Black screen and auto reboot with this message in event viewer.

rock

HI,

I have XP Pro SP3 and a gigabyte Radeon HD4850 Display card on an Asus
P5Q3 mobo. It has 4GB RAM and 650 Watts power. No over clocking, just
straight.

For some reason the screen goes black every now and then and then reboots.

In event viewer there no problem show except this is ACEEventLog.

Any ideas what may be causing it. It is so random and just happens
anytime.


Any help please?

First Try Uninstalling and reinstalling the Video Driver.
Then Check memory with
http://www.memtest86.com/

Russ

Hi,

I have just uninstalled everything ATI from Device Mgr and Add/Remove
Programs but not sure what to replace them with. I have the orig CD
that came with the 4850 however that has been updated.

What version of ATI Catalyst do I need to download and install?

Thanks

Russ SBITS.Biz [SBS-MVP]

First you use the CD that the Video Card came from
(Go to Device Management First write down what Video card it says there, and
then "Uninstall" the Video Card
It will go to "VGA" mode and then when you reboot
it should ask for a cd
If you don't have a CD or the install doesn't install the Video Driver
Go to ATI and download the correct Driver for your card
(You may have to do some home work to find out what you have.)

Yes I did this and used Driver Sweep then installed the latest ATI 10-1
drivers and catalyst.

It stayed up without a black screen and reboot for a couple of days but
I have noticed it has now rebooted again a couple of time over the last
few hours.

I used Memtest 86 and each stick passes by itself but when I put them
both in (any slot,) it does not finish the test but reboots after a few
seconds.

Any ideas where to go now?

Thanks

It sounds like the 2nd slot may be bad.
(IE cold Solder Joint)
Do you have another stick to try?
Russ
No I don't and as they both work separately and I am told that XP
doesn't recognise any more than 3GB or so, I am not sure what I would
gain by getting another one.

This is the only mobo I have that takes this new type of Ram as well.

Is there another reason for me to buy another?

I am not sure whether I mentioned it but I have an Asus P5Q3 mobo with
the 2GB a stick RAM and 650W power.

This mobo also has the 3rd Sata plug on the mobo is somehow blocked and
I can't use it as the plug will not click in enough, so maybe it is time
that I did a return?

Thanks for the time

Russ SBITS.Biz [SBS-MVP]

Well I was thinking of Troubleshooting
Since they both work in slot one, and it's only when you put in the 2nd slot
it fails
(Meaning I think Slot 2 may be bad.)
I was thinking if you had one more you could absolutely be sure it's the
slot.
Any chance this board is on Warranty?

slot it fails
(Meaning I think Slot 2 may be bad.)
I was thinking if you had one more you could absolutely be sure it's the
slot.
Any chance this board is on Warranty?

No I don't and as they both work separately and I am told that XP doesn't
recognise any more than 3GB or so, I am not sure what I would gain by
getting another one.

This is the only mobo I have that takes this new type of Ram as well.

Is there another reason for me to buy another?

I am not sure whether I mentioned it but I have an Asus P5Q3 mobo with
the 2GB a stick RAM and 650W power.

This mobo also has the 3rd Sata plug on the mobo is somehow blocked and I
can't use it as the plug will not click in enough, so maybe it is time
that I did a return?

Thanks for the time

Thank you Russ. Yes I knew what you meant about troubleshooting it but
I had tried them in all the slots with the same result. There seems to
be a conflict of some type when they both go in.

Anyway, I will call the store tomorrow and see what I have to do to
return and swap it. I am in Sydney Oz.

Such a drag but in the last 3 weeks I have had this..

1. a driver issue with my ATI HD4850 drivers which I have fixed now with
new 10-1 drivers..
2. 2 new hard drives losing contact with XP. I have since fixed one
with 500GB a TestDisk 'write' however I am unable to get all of the data
off the other 500GB with Ontrack before I 'write'. I see it all with
Tesdisk so know its there.

Maybe they are all related to the crashes caused by the mobo/memory problem.

Not my month I'm afraid.. Still, we all have them don't we?

Many thanks Russ, once again it is appreciated.

oz :)
