    Default ddr3 + other problems, need fast solution

    Hi all.
    Installing now my new rig seen on my signature. I have major problems with this i5 ****. Nothing works, i have had about 30 BSOD:s, instelled windows xp sp2 about 4 times within 3hours, so i need fast solution to this, if i dont, im sure i sell this pile of **** as fast i bought them. Huge disappointment!! Ok, the problems..don't know even where to start..but first, memory.. DDR3 1600, my mb has 1600 but its marked 1600(OC). So how i can enable OC mode to get ok with memory? I found some "extension" from Bios. Turned it on, wonderfull..ddr3 1600..and then without warning, bios itself OC computer in 3.2ghz, and no, i didnt touch nothing. Just made the memory thing. SO do i need slower memory on this or do i get this **** work today, till i throw that pile of crap down from 7th floor. Have had never earlier this kinda problems on any pc. More to come, when i can luckily get in windows, my dvd-rw has disappeared..yep..try to install ***king drivers with that..when i install windows again, it works like a ******* angel BUT when i go first time windows, its still ok and i can install some drivers..but when i boot up..wohoo! NO cd/dvd-rw anymore visible..when i check what hw is installed..no dvd-rw..ok, i downloaded samsung driver on it.. "device not found" WTF? Just installed windows on it and now it cant find it? -.- np..
    I have installed memorys in 1 and 3 slots.. (manual shows up them from nearby to processor to closer to atx power thing, 2,1,4,3..so mems are in 2 and 4..(1,3). So any sure ideas is some component broken or just i5 sucks a** ? All made up like the manuals and experience says..

    Wow, talk about rotten luck! You didn't disable the DVD drive in BIOS did you? Did you try resetting BIOS completely and then installing drivers and everything? I'd leave the RAM alone until you are sure that everything works.

    Wow indeed. I didnt disable it..because if i disable it, then i cant install windows, right? All sata (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) are shown and seen in Bios. dvd-rw drive opens up and takes dvd inside, cd inside, whatever you wanna insert..and then nothing..no pop of cd/dvd, no drive letter, nothing. Broken dvd drive? I made a shot on that too; load default settings..still same result..quite frustrating..no idea whats wrong..but im now changing SATA connectors to another ones..if MB has dead SATA's.. and i change memory places to 2,4..(1,3)..to see do it has effect on this.. EDIT..hmm..i didnt clear cmos.. making that one next too..but i need to first know how to get the memory work..or do it cause the problems..even to dvd drive..

    Now i just changed the SATA connector places..we see what happens..i install now once again Windows xp sp2..and i no have still idea how to make the memory settings..Bios is just too sucky..it has only that "extention" thing, what OC 2.6ghz -> 3.2ghz but makes my memory correct..so next if i dont see my dvd-rw when i install the drivers, then i change memory slots..and install once again windows xp sp2.. and if it still fails, i go with the *king OC **** and allow 3.2ghz OC and install windows xp sp2 with memory corrected settings..and if it then wont show my dvd drive, im going to sleep 4 real..-.- ..and tomorrow will clear cmos and try all those things up again..if nothing will make it stable and work..i put this **** components on sale 4 real..

    Uhm,no, it is 0:31 @ night in here ..I don't know what to do next..if i can't setup the memorys correct..because im quite sure the memory gives me BSOD, because there is not support to 1600..
    But i send e-mail tomorrow on store where i bought those stuff..because in their web site they have in mb specs "supports 1600 DDR3"..so..they have wrong specs..but if i get quite stable windows, i can run again mem test..but im quite sure too that unsupported memory may look "broken" / gives results that mems are broken or just another stick..but so far, imo, dvd-rw works alot better now..so if i can fix dvd-rw, then i only need to set memory up..and i hope the replace of slower mem is not option!

    A few ideas:

    -Check the memory one stick at a time, that'll tell you quickly if it's a RAM problem or not
    -Check your memory voltage, increase it to 1.65V to ensure it's stable if something is wrong there
    -check your memory timings, make sure they're 9-9-9 for the time being.
    -see if there's a new BIOS for your mobo, it's possible there's a memory compatibility issue
    -set your CPU to stock speed, no OC, and make sure that's not causing the problem. run stock settings/speeds
    -lastly, no offense.........but why Win XP? Seriously, it's an old OS and always had compatibility issues, I wouldn't be surprised if it has issues with newer hardware and models. Just a thought.

    Ok, here is the newest situation, i menaged to install Windows xp sp2, can found dvd-rw and everything works fine. I just changed SATA connector and all works like charm now BUT there is only that little issue now, that my memory is not correct. Bios, 1333. Not possible to change it in 1600. And i have 1600 memory. So, how i change my memory correct, without that little thing that my cpu makes automatic OC while i correct my mem -.- .. This is strange too because my mems run @ wrong speed but i don't have (YET) any problems with it!! o_0. I need to know first, that do the Bios update fix the problem, or is it just Bios setting(what i dunno,because im new on i5 stuff)
    So in bad luck i have dead SATA connector in my mb -.- But i have 8 of them, so if 2 works (what i need) im not sending it back, until it works. Hehe, this is kinda opinion thing, but Skyguy; "Win xp for gaming" is my opinion..Im just paranoid, thats all..but need to tell you, im interested of Win 7..Time will tell what happens :cool:

    1. If i wont figure out how to enable 1600(OC) support, i test memory's.
    2. G.Skill sticks and package says 1.50v.
    3. Yes, starts with 9-9-9, all correct from package again (9-9-9-24).
    4. Will google up today about Bios thing and research do it gain the setting(s) i need.
    5. Not planning to OC this till get this thing working normal at least week or something. Then maybe OC.

    Your board has a 1 Second OC Genie button that's used for overcloking your system, but your chioce of an OS is going to mess everything up. You cannot run 4GBs with XP unless it's the 64 bit version, so do yourself and your system a favor and buy either Vista or Windows 7 64Bit.

    Try a single module like Sky suggested and see what happens, then remove it and try the other one, if there are no problems reinstall both modules, and increase your voltage, try 1.60v first, if everythings ok increase it to 1.65v.

    Maybe later win 7..but i just like more XP than vista or win 7..also thinking about linux..but dunno yet.. I tested yesterday a little windows, works ok now, but i test today games..i know i can't use all 4gb but i knew that before i bought memorys..running mems @ 1.50v..as manufacturer recommends.. not happily will raise voltage.. :S. Im thinking to solve this by OC but i think i need to raise alot clock speeds in bad case :P -.-..but i test today later more..so far got impressed of i5 speed.. over 16k in 3d mark 2006 all defaults..
