Windows 7: Windows crashes on startup only when powering on system

MelancholyRose, don't be overly concerned about your equipment right now. Dave76 is excellent with this. He helped me when I was going through the same thing you are going through. AMD boards can be very finicky about ram. Sometimes you just need the right settings to get them to run stable. Dave is very good at that.

Just tomorrow, after you have set everything to default like we talked about earlier, use the settings Dave gave you and see how that goes.

MelancholyRose, good morning. Let us know when you get started. When you set bios to default, use Dave76's settings listed in post # 128. you will see a whole list of settings, don't worry about them, just the settings Dave listed, they are usually the first 4 settings. In case it confuses you this is what they will probably be listed as and the settings.
CAS# latency 8
RAS# to CAS# 8
RAS# precharge 8
tRAS 8
TRC 25
CR 2T

You will also want to set dram voltage at 1.5 and CPU NB at 1.2
Set your sata controller to raid and set the boot order then save and exit.

Loading Defaults is "Load Setup Defaults" correct? It's on the exit menu underneath the save options. Is that what I want to do first?

That would probably work, it is usually called optimized defaults. If you have optimized defaults use it otherwise use the one you have. Most MB it is F9. It should tell you in bios.

Okay, I managed to reset defaults and now I'm putting in the RAM info, only I have some questions:

I found CAS #
RAS to CAS #
and RAS # PRE

But what is tRAS?
Is TRC Row Cycle Time, and is CR Command Rate?

The fourth one down for me is ACT Time, that's the one I set to 25 unless you say differently.

It is usually the firsr 4 settings that you will change to 8. CR is command rate set it at 2T. If you have the option to set dram frequency, set it at 1333. If you have the option of FSB/Dram ratio set it to auto/default whichever option you have.
Set dram voltage to 1.5 and CPU NB to 1.2. CPU NB is different than NB. Set sata controllers to raid and boot order to however you prefer. I always set CD/DVD 1st and HDD #2. Save and exit.

Well, what I'm confused about is the fourth one down doesn't give "8" as an option, but it does give 25.

So right now I set it to
8
8
8
25

before they were
9
9
9
28

Is 28 the right thing to change to 25? I'm assuming that it is, since I think that's what Dave said.

My CPU/NB voltage says CPU/NB Offset Voltage. I tried changing that to 1.2 but the numbers turned red. I was really confused, since this is the only CPU/NB option I see that I can change.

The column says this
CPU and NB voltage mode: Offset
CPU Offset Voltage: 1.392
CPU/NB Offset Voltage: 1.100

There's an option to change CPU/NB voltage mode to manual, should I do that? I don't really know what "offset" is supposed to do.

MelancholyRose, hold on I hope we have help on the way. I would be guessing.

Never mind, I set it to "manual" and I could adjust the voltage. Only now it's yellow >.> Hope I don't break anything here.

Okay, maybe I should wait for help before I do anything else. I don't want to make the problem worse, here.
