except if it was overheating, or, there was not enough power.

Run all updated virus & spyware apps. Go online and run similar apps to take advantage of multiple manufacturer signatures and definition lists.

I once made the same mistake... I overclocked then I experienced intermittent shutdowns so I reverted back to the original settings (FSB, dividers, PCI-X and PCI speeds, voltages, etc...)
But my system still crashed every few minutes. It turned out I had forgotten ram timings at a very tight setting.
My ram is rated 3-3-3-8 @ 200MHz and it was set to 3-2-2-7. Once I restored that everything went back in place and my machine was back to running smoothly.
I doubt you have permanently damaged a component in your system unless you drastically increased voltages. Double check all the settings.

OK Ive run all my virus and spyware programs, but i don't think that was the problem. My whole system is at default.

As for adjusting the timing back to stock I don't know what to do. I never have found a way to adjust ram timings manually. My ram seems to change timing automatically depending on my current clock settings.

Right now with everything else at stock my ram timing says (2.5-3-2-5) before when I was OCed at 3.75 Ghz my clock said (2-3-3-8).

A friend suggested that the ability to manually change ram timings is a feature only available on certain Ram or certain mobo's.

So can anyone suggest a way i can adjust my ram timings manually? Is there a software that will allow me to do it manually?

a jumper is normally located near the battrey, normally there are 3 pins and the jumper is located on the first 2, take out the jumper and put it on the 2nd and 3rd pin, that should clear your cmos and reset everything to normal. or else go into the bios and chose 'load optomized defaults'

also I just looked at gigabytes' site for your board and has something called MIB (Memory Intelligent Booster) lol, have Will Smith zap that item in the bios and if it doesn't work clear cmos.

There's a software that will allow you to set the memory timings from Windows.
It's called "RightMark Memory Analyzer 3.6"

1) Get it at http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...Analyzer.shtml
2) Extract the compressed file
3) Open the file timings.dat with notepad (do not double click on it !)
4) Scroll down to the line that says "Quick-set timings...". There's another line immediately below it that says "#timings 2.0 2 2 5".
Uncomment this second line and adjust the timings to the desired numbers (in your case I'm guessing it's something like 2.5-3-3-8 or even 3-3-3-8) So you should see timings 3 3 3 8
5) Double click on timings.exe
6) Restart your system

Let me know if it works. I've tried it and I was able to modify timings right from the OS.
