  1. I haven't but most will do 250Mhz. Did you have the PC4000 HZ? If so I would have thought that they would match the spec or offer the next best equivalent.
  2. Hello, http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showpost.p...705&postcount=4 What happens if you remove the GFX card and power the PC. Do you see a different LED combination? Also try just 1 memory module in the top orange slot.
  3. This is no longer a DFI support forum, This is DFI's new forum. http://csd.dficlub.org/forum/index.php Feel free to go there and tell them what you think about their products. If you have downloaded the manual, page 63. http://www.dfi.com.tw/Upload/Manual/lputnf4%20847505101.pdf
  4. Hello, Have you overclocked the GFX card? Does it happen in all games? Does it happen instantly? A weak power supply can cause the gfx card to show screen corruption. Also what are the temps, CPU/PWM/Chipset.
  5. Master Boot Record. A very simple explanation, The MBR is like a list. It stores information relating to the hard drive partitions. When you boot from a drive it reads the MBR first. This then tells the PC which partition to boot from. When you install Windows XP it changes the MBR If you then install XP 64 on another Partition it changes the MBR so that it points to the XP64 partition first. If you backup the XP MBR then install XP 64 and replace the MBR with the XP one you will not be able to boot into XP 64. And depending on when you created the partitions you may lose them by restoring the older MBR. Altering the MBR is unavoidable. Playing with the MBR is something you should not do.
  6. How did you manage to say what I was thinking? :confused: When do you overclock? - When I specifically purchase the parts with the intention to OC. - When I have had the parts for a while and want to give it a performance boost. - When I want a fast pc but don't want to spend a lot of money. - When I know that the product will OC and achieve the same performance as the higher end version. - Hello my name is (insert name here) and I'm an addict.
  7. Hello, Linux and sharing partitions with windows can be very tricky and sometimes does not work, the last version of unbuntu had such issues. It would be easier to have each OS on a different hard drive. 1 = Windows XP / XP 64 2 = Vista 64 3 = Partition 1 = 4GB, XP/XP64/vista can all use this as the page file. Unpartitioned space = leave for Linux, it will setup the partitions and it's pagefile. 4 = Storage, also back up important files to DVD/Flash drive/other PC. By using a RAID 0 config if the boot drives go you will lose everything. And if the Raid controller fails you may lose both arrays. Also should you wish to reinstall one of the OS's it will be a lot easier. When you share a drive the last OS you install may change the MBR. Then if for some reason it goes corrupt the others may be unbootable. By having each one on their own drive you can avoid this, just make sure that you only have 1 drive plugged in at a time when you install each OS. Then if you want to create a bootmenu you can edit the linux bootloader (Grub menu) to list all the drives/OS's to choose from. Obviously that is how I would set up the drives
  8. Hello, After any BIOS flash you should turn off and clear the CMOS for a few minutes. Just move the CMOS jumper to the clear position and wait 10mins. After the 10mins move it back to the save position. Power the PC and enter the BIOS. Load optimised defaults. Then go the CMOS RELOADED section. For each profile save the current settings. This will over write all the previous settings with the new BIOS settings. Do not attempt to load an old profile that was saved from another BIOS. Then save and exit. Now you can enter the BIOS and do as you wish. Row Cycle time (Trc) = 10 (11) Row refresh cyc time (Trfc) = 16 (14) Row to Row delay (Trrd) = 03 (02) Refresh Period (Tref) = 3072 (AUTO/1560/2064 DRAM Drive Strength = level 7 (Level 8) DRAM Data Drive Strength = level 2 (Level 3) What happens if you use the current settings but change the ones I mentioned above? As long as the chipset temp stays under 52DC it will be ok.
  9. This is exactly what overclocking is about, saving money but at the same time getting the most performance out of it. :cool:
  10. Hello, Try again, uninstall all the ATi drivers. Make sure everything else is ok (like the nvidia drivers) Then when you install the ati drivers, install all 3 components. - Display driver - Control center - WDM driver Then see what happens after the restart.
  11. From what I can see its a 1.0a spec. http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/Produc...5E14607,00.html
  12. If you go on a website which does have something harmful you will not know about it. How many times have you in the past searched for something in Google and when you pressed on the link beep beep beep detection? (I have) http://www.avira.com/en/pages/index.php This is a very good free AV program to use. Have you recently started to use a router? Without one so much junk comes in through the internet connection, this may be the reason why it seems better?
  13. Your links are not working. For SLi you should match for the best possible performance however nvidia claim it can be done using coolbits. http://www.slizone.com/page/slizone_faq.html#c10
  14. Hello, Some KT133A boards did, if you plan to mix it will not work. I wouldn't recommend it. You must get unbuffered memory. Do not get buffered (aka Registered) memory.
  15. http://www.memory-configurator.co.uk/produ..._kit/index.html If you are going to OC try and get a PC4000 2x1GB kit. The above one should have Samsung UCCC chips.
  16. Not a bad price from overclockers. http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=MY-022-GS
  17. Could be your power supply, how old is it and what is the wattage?
  18. Do you have any other memory modules that you can try? Some settings for you to test. GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration..................Press Enter = New Menu FSB BUS Frequency....................200 LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio..............X 5.0 LDT BUS Transfer Width...............16 16 CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio..............AUTO PCI eXpress Frequency................100Mhz K8 Cool 'n' Quiet Support............Disable Cool 'n' Quiet MAX FID...............AUTO CPU VID StartUp Value................StartUp CPU VID Control......................AUTO CPU VID Special Control..............AUTO LDT Voltage Control..................1.20 V Chip Set Voltage Control.............1.50 V DRAM Voltage Control.................2.70 V Run MemTest86+.......................Enabled, disable later GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ).............200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01) Command per clock (CPC)..............Disabled Cas latency (tCL)....................3 RAS to CAS delay (tRCD)..............3 Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........8 Row precharge time (tRP).............3 Row cycle time (tRC).................11 Row refresh cycle time(tRFC).........14 Row to Row delay (tRRD)..............2 Write recovery time (tWR)............3 Write to read delay (tWTR)...........AUTO Read to write delay (tRWT)...........AUTO Refresh period (tREF)................AUTO Write CAS latency (tWCL).............1 DRAM Bank Interleave.................Enabled DQS Skew Control.....................AUTO DQS Skew Value.......................0 DRAM Drive Strength..................Level 8 DRAM Data Drive Strength.............Level 3 Max Async Latency....................6ns Dram Response........................Normal Read Preamble Time...................5ns Idle Cycle Limit.....................AUTO Dynamic Counter......................AUTO R/W Queue Bypass.....................AUTO Bypass Max...........................AUTO 32 Byte Granularity..................AUTO
  19. np, On to your other issue, (Realtek/Linux) Because they are not true hardware sound cards it can only play 1 channel at a time. It uses software to mix the channels and tries to play more than 1 channel. So if you find that playing a mp3 whilst running another app (which plays sound) results in no sound in one it is because of this. ( If you could get the XFi to work under Linux it would be much better.
  20. The memory controller is actually on the CPU, any further details on his problem? If you get the same diagnostic LEDs it could mean the GFX card is the issue. Is it possible to test the gfx card in another PC?
  21. Also make sure you have all the power connectors plugged into the board. - 24pin ATX - 4pin +12v P4 - Molex on top the chipset fan - Molex under the CPU socket If you have 2 memory modules just use 1 and place it in the top orange slot. 3rd time lucky, What power supply do you have? (wattage/brand)
  22. Hello, What happens if you power the board with just the CPU/memory and no GFX card. Do you still see the same LED combination.
  23. Hello, Do you have the front case audio connector connected to the Audio module? Does the Audio module still have 2 blue jumpers on it? Uninstall all the audio drivers and try the latest Realtek ones. Mirrors ftp://202.65.194.212/pc/audio/WDM_A403.exe ftp://61.56.86.122/pc/audio/WDM_A403.exe ftp://202.65.194.211/pc/audio/WDM_A403.exe
  24. Your chipset is hot, I assume that is the pc doing nothing.
