Computer won't start unless I press MemOk
It started when I was playing a game, my computer shut off randomly. I restarted and continued my business. This became a more and more frequent thing, my computer would shut off when I was doing anything. This happened until a red light came on and now I can't start my computer at all unless I press the memok button. It loads up into the bios and I can get through windows through there, although since this happened its just been collecting dust in the corner. At this point I don't really know what to do. I'm assuming it's the memory. Can anyone help me out?
Of course. I'm not really sure how to find my exact numbers, but this is what I've found:

Thank you better than nothing. I still think it is the memory. Please run this test and see if there are errors (if any).

FSB : DRAM (base?)-3:10
That's what I got from cpuz. Do you need any more info? Also I let memtest run over night and I got no errors.
Well this is odd. I could have sworn I posted a response on here Friday. I was wondering why I wasn't getting any answers.
Anyway, here is what happened, I did what you told me and when I turned on my computer the memok button was red for a second, then it turned right on. So that's a good sign right? But what did happen was before I pressed f1 to get to the bios I got a message saying overclocking failure. Also where I changed it to 9-9-9-27 it changed itself to 9-9-9-24. I haven't messed with it since because I know I could damage my computer by overclocking. So what do you guys think? I hope you haven't lost interest yet! Thanks for the patience.
Alright, I don't want to mess with things I shouldn't be, so where exactly would I change it? Under DRAM driving control looks to be the right place.
but I am seeing these two things.
one here :
but I think this is probably more on target(especially because of the colors):
That didn't seem to do much. After the restart the DRAM voltage changed back to auto. It also went back to auto where I changed it to 9-9-9-27.
Also I think I should mention that I have been getting this since the beginning.
that cant be helping.
Oh, also something that caught my eye is my DRAM read to write delay is at 220 and its red. I honestly don't know what that means, but the red has got to mean its wrong right?
