Defective Chipset, Need Help

I just recieved my new Chaintech 7NIL1 board on Wednesday...

Well, after three days of troubleshooting both hardware and software, the chipset is bad!

I expected higher from nVidia. This is the nForce2 Ultra 400 we are talking about here.

The error I get with 3D accelerated audio/video files/games is like this (Using FreeSpace 2 as an example). I'm currently running 98 Lite (The hacked version that is actually stable), but I have run 2000 Pro and Server 2K3 within the past two days.

Anyway, here is the log:

Code:

Any ideas? I've tried with the chipset drivers installed, and vice versa.

I have tried four different RAM sticks, three different PSU's, two different hard drives, and three different OSes. I have also tried loading failsafe/bios defaults, as well as running "Bare Bones," but nothing works.

I'm really pissed at nVidia right now.

You should reset the CMOS, load bios defaults, and run memtest86+ from it's bootcd image. Chances are the bios is a bit off on memory timings and/or you have slightly defective ram.

This works well when you have another known working system so you can swap out the memory and test on the other board.

Be sure that you're not using "aggressive" cpu settings or anything overclocked in the bios. Also make sure you're using the proper voltages for the cpu and memory. If they're set on "auto" you may want to manually select the proper settings. Undervolting on that can also cause instabilities.

It could also be caused by improperly loaded drivers, especially the AGP port driver. You should load up WinXP SP2, then load up the latest Nvidia chipset drivers.

Looks like addressing problems to me. Doubt it's a BIOS setting unless isn't in the caching the 0800., or if you are trying to shadow it.

does it run in compatiblity mode?

Never mind, these ThermalTake coolers are CRAP. I put in my old Duron, slapped an Aspire fan onto it, and now it is stable.

I'm gonna go buy a better HSF...

Supports up to 3200+ my ass! TT just lost a customer.

Thermaltake builds some of best cooling products around.. Or at least thats the conclusion I've come to from my experience.. I run a Volcano 10+ Slim on my OC'd cpu (2500+ to 2800+) and my cpu never gets higher then about 125 which isn't too hot.. Guess it depends on the person's definition of "HOT".. :D

what are you smoking? thats really fucking hot. my cpu is oc'ed from 1.8 to 2.2 (or as you would call it "2400+ to "3200+") and it runs 110 tops.

is it an intel? and what do you mean "as you would call it.."? I'm just listing AMD models, so technically, its what AMD calls it, not me.. The intel chips run cooler then the athlon series amd chips.. everyone knows that

mines a mobile athlon, thats why i listed the actual clock speed and the PR rating.

Well the mobile chips are designed to run cooler.. At least its AMD. Intel sucks.. I dont care that my cpu gets to 125 cause the Athlon XP series dont start fucking up till about 160-170, and dont fry till about 190-200.. :D

dude 125f is too fucking hot. my mobile is oc'ed and fcore bumped so it will put out just as much heat as a normal barton will. check out forums.amd.com if you still dont believe me. and actually you are wrong about the numbers, a barton is rated to operate until 75c (or 167f) and will burn up at 80c ( 175f) what are you using for a hsf?

I don't remember saying that I didn't believe what you are saying.. Nor do I disagree with what you are saying. I'm around computers all day and most of them run about 130-140.. Which I know is too hot.. But I'm not worried about my cpu frying and I haven't seen any performence issues yet.. :D What is it with people assuming the worst when I post? :p
