The problems that you are having could be related to a number of causes.
To begin troubleshooting the system restart issue, please ensure that the memory you are using is fully supported. I can check that for you if you provide me with the system memory specifications (brand, model, speed, size, voltage and timings).
Also, please provide me with the model of the PCI Express* Graphics Card that you have installed.
When I bought the RAM, I searched supported ones. I hope, I didn't made an mistake here.
I've got 2x4GB (Kit) DDR3-1333 from Transcend CL9.
Graphics card? None, since the MB has an integrated GPU. I'm not gaming just HD viewer and encoder. Several ratings said, the internal graphics are sufficient for HD.
You shouldn't be trying to enable Virtu if you don't have a descrete graphics card installed. It is intended to bridge the integrated graphics controller with the descrete graphics controller.
I doubt that is the cause of your freeze-up issue though. You should check your CPU temps to make sure that these are not being exceeded. I would suggest you also try to run some memory tests to verify the memory is working correctly.
oh, virtu is only applicable when using a seperate graphics card? Thanks for the input, that solves one of the problems. I read in the usenet, that cou can configure energy savings on virtu, so I thought it's for all systems.
what's with UEFI, though? I did install it, but don't see anything configurable. In several HW tests, I saw screenshots of an UEFI config menu looking similar to the bios.
Where (which program) do you normally switch on SSD caching? I won't use the caching feature, since I installed windows directly on a SSD, but the windows start is extremly slow for an SSD (almost as slow as from HDD) since the windows updates were installed (before that, is was as fast as expedted).
Thanks and regards,
