PC keeps reset - help - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Hey, I have the same problem now (Problem Solved) in my PC#2 (not what is listed in sig)

Case: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 Yorkfield
GPU: BFG Tech Nvidia 8600 GS
RAM: G Skill DDR2 800 (4 x 2GB)
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 80GB
PSU: Raidmax 500w
Monitor: LG W2040T-PN Glossy Black 20"
CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520

Have also tried a 450w antec PSU, It is not a PSU issue. Does not seem to be the ram either. I was pretty sure the processor went (q6700) so just bought and installed a q8300. Still has the same problem.

I do not get any video, either.


Hahaha just minutes after posting this I try just 1 stick of my oldest ram and it boots.

Apparently that gigabyte board does not like G. Skill ddr2 800, but takes my old Corsair ddr2 800.. :X

I hope there is a way to make it accept my G. Skill and like it!


& Viet, Do you have any other DDR3 ram to try? Because I was in your same boat untill I tried some older ram.

- The G Skill that does not work for me is 1.8-1.9v I wonder if I can set the Gigabyte's bios at 1.9v on the RAM? Anyways sorry to thread jack but I had same problem and it turned out to be the ram, so, I hope that helps you viet.

My point is why even begin questioning the power supply RMA if you are fully aware the problem was not a glitchy PSU at all, but instead almost certainly software corruption?
I am not really sure it a software corruption or PSU bad. because when I replace the PSU, boot up then about 5 minuts later it reset. So I decide to restore my 3 months old backup file. After I done that boot it up then some reason it stated detect new hardware then install something there then reboot and after I left it on over night. Will check it out when I got home from work today see if it reset or not. I may target on RAM as well cuz I experience the HDD LED light keep solid blinking even I did no do any thing to the PC. I just sit there a watch ... seem like something running on the back ground

What exact RAM do you have? I'm looking at the Asus P6T Deluxe v2 ram compatibility list right now. Only 16000 they have for G. Skill is G.SKILL F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD(XMP)
DDR3 2000.

It may not be the problem though. However what I just learned about my #2 PC's gigabyte board is it does not work with my G. Skill (but works with Corsair). Sure enough, It was not on it's compatibility list either.

All that board has for DDR3 2000 compatibile (that they listed, anyway)

Assuming you are Vietmanese and I happen to be American we will have language misunderstandings sometimes. So please answer these simple questions going back to the beginning of your first post.

Part of your first Post:
"It keeps reset so many times today..."

To me this means to me it happens a lot. Am I right so far?

From your 2nd Post:
"I start with the PSU, and aafter the first boot to windows, it did reset once, then I use the back up image that was backed up 3 months ago restored that. it seem working fine now since last nite till now ( 11hrs on)."

To me this means you put another compatible Power Supply and soon got the same restart problem discribed in your first post. And then after this restart you "Restored" from a restore point saved 3 months ago and it ran for 11 hours+ without the restart problem? Am I correct?

From your 3rd post:
"After I done that boot it up then some reason it stated detect new hardware then install something there then reboot."

To me this is probably normal. You saw your system auto-updating different things that have changed during the 3 month Restore point gap to date and is most likely not a failure type restart error you discribed in your first post.
Can we agree so far?

Conclusion:
I believe your original Power Supply is good. If you agree, remove the test Power Supply and with patience and good lighting, carefully re-install original Power Supply. Then, first insure it powers up and boots into windows correctly. If all is well, I recommend an immediate full reformat of the hard drive. First insert your Windows Disk into your drive and reassign in BIOS to boot first from cdrom then reinstall a full, fresh copy of your OS. (I assume it is not a pirated copy)

But if you are comfortable with the current Restore point to be followed by a torrent of various updates (One of which probably corrupted Windows at some point) that is your choice. Good Luck and please repost with any additional questions, more problems and results.

got back home last night load the game on let it auto play for the whole night with out any reset. Maybe the windows was corrupted at some point. System now running at default setting NOT overclock yet. Should I overclock it to see if it stable at overclock value or reset ?
