Help. Random reboots. (PX Engine?)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I woke up today to see that my computer had rebooted while I was sleeping. When I get loged into Windows I sent the error report and Windows Error Reporting tells me that "PX Engine has stopped working properly." I go to the Roxio website using the link provided and install the PX Engine software. Once I restart the computer lasts about 5 minutes before crashing again. Its happened twice in 10 minutes so far. I have no idea what this PX engine is or how to disable it. This is on my sig rig. At the time this occurred I was folding if that makes a difference. 1 thread on GPU and 1 on CPU.

Thanks,
Ty

You can uninstall it by looking for "PXEngine" in the HKLM\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion \\Uninstall subkeys. You should see an uninstall string there, which you can use to uninstall. Beware though, uninstalling it will probably make; whatever installed it in the first place, quit functioning.

So I had one reboot where it said it was a ram issue when windows restarted. I backed everything down to stock (except graphics card) and its been running stable for 2 hours now. I've only had the ram in this system for 2 weeks but it passed memtest at 1000 @ 5-5-5-15 2.0v which it is rated to run per EPP. I had to manually set the timings and voltage to get it to run at that speed. I couldn't get it stable today untill I backed it all the way down to 800 @5-5-5-18 1.8v which is JEDEC setting #2. I had an aching suspicion this morning when this started that it was a hardware issue. Should I throw my old G. Skill ram in and see what happens? I never messed with the timings on that ram as it ran fine at 850 mhz @ 5-5-5-15 1.8v and I didn't see the need to push it further. The only reason I ran the new ram so hard is that I feel it should run what it is rated at. What would cause this to become unstable? Could I have hurt something?

Thanks,
Ty
