    I am quite sure you have done it before, or this is the BIOS the board came with? It's a beta BIOS and I find it hard to believe GB will ship a board with beta BIOS.

    If BIOS update fail for some reason you end with a non functional board. Though the board has dual BIOS that suppose to prevent this from happening, well, it might or might not.

    BTW the new BIOS has Xpress BIOS Recovery feature, just to teach you how much GB themselves trust the dual BIOS. Wouldn't trust this feature myself, disabled in BIOS by default I think. Just my opinion.

    So should I give it a whirl? Or might my RAM problem be in my settings in the BIOS?

    Try the 4.0~ multiplier first.
    Could be settings though I see nothing wrong with those you have tried. Might be compatibility issue.
    New BIOS may fix it, though there is no guarantee.
    Mybe it's the low FSB and 4 multiplier. Have you considered 266FSB x 9.5 (2.53GHz, hardly an overclock) and 3 memory multiplier?

    What does usualy cause crash, any particular activity?
    Might be a buggy driver or a corrupted system file.
    No way to realy know, if it doesn't crash anymore after all tests it's "stable".

    Start with the 4.00~ multiplier.

    if you are going to OC the FSB set:
    Code:
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [9] 
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.5]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266] 
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [3.00]
    
    DDR2 OverVoltage Contro << +0.3 ot +0.4
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control << +0.1 to +0.2
    The rest as before.
    CPU Voltage a notch or two above normal Vcore.

    I'll try those. Thanks so much for the help Chike and everyone else :)

    I'm really not sure what causes the crashes, sometimes it will crash a few minutes after I log on, sometimes (like now) it won't. I have have it crash with IRQ_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, and the ntfs.sys. After running Orthos I had problems with firefox and Chrome running Java (except on Safari), it would crash, Word also wouldn't work and crashed (Wordpad worked though). Skype stopped working as well... So lol I really have no idea what prompts the BSOD.

    I suggest you update to the latest BIOS for sure.

    Chike, that feature allows a backup BIOS to be saved on the HPA Section of your hard drive, or tells the BIOS to look there first or the backup Chip whichever you set. Don't disable it.


    AHHH! Bandwidth exceeded! Terrible, as I have $0.00 in my Paypal account now and this means all my reviews will be exceeded as well!

    Thanks for letting me know, I need to get that paid somehow!

    That's odd, according to the Gigabyte site GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-EP35-DS3L , the latest version of the BIOS is f6...but CPU-Z says I have f6a installed

    Oh I think F6a must have been a beta version or something.

    A bit OT, but this is exactly why I don't trust it. A fail safe system does not need a third backup. If it does it probably will fail too.
    Trust me I know this, I worked on high availability file servers. You either do it right the first time or it is not going to work. Patches to make it "even more reliable" only point to the fact it wasn't reliable to begin with.
    I have already read at least one post about a MB that got stuck in loop searching for BIOS on the HD in this forum.
    I don't like the idea BIOS messing with my HD either.
    Again, my opinion only.
