    Is it ok if you put your other CPU back in? If you have not tried that please do so now, then update your BIOS with that CPU installed before putting in the new one.

    I was talking to lsdmeasasp over on crucial.com. Here's my question, i was given 2 settings to do in the bios for the memory by crucial. The first is to set the voltage - 2.0 and the other was the timing to 444-12. My question is where in the bios are these settings. i'm looking in the book and i see DDR2/DDR3 Overvoltage control and high speed DRAM DLL Settings which have 2 memory timing configurations. Are these the options i need to use? Lsdmeasasp also suggested to flash the bios but after looking into this i see myself screwing this up more than not. When i reboot the machine i want to see what version of the bios i have if i can catch the screen.

    Hey Ronb!

    I'll have to go see if I can find your thread at Crucial here after a bit to verify your motherboard, but those settings should be in the MIT section of your BIOS.

    Flashing your BIOS is easy as I mentioned to you, this thread is long and technical with lots of warnings just to be sure everyone knows the various ways it can be done and that they need to be careful.

    You will be fine, flash with Qflash and you will be good to go.

    To check the BIOS version you have now you can use CPU-z and look in the mainboard tab, or go into the BIOS and press F9 on the MAIN page of the BIOS for system information.
    CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    I'll go look up your motherboard at Crucial and edit this post with your motherboards exact setting names for things, but it should be right in the MIT Section (Main memory timings, and then Dram or DDR2 voltage control for the memory voltage)

    If it is an older board, or older BIOS, you may need to press Ctrl + F1 on the MAIN Page of the BIOS *Screen will flash* then go into MIT to see all settings. This normally would not hide Main memory timings or dram voltage though.

    I replied to your thread just not at Crucial, and checked inside your BIOS. DDR2/3 voltage control is your voltage settings name, you will need to put voltage control on manual or enabled first before you can set that.

    I was able to figure out that i had to set the System Voltage Control to manual to get the the DDR2/DDR3 OverVoltage Control which i set to +0.2. I assume the prior setting for the DDR voltage was at 1.8 so this should do the trick but i'd like to verify that. btw i have a ga-p35c-ds3r mobo at rev 2.0. I wasn't sure about the (G)MCH OverVoltage Control so i left it. I did look at it to see that there were settings for auto and manual. I'm not sure where manual led me to. I have to look at that again. Other than that it seems like the colors on the display are more vibrant so i went in to the nvidia control panel to make some slight adjustments. I want to verify my bios version also before i even consider that. if i'm at f12 then i won't play with it since that's the last version they had for this board.

    thanks for the help. I forgot i was a member here for a while. i get side tracked sometimes

    Just a side note, after posting this i tried to get in to a program and my screen went black so i rebooted since nothing was happening. I changed the (G)MCH to +0.2. I'm not sure why the screen went black. The program i tried to call up wasn't responding so i tried to get into the task manager using ctrl alt del and that's when it went dark. It may be nothing

    Just a side note my system froze again and again the screen went black so i had to reboot again. Both ie and windows live mail were not responding so again i tried the task manager and that's when the screen went dark. i tried the task manager now when there is no issues and i was able to access it. it sounds like something is not set right. it seems like this happens when i first turn the machine on only. any ideas?

    Auto may or may not have been 1.8V, you would have had to check before changing it or set it back and check. Current voltage you can see in the PC Health section, +0.2 DDR2 voltage should be around 2.0V

    MCH Overvoltage is probably needed, +0.2-0.3 for 4GB.

    I'd need to see you exact full settings to best advise you on your issues, can you please make a new thread and fill out a template from my signature with your current settings, then I can better advise you.

    Qflash is part of your BIOS.

    You can enter Qflash from the MAIN page of the BIOS by pressing F8, or by pressing the "END" Key many times at startup (Like pressing DEL to enter BIOS, press END instead)

    Thank You! I had just tried flashing my bios to the newest version (mobo: GA-EP45T-DS3R Bios ver F2 -> F4c) in hopes of fixing a minor issue that didn't really "need" to be fixed. This was done using the @bios utility. ya, I've herd the rumors about @bios but I couldn't get q-flash to detect my flash drive. Well, apparently something went wrong since afterwards it started rebooting every 5 seconds or so with no display. In addition to this the backup bios didn't appear to be kicking in. So, in my search for some sort of fix and after trying a few other things I came across this thread and figured trying clearing the CMOS couldn't hurt, and to my surprise it actually worked. It went through a short recovery procedure and and proceeded to boot up normally. Weird thing is the bios version it "recovered" to was the version I had just flashed "F4c." I don't know what magic just occurred but I'm glad to have my desktop back.
