i bought a phenom x4 920 and a different heatsink in june. i overclocked it to 3.4ghz (fsb in my bios) and never kept it any higher cause i couldnt up the voltage and keep low enough temps. about a week ago my computer began randomly restarting itself anywhere between 5min to 5 hours of being on. i turned of the overclock and it still happens. i put in my old processor and ran prime95 for 15 min with no problems and then diid the same with the 920 and still had no problems but an hour and a half later it rebooted its self. the temps on my processor have never been above 62 which is the "recomended" highest temp on the amd site. how can i make this stop?
when i first got the processor and was overclocking it i was running prime 95 for like 30 min and then decided that it was probably stable enough(bit of a noob decision i know) but there has to be some other reason as to why i havent had this problem for like 3 month and now its suddenly rebooting at random times?
my computer finnaly decided to give me a bsod insted of just rebooting and after looking at some fourms i got the only idea that could aply to me and i just move the ramm to different slots.i also just ran intelburntest for about 15 min (maximum stress level and ran 5 times, threads set to auto) with no probs. ill tell ya if i see any more random reboots.
Bug Check 0x3B: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
The SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION bug check has a value of 0x0000003B. This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This error has been linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics drivers crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code.
It appears that you may have to use a restore point to before you performed those installs.
- Go default, test your RAM with ran memtest86+ wait finish and [see result] error /no error ?
- if Ram clear Loosen / Relax timming RAM and Increase Voltage RAM try at 1.6
i did that and well... heres a time line of my computers restarts
2:03 - 2:37
2:37 - 2:46
2:49 - 7:58
7:58 - 8:02
8:02 - now(its been 10 minutes so far)
its rebooted during tf2, sc2, watching a youtube video, have a notpad document up, and even while doing absolutly nothing. im considering ripping this computer in half if it happens one more time especially while doing homework that i have no chance to save half the time because theres absoutly no warning of these restarts
It's too strange and hard to believe if the case is causing it, two things matter in the case is the AIRFLOW and short circuit, could be the PSU to OVERHEAT and drop votage it will poor power and make bsod error or motherboard overheat, that appears when you remove and reasembly in out case, make it all clear. then surely you need a good case and here we can only hope all doing well. Good luck brother.
