My eee box has suddenly decided to crash about a minute after startup - whatever it's doing.

It sometimes crashes & hangs with no video output, and sometimes restarts. Once or twice it's given me the blue screen of death if it manages to load windows with an irq_not_less_or_equal 0x00000000a stop error.

I have two windows XP operating systems installed on two partitions and both crash a few seconds after login so i'm pretty sure it's not a driver or registry issue. It will even crash before windows has loaded - i.e. it will crash in BIOS - displaying a few horizontal graphics artifacts a few seconds before crashing, or in boot selection screens. Booting to safe mode or VGA mode, or underclocking the GPU from BIOS all crash in the same way.

Twice after crashing it complained of a bad bios checksum, so i updated the bios from 0501 to 0902 successfully and still no luck.

From what little i can gather online this is likely to be a hardware fault, but could be an IRQ allocation problem. If it is the latter is there any way to solve the problem without ripping the thing apart?

Many thanks,

I figured it out.  I had the Duel Core Optimizer still loaded from having my 4800+ installed and it didn't like the Quad Core :)  Uninstalling it solved the BSOD issue and system running stable.

By the way, running two speeds of ram has been no issue because they're both running at 800 MHz at 4-4-4-12.  :)

Thanks!

Please give more details like your Processor, OS and devices. 

You may need to increase your processor FSB in BIOS or lower frequency for the memory.  More details about your system will help in checking on what we can do to help.

MB: P5N-E SLI

BIOS: 1301

RAM: 2x1mb GSkill 800 DDR2

CPU : E6600 Core 2 Duo

OS: WinXP SP2 32bit

Keyboard : Logitech G15 USB Keyboard (original version)

Mouse : Logitech G5 USB Laser Mouse

The problem I have and even after the latest 1301 BIOS flash is that if I warm boot a PC, that is not doing a SHUTDOWN but a RESTART the keyboard never is detected by the BIOS.  I must either unplug or do a cold boot for it to recognize.  This keyboard used to work upon a warm boot and some have sugguested allowing it to continue past the BIOS post error regarding the keyboard however it's never initialized.  The easiest way is to always just SHUTDOWN (power off) and power back on to reboot.  It's very frustrating because upon having updates to software both Microsoft and 3rd party I cannot simply do a Restart after installing or updating but must cancel and do a hard shutdown then power back for the keyboard to be recognized once again.

I cant speak for others but in my case I assure you its true. My brother-in-law is CEO of a large hardware supplier so we had enough XFX cards and motherboards to play with. There was nothing wrong with the XFX cards, there were no issues when installed on other mother boards.

The last XFX we tried had a burn in of 160hrs with no issues before installing it on the Striker, it lasted 58.2hrs before the Striker shorted out destroying the XFX and motherboard. It wasn't even being burnt in, Win XP was simply started and left to sit (with no screen saver).

My BIL submitted detailed test reports to ASUS and I think that was roughly 2 months ago, still waiting for a reply.

We didn't try SLI, I used the 2 9800's to power 4 screens, also had no issue with the cards being recognized.

Sorry I cant help.

My PC is still connected to the network via an ethernet cable. However, I would like to use that cable for digital television. Therefore a wireless connection via my motherboard to connect my computer would come in handy.
