Hi everyone I recently decided to build my first rig… so far not entirely successful. Here is the thing when I turn it on I passes the bios thing and then it goes to the win7 screen and it freezes for a sec then a blue screen shows up for millisecond and resets. And that’s happening again and again never completes the boot. I can go to Startup Repair to and it passes all the tests the end message on the log is "unspecified changes to the configuration might have caused the problem” and then it says below it successfully passed but again after the restart it freezes blue screen and restart. It is win7 Ultimate. Here is the funny part I have old PC with win XP home edition I switch the HDD only the HDD nothing else and it boots fine. All the components are recognized. I am sure the HDD with win7 is fine because I tested it on the old pc and it boots just fine. Btw I am testing it securely outside the box and the Open Case restart option is disabled. Please help me out here I just have ran out of ideas what the problem might be. Thanks in advance.
Here is the components info:
i7 870 2.93 standard clock and the manufacture thermal compound
Gigabyte P55-usb3 Motherboard REV 2.0
2x4gb G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Latency 9 Voltage: 1.5V 9-9-9-24-2N
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5550 1GB 128-bit
Antec 750W PSU 80+
Here some more BIOS info that might help:
Bios ver. F8
V core 1.168
DRAM voltage 1.568
CPU around 46 C
PCH around 40 C
it resets way too quickly for me to see it. in the event viewer shows Kernel-Power Event ID 41 but i am not quite sure if that is the problem that just could be from my manual shut downs. any ideas how to make it not reset so quickly so i can see the error when it occurs?
- Remove power PSU from AC, check Rail PSU with volt meter 12v / 5v/3/ etc
- Check all cable socket HDD, Power anything in the position right.
- Check your HSF maybe shaky & rolling Fan
- if u have 2 stick RAM use 1 only just check if error use other Ram
In the next time u need software memtest86+ can download in : http://www.memtest.org/
check your RAM 1 by 1 , it's all Clear, use both.
btw the win7 was already installed on the hdd before putting the parts together could that be the problem and i need to reinstall win7?
Thinking about this - I've had similar problems with Win7 HDD installs if done with a different motherboard. I reckon you should try a clean install from the DVD - selecting to quick format the HDD and then see how it goes. Good luck
