Hi Friends ,

I recently downloaded and installed Intel Active Monitor ( ver 1.2.1 ) .I am facing the following problem since installation:

1. Whenever I boot the system cold , I find the Monitor giving alert for one of the power zones crossing the threshold limits . One of the Voltmeters( not the CPU Core OR the CPU I/O ) indicate a voltage of 0.63 V as against the recommended(green) value of 11 - 13 volts.

2. However , on restarting , the sys behaves totally normal and there are no problems.

3. I want to know if anything appears seriously wrong with my sys and what action should be taken from my side in order to rectify .Or should i continue to restart , after every cold boot,to restore normalcy.

2. I have Intel® Desktop Board D850MV based system with following details:

Processor Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 1700MHz
Bus speed 400 MHz
L1 cache Data Cache 8KB, Execution Trace Cache 12K Micro-ops
L2 cache Advanced Transfer Cache 256 KB
Form factor ZIF Socket
Stepping 10

Physical memory 128 MB RAM
Memory speed PC600
Memory type Other, RAMBUS
Form factor RIMM
BIOS date 03/28/2002
BIOS size 512 KB
BIOS version P10 (MV85010A.86A.0025.P10.0203282158)

Can any one help.Thanks in advance.

Well, i dont belive its a system problem but a monitor problem.....maybe it was just horribly bad timing that you installed the program

Have you tried uninstalling it?

That is great.

I uninstalled the Monitor,first installed the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility and then reinstalled a freshly unloaded copy of the monitor and bingo-the problem has disappeared.

Thanks a lot pal. :thumbsup:
