    Default Ga-ep45-ds3r & ozc ddr @1066

    Hello,

    I built my system within the last month. Here are the specs:

    GA-EP45-DS3R (F8 Bios)
    Intel Q9450
    4GB OCZ OCZ2P10664GK (@ 2GB)
    ATI HD4870
    Vista 32
    Western Digital Sata 500GB

    Anyway, the system seems to have lost some stability at start up and shut down. I can get through BIOS but Vista with either freeze after scrolling bars; load fine; or hang on close.

    However, sometimes, when I start up, the fans kick on for a few seconds, then shut down. Sometimes it resets itself, other times it requires me to manually reset.

    I ran memtest and got some errors. However, I now see that the memory seems to be not on the QVL-even though it was last month!

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    quick update- This never happened in all other times- but the orange Realtek audio icon (the one that pops up when you plug in front headset) does not show up even though my audio is working fine. Also, my network icon shows up as not connected (i.e. x next to it), even though I am on Internet through network.

    Does this mean my motherboard is bad?

    Update: A shut down and start-up caused the RealTek and Network Icons to display properly. I'm thinking now mother board problem.

    Thanks

    What settings are you using for your ram? This could be the cause, and if you do not have enough voltage to your MCH as well. Can you post some pics of your MIT section for me?

    Sorry for the spreadsheet. Don't know how to take image in BIOS.

    Also, I did see your advice to others, so the changes were based on your previous recommendations to others.
