well, my problem is that, at some point when i'm playing some games like Tera online, Dragon Nest, Dead Space 3 ,etc.
my PC hangs and all i can do is restart the whole thing, i've been looking for a solution online, and still no luck, i did some testings like running memtest, to see if its a RAM problem, well, this is what i got http://imgur.com/sQCCEdS and after that, it hanged.
so i can't really say that i've completed that one. Another thing is that i used the Prime95 and, it hanged also, cant move a thing XD.
so please i need your help on my problem T_T
is it a hardware problem? my specs problem?, what do you think?
Thankyou for your response sir smorizio, i've updated my BIOS to version 3, then i tried again running memtest, but still after 2mins, it hanged again, i dunno what i'm missing here, >.< is my RAM faulty? my PSU? Motherboard RAM slots?
if you have onboard video on the mb try pulling the gpu and see if the rig is stable..could be a power issue. i would also try and turn off the cpu cache to see if it the cpu or ram. check the ram speed is set right in the bios..with cpu-z. also check your mb ra mqal list to see if the ram you have is on there list.
ok, i have reformatted my PC, installed the updated Drivers, and it still has random crashes upon bootup, and it also hangs & restarts even when configuring Windows Updates it stucks on 30%, then i am forced to restart the PC. what do you think is the reason for this happening? i strongly need your help guys...
here is the screenshot of my CPU-Z i have a freshly reformatted PC, but even now i still encounter random Freezes and sometimes freezes upon bootup so, i always go to Launchup recovery whenever i'm restarting the PC, i need your help guys, i dont know much on how to troubleshoot hardware problems..
with the newer intel cpu the ram controller is part of the cpu. if the system locks up in ram test..there only a few issues to cause it. 1. the ram not seated all the way or there a bent pin. the ram and mb hate each other/was not qal for the mb...to rule out this kind of issue you have to try another brand and or make sure the mb bios is up to date. 3. the cpu ram controller is bad or there a bent pin..issue show up like only 1/2 the slots are working or the any ram failes the same tests in any of the ram slots. most mb vendor on debug will want you to take ram sticks put one stick in and walk it to every slot and see if the memory range stays the same with both sticks and all ram. when you swap ram stick out and it bad the good ram going to pass. if two sticks are bad..then the error spots are going to change in memtest.
