I've seen this problem a few times on different systems where under Windows or Linux a system locks up and displays striping. In one of the systems we tested the memory using Memtest86+, the CPU in another motherboard (the first system was a then brand new BIOSTAR GeForce 6100-M9 motherboard - several years ago and the power supply (tested using a power supply tester that shows voltages, not just the LED lights) - all of which tested good. All the components were brand new and nothing was overclocked. Years later I saw the same problem on the same motherboard from BIOSTAR, but also recently on an MSI motherboard. When I first saw this problem I suspected that something might need to be reflowed on the motherboard. Typically I'd look at the motherboard last, but since I tested the RAM, CPU and PSU on another board and they tested good I figured it must be the motherboard. Has anyone else run into this diagonal striping lock ups and tracked it to something other than the motherboard?
Cheers and thanks.
