    Default Couple issues out of no where :(

    I power on my PC daily, over the last 2 months, on two occasions when I went to power on my pc, before it got to the windows loading screen, it powerd off and restarted.

    Other then those two instances, everything has been fine, until last night.

    I booted into windows and immediatly got a ( BSOD - Memory Management Error )

    Seem kinda odd considering I can run LinX and Prime95 for HOURS on end without any issues.

    I loosened my memorys adv timings last night just in case. 5-5-8-56-5. Not sure if that will make any difference or not.

    I also took the liberty to down load Memtester. After 3 hours of testing and going through all 4GB of my memory, it found -0- errors.

    *shrug* so Im at a loss here.

    Just in case it had to do with pagefile or virtual memory, I uncheck ( let windows automatcially control ) and hard set it at 250MB to 6141MB.


    Any other ideas? I did run a windows update late last night. AFTER all of this. The only other thing I can think of is PSU?? Maybe?!

    Any assistance or tips/ideas would be great, thanks.

    I guess the windows updated I ran late last night was supposed to address quite a few issues. Hopefully it will be as simple as that..

    Again, if anyone encountered this problem before.. by all means.. share your knowledge ;)

    give Memtest86+ a try. I like it better then the programs that run within windows, seems to find more errors. There is also a small guide on how to use Memtest86+ in one of the stickies, might have to search around in them for the details.
    Not sure if I misread, but did you try "default" settings for your hardware? Could be be higher or lower ambient/hardware temps and the OC is failing.

    Not a PSU guru, but wouldn't a bad PSU just shutoff without a BSOD? Maybe a driver issue, try checking the "event viewer" and see when the BSOD occurred and what caused it. Most of the time it will just give some generic error, but you might get lucky and find the root cause.

    sorry could not been of more help, hope you get it fixed

    here is the small guide for memtest by "Lsdmeasap"

    Memtest86+ (Memory Testing)

    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool Download

    When doing basic tests on new ram or just for general testing purposes you should let the test run on it's own for a few hours up to 24 if you have the time and don't mind.

    When you are tweaking timings and just need some quick answers you can quickly see if your recent changes have made your ram unstable by choosing certain tests. Some say their own set of test #'s to use and they may differ from my own, so if you see someone else suggesting test #'s they that would be fine as well to, it is up to you.

    What test #'s I use for basic speed testing to see if recent changes are causing errors quickly are #'s 2 & 5. I run test #2 for about 10 minutes and if I see no errors I will then run test #5 for a hour or so. If no errors are found then your changes are likely ok for the time being. Longer tests will let you know for sure though, but like I said here we are speed testing while doing a little bit of tweaking. If it is going to fail you think and are not so sure let #5 run for a while. It will fail on #5 if it is going to fail.

    Below are Some BIOS examples, Sorry for the Resolutions I did not take them mys

    I actually found an update to my audio drivers. I installed that today along with reloading optimized settings in my bios. Then I set everything back again from scratch. So far, so good. Ran LinX64 for 30min ( 3GB memory blocks ) then I ran prime95 blends for 4 hours. No issues at all.

    *shrug*

    We shall see.

    Did you check all the settings on the saved bios you use to make sure nothing has changed?.
    What did you do on the windows loading screen,go for repair or start windows normally?
    With win 7 I had to get access to a lot of folders with "take ownership" to remove a lot of temp files.
    The new audio drivers : new realtek ones?
    (Im just wondering for my own use ,since the prob seems to be fixed now.)

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
