  1. Hey, sorry. Well I had it boot once and it was running fine so I decided to just not try and shut it down at all. I've been going in and out of standby and it has been running fine. The way I was able to boot it up normally was by unplugging my card reader. Kind of odd and I'm not entirely sure that was the cause but I think it's a safe assumption. I've booted up twice now without the card reader hooked up with no problems. I'm still afraid that might not be the issue so I'm trying to reboot as little as possible.
  2. When I load fail safe defaults the system freezes even sooner than it normally does during boot up. Mobo= EVGA 132-YW-E178-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI FTW ATX Intel http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813188027 RAM= One set is- OCZ Platinum Revision 2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227139 And I'm almost sure this is the other set, but not positive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227298
  3. I don't know how to explain it any differently to be honest. My drive passes the tests just fine, but when I click "properties" it shows my drive health as "warning". I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy, I didn't create the program, I'm just stating what it says. Updates (cross posted from another forum)- System Restore honestly just made my system run so much slower, I have no idea why. Going to try resetting BIOS settings now. ______ So I reset the BIOS and all of the problems are back. The first time it started it told me that the case was opened and to chec
  4. The drive passed the lifeguard diagnostics, simple and extended, but when I right-click properties it shows my drive's health as "Warning". Since my system was running fine earlier I decided to open up Media Monkey and MSN Messenger. I was video chatting with a friend and listening to music when the song changed and it started skipping. That is exactly how it all started in the first place. It's now back to Windows only loading 1 out of 5 times. No idea what the issues in BIOS were about, but I agree, I think it's definitely my hard drive that is the culprit..... again. Backin
  5. Ran Mem Test, no issues with my cache or RAM. After a million and a half restarts my computer is running fine once again, through no doing of my own, albeit a little slow during Windows loads. Suspecting a hard drive issue now as WD Lifeguard diagnostic said the health of my drive was in "warning". I also decided not to reset my BIOS settings since it hasn't froze or booted into safe mode the last 10 or so restarts. Running extended diagnostics on the hard drive currently. Any ideas on how my computer is seemingly fixing itself? Any ideas on why a hard drive issue might caus
  6. I have a 1000W RS-A00-EMBA PSU that came with my CM Stacker 830 case. I have not checked the voltage on the PSU. How would I do that and what should it be set at? I downloaded the WD Lifeguard diagnostic tool. I ran the quick test and everything came out fine, and I'm running the extended test as we speak. I will try to reset the CMOS settings once the extended test is finished.
  7. My BIOS seems to be self-correcting in a way. It is now ignoring any errors and is just going through the boot process. Ever since I built this computer I would always get a "Floppy Disk Error" because I don't have a floppy drive installed and I would always have to press F1 to continue loading. It never bothered me much, but now that error has disappeared all by itself and it's no longer freezing at "Memory Testing". My mobo is displaying a code of "FF" which I believe is normal but I'm not sure. SFC /Scan now "did not find any integrity violations". It is still freezing at the lo
  8. I posted this information in another forum. I feel like I've already typed out the most important description of my problem, so I'll just copy and paste- Problem description: The other day I had a bunch of applications running like normal when all of a sudden they started to freeze one by one until the entire system froze and I had to restart. When I did restart BIOS would not load. I reset the computer once again and BIOS loaded itself into safe mode. It gave me a warning telling me that the system was running in safe mode and to reset my CPU or memory voltages or something along
  9. I don't know. The Zalman looks better and has better reviews.
  10. Hmm, thanks for all the responses so far. I'm getting this board- http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16813188024 and this CPU fan- http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16835118020 As far as price goes I don't really mind so long as it's not a HUGE difference and it is a better investment.
  11. I like to go for the better products too but that's just unrealistic.
  12. Ok so I DO want the Q6600 then. Why not the Q6700? Just curious.
  13. So it won't be a problem that it doesn't have the G0 stepping or whatever? I plan on OCing to a little bit above 3.0.
  14. Which of these should I buy? And should I go with the OEM versions or not? Some users will say there is a difference, besides the G0 stepping. I'm confused. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115027 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115039 http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx...N82E16819115018
  15. Typing hcp://system/sysinfo/msinfo.htm into the address bar worked perfect. Thanks guys.
