Random rebooting

Recommended Posts

Ok, my computer has been randomly rebooting about 1-2 after booting into windows. sometimes even sooner. I took out 2 sticks (I have 4x515mb) out of my memory and it still ramdonly shuts now. Now I only put 512mb and it works fine! I have been running memtest indivdually and each stick is error free. So what could be my problem? MY PSU? I have a good PSU OCZ Powerstream

Are all sticks from the same brand/same IC´s? Try to run memtest with 2 sticks in dual channel mode (test #5 + #8 for 10 runs for "quick testing).

What kind of stability testing have you done?

 

Have done a blend test with Prime95?

 

Are all four (4) power connectors plugged in?

 

If you’re overclocking lower it a tad and see if that helps.

No they are not the same brand one. 1 gb is OCZ Platnium 1 gb is Corsairs. Can you explain IC's im not sure are they like IRQ? I cant do Prime95 because it wont stay in windows for it long enough. and im not overclocking ne thing. its because sometimes when i plug in my floppy drive it increases the amount of time my computer will stay on?! its so wierd idk

Well running 4x512 modules of even matched sets can be very difficult. Do your self a favor sell those 512mb RAM and get 2x1GB. Then you can run CPC 1T.

You should get no errors at all no matter how long you run (I run overnight -- at least 8 hours). One error is too many.

 

I'd try the OCZ :)

 

Then I'd checking the stock speed database for setups with the same memory and try their settings. (http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=38)

And, OCZ has a great forum -- you can ask there for settings. Here's a place to start: http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11998

Did you follow the build page? http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20832

 

Have you tried a CMOS clear (like this)? http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showpost.p...04&postcount=24 I'd start with at least 10-15 minutes. (I've seen this clear up more than one set of memory problems). Do not use any saved settings! Load optimized defaults, save, reboot and set then set the paramters. (You cold also try fail-safe defaults and then tweak 'em up if they're stable).

 

Have you checked the stock speed database and tried parameters others are running? http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=38

 

Have you tried reloading your CMOS.

 

Remember that DFI boards are built for people who push the envelope. Their defaults are very agressive -- maybe too agressive a starting point for your system. You may need to back off. You can use a64info (my preference) or a64tweaker to see what the "auto" memory settings are as a starting point for tweaking.
