    Default Asrock 890GX Extreme 4 Video problems?

    I tried to search but did'nt find a solution. New build 890GX AM3,AMD 1090T Phenom 6, 4G Corsair memory, Windows 7 64bit.

    Most of the time everything runs smooth but now and again the video crashes and immediately comes back up giving me a driver error.

    Also Dr Debug is consistantly showing AA on the board is this normal?

    (AA) Uninstall POST INT1Ch vector and INT09h vector. Deinitializes the ADM
    module.

    Hi, I believe the code appears when the Windows boot loader comes up and Windows initializes. The AA is normal for when Windows power scheme or ACPI takes over the bios control.

    Here is something I found on Dr. Debug AA code.

    Please note that when you read the POST code listing, there are two instances of "AA". One instance is the "Uninstall POST INT1Ch vector and INT09h vector. Deinitializes the ADM module" and the second is the "System is running in ACPI mode". If you also notice and watch with a keen eye, when the computer goes through the POST sequence the "AA" code is displayed twice. The first time to references the "ADM module" and the second the "ACPI mode". Given that the POST sequence ends on "AA" and passes the sequence on to the boot loader (loads the OS), the "AA" displayed is the "ACPI mode" code. If the "AA" code displayed were the first code, the "ADM module" the POST sequence would be stuck there and would not pass the sequence on to the boot loader, the POST sequence would stop, and the OS would not load.
    The AA code means system detect all the hardware correct like cpu, memory, and video card. Plus All I/O port is function like it should. You can simply just ignore the AA code from LED card.

    I don't have much to go by here. May I suggest?
    You may want to find the DDR memory part numbers. Research the manufacturers recommended DDR memory voltage. Go into BIOS and manually reset the DDR memory voltage to the Manufacturers recommended voltage.
    Update your software and drivers. Especially the graphics software drivers and sound software drivers.
    Also when updating or installing software or drivers. You will want to right click the .exe and click on run as adminisrator.

    not quite sure what your saying but I could really use some help here, my buddy built the system for me and initially OC'ed the board after all the problems Ive defaulted the board and made sure my drivers were up to date but the problem seems worse now more frequent.

    this is what I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145291

    but my board also uses onboard video memory

    That memory voltage should be set manually to 1.65v in bios. When BIOS is set to optimal defaults DDR is on 1.5v. You may want to go into BIOS setup and adjust the DDR voltage to equal 1.65v thats 1.5v +0.15v = 1.65v.

    i did that but how did you know? so far it hasnt given me any problems but with onboard memory what does the voltage have anything to do with it? Or should I be changing the onboard memory voltage too? How?

    The error message you were getting is a windows error message. It is usually caused by windows drivers, or DDR memory. I went to the Corsair web site and looked up the memory specs. Your cpu will set voltage to the SPD settings of the memory. Which is 1.5v at 1333Mhz. The onboard video memory voltage is already preset. You just need to change the DDR memory to 1.65v. This should help with those errors.

    You want to OC it? This will take some arithmatic. Be sure you have adequate cooling. Your CPU is set at 200Mhz bus If you increase it it will increase the CPU speed, memory speed, Northbridge speed, and HT Link speed. You will want to turn back the Northbridge multipier and HT link multiplier to x9 or 1800
    You may want to oc a little at a time. Keep an eye on temperatures.

    Asrock has preset OC settings Just follow the instructions in the manual.
