  33. computer reboots after chkdsk

     

  34. windows loads

     

  35. shutdown windows

     

Well that's not right!

Go back to step 12 and start over

do step 21, but add the following

Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change nothing else in the memory settings

continue to step 22

same problem happens at step 32

Well it fails again that is odd...

Go back to step 12 and start over

do step 21, but add the following

Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change from 1333 to 1066. change nothing else in the memory settings

continue to step 22

at step 32 I can cancel the schedule chkdsk

That's more like it, but I am still not happy.

Well maybe its the ram NOT LIKELY!

Back to step 1

At step 2 substitute the other Kingston ram

problem at step 32 happens!

Well crap other people say this ram works better than the patriot for automatic timings. Dang it!

Go back to step 12 and start over

do step 21, but add the following

Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change nothing else in the memory settings

continue to step 22

same problem happens at step 32

 

Well it fails again this is not looking good

Go back to step 12 and start over

do step 21, but add the following

Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change from 1333 to 1066. change nothing else in the memory settings

continue to step 22

at step 32 I can cancel the schedule chkdsk

Oh man both sets of ram have the same behavior. This is not good at all. There is defiantly some strange issue with 1333 DDR3 ram it seems to me.

I put the patriot ram back in and put ram timings to manual - 1066.

I was using bios rev 0121 during these procedures.

Can anybody else reproduce this?

Re: DP45SG DDR3 1333 scheduled chkdsk on next boot issue

Guess I blacklisted myself since...

Well for now I am trying another motherboard to prove to myself that a different maker with similar chipset can do the things I can not do with this motherboard. Then at least I can say that all of my other hardware is fine and it is a motherboard problem. We will see how it goes this weekend.

Re: DP45SG DDR3 1333 scheduled chkdsk on next boot issue

Hi, I have this board with 4 dimms, Kingston KVR1333D3N9. I can work without problems with only 2 dimms on the blue slots. If I use the 4 dimms (8 Gbs) the board starts to freeze or reboots suddently.

Can you tell me the settings to run the ram at 1066Mhz? I have read on other posts that the board has no problems with 8Gbs at 1066Mhz.
