  3. if your motherboard has more than one sata controller then plug your had drive into a different controller

    by that i mean--if you have 2 different coloured sata ports for example some grey and some blue then switch it to

    the other colour

    not just switch to a different port
  4. just for a test i ran a win xp cd and it ran full and installed fine but oof course wont boot bc incomapatability
  5. nvm it just blued too
  6. xp should run ok on there

    but same as windows 7

    its likely to be a hard disk controller driver issue

    thats why try it on a different sata controller

    i cant load windows on my marvell controller--but soon as i connect the hard drive to the intel controller its fine--windows then installs the marvell driver and i can then connect stuff to the marvell ports fine

    ok i tried what you said in three diff pports still freezes should i try a diff sata cable?
    although it did get further in diff ports
  8. but no blue screen just froze
  9. wont hurt to try a different cable

    did you double check all cables especially the cpu 4 or 8 pin 12v depending on your motherbord are properly clicked in?

    and that cpu fan is spinning?

    and ram is clicked in ok?

    can you access the bios?

    if it crashes after say 15minutes sitting in the bios then its likely somethings not quite connected right

    Have you run memtest86+ .... I find that Buggered RAM is the most likely culprit, especially noting the Gskills in the build list

    im leaving bios on now to see if it crashed after a while
  13. you can check your temperatures whilst its sitting in the bios

    it will read a bit higher than it will in windows for the cpu--thats normal

    but if you see a really high cpu temperature then that might be a suggestion the heatsinks not on right

    cpu 29*C
  15. no problems there then :D

    while you are in the bios check your ram speed and voltages are correct

    havent had amd for a few years but on intel boards the bios has a habit of not setting them right

    for example my 1600mhz at 1.65v get set to 1333mhz at 1.5v

    it all checks out good and bios hasent crashed yet
  17. still looks like it may be a drive driver issue then

    when you said one memory module was defective but the others seemed ok how did you test them?

    and as its 6.20am here my brains turning to mush and cant think is that a dual channel motherboard?

    if so try with only 2 ram modules instead of 3
  18. basic i tried in sets of 2 when i got no reaction from all 4 and i found the defective stick


    it is duel channel and there are 3 in it the third is to the side til i get the forth back

    srry its so early thanks for tryin to help
  19. thats ok--its not early here its late

    been up all night and going to give in and try to get some sleep now

    would say run memtest as suggested by JackNaylorPE earlier if it passes that then still think its the driver issue

    will look at your thread later and see how you get on

    happy new year if its arrived where ever you are

  23. ok did that it started rebooted scanned drives and says
    warning - Somthing wrong with your hardware!
    just like that

    launched startup repair and it froze while finding problem
  24. Sigh i just spent almost $2000 on a very nice paperweight it seems if i cant figure this out
  25. Hi Valmordius,

    Can u reset the BIOS?
  26. Assuming a BIOS reset doesn't work, check in the BIOS and see what the SATA controller is set to, IDE/RAID/AHCI. If it's on AHCI, try IDE.

    Seems like a hard drive issue.
  27. already have twice

    its on ide i tried the other two ....nothing
  31. I would try different BIOS as well.
  32. Well, the "warning, somethings wrong with your hardware" is usually the raid setup telling you a drive is bad. Kind of weird though since you aren't even running RAID. I guess you could attach it to the other computer and run chkdsk.

  33. downloaded the new hirens ran full test on the hard drive and ram nothing was found bad

    it gave that warning while on ide setting
  35. It could be faulty USB ports. Have you tried to use different ports and switching the front usb connector on the board, you might try to install from a disk. I think you have a USB issue.

    i have both a dvd and a usb iv been trying both and i have been changing ports
  37. Ok
  38. I am not sure then. :pfff:
  39. thats my problemi cant figure this out my next idea is i rented a device to test all the ports on the MB
  40. I FINALLY FOUND THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i took my Ram to ACER and they put it in the Machine and found a chip was defective that my home tests did not

    (no i am not running an acer in any way)
    (the factory is abt 2 min from my house and my step dad manages it)
  41. (the factory is abt 2 min from my house and my step dad manages it)

    that was a bit of luck

    unusual for it not to show in memtest

    main thing is you got there in the end :D
  42. now its having another problem if i do a download in bittorrent larger that 500MB the whole system freezes and i have to restart
  43. or steam or opera or even a online game launcher just sizes over 500mb
