Well, it would certainly help if you posted a sig file so we know what components you have. What kind of power supply do you have?, etc. This information will help us. Are all 4 power conns plugged in?

Actually Crus, you need to put it in your signature. This shows you how.

Threads can get long and it gets annoying to have to go back in the thread to see what hardware you have. When it is in your signature we can see it every time you post.

 

A couple of questions for you.

What BIOS are you running?

 

Which NVidia NForce drivers are you using? Which ones did you install?

 

When you cleared the CMOS did you go into the BIOS and load Optimized defaults?

 

Which slots are your memory in?

 

That should get us going at least.

Bios erm...

The one released by DFI, the latest new one I think

 

I installed the Nforce drivers of my DFI CD

 

Memory in slots 2 & 4 (Dual channel)

 

I have loaded optimized defaults...

 

Where can I update my Nforce drivers?

OK, if you haven't updated your BIOS you probably either have 3/10-3 or 1/25-3. Both are old. To find out what version you have you need to go into BIOS and turn off the LANPARTY Splash screen. I think it is on the Advanced settings screen, but I am not sure at the moment. Then when you reboot there will be a date in the lower left corner of the screen. That is your BIOS version.

 

You can get the NForce drivers from the NVidia website.

You can also get CPU-Z and goto mainboard it will tell you same thing. (If you have bios that came with mobo you are going to want to flash it).Get it at http://www.cpuid.org/cpuz.php nice little util..will show you alot about your system. Have you tried 1 stick of ram? Have you tested your system for stability? If in windows try this, its more sensitive than dos memtest (if you can boot into windows) http://www.hcidesign.com/memtest/ see if you can run 8 hours of this with no errors. Seems like you have some sort of instability issue and I would first look to ram
