Downclocking the computer to overclocking it

 

Downclocking the graphics card

 

Changing drivers

 

Checked for spyware

 

Checked for trojans

 

Checked services , used tweaks disabled indexing.. system restore

 

From onboard sound to Xfi sound

 

Passed prime95 torture tests 5hrs+

 

Passed memtest

 

Made sure the cpu had the correct voltages

 

Changed memory timings from loose to strong

 

uninstalled CCC tried ati tray tools

 

Formatted

 

Tried 6.1 and 6.2 drivers

 

Changed hardware acceleration with sound or graphics

 

Disabled write combining

 

Bought a raptor drive put swap file on a different drive Changed ide - sata ports

 

with and without .net

 

===========

 

xvid,divx movies stutter and jerk in the background... games stutter or hitch for the first 5mins... the hard drive gets accessed far more than any of my systems.

 

==============

 

I have noticed things are a little better with 1 ram slot in instead of 2 , the system acts most of the time like its lacking memory and wants to keep accessing the hard drive..... Im really starting to wonder if its the memory causing problems

or is it the Dfi board?!

 

 

PLEASE DONT MOVE THREAD - TIRED OF IT BEING MOVED AND FORGOTTEN ON

THIS FORUM!

 

I dont have dual core and i DONT need a dual core fix :rolleyes:

Another game for example Far Cry...

 

The hard drive light sometimes keeps flashing and you get the stutter like its running out

of ram and going for the page file :(

 

 

edit : yes sound is disabled in bios as with every board ive owned :)

This is crazy man.

 

Hmm what shall we do about this issue.. *ponder*

 

Maybe your Ballistix have sufferd the dreaded instant-death-syndrome (IDS), or in this case, slow-death-syndrome (SDS). Only possible cure for this is RMA.

 

I hope it isn't the case, but what happend with my previous Ballistix set was that I would get hardware crashes (instant reboots, or goofy graphic then instant reboot) when watching movies or running games, the system appeared to be stable otherwise but would show errors in prime, 4m-32m PI and MemTest.

What BIOS version do you use btw?

 

Latest its the newest revision motherboard it came with it :angel:

 

The memory doesnt show any errors in prime or memtest 6 - 10hrs

all clear... thats what i dont understand but the system acts like

it needs more ram :confused:

my x1800 produced horrible stuttering with 5.13 in some games and was practically unplayable with 6.1 but then i found out 6.1 dint support it. have you got 6.2? try reducing your overclock on your card to stock. try also reducing your fsb overclock just slightly. the RAM may handle the clock just fine but applications are peculiar things and can throw out unexpected results from even the most stable RAM. just the other day on here, a guy had memtest stability but 3d05 was crashing - he backed off his fsb by 2 and bingo! no more problem

Read the post people :)

 

p.s that overclock is the officially supported PE bios which ups the voltage and sets

the memory timings the card is no different than the PE card if it has 6 mofsets as a test

i went back to the old bios no change

You said you reformatted, but did you check for this issue immediatly after the reformat, with only the base minimum drivers, etc installed, or did you load everyting and then try it?

I keep a pristine copy of XP SP2 on an old 32 gig drive for just this reason. If I have a strange issue, I disconnect my main HDD and plug in this old one and see if I can dup it. That way I can experiment/isolate on a clean install without totally hosing my main drive over and over.
