occasional probs w/ starting windows

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
about every 3-4 times i reboot my computer something strange happens. either my graphic card driver is not loaded properly and the resolution is way off, or the desktop wont show properly and all the shortcut icons wont display.

however, i will just reboot the computer and its like nothing at all happened, it just comes back like its supposed to. very strange.

anybody have any idea why this could happen?

i do oc almost to my rams max and i was wondering if this could cause the problem. however, it can go thru many cycles of memtest and never show an error.

anybody got a clue?

You might try upping the voltage to your RAM if you haven't done that already. Don't go past 2.8v though, that's a bit high and might cause more instability problems.
