I'm not sure if this could cause the error but I have just found out that my roommate turned on my computer while I wasn't home and turned it off (most likely during POST) by holding down the power button, could this have caused the error?

I checked my RAM with Memory Diagnostics Tool and no errors were detected.
Break your roomie's fingers! If this has not repeated I would say it's related to the incorrect power down.

I regards to the WEI number dropping, maybe "turbo" has been disabled in BIOS.

I've only seen that error after a power surge, but it could be from a hard shutdown which is also a power anomaly.

The solution has always been to reset BIOS to defaults as suggested. Have you done that yet?

Andrew wasn't asking if they are at default, he was telling you to reset them to defaults which is a type of Reset.

I just went into my BIOS to have a look at my settings and noticed that now every time I enter MB Intelligent Tweaker in my BIOS I get:

The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes in voltage. Last settings in BIOS setup my not coincide with H/W states.

This now only happens in my BIOS every time I enter MB Intelligent Tweaker and not on startup or reboot.
I am not very familiar with BIOS settings, would anyone know how to reset my BIOS settings to defaults?

thanks,

Make sure you have the latest BIOS version update, from the mobo maker's Support Downloads webpage for your model. Follow the instructions carefully to install it, taking no chance you will lose power. Ask back if you have questions. We have hardware experts who can assist you.

If you have the latest then look through the various BIOS tabs (pages) for Reset to Optimal Defaults. Once you select it using the key shown for doing so, then be sure to Save before Exiting.

If this fails then you may have a dying CMOS battery which can't hold settings, but in that case the time and/or date is normally off too.

Ok, so after resetting to the optimized defaults in MB Intelligent Tweaker the error message no longer appears in my BIOS and my RAM Windows Index has now moved up from 7.6 to 7.8, not quite the 7.9 it was before but definitely an improvement. Is there anything else that may be affecting that little amount of the RAMs Windows Index?

According to your motherboard manual found here:

Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 | Manual

Hit the delete key as soon as you turn on your computer to get into the bios. Then hit f7 to do a factory reset of the bios settings.

EDIT: It looks like for your bios you have to go to each sub menu and hit f7 to reset the optimized factory defaults. It only seems to do it for whatever submenu you are in. Does not appear to be a once and done all reset button. Quite odd actually. But anyways, the first one I would reset is MB Intelligent Tweaker.

EDIT 2:
Just saw your reply. I would still go into the bios and rest all items under each submenu.
Also for the ram; Make sure all your drivers are updated.

Then follow Option one on this link:

Many of the problems we see here are accompanied somewhere by the words "tweak" or "tweaker" since Win7 is already so lean it can benefit from few tweaks beyond normal System Settings.

If all you needed was a link, then my apologies: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS . Usually I'm a linkin machine.

Compare the install you have to the perfect install in my signature below (same for retail). If it varies much in the tools and methods you used or use then I'd consider doing a perfect install.

On that hardware Win7 should be blazing fast with no hangs or hesitations ever, unless you can trace them to your internet.

Sorry, I'm a bit confused by your reply, I am no longer getting the error, but my RAM Windows Index is still at 7.8 instead of 7.9, do you know of anything else that may have dropped my RAM down 0.1 of a point?

thanks,

That score is hardly scientific, more an approximation.

My focus is on a perfect install on adequate hardware. The rest takes care of itself.
