Hyper Transfer Sync Error -Drivers
Ok so I posted a previous thread in the XP forums when I thought it was XP or my GFX card. I have Win7 ultimate x86 installed right now and eveyrthing works fine.... Until I go to install drivers for audio or graphics card. Right now my graphics card shows in Device Manager but it is listed as 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'. I even install the ATI video driver off the Biostar utility cd and I get the same error. 'Hyper Transfer Flood Sync Error'. I've tried all versions of the catalyst software and all of them give me the same error. People all suggest this is a faulty RAM problem but it can't be. My system is stable without drivers installed...
That error can be caused by a variety of problems: MOBO, RAM, PSU, OC, BIOS, etc. First observation - don't use the CD; go to Biostar and download the NEWER drivers from their website.
Need to know your full specs (CPU, MOBO, GPU, PSU. RAM, and BIOS version); CPU-z can help identify -> http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
Otherwise my feeling are your MOBO, PSU or GPU. When the GPU drivers are running properly it draws additional power so the additional load is causing an error; similarly a bad GPU can also trigger a similar problem. Voltage drops and 'poof' you get the errors. **So try a different PSU from another PC **
You might want to look at the Event Manager and see what Critical errors are listed and what's the root cause(s); see http://i1013.photobucket.com/albums/af254/Jaquith/Event_Manager.jpg
Sorry I can't believe I forgot my system specs...
biostar A880G micro ATX
radeon hd 4770
Phenom II X6 1090T @ 3.2
4GB g.Skill DDR3 @ 1600
I got everything working fine by moving the 4 gig stick into the second slot again and drivers were installed, graphics card was working. Then I tried getting my second 4 gig stick in there and everything went to *** again. Back in the same loop. Even with 1 stick in the second card again it still fails.
When I first got it working I changed the hyper transport settings in BIOS to 1ghz and 16 bit. Its what got me up and running but now it doesn't even matter it is still toast.
I'm starting to think that it is a PSU issue as I've had it for a while and instead of 5v and 12v at startup I have 4.875 and 11.9. Is this normal?
I also got this upon returning to windows without video drivers...
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Files that help describe the problem:
I ran CPU-Z and of course all it could find was my processor information. No info on board or RAM....
Common BSOD Errors:
BSOD Error codes and what they mean:
0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage
Manually set ALL RAM Values in the BIOS, first try DRAM Frequency -> DDR3 1333MHz.
If you post your exact set of RAM I can post the correct settings and check compatibility. "4GB g.Skill DDR3 @ 1600" narrows it down to A LOT of possibilities.
1. RAM - provide link to Set.
2. What BIOS version? See CPU-z Mainboard
As I said before CPU-z is bringing up nothing for the mainboard or memory.
Those BSOD codes mean a lot though because I just noticed that my A880G+ board only supports up tho DDR3 1333MHz. Setting my bios down to 1333 will probably work! I'm not sure if i can find the settings to change that though. Will report back soon.
Thanks a lot for your help
You can determine the BIOS version in the BIOS itself no need for CPU-z.
There are several versions of your 'A880G' -> http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/search/search.php?search=A880G
Besides setting just the Frequency, set the CAS Timings including the Command Rate. Here's a generic Sticky for setting the RAM -> http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=7688
Here's the CPU-z info on your RAM:
You need to post your exact MOBO, "As I said before" there are several versions of your 'A880G'.
So me picking one and posting settings might not pertain. In general you need to set the BIOS to allow Manual Overclocking then the FSB settings will show-up. It seems the only setting you did was to set the DRAM Frequency -> DDR3-1333MHz and not the CAS Timings...
Ok... Well I upped the FSB from 200 to 220. Things are running now with drivers installed!
System crashed once but I have been stable for 30 minutes ( no processes really running)
I thought the screenshot from CPU-Z told you the MOBO info but I guess not.
I still need help making my system more stable and getting my FSB: DRAM ratio in check.
I have CPU freq at 220Mhz, RAM timings are at 9-9-9-24, RAM voltage 1.5v, NB voltage is at 1.2
thanks for all your help im getting closer!
System crashed once already but no errors and can boot back up. Just looking for more stable settings. Will be back in a minute with BIOS version.
