Stock Stability problem, ASUS M4A77TD and AMD Athlon II X4 630 - Page 2

I would make sure that the ram is good, in addition to making sure that all of the settings are correct. Try running Memtest86 and see what happens. If the ram turns out to be fine, then at least we've got one thing that should be out of the picture and crossed off of the list of possibilities.

Also, have you moved the machine recently? Things have a tendency to come unseated if the computer is moved around quite a bit (like if you moved it somewhere).

Also... what exactly do you mean by

this happened once i put in a new HDD and reformatted it, same Operating system W7 64bit
?

Does this mean a fresh install, or that you just cloned the install and moved it to the new HDD? Because if it was the latter, then you could easily have some awesome driver issues.

Good luck

Try clearing the CMOS. There are some references to this sort of thing in the ASUS support forums, and I've done it myself after having issues after adding or upgrading something.

From the manual for your board (you can save yourself a step by removing the battery the first time you do it):

Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.

M4A77TD Clear RTC RAM
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data. Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!
• If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMOS, reinstall the battery.

Correct, do that first.

Have you ran memtest on the memory ? Curious, are you running your memory at 1600 in the blue slots with a 240 HTT ?

You say it's solid in safe mode ? No problems til you changed that hd ?

Man, I've had good luck w/my board, I've pushed the tar out of it..

i have tried setting the OC settings to manual and i have left them all on Auto,
the problem is with this CPU i dont know what voltage to start out with, what FSB what multiplyer.

i have the ram in one brown slot and one blue slot, thats how it should be right?
