Question about Gigabyte GA880GMUD2H AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Hello. I have this motherboard and a kit of 2x2Gb Corsair Rams CMX4GX3M2A16000C9. My problem is that sometimes when I want to watch a video on Youtube or play a game, my pc restarts without warning and if I try to watch it again I get another restart etc. What have I tried so far: -Check reliability log but it does show any reasons for the restart. -Clean install of GPU drivers -Clean uninstall of GPU drivers and letting it take them from Windows update -Used Speedfan to check my pc temperatures and they are not high at all. (below 26 GPU, below 38 cpu on idle) -Run CCleaner for any registry fault and didn't find anything along with Tune up registry cleaner. -Cleaned the GPU and RAM and the slots a little from the dust. -Changed HDMI cable. -Checked disk for errors -Clean install Windows 7 again -Run FurMark for 15 minutes with no errors -Run memtest and found some faults on the second ram. -Changed the rams back to my provider and got an exact new same kit -Checked Bios and chipset, they are updated to the latest version for my CPU -Opened up my computer and reconstructed it from the beginning Furthermore my computer specs: CPU: AMD Phenom 2 x4 965BE MoBo: The one mentioned RAM: The one mentioned GPU: MSI R7770 Ghz edition Power Supply: 550W 80+ What I'm doing now: -Put the new Ram kit on the third and fourth slot rather than the first and second and running Memtest again with one Ram at a time. Furthermore, I checked and found that my MoBo supports RAM with 1,5V and the Ram kit I use is 1.65V and doesnt support 1600hz Ram. On the BIOS I found that my RAM kit was working with 1600 ungaged and 11-11-11-29 rather than 9-9-9-24. I made it run at 1333 and it automaticaly turns to 9-9-9-24. I'm making the test now with those settings. This set up was working great without problem for the past 1 and a half year and when I changed from AMD Athlon x3 450 and Sapphire 5770 to the specs I mentioned above, the problem started. Thanks in advance.
Did you reset your BIOS ? Try reset your bios. remove the BIOS battery(RTC battery) and press the power button after disconnecting from wall socket. Short the jumper somewhere near to the BIOS chip. A user manual is helpful. If you can't find the jumper, simply short the two terminals inside theBIOS battery holder. That is two golden or steel coloured thin sheet like. Put back the battery after an hour and start the system. Tap the DEL button to enter into BIOS settings and change date and time first then boot device order(boot device priority) save and exit. See what is happening. If it solves the issue you have studied another troubleshooting tip. Hope this helps!!!

You could try another power supply. Otherwise, I'd say it's DOA

Welcome to FixYa.
Considering the troubleshooting you have done, it is more like a problem with the new CPU and since compatibility has been checked already, the only next thing to do is to go to the store where you bought the new CPU and have it tested there. Or you can try the new CPU to another compatible unit that you have.
The next logical conclusion in your problem right now is that the new CPU is defective not until you can test it and function with another unit.
Thanks for using FixYa.
