Marvell LAN Dying?


Recommended Posts

Well I *had* a stable OCed Venice rig.

 

This PC was Memtest, Prime, OCCT stable overnight, and has never had any issues. I followed a ton of DFI-Street guides for my initial setup - all power cords connected to mobo, incremental stress testing to ensure 100% stability.

 

Last couple weeks I hve had issues with my PC being unstable - reboots, lockups, BSODs. All of the BSODs have been "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" or however it goes. I have had the yk51x86.sys (Marvell) message pop up in 3-4 BSODs, along with one ntfs.sys and one afd.sys (TCP/IP related). The only thing I've changed in this system since the OC was deemed stable was the upgrade from a 6800GT to a 7800 GTX - last summer when it launched.

 

The PC will be stable if I leave it be overnight. Any downloading overnight will cause the instability. I have reinstalled and updated the Marvell drivers. I have even reformatted and reinstalled windows... My HDD has no bad sectors.

 

I've just now swiched to the Nvidia LAN... But does this make sense to anyone? If my PC stays stable overnight should I look at RMAing the board?

 

Thanks!

I had a similar problem as you and i solved it by installing latest nf4 drivers for win64 pro,however i also have the marvell yukon port running instead of the nvidia nforce networking controller(rumor says that the nvidia port is error prone) now when i have my torrent programs running all night(with ports forwarded) they crash after 10-15 minutes,when i have the programs running all night(without the ports forwarded)they work fine, bitcomet and azureus crash after a few minutes and i cant install abc bittorent on the other hand my friend with the exact same OS as me can run these programs fine without a problem i have no idea why.

 

Im in the same boat as you. :rolleyes:

I have no "Lan Marvell" after a clean install, No lights even on that network, drivers are installed, I just can't get it to work;. I know a lot of you like the nVidia how ever it doesnt work well with the game I play..DAoC. To much lag with it..even with the new drivers, will even drop me to the desktop in RvR fight.. It acts like my modem did..

I had no problem with the Marvell at all. it was very stable.. Now having to use the nVidia lan and I hate It...

 

Any one with a suggestion other then do another clean install..

Do you have any IRQ sharing going on?

 

Click START>>All Programs>>Accesories>>System tools>>Sytem infomation.

 

Now click on the + next to hardware resources and expand it, then click on Conflicts/Sharing.

 

Any two devices with the same IRQ? What are they?

I suspect that is your problem right there

 

IRQ 18 Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller

IRQ 18 NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX

 

Disable all the stuff you don't use in the BIOS, like firewire, COM ports and all that stuff before you format your computer next time, this will free up irqs to help avoid these problems in future.

 

For a quick fix, if you are using a USB mouse or keyboard, try switching to one with a PS2 connector, as these get IRQs assigned to them whether they are in use or not, and cannot be disabled in the BIOS.

I can do that on the quick fix I have the G15 Logitech game keyboard and my mouse is attached to it in the back that may free up 2 IRQ then.. I shall try.. I have a lot tied to USB ports printer, keyboard, USB 2.0 extension I unplug them also they can go elsewhere..

BTW doing this will it just free up on boot up or do I need to go in and take them out some how..see 2nd grader here.. on some stuff not all stuff..

Thanks

You will not need to physically remove anything from the system, except perhaps any USB devices you are relocating.

 

Disabling these devices in the BIOS should provide instant results when booting back into windows, some things require a complete OS re-install though. Not sure which to be honest. My pc is not used for work and is backed up regularly so I didn't mind doing a full format.

It generally ok for IRQ sharring to occur but not for high-end vga cards.
