    replied to GA-EP35-ds3p won't cold boot
    I solved the cold boot issue. I bought a new graphics card. I had trouble finding the right driver for the new card but a member of the nvidia forum guided me to the older driver download which fixed my problem. I was having the black screen problem and was unable to even start bios until installing...

    I've searched 633 pages and found one person with the same board and same problem who didn't find a fix but did find a work around. Once Windows 7 is started then instead of shutting down, put Windows in sleep mode. Not what I was hoping for but it is an option.

    I'm thinking the problem...

    GA-EP35-ds3p won't cold boot

    I haven't used this pc since I got hit by ransomeware a few years back. I cleaned all the drives and reinstalled Windows 7. I never had a cold boot problem before although I've read it is a problem with this board but after installing Windows, I can't get it to boot without going into BIOS and making...

    Re: Which AHCI driver for GA-EP35-DS3P

    Thanks! I found a download for the ICH9 SATA ACHI Controller and I already downloaded the Jmicron JMB36x controller from Gigabyte.

    Which AHCI driver for GA-EP35-DS3P

    I'm creating a slipstream disc for XP Pro and I don't know which driver to choose.

    I downloaded the newest preinstall drivers from Gigabyte and it lists different drivers than the manual shows. The manual says to install the ICH9 SATA ACHI Controller but the updated driver doesn't show...

    Re: Can't Overclock Anymore



    I have no idea. BIOS now shows 1.396v vcore in PC health control and 34*C system temp and 41*C CPU temp. I may take a little more off of CPU voltage. I'm pretty sure that the windows error counter was causing the OC problems....

    Re: Can't Overclock Anymore

    I went ahead and put my settings back the way they were. I believe the registry hack for error reporting will fix my overclock problems. I'm pretty sure that windows was slowing the system down to protect itself. It's the only thing that makes sense to me since...

    Re: Can't Overclock Anymore

    I noticed a warning to the right when I set CPU Host Clock Control to Manual to set System Voltage Control to Auto. I did that and everything seems to be OK for now. I was going to set everything to Optimized Defaults and just install EasyTune but I'll see...

    Re: Can't Overclock Anymore

    I took the battery out but this time I replaced it with a new one. We'll see how long it stays overclocked.
