    I will

    But I guess I did a fatal mistake, by not installing the boarddrivers, I did not think they was compatible with win7, now I've installed from the DVD I got with my board.

    1. Click Start.
    2. In the Search bar, type Task Scheduler and press Enter.
    3. On the left pane, click on Task Scheduler Library, Microsoft, Windows, RAC.
    4. Now, click the View Menu and tick Show Hidden Tasks.
    5. In the middle pane, right click on RACTask and click Disable.
    6. Done!

    Not a single bluescreen or reset since the change, rock solid.

    A BIG Thanks to everyone who tried to help.

    I'll be back after some more days of testing, but so far the problem is not present anymore.

    BTW. it Win7-64bit I'm using.
    Thanks for posting for others this info, I have found that this can cause issues on systems since the vista beta days. Sometimes on stable setups it is fine, but often if drives are fragmented or there is any other system issues (Programs, Drivers, Ram errors, ect) then this can cause many instabilities.

    I really think by default it should not have been a hidden task, nor started without the user starting it themselves because as you likely know more than 80% of vista users never look at the data this app collects

    But the problem is solved... I hope
    Ahh OK, Well I just wondered before I started to try and help. Nice to see you think you got it fixed up now. Let us know if you need further help

    Let us know how it goes!

    @Classicman
    I'm not active all the time, but when I have the time and I see that Lsdmeasap is not around I do try to help people out and post more, especially with the stuff I know best, cooling and Core 2 overclocking :)
    Thanks for helping out, when I am gone or not! It is most appreciated!!

    Please don't use the drivers on your CD/DVD that came with the board, download all the drivers you need from Gigabyte site for your board or direct from the maker of the driver you are installing. That way you use the latest and not old drivers that you would find on the CD/DVD.

    If you need help finding a driver direct from somewhere let us know and we will show you where to find it

    @Lsdmeasap

    Thanks for the good feedback, I have installed the latest drivers from intel, and my X-FI soundcard, with those installed I have reactivated RACTask to see if the problem still occurs, I will continue to experimenting until I have a complete picture of the problem, if thats possible.

    I'll be back when I have tested some more.



    PS.

    Your English is fine, I didn't even notice!

    Good luck with the testing, post back anytime

    you remember i gave an overclock try to the same mobo with q9550. I did use the OC system for a single month and then shifted back to default setting. Now I'm crunching for BOINC. I have a question for you. Are increasing MCH or DDR3 voltage considered as overclocking, because x48t-dq6 limits my ram frequencies as well to 1066 where it's supposed to be 1600 mhz. I searched for the timings but not sure whether it's overclocking or not.

    You would need to overclock the CPU to achieve 1600 MHz on the RAM as the highest memory multiplier is 4 so you'd need 400 FSB.
    It's not overclocking per se on the RAM as it's specified to do that. The board/chipset is also specified to run at 400 FSB by Intel with the Core 2 Extreme 9770.

    So you mean, if i buy XQ9770, (withouth OC) I will be able to hit 1600 mhz on my ram (My ram already supports 1600 mhz at 8 CAS by 1.9v). That's lucky of me, because i'm planning to upgrade to qx9770 as soon as the larrabee comes out (Hoping that the price drops). I have my doubts although that X48T-DQ6 will set the correct timings for ram with qx9770?

    Thanks.

    After installing the latest Intel-drivers and enabling the "RACTAsk" I did not get bluescreen or reset, but my system froze, so a problem was still around.

    Now I'm almost 100% certain that the critter is caught, I have a soundcard "Sound Blaster® X-Fi Xtreme Gamer - Fatal1ty Professional" a really great card, but not with Windows 7, after removing the card and uninstalling all Creative-software, it seems my system is 100% stable, everything is set to default and the nasty "RACTask" has been enabled.

    So far no Freezing, hard-resets or blue-screens since the change.


    I'll let the system run for a few more days and see if the bug is dead, if it is, I hope my findings can help others who might suffer this problem.

    @DKnoob, or anyone else currently running Windows 7 (like I am). Due to the similarities between the driver model of Vista and Win7, a huge % of Vista drivers are completely fine to use with Windows 7. If the Driver has an installer, rather than just the bare files, you may have to set the installer to Vista compatibility mode. Running the setup as an administrator is usually recommended too.

    @Classicman: Yes, as the QX9770 has a default FSB of 400 (this will be set automatically when loading optimized defaults for example) you will be able to run your RAM at DDR-1600 and have a completely stock system (using the 4.0 divider). If you don't own a QX9770 (they really ain't worth the price, they're a rip off IMO) then you can raise the FSB to 400 and lower the multi to get near stock, as you know. This is technically still overclocking though, as you are aware.

    DKNoob, I hope you have squashed that bug, let us know how your system behaves after a few days of use.

    X-FI has been known to cause issues for sure with Gigabyte boards, not sure what all cards though but I do know I Have helped narrow things down to these cards a few times over the past year.

    If you search for it here you will see a few posts with issues directly related, so I bet that was the whole issue.
