    Default Periodic BSODs, failure to boot, wierd internet

    <hr style="color: rgb(209, 209, 225); background-color: rgb(209, 209, 225);" size="1"> In the summer I built myself a computer, and ever since then I've been getting the occasional BSOD. The frequency of the darn things is variable, and at first I didn't really care. A crash every two or three hours wasn't really noticable when I was busy being ecstatic about being able to play tf2 with a framerate.

    However, it's been going on and on, and I am just not sure what to do anymore. I've tried all kinds of things.

    1. Tried reinstallation of windows. No help.
    2. Ran memtest and windows diagnostics, no problems found.
    3. Ran full antivirus scan, no help.
    4. Reformatted hard drive just to be really sure. Still no help.
    5. Tried increasing DRAM voltage from 1.5 to 1.6, no change.
    6. Tried increasing QPI voltage by increments; system at first continued to bluescreen but then only became more unstable and began freezing without bluescreening. (Ultimate max voltage was well below the red)
    7. Tried removing RAM. System was even more unstable with only one stick of RAM.
    8. Tried disabling EIST, no change.

    Bluescreens appear to be random and unrelated to computer activity; I havn't gone as far as making a spreadsheet (yet) so I can't say for sure that they're random but I certainly can't find a pattern. I've gotten crashes while playing video games, while idling at the login menu, while writing word documents, while plugged in or not plugged in to the internet, even in safe mode. I've also had days where the computer worked fine and days where it gave six crashes in an hour.

    Also, it's recently (a month ago or so) decided it really hates starting up. It'll either hang forever at the "Loading windows" screen or bluescreen in the seconds between the loading windows and the login screen. If it actually gets to the login screen, it works fine until the next random crash. Usually it takes about three tries to boot, give or take three. This started the day I had the president of the university computer club configure my BIOS (He said it would help!) and since then I've reset them all to default but the problem persists.

    At around the same time it stopped booting correctly, it also started behaving very oddly concerning the internet. Download speeds from Steam look like a heart monitor, with it alternating between around 700 KBS and 0. Downloading through firefox simply doesn't work; it either says "Download starting" for all eternity, or starts the download and then promptly stops. When it stops a download in progress, the readout stays the same; Firefox continues to insist that it is downloading a such-and-such a speed and will be done in 7 minutes or whatever. Tested with internet explorer and got the same issue. Youtube videos will load the first few seconds instantly and then refuse to download the rest. Also, the Steam downloads invariably wind up with half the files corrupt once I go to verify. Friend suggested it was probably the motherboard's netcard dying.

    Here's my current system:

    Caviar Hard Drive 1.5TB
    DDR3-1333 RAM from Corsair
    Gigabyte Motherboard
    i7 860 Processor 2.8GHz
    GeForce GTX 470

    Coolermaster 212 fan

    Acer 21" 1920 x 1080 Monitor
    Corsair 750W power supply
    DVD/CD reader

    Use the link in my sig to get a bios template for you system and full it out completely with your current bios settings. Also There is a link for BSOD error codes. Have you tried running any stability test like linX or Prime95? Try running 20 passes of LinX make sure to click the button for All Ram to be used. If you use Prime95 use the blend test and let it run for 6-12hrs. Make sure you have a temp program running at the time of testing like Real Temp or Core Temp to monitor core temps dont let them go over 80c.

    First I would fully clear the cmos by removing the mb battery and leave it out overnight just to be 100% sure,then I would flash to the latest bios and then load optimized defaults,then start up pc and see if its still crashing

    LINx ran twenty passes (with memory set to ALL) with no errors.

    I'd been sitting next to the computer reading my history homework and I glanced over, noticed it was done, and a second later I got a BSOD. (Error code 1x01E). Whoop, just crashed again, got a 1x3B

    I guess I'll start looking into how to remove mobo memory and flash bios, then.

    see my red below, but your uncore needs to be 2x your memory or 2x+1...

    so your memory is 10 so your uncore needs to be 20 or 21.
    1x3B is a memory related error...

    I'd start with that, or set it to Auto.

    Do you mean 0x1E = increase vcore

    0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x (Uncore MUST be 2x memory multi or higher lower will failt to boot expt for i7-970-990x cpus)
    0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore

    When you posted you bios settings is that how it is exactly in you bios? what is your memory multi? Is vcore on auto? Never use auto for voltages always set manually for the Important voltages. What ever voltage auto is setting start by setting that manually then up it 2 to 4 notches. QPI/VTT voltage MUST be no less then 0.50 of your vdimm. Your ram is rated at 1.6v set vdimm to 1.6 and Manually set your timings 9-9-9-24

    Try 1.2-1.3v for QPI/VTT

    Gidday @Wazza been a while!! In 40 minutes will start to watch Malinga the Slinger take on Australia!!
    Anyway I have gone back to having grief with my Mobo! Personally still think it is a manufacturing issue! It all comes down to the fact it was:
    1\ returned by a franchise to the Gigabyte warehouse to be forwarded to me when I won that comp.!
    2\ sent to me in opened packaging and....
    3\ understand it still has a 3 yr warrantee from Gigabyte cos I won it from Gigabyte!
    4\ not a good look when you win something that might be defective! Funniest thing I was so happy cos I could step up from an GA X48 DS4 Mobo to this?


    Spent quite some time reloading BIOS and other things if you might recall??

    Would put it this way cos I raised the issue and have stated it would have been better to have had the Mobo sent direct from Taiwan still sealed in packaging!
    Then I wouldn't have a reason to whinge or be a bit suspicious! It might even work correctly! Would also point out my old X48 Mobo never missed a beat and now is in my Mums computer! And it still never misses a beat! Never had so much grief with a computer til now with this Mobo issue!!
    Will also note I saw the new forum regarding RMA from "Mr Tweak" wasn't it and laughed! This board got RMA several times with no problem found apparently.
    Guess this is not a technical question anymore but more to do with the business practices of certain branches of Gigabyte?

    Will also add I bought new a 1Tb HDD and a Dlink network card just to try and resolve this problem not to mention reloaded WinXP several times on a clean disk and played with Vista! So why do I have these issues on this particular Mobo?
    Regards
    Not so happy Winner
    I do like and trust Gigabyte products but this does not make me happy!!

    And it just BSOD on me but couldnt read the error cos it flashed by me!! The way the Mobo should work!! Fast!! But why does it do that? At the present point in time this X58 is doing stop\start when I type and my internet connection is the same!! Something is wrong with either manufacture or the low level programming (BIOS) or hard wired programmng of this board!!
    @Wazza I know how long it takes a capacitor to discharge so 24 hrs amuses me!! Remember your old TV? Still I turned this damn computer thing off for 18 hours and made no damn difference!! I have done power off etc (switch on NRP PSU)
    And also hello "Tha Man who wants ACID fast" @lsdmenow Gidday!!
