Default A7N8X Deluxe V2 - Random reset problem

Hi -

I am seeing a weird problem with an A7N8X Deluxe Version 2 motherboard.

When playing Command & Conquer - Generals, I will see my system
spontaneously reboot. I have seen the rebooting occur at other times as well
during "low stress usage"- for example, when using AOL Instant Messenger.

I have the latest Nvidia Graphics drivers installed on my Asus GeForce4
Ti4200, and the latest nForce Drivers installed for the motherboard.

My system specs:

Mobo: Asus A7N8X Deluxe, Version 2 (BIOS 1007), nForce Driver Set 2.45
GPU: Asus GeForce4 Ti4200 GeForce Drivers 52.16
APU: Asus A7N8X Deluxe Audio Processor
CPU: Athlon 2500+/333 (Barton)
Memory: 512MB PC-2700 (Crucial)
Hard Drive: MAXTOR 6Y080L0 80.0 GB

If you're running XP your first port of call should be the Control
Panel, open up System Properties and under Startup and Recovery select
Settings. Untick the Automatically Restart tickbox under System
failure. Then OK all the way back out and next time the problem occurs
you'll get an error screen rather than a reboot.

Something wrong, man? You look a little whiter than usual. My computer,
it... You ever have that feeling where you're not sure if you're awake
or still dreaming? Mmm, all the time. It's called Mescaline. It's the
only way to fly. Hey, it just sounds to me like you need to unplug, man.
You know, get some R and R. What do you think, DuJour? Should we take
him with us? Definitely. I can't, I have work tomorrow. Come on, It'll
be fun. I promise. - Choi, Neo and DuJour, The Matrix

I had the same problem and finally found that it was the Crucial memory. I
replaced it with Corsair and have not had anymore problems.

Get memtest86 from memtest86.com. The program will install a single file
on a floppy, which is sufficient to boot the machine and run the
program. Memtest86 is clever, in that it tests the whole memory, and
moves itself out of the way, to test the memory it normally occupies.
If you can run the test overnight without any errors being detected,
then your memory is probably good enough to use.

You should also check and make sure that the memory clock and the
FSB are running at the same frequency. This could be a setting like
100% or sync in the BIOS, for memory clock.

You might also want to check the Event Log or set up the machine
to give a BSOD, rather than instantly rebooting. Check to see which
routine you are crashing in. If it is always the video driver, then
there could be a problem with AGP/video. If the routines are random,
then it could be memory.

Memtest86 showed no errors after running all night.

I'll turn off the Automatic Restart to see where the problem is occurring
at.

How can I tell what is failing from the BSOD data?

I had similar issues with my A7N8X-D v2.0 rebooting and eventually traced it
to the v1007 of the bios. I now am running very stable under v1006 of the
bios. I'm not sure why it didn't like the new bios but I'm happy to running
smoothly again.

Regards,
Tom

I think that this memory tester from MS is better, since it tells you
WHICH SIMM/DIMM has the errors:

Works great, and is self booting once you make the boot floppy with
the program.

Don't forget to also check your power supply. Video processors, such
as the one you have draw more current in full graphics mode then they
do when they're idling, you might have a marginal power supply that is
collapsing and causing the reboot. That's what happened to me with the
same video card.
