Computer Freezes in BIOS - Intel DG965RY


Recommended Posts

This one is a weird one, when I spend a bit of time in the BIOS - just going through the settings. I find that sometimes my computer will lock up, I press keys on my keyboard and nothing changes on the BIOS screen and only a hard reset brings it back. Yet I'm in Windows Vista now - did a Memory Check Diagnostic and the computer is completely stable and reliable. Really weird!


Some info from DXDiag:

This seems to occur most often when I browse through the Hardware Monitoring part of the BIOS but many times when I check the RAM Configuration part of the BIOS too. :[pouts:


And I am running the very latest BIOS.


RAM is Corsair VS2GBKIT667D2 x2 = 4GB DDR2 RAM

This sounds as though you have a mainboard issue. Set your BIOS to Defalt settings.


Does this issue repeat?


The only things I have disabled in the BIOS are:


Serial Port

Parallel Port

Floppy Disk Controller


Should changing any of those have made a difference?


Perhaps its a memory setting?
