I have assembled a new PC. I am getting Vccp out of range errors from
the Intel desktop utilities
Following is the configuration:
Processor: Intel Q9300 quad core
Motherboard: Intel DP35DP
Transcend DDR2: 1GB x 2
XFX 8600 GT 256 MB PCI express card
PSU: Corsair VX450W
WD 250 GB SATA drive
LG SATA DVD drive
Lite-on IDE DVD drive
Cabinet: Cooler Master
Fans: outlet and inlet fan
When I had bought the motherboard, its battery was drained. The
battery had to be replaced in-order to upgrade the BIOS and also to
stop the system from hanging (when there was a CD/DVD in the SATA
drive) at the BIOS screen itself .
I have installed Windows XP SP2 (ACPI uniprocessor HAL had to be
selected as default install of XP results in BSOD
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error). The system seems to be working fine, however the Intel utility keeps on reporting out of range errors. I
have upgraded to the latest BIOS and drivers from Intel; but these
alarms keep on popping up. Also, these errors are mostly present when there is any activity on the network - if the network is plugged out then most of the time these errors are not there.
Are these errors serious: can they cause any damage. I have already
changed the PSU (replaced cooler master 390W with Corsair VX450W) but that has not helped in getting rid of the alarm.
Please suggest if this is a problem with the motherboard or some other
component. Has anyone faced similar problems?
Its still close only to a week and I may be able to get a replacement
for the damaged component.
asbip, I've got the same problem. My configurations is similar yours. I just have the HD and CD drivers different. The motherboard, processor, videoboard are the same. My computer freeze frequently and the unique error that I found was the VCCP voltage higher than normal.
I had the same problem could not figer it out, then I downloaded "Intel® Desktop Utilities for 3 and 4 Series Intel® Desktop Boards [Beta]" from the intel support site for DP35DP and all my problems are so far gone, I dont get that messege anymore, I also downloaded all the latest drivers for DP35DP motherboard.
