It's most likely a BIOS problem.
Even though! Some people claim to have solved it by updating to the 1053 bios and clearing the CMOS (by switching the jumper)... I haven't tried it... so i don't know.
So i decided to try clearing the CMOS... Figured if it was already buggy, nothing worse could happen. AND IT WORKED.
It doesn't make sense, but it worked. I'm running with exactly the same settings as before, tested memory in all slots, and my computer doesn't do the restart ritual before booting.
EDIT: For the sake of information: My RAM were previously running @ the a2 b2 (blue), and now they're at the a1 b1 (black)... I have tested them in both slots, and they work fine in either. so i decided to keep them in the a1 b1 slots.Edited by ilam3d - 1/15/11 at 11:59am
