    When i run memtest with more then 2GB of mem it does reboot. but as soon as i bump it down to an even 2GB (1 stick) its fine. I have ran diags on both sticks of memory both seem fine. Just when they are togeather it affects the system. Tonight ill try a live CD like Bunto (Spelling?)

    Kydd here are some settings you can try in bios for 4GB's When you get to the first bios page press Ctrl+F1 to get memory timings.
    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    HT Link Frequency [Auto]
    VGA Core Clock control [Disabled]
    x VGA Core Clock (Mhz) 500
    CPU Clock Ratio [Auto]

    Normal CPU Vcore 1.3250v
    After you set the timing control to manual save and reboot into bios on first page in bios press ctrl+F1 again this has to be done everytime you want to see all your options.

    i did that as well. Before i had an account on the site. i was following what was going on. giving it all a try. Thanks though. I have an open ticket with Gigabyte. And they just keep saying going to F8 will fix it.
    but every time i update the Bios i have to reinstall Win 7 cuz it unconfigs my raid 0
    wait actually there were a few spots i was having issues accessing. Ill take a look tonight just to make sure

    Please see this guide, it will tell you how to flash and NOT mess up your RAID Array >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    I do it ALL the time, and have never had an issue. Sometimes 5-10 times a week

    All you need to do is flash, reboot to BIOS, Load optimized then F10, reboot TO BIOS, set Settings Back to RAID Then F10, reboot TO BIOS again, move array to top of Hard Disk Boot Priority in Advanced BIOS page, then F10 and load windows

    Sounds like it is just settings to me, if you do believe it runs fine indefinitely with only one stick of ram

    Yes we have flashed a bios many times without harming the RAID by following those simple instructions by Lsdmeasap. They work quite well.

    i didnt know how to do that. so when i flashed the bios it killed my raid.
    but its fine all i had installed was vent so its no biggie. However i havent been able to install windows again cuz the raid is messed up so i cant flash to F8 from F3.
    also any idea if its ok to flash straight from F3 to F8 or should i do each update.

    Im going to be honest about it. Im not that good with computers at all. So when i go in to the bios im a little overwhelmed for the most part.

    I have 'read' that it's not good to jump, or skip, to many bios updates. I would install F4 first then F6 then F8. I am not to sure, but it's up to you. Yeah you should always go into bios first after a flash. I switch from auto to manual on some of my settings. Set my SATA RAID controllers setting, and memory settings. I usually reboot and go into bios several times. I have to set my Hard disk boot priority, memory voltage and timings, disable UMA for onboard graphics(not smart unless you have a backup card,or know how to set bios defaults). After doing that 4 or 5 times it gets easy. It works for me but Lsdmeasap's bios installation instructions is thorough, and very good.

    It's ok, we all have to learn sometime. Just don't be scared of it anymore, once you do it they way I described you will see it is easy and you wont have anymore issues or concerns with BIOS Flashing and RAID arrays.

    I am concerned about this, what do you mean? I thought you did reinstall windows? Either way, if you did or not, all you have to do is go into the RAID BIOS (If it is messed up still anyway) and delete and recreate the array. Very easy

    You can jump from any BIOS you like to the latest, no problems with that at all

    hmmm. I disagree with the driver theory. Every driver I've used has been fine and, in nearly all cases, signed.

    I have removed my EMU soundcard today, and my Graphics card, and am back to one screen and no music production. The reset has still occured. That leaves it down to MOBO or CPU, surely.

    I've contacted Gigabyte Tech support GGTS and they havent replied for three days. Just sent a second request for help.

    Not impressed with the direct tech support at all!

    I'm starting to believe its a mobo fault. for the CPU to die is rare, and the memory has passed countless times.

    last night i put forth a lot more effort to the issue then usual. to find that i cant install windows at all now.
    I have a known good copy that i installed just a week ago on the same machine before it started rebooting. And last night it would not take.
    So i deleted my raid set up and created a new (raid 0) and tried again. Now it even failes to format.

    Its a Raid 0 of (2) 250GB 7200 RPM Sata WD drives. Trying to install Win 7.
