Gigabyte 870A UD3 Problem

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have built a new pc for a Client but have a problem.
Here are the specs:

AMD Phenom II 1090T
GigaByte 870A UD3
4 GB Crosshair XMS3
nVidia GTS 250 512MB
250GB WD SATA Drive
Samsung DVD-RW IDE drive
Windows 7 Pro x64
450watt psu(My clients had this one left in his office)

The problem is I would install windows, it would be a little slow to install but thats probably because of the IDE DVD drive. It would work fine for one week or there abouts then would not turn on and startup repair would run for longer than 100hours and still be stuck at repairing disk errors. I reinstalled windows at least 10 times now and keep getting the same problem. I get no error, no BSOD, every thing is fine until it decides not to boot. I will work fine if I dont turn it off. I flashed the motherboard BIOS, still no luck. I tested it with no software installed other than windows, turned it on every day for a about 12 days and on the 13th day it would not start. I tried vista and got the same problem x86 and x64. The only thing slightly unusual is when it is working is, it hangs at a black screen before the logon screen for about 15 - 30 seconds. All drivers were installed and all updates.
I tried different hard drives and RAM. I did a kill disk on the hard drive before I installed windows every time.
Now I have build many pc before and this is the first time I had this problem.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening or how to prevent it?

Did you check the HDD for corrupted sectors, etc?

Edit: Nvm. ~ Unusual sounding problem. That sounds EXACTLY like a hard drive problem...

You've tried other hard drives.
Have you tried using a different hard drive controller?

RAM might be undervolted. Set the voltage manually(you can bump it up a lil bit --> stock + 0.025 - 0.050V

I checked that but the motherboard output and the voltage on the ram match.

Its probably a bad motherboard.What did you use to update the bios and there are 5 diff revisions of that board did you get the right one for the revision you have?
