    Opus's Anus is infected! :(

    I just ordered a P4 3.06Ghz CPU and a stick of 512PC2700 memory and hopefully it will arrive on Tuesday. Ordered it from Googlegear and set it to UPS next Day...total price was $609.00.

    Not too bad but god damn! Why now! I'm in the middle of a paying mixing/mastering gig! Well, just finished one song(thankfully!) and it rocked to say the least! I want my Anus working again!

    Waaah Waaah

    Opus, aka one bumming ANUS!

    Hey Opus,

    Sorry to hear you're having troubles. I am experiencing the same thing at the moment, since I bought a new Corsiar XMS3200 512mb of ram and a Zalman Quiet CPU fan/heatsink.

    Using the p4pe beta bios, maybe that's it - keeps saying that the system hung on last boot because of improper CPU setting. IT'S SET TO 2533 which is to say I am not overclocking.

    So frustrating!

    I think that there may be a bug in the p4pe as many have experienced this "cold boot" issue before.

    Cheers hope that's any help

    Definately check your ram. I've had this prob before and different ram cured the problem up. :c:

    I spoke to friggen soon! God friggen *&^*&^* (*&#$(*& #$)(*#$)*#$!!!!!

    so, the only thing left to swap out is the CPU and the power supply......

    If and only Googlegear(TERRIBLE SITE FOR BUYING THINGS BUY THE WAY!) would get my *&^#$* )(&#$)#$ order out!

    GGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! :roll:

    Ok, so far so good with the new CPU! So it might be the P4 northwood BSOD issue!

    Damn! Hate to waste a good CPU like that!

    Oh well, it's going to be put into a new machine for the living room entertainment center, maybe it will behave for me there!

    Will keep you posted!

    'Scuse my ignorance but what is the P4 Northwood BSOD issue ?
    Or put simply, what does BSOD mean?
    Reason I ask is I'm going to be buying a P4 Northwood down the line.
    Thanks...Tom

    There's an issue with certain P4's when overclocked they suddenly go south and stay south!

    They start to leak basically and they can't stay alive after a bit of warming up. Which in turn causes you to see the BSOD(Blue Screen of Death) and you may get No Paging File messages or IRQ Not Equal Or Less Than messages....or just plain restarts by itself!

    So, if you're going to get a P4, Do not overclock it unless you know what to do!

    I was messing around with it and pushed it too hard basically. I should have eased up and not tried to get the CPU speed up to high as well as messing around with the core voltage!

    DOH!!

    Opus :D
