  • Configuration for GA-EP45-DS3P

    Hello,

    I have this motherboard GA-EP45-DS3P with an Intel E8400, and 2*2Go of GSkill F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI. The Bios version is F8.

    I installed 64-bit Windows 7 (RC 7100). Can you help me to configure the BIOS because I have some reboot and some Bosd. And the Bios configuration is the Safe Default value.

    Thx.

    Re: Configuration for GA-EP45-DS3P

    The first step would be to load optimized defaults. Failsafe ones can sometimes, strangely make problems worse. I see what you have done by loading failsafes, and it's logical, but it's best to work on potimized default values to gain stability.

    Have a quick search of the forum for "DS3P BIOS Template" and fill one in, posting it here. This way everyone can see what you currently have set, and what would be best to change to get things working propperly.

        Sorry, my keyboard's been smoking crack again.

        If using potimised defaults, be sure to keep a window open or burn some incense. If in the USA with their drug laws, where you may as well smoke crack due to cannabis being considered just as bad (LOL!) I'd consider some sort of charcoal filtration system.

                  Ok, I'll try to test it tonight. But you have just change two parameters : CPU Host Clock Control to Enabled and PCI Express to 100 or Auto?

                    Sorry that template I used is for overclocking, you can leave CPU Host control disabled and PCI Express I suggest setting 100 anyway

                      Hello, i tried your bios configration, expect the System Memory Multiplier (Auto and not 2.00B).

                      Now i have this Bosd on my Windows Seven :
                      SYSTEM_SERVICE8_EXCEPTION and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA and SERVICE_MANADGEMENT.

                      I think it's possible that my memory have a problem. May be i change my memory.

                      If you have any ideas i'm interresting.

                      Thx.

                        Use 2.40B as I suggested, then if you have errors then yes maybe your ram is bad. Can you test it one by one with Memtest86+

                          Thx for your reply.

                          Bbut the 2.40B for memory is for a 333Mhz FSB Memory? the value 2.40D is for 400Mhz, it's the good value for my memory?

                          For memtest i tried this and the memory pass with succes 14 times. So i don't know what is the problem with my hardware.

                            You set 333 CPU FSB Right? Then you must set 2.40B memory multiplier to run the ram at 800Mhz.

                            There is no 2.40D so you know.

                            If you use 2.00x or Auto your ram may only run at 667, please use 2.40B if you use CPU FSB 333

                              OK. I will try this value after my job.

                              For 333 FSB :

                              -------- Clock Chip Control ------------------

                              >>> Standard Clock Control
                              CPU Host Clock Control Disabled
                              CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) 333 ------> THIS LINE?
                              PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) Auto
                              CIA2 Disabled



                              PS : I'm sorry if my english is bad
