  1. The windows splash screen where the blue indicator goes left to right. Takes about 28 passes again. Back up from 15 :(

     

    I really don't want to reformat again. I Primed this overnight for 10 hours, did testing of both cores with OCCT and SUPERPI also so I think its stable enough for me. Don't feel like reformatting just to save 10-15 seconds off windows load time. I was just wondering if there was some tweak to make it faster though. As long as I'm not the only one that is loading slow with dual-core, I guess I'm fine with that.

     

    And what was your question? I only saw that you asked if I was SP1 or SP2. I answered that previously, Sp2.

     

    I had the same problem as you had, what exactly made the blue bar make 3 passes rather than 28 passes?

     

    I installed the Nvidia IDE Drivers...

    I know a lot of people here advised against it....but at this point you got nothing to loose....


  2. [quote=dopke

    I followed the procedure indicated in another thread for going to dual-core without reinstalling windows. Anyone know what the problem could be?

     

    Yes...the problem is you installed windows when you had a single core CPU, therefore, installing the ACPI for single core CPU....so, fater changing to dual core, your ACPI is for a single core...

     

    long story short...your windows is optimized for single core....not dual core....

    So I'd reinstall it If I were you...


  3. I sold my X2 3800 to buy the opty165 too

    Very happy with the results...

    Reached 2.6100mhz (290X9) on 1,45V

    idle temps 34C and load 46C at 25C ambient temperature

    I know I could have pushed to 2,7, but it required a lot more voltage to be worth the trouble....


  4. The Updated USB drivers come with Service Pack 2 if I'm not mistaken, and since they are in fact UNIVERSAL, it shouldn't cause the problems you're having....so I'd try out the CAMERA drivers....that came with the CD....not the newest ones from the website....I had a similar problem with my quickcam messenger....and it only worked properly with the drivers on the original CD....go figure...


  5. It seems all the problems an error messages are related to the graphic subsystem, now do you have anybody you know that has an nvidia card? you can maybe swap temporarily with a friend of yours for the sake of testing your card in his system and his in yours....if the VGA is the issue your friend will surely have problems and you won't ....


  6. NO! Don't reformat just yet...there's a last ressource..

    keep pressing F8 before windows loads and it should prompt you with a boot menu....choose "last known good configuration" and see if that helps.....


  7. If your system is not stable all kinds of weird messages can arise...did you try and run a prime95 on both cores?

    Since you changed CPUs that means also changing memory controllers...you may try resetting your RAM to auto on all values except the 4 main values...and then tweak from there...

    I swapped my x2 3800+ for a dual core Opteron 165....I had the "max assynch latency" set in the bios to 6

    once I popped in the new opty...the system didn't boot...lol

    after some tweaking I found out that the lower it likes for max assync latency with my memory is 7.....go figure...


  8. Well, not to sound like an @55, but whether or not it sees 3GB or not you still need a different OS to be able to take advantage of 4GB of RAM.

     

    Yes, but XP 32 should recognize 3.25gbs.....

    the OS limit is adressability, not identification of the RAM per se...his system basically is ignoring 2 ram sticks.....

     

    And answering the question of the first message...I have never seen this before, maybe the mobo doesn't like two different manufaturers and memory chips, the only thing I can suggest you is try mix and match the sticks...swap the pair that is in the orange slots to the yellow slots and vice-versa...


  9. Ok, so for instance, I have a notebook computer and i have my Altec Lansing FX-6021 speakers (very high quality) plugged into the heaphone jack on the side of the notebook. Would the Ultra-D's onboard sound be just as good, if not better, than that?...

     

    Well that depends....you told me you have a kick butt set of speakers but you didn't say anything about the actual sound card of the notebook....

     

    we're talking about the karajan module here, not quality of speakers


  10. Onboard sound is major suck on these boards IMO. I dont know if it has to do with the karajan module not being 100% compatible with nvidia but.. I had nothing but issues with it. Took me forever to figure out how to get spdif to work (if you do a search not even the forum mods know how...) games crackled, lossless music sounded very compressed and crackly etc. SPDIF isn't compatible with the Realtek drivers so I wonder how much testing went into the actual karajan module and it's implementation.

     

    The Karajan "module" is nothing but a solution to reduce noise and EMI from the actual mobo PCB and it does so reducing CPU cycle usage....

    SPDIF is nothing but a conection...using digital signals...

     

    The onboard sound works fine for me...the ALC850 is not as nice as the newer high definitions but is not as bad as you portrait....
