Based on the numbers of tests done by you, so far, I'd recommend the following:
Restart the system into BIOS by pressing <F2> during the boot process. Once in the BIOS setup utility, press <F9> to restore BIOS default settings. Reset any customized BIOS settings. Clear all DMI event logs by setting the option to "Enable", which is located in the Advanced/Event Log Configuration section of the BIOS Setup utility. Press <F10> to save the new settings and reboot the system. Test.
If the problem continues, try with tested memory (see the link below), as I did not find "AX3U1333GB2G8-1G" amongst:
Sorry, to bring back an old thread.
Has this issue been resolved?
My company had the exact same problem with this board.
We built with the DH55TC, i5-650, 4x 2GB DDR3 1066, 2x 1TB SATA HDD's, with a 600W PSU, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 260.
We attempted to load Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit
The system would shut down half way through the install.
To finish the install we removed all the RAM except 1x 2GB stick and the system loaded fine.
The system continued to work fine with 2x 2GB sticks, 3x 2GB sticks, but once we added the fourth it would randomly shut down.
We had another DH55TC in stock and switched the board. Same issues.
Both boards had the newest BIOS flashed on it.
Windows event logs as well as the BIOS event logs showed no issues.
Resetting default settings made no difference.
Ok so we have since ordered a different motherboard to use in this system.
We got a MSI P55-CD53
Swapped the board out and put all 4x 2GB Chips back in.
We were using Crucial CT25664BA1339 Memory.
The system still shuts down with 8GB of memory installed?!?
So for us, we we're amazed first of all.
We are now going to try getting OCZ memory to use in this system.
We've got a problem with the DH55HC when we use 4x 2GB of AData 1333MHz the computer gives a lot of problems:
- it reboots when you try to install something
- it crashes the videos on youtube and hangs the video games
- it doesnt recognize the VGA onboard with it's amd Catalyst EAH 4670 HD video card . When i remove 2x 2GB from the configuration the AData works perfectly. I upgraded my BIOS to the newest one and used the newest drivers from the web but it didn't solve anything. We use a Intel i5-661 processor and intel shows it is compatible with this board and a 1TB harddisk. When I tried to install windows the program tells me that it can write files or run the memory test. I installed windows with 6 gb of RAM and on the intel onboard video chip. When the installation was finished I added 2gb ram of the same A data model and the 8gb's configuration is working but the pc still has problems with the video driver installation after inserting the AMD video card and crashes sometimes. I tried the windows memory diagnostic tool and the result was that there is a hardware problem detected for the RAM. When running the same test for the 1st kit of A data RAM of 2x4 gbs, which is stable and I previously used it, with my 64 bit installation of Windows 7 ultimate, there were no problems shown. With the new kit of 4gbx3 A data RAM of the same kind (timings, frequency everything is identical) the test shows no errors. Only with the 2 together the error is shown. I want to ask why this is happening and can you by any chance give me a solution. A working bios or any kind of fix to boot the AMD catalyst video driver should be helpful.
If "with the new kit of 4gbx3 A data RAM of the same kind (timings, frequency everything is identical) the test shows no errors", I'd still recommend what I previously indicated (see above the thread), and add to that the advice of making sure the memory you are using is 1.5v., as the CPU itself is not tolerant to higher than 1.5v.; this is indicated here:
