    Crashing and Freezing

    Hi, I've been having issues with my build for the last few months and still haven't managed to find a solution; so I've turned to the great minds of Hexus to see if any of you can put me out of my misery .

    So recently the PC has been freezing completely and randomly leaving me forced to manually reboot.
    Often it take several tries to boot up - with me having to use the MemOK! function which sometimes works - I have tried to enter the RAM's correct setting, but it boots up later saying 'overclocking failed'
    The PC often slows when scrolling, almost lagging - very noticeable while listening to music which it causes to play in crackly, slow-motion.

    Looking in Event Viewer it shows that I get a lot of critical Kernel Power errors (ID: 41)

    PC Specs:
    AMD 1090T @ Stock
    Asus M4A89GTD Pro
    2x2GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer - 1600mhz, 1.65V
    Huntkey X7 900W PSU
    XFX 6870 1GB Black Edition
    Crucial C300 SSD

    Any help greatly appreciated I'll keep searching and post if I find the solution myself

    Thanks

    Your memory is not in the QVL list for the motherboard. When you was in the BIOS looking at memory settings what was the memory voltage set to? and when you changed the memory timings did you adjust the voltage?

    Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

    Yes, i did up the voltage to the 1.65V
    I do have another set of memory - Kingston Hyper X - however this is clocked at 1800mhz and therefore unsupported by the board (could i maybe try under-clocking this)

    And do you think it is the RAM causing me the problems?

    Cheers

    Kingston KHX1800C9D3T1K3/6GX(XMP) is listed as being compatible so you may be able to try it for testing.

    Have you tried running memtest ?

    Thanks for getting back to me again.

    Ran the windows memory diagnostic - all clear on the Crucial ram - interestingly the pc hasn't frozen at all today, but still lags the music when scrolling.

    The Kingston Ram runs fine; however the same problem still occurs.

    Re: Crashing and Freezing

    I still think its something with the RAM being incompatible, you say that it works when you use MemOK! which forces RAM into failsafe settings, I assume its something to do with that, although you say both the Kingston and Crucial ram work fine, but they still cause you problems. Why not get a set of 1.5v RAM at either 1333, or 1600mhz, as thats usually the speed that most ram run at, your kingston set runs at 1800mhz while the crucial one does run at 1600mhz, although they both run at 1.65v, that is what I think is causing all this. Try to acquire some 1.5v ram and see if that solves your problems.

    EDIT: I just saw you had an AMD system, ignore what I posted about voltages. Although I did find out that the 1090t only officially supports 1333mhz ram, and you need to do a bit of tweaking to the CPU to make it support higher frequencies, although from reading around, this varies from motherboard to motherboard. So you might want to take a look into that area.

    try searching the crucial site for the exact information on your memory. It may need a higher voltage to run at the timings you tried, It may also need a higher voltage to run at the SPD speeds too.

    My OCZ memory is supposed to be 1.8volt but, It won't run stably unless the voltage is the bios is tweaked up to 2.1volts.

    Re: Crashing and Freezing

    Slow scrolling is usually due to something being amiss in the display system. Make sure your VGA drivers are up to date and installed correctly, also the same for your chipset drivers.

    Re: Crashing and Freezing

    Power supply? What wattage and ampage is it? It could be possible that a faulty PSU is giving insufficient voltage to your system and causing the lockups. Always worth a look.
