So, lately my downloads are becoming corrupted. This started about a week or two ago when i stopped trying to OC my E6400 any higher than 2.4 GHz. my bittorent downloads are giving me messages with the lines of "download corrupted, please restart download."<br />
<br />
about two days ago when i was playing oblivion. the game just hanged for a moment then switched to a bluescreen with an error messagge saying that the device controlled by ATKDISP is stuck in a system loop. I later found out that the ASUS smartdoctor was @ fault for this crash. So i uninstalled smartdoctor. <br />
<br />
however, I also have had system hang ups when im trying to shut down my computer. I even had to shut off my power supply just to turn the damn thing off. I may have damaged some sectors of my HD for this, but the Windows scandisk shows nothing conclusive.<br />
<br />
When i was overclocking I was playing around the with voltages a lot. increasing the NBridge, SBridge, Vcore, Vram. So, i may have screwed up something in the CPU or the Motherboard.<br />
<br />
I've ordered an E6300 to isolate whether or not its the MB or the CPU. It's on its way and shoudl arrive this week.<br />
<br />
Any idea on whats going on or how i could fix this problem would be much appreciated.<img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
oh yeah, my system specs are as follows:<br />
<br />
E6400 OC'ed to 2.4GHz<br />
ASUS P5N32SLI-SE deluxe ( I know, I know. this MB is bad for <br />
OC'ing. An expensive lesson learned)<br />
2x 1024MB 667MHz corsair ram OC'ed to 800MHz<br />
320 GB SATA HD 16MB cache set on 3Gb/s mode<br />
ASUS 7600GT OC'ed to 600Mhz ( not sure if its still OC'ed now that smartdoctor is gone)<br />

My guess would be that yuor Windows installation might be a bit messed up with all the overclocking adventures. Or maybe just a BIOS setting thats still messing with ya.<br />
<br />
Before spending any money, try these two things first:<br />
<br />
Reset the BIOS (turn PC off, remove power chord, remove CMOS battery, move jumper to reset BIOS, drink coffee, or walk the dog..whatever <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />, replace jumper, replace battery, put power chord back in, boot up that PC).<br />
<br />
if that does not help, I would do a fresh re-install of Windows.<br />
<br />
And if problems still then persist, then post back <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Yeah, if you haven't already ordered, wait it out and try resetting your cmos and then reinstall windows. Windows can get a little wacky after some bad ocing attempts. <br />
<br />
Also, if you want to maybe save some time, try checking out a windows repair and see if it finds anything wrong.

Yea I agree with Chopes and Chozart about the Windows Installation.<br />
<br />
I think you should check to see whether your hard drive works on another system. If so, then you should try What Chopes said about clearing the CMOS and Reinstalling.<br />
<br />
But from the ATKDISP I looked around and it seems like a VideoCard problem:<br />

<br />
Then I looked some more and I found that it points to PSU Failure and possibly Memory Failure:<br />

</div>Maybe the easiest thing to do then is run memtest overnight and see if it encounters any errors, and then you can start looking at the ram to be the culprit. If not, continue on and do the other things suggested.

Yes I really do think it's your memory though.<br />
<br />
Whether it's said to have been (in the past) videocard or PSU.<br />
<br />
BSoD's are USUALLY memory errors.
