    After shutdown and sitting overnight, when I boot up in the AM I get a blue screen. I go to safe mode with no problem, then restart and I can boot with no problem. If I do a restart, no problem. Then I shut down for the night and the same sequence starts.

    This is the hardware:

    GA-P45T-DS3R Rev 1.0 - Bios F3
    Intel Core2Quad 9400 2.66 MHz
    Zalman cnps9700
    XFX geforce 9800gt 512
    2 x 2GB Crucial Ballistix ddr3 1333
    Antec True Power Trio 550 W
    WD esata 1T
    Seagate Pro External USB 600 GB

    Can anyone suggest settings so that I can boot up in the morning in one step??

    What model is your memory? Just wanted to be sure that is the correct voltage

    You may have issues using 4.00D without being above 400 FSB, sometimes you can use this while under 400 and other times you cannot. Have you tried 4.00A, it may be worse so just asking.

    I know it may sound odd, but you may have better luck with a higher FSB like at or over 400 so you can use that multiplier easier. Of course your cooling would need to be up to it, or you could lower your CPU multi (Like 400x6 or 400x6.5), but you would likely still need to adjust/stabilize your CPU overclock due to the higher FSB

    You may also want to try the latest BIOS F4a

    Please use Qflash to update your BIOS if you do, here is a guide

    Here is the memory link==> BL2KIT25664BA1336 - 4GB kit (2GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM , DDR3 PC3-10600 from Crucial.com

    I tried 4.00B but it just cycled the post until I reverted back to 4.00D

    I will give 4.00A a try and wait to see how that works before I try the 400FSB

    Do you think the Vcore of 1.2625 and Vtt of 1.240 are ok?

    This has nothing to do with Vista lol.

    have u tried using 3.20B or 2.40B and see if that still happens? and set the Static tRead to Auto (for now).

    we have the same motherboard, and same BIOS version.


    and for vtt, I'd just leave it at 1.200, but 1.240 is OK too I guess

    I know ( Vista ) but it's still not my favorite!

    I'll give the 3.20B and 2.40B a try and see what happens.

    Thanks

    My DDR3 RAM is rated at 1333MHz 9-9-9-24 1.5V

    These are the settings I'm using. Hopefully you can make some use of these settings:

    DRAM voltage: 1.66v
    divider/multiplier/strap: 2.40B
    Timings: 6-6-6-18 tRFC 48 tRD 9


    oh.. and I don't think you need that much mch core lol. 1.16V or 1.2V mch core should be enough.

    That's interesting...These are listed as 1333MHz 6-6-6-20 at 1.8V

    Just to see what happens I'll try your settings

    I'm waiting on a return tech support call on an unrelated ( business ) problem so I'll have to try this after they get back to me

    I'll let you know what happens

    Thanks,

    Dan

    I think your 1.8V dram voltage may be a little too much for DDR3.

    yeah I just realized that after doing a search.

    6-6-6-20 seems a bit unstable for 1333mhz, but I guess that's why it requires 1.8V

    and I don't think u need that much MCH core. should set it to 1.16 or 1.2v

    and this board also has a HUGE vdrop on the DRAM voltage & vCore. So you might need 1.84V instead of 1.8V

    Default Re: Still cannot get Vista Stable

    For starters I only changed DRAM Voltage from 1.800V to 1.840V and MCH Core from 1.240V to 1.200V

    Got a blue screen

    Went back in and left MCH Core at 1.200V and brought DRAM back to 1.800V ... I got the "problem" screen and first booted into Safe mode and then into Vista.

    That is where I am now. The thing that bothers me is I can do a restart now and it will boot up with no problems. But when I shut down and wait ( for how long I don't know ) it then bsod's and I have to do the safe mode to OS game.

    So, I'm going to shut down for about an hour, have lunch , and then see what happens.

    I'll keep you informed

    Machine was off for 55 minutes.

    (Essentially no changes to cmos except MCH Core reduced to 1.200V)

    Got a blue screen, went to safe mode to restart and I am back here now.

    So the problem is still with me. If all is the same I should be able to restart with no blue screens as before.

    I will post this and then do a restart

    As I suspected, I restarted with no problems

    If I reset the memory timings to 6-6-6-20 to see what happens, should I also up the DRAM to 1.840 or just leave it at 1.800??
