    Default Random Reset Problems

    Hi All

    I would really appreciate you help with this frustating problem.

    My current setup is:

    Processor:Intel E5200 2.5GHz
    Motherboard:GA-G31M-S2L
    Memory: OCZ2G8004GK
    Hard Drive: Hitachi DeskStar 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache
    Graphics Card: ASUS HD 3650 256MB DDR3 Dual DVI HDTV out
    PSU: Powercool 650W 80plus Certified Efficiency
    Vista 32bit

    I seem to be experiencing random restarts. I'm not sure if its my memory or setup etc. I have run memtest86 and it found no errors.

    Could you help me get to the root of these problems?

    Thanks

    What settings are you using in the MIT Section?

    This is your memory correct? >>

    Please give me your settings you are using >>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    Hi

    Thanks for replying. Yes you are correct this is the memory I'm using

    Here are my MIT settings:

    Unfortunately the BSOD happens so fast I don't get anything - I could attach the minidump is you like?

    Anything you could help me with would be great.

    Many thanks :)

    I have a similar rebooting issue with my NEW buid. I get a minidump the machine tells me that windows has recovered from a serious error after rebooting. I have minidump files that I will post if that helps.

    My system has never crashed while I was using it. It always seems to happen if I leave it on overnight or during the day and I see the BSOD when I come home.

    I would suggest that you first start with cooling. Make sure that all your vents are open and airflow is not being blocked.

    My issue ..I think was that my GPU was not venting air properlty. As a result, the area under my GPU and all the components were overheating. That is my theory. I am still validating this.

    Here is my other post:
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/rand...tml#post289750

    It outlines the things that I looked and perhaps it can help you.

    Acouple of things that I did were

    1. memtest86 (bootable version from Ultimate boot CD)
    2. hardrive diagnostic (Seagate harddrive utilities)
    3. stress test for video card (I forget what this one was called. Google it)
    4. stress test for CPU/memory (prime 95 (blend option after installing) )

    I was running the Video card stress test while running prine 95. I maxxed out my 4 core temps @ ~70'C and my GPU got up t0 81'C.

    Non of these tests found any failures......
    Overheating can cause some weird behaviors and apparently hard to debug.
