    ET6 does not provide the information that is reported by Memset.

    I downloaded and installed Sisoftware Sandra and it did not report the needed info.

    Aida64 Extreme might report the information but it cost $40. You can download it and use it as a 30-day free trial.

    If you are concerned with losing your desktop icon organization, try this free program which I've been using for several years to save and restore my icon order:
    Desktop Icon Save and Restore - MIDI-OX

    Desktop Restore: DesktopRestoreInstall.exe (Win 7, Win 8, Win 8.1)
    Note: New dual mode installer. Contains x64 and x86 versions. It will install the appropriate version for your OS.
    Tested under Win 7 and Win 8.1, but may also work on earlier versions of Windows.

    Does above memset look ok? I had for the first time a lockup streaming after streaming 2 hours of Amazon.
    During reboot I got a BIOS screen stating that default values are loaded. Not sure if this is related or not.

    The Memset screenshot looks good, but....you should always include the settings for both memory channels by pressing the ">>" button to the right of the SPD button. With the EP45 motherboards, some of the memory related settings can be set differently for memory channel A and memory channel B, and this should not be done unless you really know what you are doing. My screenshot in post #2 includes Memset's information for both memory channels.

    When you get a BSOD or system freeze you should check the windows Event Viewer to see if there are warning or error messages immediately before the problem occurred. If there is a BSOD, programs like WhoCrashed or BlueScreenView can provide information that often helps determine what caused the problem.

    When you get a message that the default values have been loaded, you should immediately go into the bios to see if the previous settings are still displayed. If they are unchanged you should save settings and exit the bios to restore the displayed settings. You can save up to eight different bios profiles in the bios. When you have different saved bios settings you can load the saved settings that you want to use. Check your motherboard user manual in the bios chapter to read about how to use the F11 and F12 function keys to Save CMOS to Bios and Load CMOS from Bios in the main Bios screen. I always have one reserved saved bios profile slot for saving and loading temporary bios profile settings when I'm making and testing new settings.

    I checked the event viewer, with no info other than the critical "unexpected reboot". WhoCrashed didn't find anything either. Looks like this crash did not produce a dmp.

    I went back to the BIOS. The first screen I got was: "The system experienced boot failure to overclocking or changes of voltages". The settings were are still present. And after rebooting I have my memory again at 1066.

    Here is the memset with both banks:

    Thanks again for all your help.

    It looks like all three BSOD's are related to the graphics card driver.

    Have you or windows update recently installed a newer version of the graphics driver?
    Have you made any other recent hardware or software changes to your system?
    Sometimes the latest graphics driver version doesn't work well.

    You did not include the brand and model of your AMD graphics card in your PC Specs.
    It is always best to fill in all of the items in PC Specs.

    Your ET6 voltages show that your DRAM voltage is set to 1.90 volts.
    With 4 x 2GB of 1066MHz memory you probably need 2.00 volts or slightly higher.
    Also try setting MCH Core voltage to 1.20 volts, but if your system has trouble booting, reset this to AUTO or 1.10 volts.
    I don't recall if your version 1.6 motherboard allows MCH Core settings higher than 1.10 and lower than 1.20 volts.

    I updated my profile, the video card is: HIS Radeon HD 6570

    I double-checked the BIOS for the DRAM voltage. BIOS has 2.0V configured. ET6 shows power-up voltage at 1.8V and target at 2.0V. So, is the Mobo not taking 2.0V
    (BTW., why not going to 2.2V?)



    I have made several changes to system.
    - Starting with the need for a new drive due a drive dying. Cloning to a Samsung SSD
    - figured that the TV recording drive also starting to have some bad blocks, figured since I have the box open I change the WDC Green 1TB to a WDC red 3TB
    - also installed a new BD drive
    - and of course adding 4GB of the same RAM which triggered this thread.

    And yes, I did update the AMD driver to the latest. Frankly, I don't know what I had last.

    The problem with NOT uploading images in a post is that it's easy to overlook an updated image.
    You provided http://forums.tweaktown.com/attachme...-a-voltage-pdf in post #6 about a week ago and the screenshot shows that the Power On (default) voltage is 1.80 volts and the ET6 Target DRAM voltage is 1.90 volts . The ET6 Power On voltage is not important and the Target voltage is the applied or working voltage.

    Why not 2.20 volts for memory? Because more is not always better and the goal with bios voltages is to use the lowest voltage that gives you stability. You're free to try more than 2.00 volts for your memory, but keep in mind that each voltage increment is 0.02 volts higher or lower and that there are 50 different settings if you want to go higher or lower by 1/10 of a volt. Higher voltage settings equals more heat and shorter component life. If any voltage settings are too low, your system will not be stable.

    How long did you use the previous AMD video driver. A ballpark estimate should help you determine which older driver version you used by looking at the release dates for the older drivers. The only other option is to keep trying different older driver versions. Most newer video drivers have improvements and gaming enhancements for current video card models and slightly older models. I never let Windows Update automatically update non-windows drivers.

    I will try 2.1V and see if it makes a difference. I might also go back to the default RAM settings as a test.

    I am currently using driver 15.20 which appears to be the latest one, despite its date from 08/2015.
    My guess is that I used the previous drivers for several years. I tend not to update drivers without reason on this MediaCenter PC setup.
