Windows boots to login screen, then restarts

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Basically my computer has been running stable at 3.6 for some time now. I wanted to run some tests so I downloaded LinX. I went to run 20 times with all available memory and kept getting an error saying there wasn't sufficient memory to run LinX. I chose to use 6184 (I believe) and windows immediately said the program had to be closed. After I chose to close it the computer went into a windows log in boot loop, not even giving me enough time to log in.

I tried to load into Safe Mode and it seemed stable, so I'm thinking it's a software problem. The BLCK, voltage, RAM multiplier, nothing has been touched.

I was going to try and log in when I got home in safe mode, uninstall linx and CCleaner in case there's any remnants of it...but I've never heard (or read) of this happening to anyone before. Not sure if it corrupted a windows file or if it is in fact my OC acting up out of no where.

Another option is to reinstall windows on my SSD. When I first installed it I did it in IDE mode (I know) and a couple weeks ago put it into AHCI mode...so not sure if I reinstall would be a better idea anyway.

Let me know, thanks for your help in advance.

First, disable all OC features and try to log in. If it doesnt work then its not the oc, some windows files might have been damaged when your system had crashed, the only way to go would be using a recovery disk (if you have made any) or to reinstall win7.

Thanks Leo, the corrupted files is what I'm afraid of.

Try to boot up with the win7 dvd........ select the repair option and try to repair the startup files (automatically).... in 50% of such cases it can fix the issues
you can also boot up in vga=mode (F8 during startup) and try to uninstall/reinstall system/display drivers and see if that fixes the issue, these are the few options for you now.

OK some how my OC went haywire...thanks was in a bit of a panic.

Here's the current settings:
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1663869

I still can't get LinX to work though...IntelBurnTest succeeded on Very High with these settings....I just don't understand why every time I run Linx it says:

Intel(R) LINPACK 64-bit data - LinX 0.6.4

Current date/time: Fri Feb 18 23:20:46 2011

CPU frequency: 3.600 GHz
Number of CPUs: 8
Number of threads: 8

Parameters are set to:

Number of tests : 1
Number of equations to solve (problem size) : 28215
Leading dimension of array : 28216
Number of trials to run : 20
Data alignment value (in Kbytes) : 4

No runs is allowed for C:\\Program Files (x86)\\LinX\\linpack_xeon64.exe: not enough memory

Everyone always says just start it up, make sure all is chosen and 20 Run times...hit start and let it go. I get that error.

Is "UAC" turned off in win7?
if not, then type it in the startmenu search box and then disable it.
