morfee Posted August 20, 2008 Share Posted August 20, 2008 Hi, I built a new system and was having some problems with it, mostly due to Vista64. Once those were sorted out my system ran fine for a few months. Then Vista started giving me constant RAID error messages, even though all read-write was working fine. Then I started having some crashes, which increased in frequency. This was soon followed by boot problems and then POST problems. I removed 2 of my 4x1G RAM sticks and everything worked fine again. I did the RAM dance with the 2 removed sticks and found that 1 of them worked in all slots and 1 of them worked in no slots, with some slots worse than others. I RMA'd the RAM and the system worked fine withe the replacement RAM for about a month. Then I started having crash and boot problems again. I removed the replacement RAM and considered getting a new MB. Another month later the system had trouble booting up. When it finally did it showed a lot of RAID errors again, followed by crashes and quickly POST errors. I can't get the system to work with any combination of 2x or 1x1G sticks. Although I had planned on overclocking, I never got around to it due to the history of problems. I also had to turn off all sleep and hibernation modes as the system would crash after waking up and require a hard boot. People have suggested to me that the problem is my PSU. Right now I think I need to by a new PSU and all new RAM to get my system working again. I think I have an HX620. I don't think I can keep RMAing the RAM :) Any advice on my PSU suspicions? Thanks.
