  1. i should have mine up soon too. i'm at school all day monday-friday so it's difficult to do anything on my desktop now unless it's at night D: but i'll squeeze it in.
  2. i ran it, no errors or anything. i'll keep running prime95 and intelburntest to see if they come up with anything else.
  3. with the old test, IE will "freeze" but the test continues after that, with the new test it just goes to "no session in progress" after the disk check. i'm running it right now, definitely forgot about that. haha. it's right in the boot menu though (just press tab when the list of OSes shows up, and it switches to the memory tool toward the bottom). thanks.
  4. i suppose i'll pick this thread up instead of starting a new one. I have this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227320 everything ran fine for a month or so, but now i'm having stability issues (the screen will just go black, and i'm not even doing anything cpu intensive at that time). pcpitstop: http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=CVR68WLHW3BSD9LK (the new test won't run because it takes its time on the disk check, then says "no session in progress") i don't remember the exact original settings i had, but they were hopefully similar to this: http://beatthegame.net/mario/PC/P1080031.JPG http://beatthegame.net/mario/PC/P1080032.JPG is something set wrong? or is the motherboard/processor just not meant to handle that ram at that speed/those timings? i basically tried following whatever was there for "SPD" and what newegg had listed. i've been using intelburntest and prime95 to test the memory (and cpu i suppose, although i don't believe that's the issue) at different speeds, everything was fine when i had everything set to "auto" in the bios (besides the cpu multiplier, which was 15.5x, that's stock) i've gotten two blue screens, this is one, if it helps any: http://beatthegame.net/mario/PC/P1080029.JPG
  5. ah. well be sure it can handle those faster processors (the ones with 533 MHz fsb), the pentium 4 boards with regular SDRAM may not support anything over 400 MHz fsb. in that case i think 2.6 ghz would be the fastest, as nigsy said.
  6. i was going to post this yesterday but got lazy taking a guess here and saying it's similar to the D510: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quicksp.../11349_div.HTML (super long page warning) it says up to P4 2.8 ghz, 533 mhz fsb. so basically any pentium 4 without hyper-threading will work in there. but that page lists all the processors compatible with that motherboard.
  7. miggs78: dual cores seem to get a lower score, since cinebench and geekbench always get higher scores with quad cores. if you have XP installed, try running 3dmark01 on that. you can at least get a better score on that.
  8. aha, you are awesome. i've wanted this ever since i started using windows 7. thank you!
  9. have we determined what class each person/computer is in? mariol90 - pcpitstop AMD Phenom II X4 gigabyte MA790XT radeon 4850 DDR3-1600 air (i'm using a socket 939 cooler which is probably unsafe but it fits) geekbench - 5965 http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/151831 3dmark 01 - 44427 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=9515782 3dmark 06 - 13913 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=11617335 super pi 1M - 22.187 http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y259/mari...erpi1Mstock.png cinebench - 10105 http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y259/mari...ebenchstock.png total - 311,979 i don't think we're supposed to take the 100k off. it says 0 for the OC bonus so i think we're good on that.
  10. i don't think it's too late still, been a while since i participated in one of these anyway. lol. phenom ii x2 550 (so i can do dual or quad core, depending on what people would think would be better) on air gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P radeon 4850 512MB 4GB DDR3-1600
  11. I knew other people have had the same problems. It'd be nice if there was an easy fix D: I removed everything besides the processor and 3 fans (all motherboard fans), removed cmos battery and set jumper to clear cmos. i'll let that sit for a while, hopefully it works. thanks. nope, it's well over a year old, which is probably how long the warranty was. i got it from one of my friends when he upgraded some of his stuff (he gave me the board, processor, heatsink/fan, ram, and 2 video cards).
  12. well, i tried a working power supply and that didn't solve the issue. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817371013 that's what i tried. i have the same issue with that one, even though i know it's working.
  13. the one that i was using is an antec TP3 550W, i'll try that with completely different parts, and i also have an antec basiq (something like that?), it's like 300W or 330W or something, that's brand new and i know it works. i tried it with my stuff and the same thing happened (no video on screen).
  14. use something else to test the drives like HD Tune. compare the averages, the 750GB might be just as fast because of how newer drives are made (besides the cache, they usually have perpendicular recording, which makes them a bit faster). and, not all drives are the same, even if they have the same specs. compare 7200rpm drives throughout the years, you'll notice that even ones with the same cache have gotten a lot faster.
  15. I've looked this up on google, and a lot of other people have the same issue with different abit boards. Their solution is to RMA it, but this board is probably 2-3 years old (got it from a friend), and no longer under warranty. The board worked fine for a while, then I restarted my computer and the screen went black. Powered off and on, nothing, reset, nothing. reset cmos, tried pretty much everything by now (reset cmos countless times, another pci-e video card, a pci video card, different ram), still getting the same 9.0 code, which is "Complete uGuru initial process, AWARD BIOS take over booting job" according to the manual. A few days ago, I tried it again, it finally worked, then I shut it off to plug it into my UPS (we have frequent power outages here), and it never came back up. I'm pretty sure everything works, it just doesn't work together, and doesn't always work. This is the stuff i have/tried: abit an8 board athlon 64 3200+ (worked in another board when i tried it, then that board ended up dying or something) 1GB patriot memory (2x512), 1GB ultra memory (2x512), and a 256MB PC2700 stick just to test, which seems to be the default speed when the computer actually works. ATi firegl v5100 (worked last time the computer was working), evga 7600GT (worked in another computer) I disconnected all other cards (sound, wireless) and my hard drives. sometimes the fans on the board spin at full speed constantly, other times they'll slow down (i have them set to do that). I'm sure at least one or two of you here have run into the same problem as i'm having, so if you could give a solution that'd be really great last time it was working: http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=SFULTWUWENGSDQV9 Thanks.
