I have an old computer that worked fine for me for 3 years, then i decided to move that one to my work place and leave it there and get myself a new PC.
I did a mistake when i bought the old computer (gonna call it PC from now to keep it simple!) and the RAM was a low voltage one that didnt work pretty well with my Motherboard, at first it didnt want to start up at all, then someone was able to help me out and figured that the RAM "HAD" to be overclocked for the computer to work (i dont remember if the OCing is to increase the voltage or the Frequency), if not it doesnt start up.
The only way to start up the PC is to insert only 1 RAM, then OC and then insert the second one.
Well the PC lived for 3 years as i said without a problem, i would store it for a couple of month when i was on vacation and then reinstall it in its place and it would work fine.
Now when i moved it to the work place, for some reason it doesnt want to work O_o . when i check the BIOS i see that the RAM has been reset to default and is no longer overclocked. why did this happen? is there a way for me to keep the RAM overclocked and not have it reset? as i need the PC to be reliable as it was back then when used in the workplace :S .
The system specs for the PC are:
RAM: OCZ Platinum Low Voltage Dual Channel Kit 2 x 2GB PC2 8500 DDR2
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD162GJ 160GB
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212
MOBO: Asus P5N-T Deluxe nForce 780i SLI SATA2 RAID
CPU: Inter Core 2 Duo E8400 3.00GHz 1333 6MB
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular
GPU: XFX GTS250 512MB DDR3 2xDVI
I built this PC myself
I will do my best to supply any other info needed.
Thank you for your time and help.
