    Great, the past worked..

    So, these are the setting that i set-up under a separate BIOS profile. I keep going back into them and adjust as I see/read on forums.

    But, it still does not work very well. If I need to use the machine, then I used the "stock" BIOS profile, load those settings, and all is back to normal.

    Only once I made a change and it kept on re-wanting to re-boot but never did......so I did a battery pull to re-set the BIOS...

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Set memory multiplier to 2.00D, leave advanced timings auto for now, increase tRFC if needed, spec is 46 for DDR-800, see how that go.
    Not clear if Vcore si default 1.225v or 1.325v, you'f probably need more than default.

    EDIT: leave Static tRead Value auto or 11/12 for both channel for now, try to set it lower later.

    OK, thanks...
    changed multiplier to 2.00D
    tRFC is now 52 (default is 46)
    Vcore at 1.325v

    re-booted on the 3rd attempt.....

    Any multi reboots are no good, meaning settings did not take and BIOS chose something that works.
    At default everything was working OK no multi boots?
    Try to go up more with MCH Core up to 1.24v, if no go try to set MCH Core back to 1.1v, DRAM Voltage 1.9v.

    One more thing, don't leave CPU PLL and CPU termination on auto. Set the manually at default. CPU Termination may need to be increased 1.2-1.26v.

    CPU-Z shows the safe values in v.core and CPU speed, 1.184v and 2.499Ghz respectively...

    As I said before, multi boots settings are unknown, must be first boot (sometimes 2) to to be sure the settings took. Otherwise go back into BIOS and change them.
    Try 366FSBsee if that work.

    Thanks,
    updated with the setting updated below......re-boot after 3 times, still getting red error message when entering bios...
    should I just leave it "stock'?
