OK, here's the problem. I put together a new system which includes: ASRock 880g-LE (intergrated video) motherboard AMD PII x2 545 G.Skill DDR3 PC-1600 2x2GB OCZ modxstream 600watt Win7 Ultimate Now my system boots up correctly randomly. What I mean is when I hit the power button (cold boot) it's a hit or miss to boot into windows. But once I'm in it's ok. Run fine with no problems, 4hrs of prime. I also tested the memory with memtest86+ no error after 4hrs. when i reboot and hit "x" to unlock the other two cores it boots into windows fine. I stress with prime 1nce again for 4hrs and no errors. I can reboot as many times as I want and it will load into windows fine. But 1nce I shut down and come back in an hour it won't boot into windows at all and I have to go into the bios to set it to default just to get to windows again. My question is: Is it my motherboard? I think it is but not qite sure. What do you guys think. O yea this is my 2nd cpu the 1st didn't unlock and wasn't stable as a X2 "DOA". The PSU is the same PSU I've been using for the past 2 years.
Maybe it is your X2 letting you know why it was sold as an X2. If you leave it as an X2 does this happen.
Only when I reboot its OK, as a "X2". A cold boot its hit or miss, as a "X2". The CPU when tested with prime for 4hrs gives no errors as an X2 and X4. It's just cold boots problems.
