My rig recently started to delay a good 1 to 2 minutes on boot up. A message I have noticed is <CPUID:06Fd Patch ID:00A3>. It seems to hang when it’s testing the memory. Also, my OC of 3.O GHz will not hold anymore ever since getting the delay at boot.
Here are my specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Mobo: GA-P35-DS3L rev.2.0 Bios: F8f
CPU Fan: COOLER MASTER RR-CCH-L9U1-GP
Memory: 4X1GB Wintec Ampo DDR2 800 PC6400* Please See Note Below
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250MB
DVD: PHILIPS DVD Burner
PSU: Antec TPII- 550 TRUEPOWERII
GPU: EVGA 9800 GTX 512MB
I have already reset CMOS and I still get the delay.
Like I mentioned before, I had a stable 3.0 GHz OC before the delay at boot started to occur.
Note: I initially only order 2GB of memory from Newegg and recently got the other 2GB. I do notice slightly different timings in CPUID, but the OC was stable and I had no delay at boot until recently. I bought the 2nd 2GB in 8/09 and the delay and OC not holding started a few days ago. Not sure if this is the source of the problem, but I thought I would mention it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated since I would like to get my E2180 running at 3.0 GHz instead at 2.0 GHz.
If you haven't yet done it, pull out all but one stick, start with a BIOS' "Load Optimized Defaults"...
"CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)" to "Disabled"
"C2/C2E State Support" to "Disabled" (if present...)
"C4/C4E State Support" to "Disabled" (if present...)
"CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2)" to "Enabled"
"CPU EIST Function" to "Disabled"
On the "Integrated Peripherals" page:
Your manual shows "Legacy USB storage detect", but later BIOS say "USB Storage Function" - either way, set to "Disabled"
On the "MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)" page:
"Robust Graphics Booster" to "Auto"
"C.I.A.2" to "Disabled"
"Performance Enhance" to "Standard"
"System Voltage Control to "Manual"
"DDR2 OverVoltage Control" to "+0.10V" (assuming it's 1.8V RAM...)
"(G)MCH OverVoltage Control" to "+0.10V" for more than two sticks of ram...
