  1. -Offtopic question- Sorry abt this, but i know there are alot of peeps posting here with T7K250 drives. I will be very quick. Every now and again a loudish clicking sound comes from my hard drives. It only 'clicks' once. What do I mean when I say every now and again? Well it can happen once a day, once every few days, the periods are quite far apart. I did some googling but u can imagine typing clicking and hitachi together, well....... Is this normal? Or should i be worried?
  2. Cool, going to check now! You know wht stepping these are, Europe seems to hae 0550UPMW's which seem to be pretty good -EDIT- Just checked, only seem to have the 180
  3. Hello, could you explain this comment? Are u assuming it doesnt make a difference, or have you tried with it in and it didnt make a difference. Its the last part which throw's me
  4. All the PSU's I have owned could be jump started by shorting the Green/Black wire in the 24pin molex connector. I wouldnt think the OCZ is any different. Make sure tht none of the cables are attached in you motherboard (or any other devices), take a paper clip, unfold it and stick one end into Green and other end into any of the Black pins. Switch the power button on your PSU. If the PSU is functioning correctly you should be able to see the LED's working and hear/see the fan working
  5. Yup thts confusing me also ABYENS, This statement you made here would suggest tht your ram was NOT stable at the settings you say it was stable at. How did you know tht the ram was stable at 260mhz 2-2-2-5? From your description I would aggress with others tht the ram is the cause of your problems, not the motherboard.
  6. Unlucky dude, is your PSU new, its the first the thing i tend to look at if things start dying in my system. Maybe you should take a look at the rail voltages
  7. Well we need to find a way to repair your install then! The easist way would be to boot up off your XP CD and then choose to repair the install. Im sure some1 mentioned a way to fo the repair without having to do the method i mentioned above, but i cant recall it, sorry. I will have a quick look to see if i can dig anything up, brb -EDIT I cant find the information i was looking for, but ive come across a webpage which you could use http://kadaitcha.cx/corruption.html I think you should read this page and see if it helps, data corruption is not an easy thing to fix unfortunately (actually u can get lucky sometimes, but it depends on the problem)
  8. Have u tried the normal troubleshooting methods, i.e. resetting CMOS?
  9. We need more information to help you, were you overclocking when this was caused, you may have corrupted your OS install
  10. Maybe the mouse driver got corrupt when u used more aggressive timings, just a thought...
  11. Hi I noticed you are running prime95 with small FFT's. You need to be running prime with large FFT's to stress the mem controller on the CPU. Wht cooling are you using? It does seem like a very nice chip, but do test with large FFT's and a game you knows stress's you system. As for the vCore tht is very nice, but u will have a clearer picture im sure after more testing
  12. Not tht i think its going to make any difference to your ovrclk, but you shouldnt be spreading the arctic silver 5 according to the arctic silver website. Wht they say u should do is place a very small dab on the die and use the heatsink pressur to spread the paste. The reason thy suggest not to spread the paste with CC is as not to get air bubbles in the paste. I see tht u are also conscious of the amount of voltage you are using. Where are the values for vCore you are quoting coming from? If they are not from a DMM I would suggest you get your readings with such a device. These boards overvolt quite a bit, my board in particular is quite perculiar. Example vCore reading bios = 1.52v vCore reading DMM idle = 1.55v vCore reading DMM load = 1.58v Dont know if other boards act this way (i started a thread at XS abt this but only one person responded)
  13. ^^^^^^^ my sentiments exactly, its like reading a book then coming to the end and it not having one! Please tell us wht u did to fix the problem
  14. Im very interested in your findings This occurs to me sometimes when coming out of hibernation, I resolved this by unchecking the 'Enable hibernation' tick box, (Right-click>Properties>Screen Saver>Power..>Hibernate) defraging, rebooting then re-enabling the Hibernation option. Havnt tried with standby, I hope 'silly' voltages arent being pushed through our components :eek:
