Crash/freeze after bootup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So im not really sure whats wrong , but sometimes after a crash , i would need to reset the CMOs or it will not POST.Usually , all is well after i've set my OC back up but this time after rebooting up my system it would freeze/crash/reboot into black screen ( which can happen anytime from booting up windows to setting the BIOs itself) which i will then have to wait for it to clear again.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening? (I'm using a B50 processor)

Edit:Loading defaults and i would apparently be stuck at 'Checking NVRAM..Update OK!' or it might have frozen again

I have a feeling you have RAM issues. I would suggest you go get either a 1 x 4 Gb stick, 2 x 2Gb (kit) or 2 x 4 Gb (kit) sticks. You have different brand's (hence, timings and such). Also, AMD is not known to be all that efficient with 3 channels. They work best with either 1, 2 or 4 sticks. Anything above 8 Gb is deemed a waste. Not many programs used on a household level that would take advantage of +8 Gb. Your mobo's manual should have qualified RAM suggestions listed somewhere you can use as a guide. If not, go to Biostars website then. they may have an updated list there.

This setup was supposed to tide me over till BD is out so i can jump to DDR3 straight away , DDR2 RAMs are pretty hard to find here since i don't think any major retail outlets sell them anymore so i have a ragtag force of RAMs running on this system which worked fine for more than a year now.

I'd be pretty surprised (AND ANGRYYYY) if they went dead on me now since there is only 2 more months to go

Hmmm... That is a problem then. I do believe the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula boards are going to be BD compatible through a BIOS upgrade. That wasn't the reason I bought mine to begin with but that has been what I have been reading in several forums. Your present processor is compatible with that board. You could get the board and memory now and still use your CPU, HDD, etc. That way you spread your expense over time and it doesn't hurt as much. Also, OC'ing on the Formula does have a slight learning curve, Use these 2 months to learn the in's/out's of the board so you can then get the most out of your BD when you get it. Read up on the board on the Official Crosshair Formula/Extreme thread.

Yup , as we speak , my 1GB GEIL RAM has soundly passed away as of 10.20pm in the fateful night of 9/4/2011 , you will always be remmbered as the faster clocked RAM of the bunch capable of doing 1066Mhz.In his wake , we should remember his lively accomplishments , bringing an extra 200Mhz of memory to a 32-bit system , being extensively easier to slot in than my other RAMs.I wish him well in RAM heaven , maybe he one day reincarnate to Kingston Hyper T1 Blacks.

As he parts , i wish him well in his afterlife.

R~I~P

(its actually semi-dead , being able to boot up occasionally with my other RAMs)
