Windows 7: Another "Cold Boot" issue...

Another "Cold Boot" issue...

Well my Seagate was giving me the clicking sound and serious delays with windows explorer. Therefore i decided to turn to a Samsung HD103SJ for my boot drive and keep seagate for backup as 2nd SATA drive...

After re-installing windows 7 i was facing some mysterious issues.
To summarise, with memory remap enabled ON i was getting errors at memtest from boot cd. When i disabled memory remap everything seemed OK.

The settings that made it stable with memory remap ON were manual settings for BIOS with DRAM freq at 1600MHz, timings at 9-9-9-24-2N, DRAM Voltage at 1,65V, IMC Voltage at 1,25V and PCH Voltage at 1,15V (which however always shows up as 1,12V or lower).

Everything seemed ok so far. But the next morning and since then i have been looking at the (in)famous "cold boot" problem.

Every single time i boot my pc after certain hours of inactivity, i get a BSOD right when the "Windows Starting" logo shows. Then the system restarts, i wait for the beep POST, i shut down the pc and when i turn it back on everything is perfect. Endless gaming and Windows operations without a glitch.

The BSOD is very quick and cannot read what it says and no minidump is created in C:\Windows.
I did find what seems like a minidump but it is located in
C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\WATCHDOG and the crash is showing date 13/3/2010 whereas right now (16/3/2010) i started my system in the exact same manner described above (???)

I don't find any solutions in the web for this "cold boot" thing and am trying here as a last hope...
I attach my minidump without being sure it's relevant

Any advice would be great!

Hi! I just burned a copy of the Windows 8 Developer Preview onto a DVD. I have created a partition for the new OS (because I don't want to install over Windows 7). When Windows 7 is running and I pop in the DVD, the computer directly recognizes it as a runnable program. I'm also able to install...
