CPU or MB fault, which one?

Q: CPU or MB fault, which one?

Hi All,
I have an Asus P4P800S-X, with an intel chip that has suddenly gone dead.
With no monitor on power up and no reset other than pulling the plug and cold booting.

Was working ok up until a week ago when drives started disappearing.
How do I tell if it's the MB or the CPU thats playing up?

Many Thanks

Preferred Solution: CPU or MB fault, which one?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: CPU or MB fault, which one?


If things started dissaPEARING IT MIGHT BE THE psu, As it starts burning out, it starts losing the ability to deliver the voltage to the drives. I would start by smelling it. I could be wrong but it sounds like that may be the problem!

A:Ntfs.sys PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGE AREA / Registry Fault

the error means that your PC asked for a page of memory , and the page was not available. when the operation could not continue, it BSOD'd and shut down. Its usually happens as a result of a hardware that is misfiring or failing. The 'Page_Fault_in_Nonpaged_Area' and "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" BSOD's often show up consecutively and alternately. Things to try to correct or identify the problem are to restore your machine to the last know working configuration. if the problem keeps appearing run disk check for errors on your HDD. if that shows nothing, the next most likely suspect is a problem with the Ram. You can download any number of programs that will test your ram for errors. Win 7 has a built in memory test (not sure about the RC though) and you do not have to burn a disc to run it. Hope that helps some.

A few days ago my laptop froze and I had to do a power shutdown, remove and refit the battery and reboot. Since then I have had some problems. 1. I cannot create a restore point. I get a message saying "the writer experienced a non transient error" 2. I cannot repair using a restore point. 3. If I try system reset I get a popup message saying    "systemreset.exe-corrupt file" .  "The file or directory EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD.LOG  is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility" I have run Chkdsk and sfc /scannow and no faults were found. Obviously something is wrong with the boot partition but the laptop boots up ok.  Any ideas how I can fix this please? Karen.

I upgraded from XP Home to XP Pro for the remote desktop feature. XP Pro did not recognize my Nvidia GeForce2 MX200 card and used a default adapter & driver. I could not get the current Nvidia driver to work and in my efforts I apparently disabled the VGA Adapter so now I have nothing on my screen. When I reboot the machine I see the initial data, like the memory test, but once windows initiates the screen goes black. I know how to enable the video adapter if I could see the appropriate places to click but obviously I can't. Help, PLEASE.

I wanna ask how S M A R T affects your computer system when it s on off It is recommended to turn it on off Are you people turning it on off why Sorry but this question bugged me for years RAMs What is the difference between quot RAM, S.M.A.R.T., fault HDD better quot RAMs and quot Normal quot RAMs Crucial claimed that their RAMs are quot better quot than others but I thought RAMs S.M.A.R.T., RAM, HDD fault are the same Or is there any function difference or more reliability What will happen if I placed both PC s and PC s on A PC S.M.A.R.T., RAM, HDD fault -only motherboard A PC -compatible motherboard I tried to copy files from my HDD to my HDD but during the middle of the copying the system keeps crash then recover then crash then recover and finally it gave a BSOD quot Data couldn t not be written onto D quot The HDD LED keeps flashing but there s no activity Is my HDD dying it s a Seagate ST series gb rpm nbsp

A:S.M.A.R.T., RAM, HDD fault

S.M.A.R.T. = Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology

It's a system that utilises internal hard disk drive monitoring technology.

Turning it on shouldn't translate in lower performance but remember that it is asking for the HDD to do some extra monitoring work.

The difference between "normal" & "better" can be many things. It can go from better PCB use, better memory modules yields to better warranty, etc. I've had a few issues with NoName RAMS so from now on I only go with brands that I know ( such as Crucial ). Brand RAM can generally work with very aggressive memory timings without any problems. I've had Stability problems on my A7V66-E when I used NoName RAM even though RAM timings were set to SPD ( most conservative timings ).

Using PC133 on a PC100 motherboard will make it work at 100. When you mix memory types, both of the memory modules will align on the slowest one ( 100 in this case ). Otherwise, it would be overclocking your PC100 module to 133 & as in any other overclock, luck plays a major role in it.

Hi all, I have installed W7 on an older model PC. The problem seem sto be with RAM, so I was wondering if it is maybe the OS or the motherboard. The motherboeard states the following:

Supports DDRII 533/400 up to 2GB Memory
Available with 2 DIMM slots supporting up to 2GB of DDRII 533 memory, GA-8VM800PMD-775 provides the highest performance platform with the high-bandwidth (4.2GB/s) mainstream DDRII memory solution.
Note: Use of a Double-Sided memory module (the single chip is 512 Mbit) is required if you wish to install a 1 GB memory module.

(specs from webpage)GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-8VM800PMD-775

There are 2 1gig chips in, 1 speed 667 and the other 800. I have a problem with them working together, do you have any advice? It also sometimes shows 1.5gig and the 1gig.

I have scratched in the Bios aswell, but I dont see a higher speed than 266 in its memory settings

Please help,

I hate to say it but your instincts are probably correct - the mobo has finally decided to go the way of all great mobos. The PSU would be the only idea I would have for you but it sounds as if you've tested that out as well. Luck...Let us know...Jazz

Hi Guys
My system has an IDE DVD writer and a SATA DVD writer.
The BIOS is setup but when I open my computer in windows the SATA drive is available the the IDE is no-where.
I go to device manager and add it and it is found straight away and I can write to it but when I reboot the pc, I have to go through the same rigmarole everytime. Windows is not saving it. I have checked the BIOS and ran anti virus and spyware but it never save the IDE drive
It has worked before so the master / slave device is correct
Please help to save

Hello guys, fancy a go at this one?

I have had to reinstall Win10 to cure a problem with importing pics and videos from an SD card, so it is all a squeaky clean installation. Now it won't play MP3 files, where it did before.

Not only will it not play MP3 files either with VLC media player, 'Groove Music' or Windows Media Player, but it will not allow those files to be read and uploaded to the net. I can, however, play the MP3 file in an app called 'Audacity' where they were recorded.

Anyone had this problem? Nothing wrong with the machine, and it can only be a Win10 problem. All other sound works fine, just won't play MP3's


A:New MP3 file fault

Can you play MP3 Files from sources other than Audacity

If you can, did you remember to download and install the Lame Encoder for Audacity which is required to encode a usable MP3, it could also be some other encoder setting that's causing the ability to play.

Hello Friends,

Please help me !!

I have Gygabyte Motherboard with two RAM's installed,

The problem is, My statem is hanging up always, so i removed one RAM from Motherboard then I started system, System is working fine without any hang-ups after removing one RAM, so i think one RAM is fault,

What should i do now? Is there any software to check/repair faulty RAM's. ??

Thanks ,

A:Help - Memory Fault?

Take the stick of RAM you removed and exchange it with the one stick in the system now. If it works fine, then move it to the slot where it didn't work before. See if it works. If it doesn't, try the other stick. If it doesn't then the RAM slot is no good.

Here's a delimma I have, I need some advice.

I've been pondering this in my mother's computer crapped out...the power supply went out. We had our tech guy come out to replace it, that's cool.

Well, he said as he was hooking up the new one it arced and fried the usb ports and the mouse port. I questioned her about him unplugging the machine - it's on a UPS...she said she didn't think he unplugged it at all.

So my question is, is he at fault? If not, cool. If so, what should I so about it...I'm in the process of replacing the machine now...just need some I even need to go there?

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

You could try booting from the installation disks and doing a boot repair. If you have had Windows Backup, Acronis, or any other backup, ever, you might try right-clicking on the file and opening properties, and see if you can find a previous version.

You might also try the latest malicious software removal tool; I would have to ask how to access it.

Hi, Mary and welcome to TSG

I never came across this as a " problem " but is there a chance somebody may be playing a joke on you ?
The reason I say this is that there is a small program ( I forget the name ) that will force \ tell your floppy and or cd rom to run.

It's been a long time since I used C++, and I'm not sure, but I find it doubtful that the program would segfault from just exiting that function. More likely, the error is occurring a few lines later, while "13" is still in the output buffer and just hasn't been displayed yet.

Hello -

I'm not sure that the malware item I see in the logs is responsible for the IE issues. We'll address the malware I do see, and go from there. It may be you'll end up back in the Windows XP section for continued support.

Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days this thread will be closed.

First, it would appear that AVG was once installed, but is not currently your AntiVirus of choice, is that correct? If so...

I see remnants of AVG still.

Please use the 32bit AVG Remover available from AVG on this page.

Yes - they're the worst! My PC recently started failing to bring up a network connection on boot-up.

A:Fault Bucket???

As I understand it...fault buckets are basically program debug mistakes which cause the system/program to crash.See it happens on my system, I just assume that the program has damaged files, needs updating, or needs reinstalling. If it's a known program that I can't update and which I know has a history of being troublesome, I just ignore the error...since the resolution would probably involve removing the program.If I had a large number of these, due to the same application...I would remove the program permanently.Louis

I run Windows XP HE and get the blue screen of death and a message that my PHYSICAL memory is dumping to disk. I then see numbers ascending, I just switch off, this is the only way I can escape !

Every time I reboot it checks the disks for errors but gets ALMOST all the way through then HANGS. To overcome this I simply reboot again and it is ok.

I am worried that this DUMPING PHYSICAL MEMORY TO DISK will keep happening. Maybe even when I am away from my pc with disastrous results. It just suddenly happens with no warning. I no longer feel I can just leave my pc on unless I am watching it all the time. Very frustrating with broadband

In addition when I boot up I get an error message that the CPU is unworkable, hitting F1 gets me in ok.

A:Is it a hardware fault or O/S ?

Sounds like you have some serious hardware issues.

The "dumping physical memory to disk" is fine, all its doing is recording to disk a copy of the contents of the memory, for use by a Tech in diagnosing the problem (maybe...)

Its not harmful, its just writing a file.

Sounds like you need some physical hands on Tech Service on the PC though.

For months now I have been unable to start my computer normally. If I just leave it to start up I get STOP 0x0000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA, but strangely, if I press F8 and select 'Debugging mode', it runs fine.
Problems started a while back, when I was getting lock-ups and unexpected restarts. When I turned off the automatic restart thing I got the same stop error as above. Someone suggested that the ram was at fault, so I replaced both sticks and the problems continue. The strange thing is, when I do get it running in Debugging mode, it runs fine, unless I try to do something intensive on the CPU like converting a video, or playing a WMA with DRM.

A:Fault Disk

First thing you want to do is check the cabling. Sometimes a loose power cable will cause those kind of errors. Also check the data cable to make sure it's properly connected both to the drive and the motherboard. If in doubt, try different data cables.
On the power side of things: I got the "device ide ideportx did not respond within the timeout period", and the paging error messages a lot when my drive clicked intermittently due to a weak power supply. i had a lot of trouble figuring it out because i thought my drive was failing or my cables were bad. turns out it was a faulty power supply. all my problems went away when i got a more powerful one. depending on your configuration, make sure you have a powerful enough PSU. I'm not very knowledgeable on how to calculate how much wattage is enough, but you can ask in the power supply forum
you could also test by plugging the drive in a different computer. if it seems healthy, you'll know it's not the drive, but something it's connected to (either cables or PSU)

last one is your drive could simply be dying. you can use hardware diagnostics to find that out. see a list here
make sure the above checks out and is ruled out before you try diagnostics (or even better run diagnostics while drive is connected to another computer). if the cables or PSU are faulty, the diagnostics could give you incorrect results.

I have 4 x 4gb ddr3 ram modules fitted to my desktop.

I have started to find that the amount the system recognises seems to change of its own accord.

Yesterday i started my machine and my system reported 16 GB installed but only 12 useable.

I then had to do a restart due to a windows update and it then said 16GB installed and 16GB available.

I have just started my system and it now says 12GB installed but only 8GB useable.

I think it may be a faulty module that works when it sees fit. But with it now saying 12 installed and only 8 useable I'm not sure.

I have attached a shot of the system info screen and resource monitor from now.

I was trying to eliminate a virus from my pc. I downloaded an .exe file that needed run while windows is in safemode. I rebooted my pc and hit F8 and chose SafeMode, but safe mode said it will not reboot due to a threat, probably the virus and tells me to reboot, I cannot get past the blue screen.. Sigh. Here is where I got stupid.

I went to the System Configuration Utility function. I went to: BOOT.ini tab and then checked /SAFEBOOT. Well, now my windows only wants to boot in Safemode but safemode will not boot. I am once again stuck on the blue screen, but this time I do not know of any options to get around it.

I tried hitting F8 and telling it to start windows normally, but it goes right to SafeMode and that gets me no where since SafeMode doesn't like me today.

I get the double fault halt (blue screen, error 7F, code1 8, code2 80042000, code3 0, code4 0) when I am extracting something from 7-zip archives. The halt never occurs except for extracting from 7zip archives. The halt occurs on every 7-zip archive, both on regular archives and on self-extracting archives. The halt always occurs in the same position of extraction process, as per archive; the position is different for different archives, but always same for a particular archive.

I heard the double fault halt can occur because of damaged RAM, wrong hardware connections or kernel drivers errors. I checked the RAM thoroughly, and the RAM seems to be ok. I tried changing RAM, - the halt still occurs. I reassembled the PC, - the halt still occurs. So I guess it is a kernel driver error, isn't it?

I am attaching the minidump file. Please help me. Thanks.

A:Double fault

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your minidump crashes with memory corruption. It has a bugcheck of 7F. Faulty ram?


One of three types of problems occurred in kernel-mode: (1) Hardware failures. (2) Software problems. (3) A bound trap (i.e., a condition that the kernel is not allowed to have or intercept). Hardware failures are the most common cause (many dozen KB articles exist for this error referencing specific hardware failures) and, of these, memory hardware failures are the most common.

Hi, I just pressed the power button on my laptop and the power light came on as well as the battery light and then went off after a second, so I pressed the power button again and it did the same no matter how many times I did it or no matter how long I did it, so I took the battery out of the laptop and blew the pins, left it out for 3 mins and put it back in, and then it worked fine, im using it now, but is there anything that may be causing this.
it is the first time it has happened but I thought if it is gonna be a problem I might as well as get ahead of it.
So does anyone know what is causing this or will it just be dust on the battery

I am new to this forum (and forums in general) and this may not be the correct place for the question below. If it is the wrong forum, can someone point me in the right direction?

I have three errors that occur in the Error Log. One of them I Googled and found a hardware problem. There are two others (766399529 & 767407337) that I have no clue as to what they are.

How does one find out what these errors mean?
Is there a site that will help me decode all of the text after the error number"

Where do these error codes show up? If in a BSOD and you upload the dump file we can give you more information. Dump files are usually in c:\windows\minidump and are in the format *.dmp

Vista machines should remain Vista machines. Other than that, you risk drivers not working, as you've found out. I'd suggest you tell your father to get used to Vista.
