    Default GA-EP45P-UD3LR S3 Standby Issues

    Hi All<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    After around 6 months of trying different hardware etc, I am 100% sure that I don’t have a hardware issue, and there are settings within the BIOS that may require tweaking.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The machines sole purpose is for Windows 7 Media Centre 32bit. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    My issue is that typically when the machine is put to sleep overnight, it powers off fully during the night - by this I mean that I can’t use the remote to power the machine back on - but I can use the power button on the case, and the machine will go through POST etc, then prompt if I want to boot in to safe mode etc.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    When the machine goes in to standby, if you wake the machine it will normally resume alright - therefore it seems to be somehow related to how long the machine is in standby for.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The machine was running the F5 BIOS, and I have recently updated to the F10 BIOS, however this hasn't improved anything.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Performance isnt key for this machine - stability and standby is...<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Any assistance that anyone could provide would be excellent.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Thanks<o:p></o:p>
    David<o:p></o:p>

    If left on overnight does it stays on? I mean there are no power outage of any kind?

    Have you applied any changes in BIOS MIT section and wich if you have, or fo you just use optimized or failsafe defaults and which?

    Hi, no power outages - the system is on a UPS.

    I have tried Optimized and failsafe, along with the following changes:

    PCI Express Freqency to 100Mhz
    CPU Vcore 1.275000V
    MCH Core 1.2000V
    ICH I/O 1.550V
    ICH Core 1.100V
    DRAM Voltage 1.800V

    Thanks

    It came in a kit - TWIN2X4096-6400C5, which contains 2 x CM2X2048-6400C5 modules

    Info can be found here: http://www.corsair.com/products/xms2/default.aspx

    Thanks, here is the PDF in case you need it ever
    http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/CM2X2048-6400C5.pdf

    So hey, 4GB or 8GB? You said 2 x CM2X2048-6400C5 which looks like it might be 2x 4GB so I wanted to be sure

    If only 4GB the above settings should be ok and resume from sleep for you.

    Total of 4GB - dont know what part of Corsairs website to believe.... the PDF refers 'Tested at JEDEC standard latency settings (5-5-5-18) at 1.9V', there website says 'Tested Latency 5-5-5-18 & Tested Voltage 1.8'

    The module itself says 1.80V - however at 1.8V wont come out of standby, even after a few minutes - hence the voltage now been set to 1.9v...

    And this solves the problem?
