Ok this is really annoying me now, roughly every 20th reboot or so im getting strange graphics corruption at the post screen and the machine fails to hit the xp login screen i just get a no signal message on the monitor or a black screen, then i have to turn the machine off then on, if i hit reboot the corruption is still there this rules out any driver problems ive updated the bios, reseated the graphics card and cpu, reset cmos, tried the memory in different channels, its done it with 2 different monitors a usb keyboard and mouse and a ps/2 keyboard and mouse, all temps are well within specs, its completely random doesnt matter if ive been running prime95 for 8 hours or if ive just been surfing then reboot, so it doesnt look like a heat issue, so far ive been running it pretty much 24/7 so i dont know if it can happen from a cold boot or not.
one thing ive heard is the a8n32 auto overclocks the 7800 gpu core 40mhz even if the option is disabled so perhaps thats the problem? but wouldnt that show up during gaming or a 5 hour loop of 3dmark01?
the system is 100% memtest86 stable
the system is 100% prime95 stable both cores
no games crash or freeze they are completely stable
ive looped 3dmark01se for about 4 hours no corruption completely stable
two pics, i also have a video if anybody wants to see that
Any advice is as always appreciated
specs in sig …ofcourse
