Hello,

I recently reformat my ssd, did a fresh install of windows 7. After the format I notice that there are random freezes, tried many ways but doesn't work so today I decide to set the BIOS to fail-safe default to see whether it works, sadly I forget to write down the settings before I did that, silly me :( 

The PC now get 7b BSOD every time the window tries to load. I change the settings to load optimize default, no help either. The PC comes prebuild, so I have no idea what the settings are. I'm seeking out help here so I can restore the PC. Before I format the PC I overclock the CPU to 4Ghz(run well for a year), after I format it I notice my Gigagyte mother board comes with a tool to overclock so I use that to increase it to 4.1Ghz.

Here's the hardware setup copied from recepit :lol:  :

-Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 2500K Quad Core 3.3GHz 6MB cache LGA1155
-128 GB Crucial M4 Series SATA III Gaming MLC Solid State Disk(I have 2 SSD, one for boot, another for storage, same model)
-8GB (2x4GB) PC10666 DDR3/1333mhz Dual Channel Memory
-GigaByte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3


Here's the current BIOS setup:

Check the setting in the "sata" section, sometimes on the first date screen or elsewhere in the bios. If you had to set it manually to "achi" it may have changed back to "native ide" when you reset the bios settings. Changing it back to achi may get rid of your BSOD's.

Thanks! I set everything back to ACHI and it works! I totally forget that I change the mode to ACHI a year ago

Since I'm here already, may I ask anyone to look into my BIOS and help me optimize it please? I'm really curious about the settings in BIOS. So let's say I want to overclock it the CPU to 4G, it's 3.3 now, I just change the multiplier?

Howe about the RAM? are the RAM in correct settings?
