Phenom II X4 965 BE (denab)
Windows Vista 32bit (atm)
2Gb OCZ CL4-4-4-12 CT1 800mhz
I didnt have this problem as such BUT my PC locked up constantly BSOD mainly with the following errors
After several days of hair pulling, I did manage to isolate the problem.
It was the new ram - Corsair Dominator 5-5-5-15 2.1v 1066mhz. 2x2Gb sticks
No matter what I did the system would not run stable at 1066mhz on the ram.
I changed back to my older OCZ ram and voila, system stable, no BSOD.
My suggestions to cure the probs.
1. As others have stated, update to newest stable BIOS (no beta's as this did affect mine!)
2. Disable Cool n Quiet. Personally, I have always been an AMD guy (cheap n cheerful.
) and never had this enabled.
3. Definately check your RAM timings and speed. (relax the timings if needed)
4. Check motherboard compatibility with the ram & processor.
I had to change my motherboard from an ASUS M3a32SLI-deluxe when I changed my processor from the Athlon X2 6000+ because of a fault that didn't appear until I slotted an X4 into it.
Dunno if this helps anyone. I am probably just rambling. lol
