I think I solved my Infinite Loop Problem to just go to another...

  1. Ever since my old motherboard died (Biostar NF320 Socket 754) and I bought a replacment board, a MSI K8MM3-VH (VIA Based, should have seen it coming). I've been having blackout problems and lock-ups due to Infinite Loop problems however I think I solved it by disabling ATI Smart by going into services.msc and ramping up my memory timings. However now I'm having Windows problems related to memory, I think...

    My Memory Timings that are in use when this happens is:

    DRR Speed: 200mhz
    CAS: 2.5
    RAs to Cas Delay - 8T
    Command Rate is 1T

    And the black outs and lock-ups almost seem familar to the Infinite Loop Syndrome however I have no idea where to go from hear.

    By the Way I have tried Multiple video cards on this system (Both ATI) and both have failed. If I slow down my memory timings then windows tells me that the videocard hangs, I've tried registry fixes, the beta patch by VIA, turning off VPU recover, turning off ATI Smart, have updated drivers to everything, (didn't go to Cat. 7.7 though because then Invalid Display CRT errors appear, I get anywhere between 2 and 8 errors of this when I boot up).

    The strang thing is though once out of every 10 or 15 random boots, the next boot up will go smoothly and I can play games for hours, I have no idea what is going on...

    (I hope you have access to a computer with a CD burner.)

    I've found this tool very helpful at identifying bad memory. It's positively identified bad ram 100% of the time for me. Download this and follow the instructions to burn it to a blank CD-R. Then boot from the CD-R on your suspect computer. Run the Extended Diagnostics for at least one complete cycle. (Usually if it doesn't detect RAM pattern errors on the first cycle then the RAM is good and there isn't much need to run additional cycles.)
