Crash On Load After S3 Sleep

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had power management set to never sleep, so I didn't notice it before. I had what I thought was a completely stable overclock until I turned the sleep setting back on.

Once the computer woke up from S3, I started a game (one with a light load) and it crashed after several minutes. There was nothing special about what I was doing, it was a FPS and I had been over the same spot several times, etc.

This happens consistently each time I wake the rig and play a game.

I kind of suspect that its a RAM issue, possibly with voltage drop during wake. Now that I think about it, it might even be GPU, seeing as how it only seems to be 3D games.

What are your thoughts?

I suppose I should describe the crash... Sorry about that. The crash is usually vertical lines of a mixture of the view of the game and black. Once in a while it's just a plain reset. The lines made me think it was the GPU but I thought I would see what might be a common crash cause after S3 wake-up.
