Blind-Goose Posted December 12, 2005 Share Posted December 12, 2005 Hi. I have build a new pc in April, and in the beginning I had some instability problems, but after reading in this forum, I found out, that I had to low Volts on my RAM, and after changing the Volt, my pc ran great :): but after about 4 month I started getting crashes and BSOF death, when I was gaming, and I tried everything, and eventually I seemed to have found the problem in the Creative driver, and then my pc ran great again, but only for about a month :[pouts: I have not been able to find a solution (I have all the time had a suspicion that my motherboard was the problem, but I have no idea, I have tried all the bios and driver updates, but nothing have helped. I have tried two complete clean install of Windows XP Pro SP2, with new drivers, with and without Win updates, but I get the same results. I have removed my Audigy soundcard, and are using the onboard soundcard, but with no difference. I have run memtest86 all night, with no errors. Today I have had my pc running Prime95 for 10 hours, with no errors. Here is a more detailed description of my problem. Whenever I'm gaming, I can play for about 5 to 10 minutes, and then I either get a crash/black screen, with the sound continuing in the background, and no response form the mouse or keyboard (but after a short time (30 sec) the sound gets louder, and sounds more like when you have forgotten to turn down your amplifier, and mess with the plugs) or I get a BSOD mostly with ati2dvag.dll something with infinite loop, or Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and I have to power-down the pc, then turn off the power for a few minutes, before restarting it again. When I play CoD2 I have started to see some artefacts and triangles on the screen, just before the pc crashes, but that has only just begun within the last couple of days, and my GFX is not getting very hot, around 65-70 C. max. To my surprise I tested bought CoD2 and Quake4 with just one dimm of RAM, and I get no crashes or BSOD, the only difference is that the games take "forever" to load, and the game-play is very choppy a times. I have tested bought dims, no difference. If I play a film/DVD on my pc, it stops responding after a few minutes, and I have to power down, and restart it. Can somebody tell me why I have no problems running with one dimm, but it's not possible to run in dual channel? My pc is not overclocked, the same goes for my GFX. I run my RAM default only change is from T2 to T1 (have tried bought, but it’s the same) Memory runs at 3-3-3-8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
