    Did the PC came like this from the store or the black screen problem developed?
    Have you made any changes in BIOS before?
    Could be that it "just happened". Obviousely there was some problem with BIOS that is now solved after it was cleared.
    BIOS already set DRAM Voltage to 1.9v, according to this file
    You can run stability tests, memtest86+ for 6+ passes, then Prime95/Orthos blend torture for 8+ hours. 1-2 hours of small and large FFT optional IMO for default settings.
    If all pass with no errors tou are good to go and should not be worried.

    Chike,
    The complete history was presented in my first posting.
    The unit started showing this black screen a short time after I bought the pc and without me even accessing the setup. It was brought back to the Panda lab twice. On the first time' each and every part (other than the mb were replaced and checked. No part was found defective. Still, surprisingly, the pc started acting normally. A short time later, at home, the problem started again. I brought the computer back to the lab. The technician ran comprehensive testing, made some minor changes in the setup (proclaiming that these changes had nothing to do with my problem). Once again, the pc behaved normally, but only for a short while. The longest period ever for this system to behave normally is at present (touch wood!!), following the cmos clean step which I did following this forum's members.

    As to the DRAM Voltage, I failed to find the information you mention (1.9v) in the referred document.

    As to the suggested tests, I can run them, but I wonder if no setup changes should preferably be made first made.

    " JEDEC standard 1.8V 0.1V Power supply"
    Sorry i failed to complete that line, max voltage is 1.9v.
    I based the applied 1.9v on the EasyTune screen capture. A little more is possible, but only if it's needed.

    You may increase MCH Core to 1.15-1.2v (for the large amount of memory,) but you may not need it at all.
    All other settings look "normal", I don't see reason to change them.
    Just watch core temps at the first 30 minutes of prime. They should not get above 60c, but up to 70c is still OK (even though may indicate cooling issue)

    If the problem recur, IMO they should replace the M/B, assuming they do see it when you bring it to them.
