    OK, I put in a new PSU but the system still crashes. Sporadically though.

    Out of interest what make and model of PSU have you been trying? Also when you say it's "Sporadic", is that much different from the symptoms of before, or about the same?

    I replaced it with a Cooler Master Real Power 520W. I put it in last wednesday and the first crash occured today, after two hours of gaming. No problems last wednesday or friday. My reasoning was that even if it wouldn't be the PSU after all I still would like to replace it. Of course it still could be the PSU that caused all the other problems besides the crashes while gaming, and that that is a driver issue. I'm OK with an occasional crash once a week, not with systems that aren't booting...

    It sounds like there is an improvement and you are now in a position (like you said) to see if there are any software issues.
    Now that you can boot up without problem (well I assume you can and were anxious Not to reboot the PC before), you could give the memory a through test with memtest. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool V2.11

    Because Vista uses ASLR, memory problems through settings/faults etc could show up under a greater range of circumstances than with previous windows versions - so it's worth running memtest overnight.

    ASLR info:-

    Thread necro :)

    For the last few days I've had the same "not booting" problems again. Somehow it seems that after rebooting the system doesn't want to turn on the graphics card. Normally the system turns on and beeps once, the Gigabyte splash screen shows up. If it fails, there's no beep and the monitor doesn't get a signal.

    Besides that the system still crashes while gaming. The monitor turns off (because it doesn't get a signal), the sound is still running (actual in game sounds, not a sound effect loop). Occasionally the game crashes to desktop and Vista restores the graphic driver.

    I've run memtest from a bootable disc, it doesn't report any errors.

    I'm still puzzled how to interpret this. The graphic driver crash and the fact that sound is still normal makes me believe it it's the graphics card, not the motherboard.

    So I need another graphics card to test this theory... unfortunately I don't have a decent backup card, so I guess I'll resort to buying one.

    @Lsdmeasap:excuse me for being an idiot, but I only just realised what it is you were asking. I don't use any specific setting in the MIT besides "automatically detect". As a matter of fact I just discovered last week what's in the MIT section (apparently, all things corresponding with overclocking). I digged into this part of the bios after I saw that my processor wasn't running at the right speed. This appears to be a power saving setting, if the cpu is stressed it does run at the right speed. I also discovered CIA2, overclocking for n00bs like me :)

    Well it very well could be your GFX Card, or the drivers used for it.

    MIT section, do you think you need help with that? Did you at least set your memory voltage manually?

    Well... help... That depends if I have to do anything there. Is it wrong to let the bios determine the voltages automatically?

    Yes, sometimes it is wrong

    Please grab a template from my signature and give us your specs and BIOS settings, you can use P35 tempate

    I can't find the other stuff in my bios. Perhaps the hwmonitor log I posted earlier is useful? It does mention CAS and so on...

    Some of those are not in your BIOS, but many are that you left blank

    These are all in the MIT Section >>

    And these are all in Advanced BIOS section >>

    Integrated Peripherals Section >>
    Legacy USB Storage Detect___________________?

    What BIOS are you using, check on the MAIN Page of the BIOS by pressing F9? If not the latest I suggest you update (F14) >>

    Please DO NOT USE @BIOS, use Qflash here is a guide >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Please also let me know again what memory you are using (Model or Link to it) just to be sure, then post me back your settings and I will advise.

    On 965P you may need to use the hotkey to see some settings in MIT, not sure if this has changed in the latest BIOS or not. The hotkey is, on the MAIN page of the BIOS press Control + F1 and the screen will flash, then go into MIT Section and all hidden settings will be visible
