  • Problems With AMD 64 3200+

    Hey there, just built a new computer. Had some troubles with it and wanted to know if you could help me. This is my first time buildign a computer, and i dont know whats going wrong.

    Just got:
    AMD 64 3200+ Socket 939
    Chaintech S1689 Mobo
    Corsair Value Select PC3200 Dual Channel (2GB Memory Kit) 184-pin DDR400
    500W Intel/AMD ready, Dual Fans(80mm), Dual Heatsinks (Made by MGE)
    Ultra Fire HeatPipe/Dual 80mm Fan
    One CD-Rom 52X
    One Floppy
    Two 40 Gig Maxtor IDE Hardrives (One unpluged for time being)
    SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit
    BFG GeForece FX5500 (Soon to be GeForce 6800)
    D-link Wireless Adapter (802.11G 108Mbps)

    My problem is that when i can actualy boot into Windows XP Pro it takes forever to load any kind of program, Internet Explorer/Firefox, And after 2-3 mins of browsing my computer freezes for a few seconds, then later on it locks up completly. Sometimes Xp doesnt even get loaded before it locksup on me.

    Can be getting to hot, ive got 6 80mm fans, and one 120mm fan.
    2 80mm on case(One front/One Side), 2 80mm on Heatsink for CPU, 2 80mm in Powersupply, 1 120mm in back of case. Normal Temp in Bios(On chip) = 40*c Temp in case 30/32*c.

    So far ive tryed to unplug uneeded things, like extra hhd, sound card, ive tryed to load windows with just floppy/cdrom/video/hhd1/one stick of ram(Both at different intervals); Tryed disabling Cool 'n' Quiet, ?underclocking?... Its at 800Mhz FSB? Im not to sure about all this(Clocking and whant not). Im pretty sure its down to being RAM/CPU/Mobo.

    My dad is the main coputer dude around here, but hes away on a trip right now, and ive got a tournament for a game of mine tonight

    check to make sure the CPU fan and heatsink are connected correctly. I know if that is slightly off it can cause it to overheat. When your machine shuts down, reboot and go to BIOS and look at the temp.

    Also remove one memory stick and try it out. If that fails, switch memory sticks. One bad memory stick can cause weird things to happen like freezing and blue screens.

      Thanks will do, brb...


      Okay, i checked the Fan, it was on correctly, and ive just booted into Windows with one stick of ram.

      Okay, so maybe it was just that one stick of ram... thanks ima keep checking into this...

        So with just one stick you booted fine?

        If that's the case, try switching sticks and using the same slot. It could be a bad slot or a bad memory stick.

          Okay, i booted fine with one stick, i had to restart to enable my adapter for the internet, as soon as i did it started to do the same things again... I switched the memory sticks again, to the one that didnt load up, and well thats the one im using right now, im downloading Memtest86 and Memdoc.

                Try testing your memory with memtest86. Its very effective at finding bad memory.

                http://www.memtest86.com/

                You will need to install the program to a floppy and boot the floppy. Let it run trough all the tests a few times.

                If you get errors with both sticks in, remove one and test again, then switch and test again. It might be that the RAM is fine, but your motherboard has problems with running both sticks simutaneously. If that is the case, your may consider a replacement mobo, or you could try adjusting the memory timings to eliminate the errors. My memory will run at stock timing fine, but if I bump it up just a little it will get errors like mad.

                        Couldnt edit, but i thought id share with you guys what i found out.

                        My Pc For some reason was freezeing because of my D-Link Wireless 802.11g(108Mpbs) Network Adapter. It wasnt buged...

                        But if anyone ever goes to but D-Link, make sure something else isnt as good or better for the same price. I have had nothing but problems with that thing. If you remember my old thread about Random BSOD's(Caused by the same adapter in a different PC)

                        But all in all this new PC is pretty fast, i just wish i coulda kept my 2 gigs of RAM... Oh well, maybe next time...

                        Sorry for Triple post, just thought some of you might like to know about D-Link...

                          I thought I told you to bust that thing with a hammer.... should have taken my advice. :icon_razz
