    Default EP35-DS3L BSOD Problem

    I've been wondering what my problem is, and while reading some of the threads here, I realize that it's because I use the S3 sleep mode with Vista 64. I'm wondering if you guys have any tweaks or tips that could help me use it.

    My system:
    Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
    4 gigs of g. skill ram @800mhz (PC2 6400)
    EVGA 512-P3-N802-A1 GeForce 8800GT
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS
    Western Digital Caviar SE WD5000AAJS
    ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro
    OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W
    Vista Home Premium x64

    I have the latest drivers and windows updates. I'm using the F5 bios. Tell me the other info that I should post. I do know that most of my bios settings are on AUTO. I've read that that's a problem, but I'm not sure what settings to put. Thanks in advance.

    Just the contrary, usually the S3 sleep mode only gives that nasty BSOD when resuming if the motherboard is overclocked.
    Probably we will see a new BIOS correcting the issue, but I do not for sure if this will occur in short or looooong time.

    I'm actually not sure anymore if it is S3 causing the problem. My BSOD doesn't usually happen within minutes. It usually takes 1-3 hours. The quickest it has happened might be 30 minutes. I'll try using it for a few days without S3 and see if it still blue screens.

    I saw this posted elsewhere, so I thought I'd do my own.

    The BSODs on resume from S3 were fixed for the P35 chipsets some time ago, well before they came out with the fix for the P45s. Check to see that your BIOS is higher than the one that specifically addresses the resume from S3 fix.

    There is no one that specifically states that it fixed the S3. The board is a relatively new model. First bios is from February. Maybe it's not an S3 problem at all, but an entirely different problem.

    Ya, you may need to set some things for sure manually for 4GB to be stable. Try these >>>

    Robust Graphics Booster Auto
    CPU Clock Ratio x9
    CPU Host Clock Control Disabled [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz) 266
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) 100
    C.I.A. 2 disabled
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) 3.00 = 800Mhz
    DRAM Timing Selectable Manual

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time______5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay____5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay___5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)____15

    Please post a link to the exact ram you have, so I can better advise you

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)___3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay___3-6
    Write to Precharge Delay_____6-8
    Refresh to ACT Delay______52-62
