  1. Oh! Using CPU-Z, I've got a list of timings. Frequency: 200.9MHz FSB:DRAM CPU/12 CAS# Latency 3.0 clocks RAS# to CAS# Delay 3 clocks RAS# Precharge 3 clocks Cycle Time 8 clocks Bank Cycle Time 7 clocks Command Rate 1T DRAM Idle Timer 256 clocks Oh, and boywander, I'm going to go ahead and run my RAM sticks individually in the second orange slot. More info tomorrow! Well, later on today, rather. Edit: Nix that, since the system doesn't even boot with a RAM stick only in the second orange slot.
  2. Ah, I am sorry, but since I am not entirely sure as to which exact values you are looking for, I jotted down a handful that seemed pertinent. If you need anything else, then please say so and I'll get it ASAP. FSB Bus Frequency: 200MHz CPU/FSB Frequency ratio: Auto PCI eXpress Frequency: 100MHz DRAM Frequency Set: by DRAM SPD Value Command per clock: Auto CAS latency: Auto RAS to CAS delay: Auto (many things in the DRAM configuration screen are set to auto) CPU Core Voltage: Auto LDT Bus Voltage: 1.20V Chipset Voltage: 1.50V DRAM Voltage Control: 2.60V (The currently values of the voltages while in the BIOS screen were a bit higher than that, I.E. 1.20V -> 1.22V) To the second person, I have not tried the memory sticks, individually, on the other orange slot, and memtest did not seem to come up with any errors, even when I was using both RAM sticks. Thanks all!
  3. I am using both the orange slots, and I've maintained the default optimized settings for the BIOS.
  4. Alright! I previously made a post that garnered one reply, and I have taken that into consideration. However, before I spend any more money on getting new RAM or a PSU, I would like to include some new information that I have gathered. Previously, I was running two 512MB Kingston ValuRam sticks, and I was getting a multitude of BSOD's, and game and program crashes. Now, I decided to take one stick of RAM out and run my computer on one stick. Wow, it made a great difference. I no longer had any BSOD's, and my games never crashed, albeit they did freeze a bit since I was running at half the memory I'd usually run at. Additionally, I ran Prime95 and CPU Stability Test and they all came out great with no errors (8 hours worth). So I then thought it was one stick of RAM that was bad. I was wrong. I replaced the first stick of RAM with the second stick, and it mimicked the joyous feeling of having a stable computer again! No system crashes, no game crashes, no program crashes. I did Prime95 and CPU Stability Test again, and it came out great with no errors (again, 8 hours). To get to the point, my computer becomes unstable when two sticks of RAM are used, but perfectly fine when only one is used. Any explanations to this? Thanks!
  5. Luckily for me, I have a spare, solid (albeit slower) computer from which to depend on, but it just doesn't have what it takes to play the games I'd like to play. My newer computer, as shown by my signature, does. However, it seems to be quite unstable. I.E. BSODs and programs randomly shutting down. Now, I RMA'd virtually every piece of that computer aside from the case and the power supply. The RAM, CPU, GPU, and mobo have all be RMA'd, yet problems still persist. I built the computer last year in April and it ran smoothly until the last FIFA World Cup match between France and Italy. Ever since, I haven't managed to keep it from crashing a program or incurring a BSOD for more than a day. So far, with my GPU being the last component RMA'd, I encountered three BSOD's, which are as listed 1. Something to do with nv4_disp.dll 2. PFN_List_Corrupt 3. Memory_Management Now, I initially had an Opteron 148, but the chaps at AMD sent me an Opteron 150 for a replacement because they were short on Opteron 148's. DFI sent me back an SLI-DR Expert as a replacement for my Ultra-D, so I should change that in my signature. I'm just really trying to figure out what's wrong with this computer. Is it possible that a faulty PSU could be causing my misfortunes? Or would it be a complex set of driver problems? I've reformatted countless times, and the problems still persisted. I'm sorta out of ideas, so if any of ya'll could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
  6. To start off, I can't figure out the BIOS on the computer in question because all I get is a black screen when I press the power button; that, and a continuous stretch of beep. It had worked fine for 2 months until a series of sudden power failures in my apartment messed it up. After the power failures, my system stalled when trying to load the OS. I removed the HDD from that computer and placed it into this one and tried loading this system's OS, only to encounter the same problem. So I put the HDD back into the non-working computer and started trying to fix it. So, I did a Windows repair, but then it froze near the end. After restarting again, the system failed to even show a screen. Sometimes, the computer would stall with 2 out of the 4 lights on. Other times, it would stall with 1 out of the 4 lights on. I resetted the CMOS countless times, but to no advail. I'm presuming some sort of electricial surge (from the power outtages) had damaged a component (or components), but I'm not sure which. So I put that hard drive back into this computer, and I loaded the OS perfectly fine (I presume the Windows repair succeeded). So I'm just wondering which part or parts are possibly damaged, or if I just have to do something else to them without sending them back to the manufacturer. Sorry in advance if I left any important information out. Thanks!
