BuddTX Posted December 11, 2006 Posted December 11, 2006 I had something interesting happen to me this weekend. I had some very stable BIOS settings at 2810 (281x10), but wanted to see if I could go faster. I had saved these "ultra stable" Bios settings a month or so ago, in the BIOS, because I did not want to loose this setting. I played with all kinds of settings, but no matter what I did, Prime95 would fail on Core 1 (Core 0 never gave me an error!) So I gave up, and wanted to go back to my saved, very stable, 2810 settings, tha I have saved in my BIOS. So I just did a LOAD from the BIOS, and re-booted my computer. Then, just for fun, I started Prime95 again, and I started getting errors immediately, on Core 1, just like I was getting when I was trying the higher clock speeds. I re-booted, and again, errors at once on Core 1, with the supposedly "VERY STABLE", 2810 BIOS settings I decided to turn off the PC, and let it sit for a while, (like 30 minutes or so). When I turned it back on, again, Errors again on Prime95 immediately on Core 1. Now I know this setting was rock solid stable before, so in desperation, I decided to open up the case, and clear the CMOS with the jumper. Started it up, Re-Loaded the pre-saved 2810 BIOS settings already stored in the BIOS, and Prime95 ran fine for hours on both cores. Wierd huh? Glad it is fixed, maybe this post will help someone else that might be having the same problem. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
