I recently upgraded my computer. I bought an Asus P8 P67 LE Motherboard to support my Intel Core i7 2600K processor. I also bought a Corsair DDR3 4 GB Ram stick. Ever since I replaced my old pieces with these new ones, I'm getting BSODs and constant freezing.
The BSODs I've had so far had "IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_EQUAL" and "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR", both happening at random times.
The most annoying problem is the random freezups. Everything will freeze except my mouse. Whatever action I do (like typing a sentence on MSN or clicking in "minimize") all "accumulate" and in one big flash, all my actions happen at the same time. The system will run fine until the next freezeup.
I've just formatted my partition and re-installed Windows 7. The freezeups are still here. I even had a freezeup during the installation of Windows 7!
I've ran memtest86+ and let it do 6 passes. No errors were found.
I bought a new power supply because of these following issues:
- Ever since I bought the new hardware, the bootup is weird. I click on the power button of my computer and it may take 4 seconds until it actually starts up. Sometimes it starts up, shuts down, and starts up normally.
- On bootup, sometimes I get a "Overclocking failed! Press F1 to enter setup" message. The weird thing is that I never overclocked anything. I'm just using stock settings on everything.
My gut feeling is that the motherboard is by default overclocking my system, which is causing instability. I have no clue really. Really hoping all the information I have given will help me find an answer.
