Problem with Computer

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.

    Furthermore it seems the Memtests while I had the memories at 1333Mhz with 9-9-9-24 didn't fail but the pc restarted anyway. I also increased the voltage by +0.5v(overall 1.65V) and made them run again at 1600 ungaged and changed the timings again to 9-9-9-24 but it restarted again anyway. I'm running Memtest with the last settings I used now.

    I formatted again and clean installed Windows 7 64 bit genuine with SP1 after putting my BIOS on optimized defaults and 1 day passed with no restarts. Ram working at 1333 with 9-9-9-24.

    Thanks for your reply. I formatted to Windows 7 64 bit as I mention and 2 days passed without a restart. So I assume it was either an OS compatibility issue or a broken installed program.(I bet it was Tune up utilities 2013 trial) I was deleting stuff from there..

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!!!

SOURCE: BIOS won't boot after replacing

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.

I just bought your AMD Athlon ll #x2 255 to replace replace my old one. I see in the instructions that I have a socket 754 and the new one is different. I/m trying to upgrade my computer. i also got y

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Roger Gross.

Yes your new AMD Athlon 2 X2 255 processor is made to fit both AM2+ or AM3 sockets.

Since your current socket is 754, you will need a new mainboard and DDR3 RAM to go with your new processor.

ASUS make very good mainboards. The ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 mainboard is a good companion for your new processor. Install DDR3 1333MHz CL9 RAM from either Kingston or Corsair. 2X2GB modules should do nicely.

Feel free to contact me should you require additional assistance.

Take care!

I have an AsusP5P 800 mother board and the unit won't power on.

I had a very similar issue like this, how many RAM modules do you have installed? if you have 2 DIMM installed try removing the memory on at at time(try interchanging the RAMS), see if turns on. if not might be the motherboard itself thats possibly defective.

Your motherboard can take DDR or DDR2 RAM modules.

Crucial says: "Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200,DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot." No sense getting 4GB since the max is 2GB.

You can get higher speed RAM (PC2-6400) because it is backward compatible.

I would go with the 2 X 1GB Corsair from the ones listed.

Or consider the options on Crucial's site. See this page:

Two 1GB modules of DDR2 PC2-5300 run about $34 US.

(PS. Your 450W power supply will handle about anything.)

Error loading operating system

You have to re-install your Operating System. You have significantly changed the controllers of the mainboard (from ASUS to GIGABYTE) and therefore all of the device drivers and controllers etc that are loaded into your OS are for the ASUS board.

You can get away with no OS reinstall only if you change the same brand of mainbaord, even then its not always 100% compatible.
