MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570) BSOD problems grrr

I recently purchased this board and although it is an awesome product, I'm having a problem with BSOD's when I play a game for a certain period of time
MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR  (7.6 BIOS)
AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton
512MB (2x256MB) Samsung PC-2700 DDR memory (2.5-3-3-6 1T)
MSI 128MB GeForce4 Ti 4200 (4X AGP)
NVIDIA nForce on-board sound
Western Digital 80GB drive w/ 8MB cache
MSI X48 CD/CD-RW/DVD combo drive
Windows XP Professional SP1
Turbolink 420watt (came with case)
+3.3V is 28A
+5V is 40A
+12V is 18A
So what happens is I get a STOP error during the game that shows the kmixer.sys driver as the culprit. Sometimes it's accompanied by PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA too. I read somewhere that kmixer.sys has to do with windows audio and that it's a 3rd party driver issue or a memory issue. I'm using the latest NVIDIA 3.13 nForce platform drivers. I ran Memtest lastnight for 12 hours straight and 0 errors. I'm thinking the memory may not be compatible with the board nor dual channel, is this possible? I have also tried several different drivers for both video and chipset including MSI's own and I still get the kmixer.sys BSOD when playing games. My previous motherboard was an MSI KT3 Ultra2-R (MS-6380E) which I had no issues with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
I just tried to play a game with audio disabled and it crashed this time with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with nv4_mini.sys as the problem. My IRQ table shows some sharing, but device manager shows no conflicts.

Ok I tried running the DTM-CB3 module which is nForce2 approved at 3-4-4-11 2T timings and experienced the same result even at 2.6 and 2.7v. I tried both in dual-channel and same thing happened. However, I downloaded a program called Prime95 and ran the CPU torture test and the system returned a fatal error within the first few minutes. CPU Temp was at 57 C and the warning beep (set to 60C though) sounded intermittentley which is strange. I let it cool down then ran the torture test again and about 5min. later the system either seized completely or the program crashed. IE has also crashed randomly on me. I did this several times, before trying a different FSB/DRAM ratio. So I left the system at 200 FSB and used a 6:5 ratio so my memory was running at DDR333 and processor was a 3200+. I ran Prime95 again and the system locked up just as it did the other times.  So after I did this a few times with consistent results. I went back and set the FSB to 166 and tried a 5:6 ratio so the memory was DDR400 and processor was the normal 2800+. I ran it again and to my suprise it passed all the tests and after an hour of this, I tried a game and that was perfectly fine as well. I checked the temps and CPU was only 45 C this time. So I'm thinking the processor can't handle anything above 50C or it's just plain overheating. I ordered a Thermaltake Silent Boost HSF today which is tested up to 3400+ so this should fix my problem. If not, then I'm going to replace the memory with a 512MB Geil PC3200 golden dragon dual-channel kit.

    I pretty much get the same error as SiliconMan (The computer that was tried to connect did not respond...)
    I ended up giving up on it for the time being, just using my SMC NIC. Would be quite interested in finding out what the problem is though.
    Anyone else in the same boat?
        Your problem is not the same, SiliconMan is trying to connect with a dial-up modem not LAN. Your problem sounds like it may be configuration, do a search on this post, I'm sure you will find people with onboard LAN troubles. It's hard to troubleshoot though since you didn't provide any info about your computer. Good Luck  

  • Msi k7n2 delta ilsr problem

    hi i have this configuration on my pc:

    i have 2 problems : the first one is that sometimes windows display me a blue screen with certain problem related to ati2dg.dll i think that problem is beacause the video card so i decided to update the bios , in the live update page from msi says that the bios 7.6 fix a bug with ati vga cards but after flashing and updating to bios v7.6 that blue screen with the same error still appearing so i dont know what else to do to solve the problem and the second one is that when i start any game or make the processor to work a little mostly related with video stuff the case speaker start to beep and the pc lags until he restarts with no reason i really dont know why if u can help me thank you

    In the BIOS try setting the AGP to 4X and disable Sidebanding. Then set the AGP Apeture to 256. See if that helps.
    Make sure you are running the lastest   nVidia nForce Drivers and the latest ATI Catalyst Drivers
    Take Care,
    P.S. There is still a possibility that the Kingston RAM is the problem.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR Memory problems

    I'm trying to burn in a system in a 50 deg C (122 deg F) room for a minimum of 12 hours.  The main system components are as follows:
    Motherboard:  MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR
    CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2800+
    Memory: 2x512 OCZ PC3200 EL
    My problem is that the burn-in software continues to freeze up during the memory test.  I've already contacted the software manufacturers and the software is stable.  It's a problem with the way the motherboard handles the memory.  I've tried putting the memory in dual channel configuration and changing the timing settings in the BIOS.  The SPD settings are 2.5-3-3-7.  Right now I have them at 3-4-3-8.  It's a lot more stable than it was under the default settings but it still freezes up sometime after 7 hours.  Unfortunately, I wasn't around when it froze so I don't know exactly how long it lasted.  I can say that after 7 hours, it wasn't showing any slowdown in performance.  If anyone could think of anything else I might be able to do to get the system stable, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  The CPU FSB is 200, so it's already matched up there.  And we have a ton of fans already.  There are two in the front, 4 inside and 1 on the back.  It's a custom case, 2u high.  The power supply is oversized and more than adequate to provide the required power.  I have four of these units running right now.  Two with 2x512 sticks and two with 1x1024 sticks.  For each combination, the memory clock speed for one is 166 and 200 for the other.  I have been loosening up the memory timings trying to get the system stable, but it still isn't.  If the power supply is good, and I'm unable to cool the system anymore due to limititions within the case, is there anything you can think of to stabilize the system.  Maybe other settings in the BIOS or suggestions on how to go about getting good timings for the memory.  Thanks.

  • Strange phantom restarts on MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Just wanted to see if I could get opinions on this. My MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR mobo runs real nice now, but still, on occasion, very rare and intermittently, it will just restart. Not likely a heat issue, as the temps are nice and low. Also, not just happenning when I'm playing a game or anything strenuous. Did it once while checking email, once during install of an MS Office program, and once during a game. Could it be my old Gforce 2 MX 200 video card, as the picture sometimes gets wavy (like fine waves on an ocean), and the old computer it was in did similar things, or is it common with this mobo.

    1026 MB Kingston DDR RAM (2x512 Dual)
    Gforce 2 MX 200 AGP 4x
    WD 60 GB 7200 RPM

    I had errors on test 4 not 5 with Winbond 2-512 Dual Channel called Hardcore Cooling and they said that getting errors with memtest86 may not mean that the ram is defective, it may not be compatible with the memory comtrol and they had me RMA it back. I also was not able to run the ram stable at there advertized rate of 6 2 2 2 it was only stable at 8 3 3 2.5
    I replaced it with OCZ after talking to there Tech support people about compatiblety problems with the Nvidia chipset. Sense I installed the OCZ I only had one ram reboot and when I checked I was running the voltage at 2.5 and OCZ said that I should be running at 2.6. They also said that I could run it up to 2.8 with no worry.
    Look on manufactor web site to see what ram timing yours should be running at and what voltage, Auto setting in Bios is not always the best setting.
    If it still not stable at manufactor spec than I'd talk to who ever you bought it from about replacing it or refund and buy something thats on the Nvidia compatible list.
    Most ram manufactors have a list of motherboards that there ram will work on but sometimes the newer boards like K7N2 or not listed yet as still working that out.

  • Data corruption on MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Hi all,
    Just got my new MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR up and running.
    Got some issues with the memory running at 200mhz while the Barton core of my Athlon Xp 2600+ was running 166mhz, this had to be 1:1 (thx forum  )
    While running the default bios settings with cpu/mem at 166/166 fsb everything is stable as hell. I have been running Prime95 for 2 days now and using the system for dvd ripping/encoding, UT2004 gaming etc.
    Then the overclocking began   I'm using the standard AMD cooler that came with my boxed Xp2600+ so I didn't expect an FSB of 200mhz.
    I stopped at an FSB of 190mhz...been crunching Prime95 for 18 hours now and again very stable.
    Now comes the problem : Sometimes I get crc errors when installing a game or decrypting a dvd!! But how can this be? Prime95 is stable at this 190fsb overclock.
    When using an FSB of 166mhz no data corruption or crc errors.
    What can this be? It's not the cables because they're all the same as in my old setup which was running (ahum...walking) stable. PCI/AGP speeds are locked when overclocking...
    Only thing I can think of is the power supply. I've read in a warning post from Bas that the Q-Tec 550w psu I have is crap. So my guess is PSU, but maybe it's something else I'm forgetting...Any suggestions??
    The stupid thing is when I'm not overclocking I don't have the data corruption problems, but I'm still using the same crappy Q-Tec 550w PSU.

    Hmmm, that's curious. On the MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR product page Kingston memory is recommended  
    Ok, did a Memtest86 v1.11 pass at cpu/dimm 166/166 - no problems whatsoever. I think using Prime95 would have revealed memory problems...but will do another pass with cpu/dimm at 190/190.
    Can overclocking affect the Promise Raid Controller?? It should be locked like the PCI/AGP but who knows...
    Well, I still have to replace my PSU but I'm not 100% sure that this is the problem. What PSU would you recommend? ...and I'm also thinking about replacing the standard CPU cooler, any advice is welcome

  • MSI K8T Neo2 F vs. MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Hi there !
    I have an amd Athlon XP 3200+ overheating problem, and contacted the technical support of the shop where the processor and CPU was coming from.
    Since they do not have any XP 3200+ to replace mine, they propose me to replace fro free :
    - the XP 3200+ by an AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    - my actual MSI K7N2 delta ILSR by an MSI K8T Neo2 F
    ... and this for free.
    Since I do not know this new motherboard that has been proposed, I'd like to have advice on if this is a good deal ?!?
    My actual system has :
    - an Aluminium case with 2x 12cm FAN's
    - 2 IDE hard drives
    - 1 SATA hard drive
    - TWINX Corsair XMS 2x256MB PC 3200L (Extreme low latency)
    - an AGP 8x video card
    - An Antec True Power 480W.
    will the new motherboard fit with this configuration?
    Many thanks for your input !

    Not really, unless you really want to oc your cpu. The K8T boards aren't that good in OC-ing. But still, some is possible and you'll be sure that the board is as steady as a rock.
    For a moment I thought you were talking about a Neo board ... but I just saw it's a Neo2. That means Socket 939 -> dual channel RAM.
    The only risk you have now, is that your RAM won't work in dual channel with the CPU. But that's not really a board-problem, more a CPU/RAM-controller related problem. But then, it's still a great offer and chances are good that it will work. If you run into any trouble, RAM-related, just flash bios to version 1.9 and you will probably be just fine.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Dead? Help!

    Hey all,
    Well, the other day I was on my computer playing a game when my mobo fan started making an odd noise (as if switching rpm), so I took off the side of my case and took a look inside. Everything seemed to be functioning properly, then I switched my cpu fan speed via the pci slot speed control. As I switched from High-Medium-Low, I noticed that the fan actually slowed to the point where I could see the blades spinning, at least for a second or so. I found that rather odd, seeing as how I've never seen a fan (especially a cpu fan) slow to the point that I could see the blades spin. Anyway, a couple of hours later, I shut down and went to sleep.
    The next day I had my comp on for about maybe 30mins to an hour or so when suddenly I heard an alarm from the computer speaker, so I was like, ":censored:?" since I had never heard it before. It was evidently the temperature warning, which I had set to 70C. So I shut down within 15 seconds and opened up the side of my case.
    I noticed that the cpu fan wasn't moving at all (usually I'd open the case in time to see the spin-down). So I turned the computer back on and the fan didn't budge, so I immediately powered down, assuming that the CPU Fan had died. Later on, I hooked the fan itself up to a free power cord in my sister's computer and booted up, along with the speed controller, flipping from medium to high to low without any problems.
    I then did screwed the fan back to the heatsink in my comp and booted up. I went into the bios an noticed that the rpm was 8k, which is way too high for my fan (normally 5k). So i began switching from high, medium, to low once again, then I saw that the rpm reader in the bios went to 0. So I looked back in the side of my case and saw that the cpu fan was once again dead. At this point I concluded that it was the fan and was about to order the Volcano 12.
    A day later I placed the fan inside my sister's computer on a free cord, yet again, and yet again, it worked fine.
    I once again put it in my computer to test and this time it worked fine, even while switching between speeds. Unfortunately, I then noticed that the mobo fan was not moving, then began to move.
    Well, I'm guessing now that it's simply the motherboard that has a short, since both the motherboard fan as well as the cpu fan have randomly been dying the past few days. The motherboard fan; however, has switched rpm many times in the past from 5k to 3k.
    It could also be a PSU problem, but I have Antec 400watt psu and it's been working fine for the past 2 years, so I doubt it. I've had the motherboard for a little over a year. I upgraded my cpu from 2200+ to 3000+ in July. That's also when I bought the cpu fan. The motherboard fan began fluctuating in rpm noticeably back in April or May of this year.
    Yesterday, I used the computer again and had it on for about 2 hours or so and I had speedfan monitoring the temps and the rpm. The temps stayed relatively stable: 48 cpu, 44 mobo.
    But alas, the RPMs were totally [blame me for the swear filter] up. At one point, both the mobo and cpu fan speeds were reading 0, even though both continued to spin within the case and the temps remained the same. Then after 30mins or so, they cpu fan began reading again at 40,000-42,000rpm, which is obviously incorrect, seeing as the fan is rated for around 5k. I got/get the same readings in the bios, both fans reading at 0rpm as they continue to physically spin.
    Also, during a number of times that I've started up the comp within the past few days, the motherboard northbridge fan wasn't spinning at all and didn't begin to until a few minutes into my windows session.
    Also, I took out the NB fan and noticed a slight crack in the back of it.
    I was considering simply just buying the Volcano 12 and the MSI K7N2 Delta2 Platinum rather than RMAing the mobo. Then perhaps an Antec 550W psu, if necessary.
    Any ideas what I should replace and in which order? And has anybody else encountered any similar problems with this mobo (at least with the mobo rpm, which has been a prob for about 6months on and off)?
    I bought the mobo along with a 2200+ in July of 2003. I upgraded the ram from 256 to 512 in April 2004 (which is around the time I started hearing rpm probs with the mobo fan) and I upgraded the cpu in July of 2004
    Many Thanks!

    Could be a fluctuating PSU that's breaking down power to the MB. You have a whole lot of components dragging that PSU down. With what you have in your rig I would run either an Antec or Enermax 550W. Best way to be sure is to borrow a PSU or buy one from a store with a good return policy so that you can return it if indeed it turns out to be the MB. If I don't have your board here on my bench to test the only thing I can suggest to you is to swap out components unfortunately.

  • [MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR] Trouble

    I have some serious trouble with my pc, my system specs are:
    -Unlocked Amd 2400+ (AXDA2400DKV3C from August 21, 2002)
    -Msi K7N2 delta-ilsr
    -Palit GeForce FX5900XT
    -Std. 512mb pc2700
    -Std. 512mb pc3200
    -More stuff
    The problem is that I can't change the multiplier. If I change the multiplier from 15x (standart) to for example 13x, the system won't boot. Than I have to put a jumper at the 100mhz fsb setting, then I must change the multiplier back to by h/w & save the settings. So I am only able to change the fsb, but not the multiplier
    Anywone who know's a solution for this problem?

    Sounds like to me it is locked because you can change the fsb and not the multiplier.
    Because the processor is from 2002, and then it's unlocked

  • MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Wont boot up (no display no bios)

    i bought a AMD Athlon XP 3200+ & MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR.

    i did succed to go into bios only once, after lots of resets and shutdowns and bios clear (after ouers)
    i choosed in the bios: load bios defaults, and thats it. i hoped it starts up but nothing.
    i did all testing i know (checked all pins, cables, clear cmos...all, you name it)
    all parts are brand new (except motherbord. it's seconds hand from eBay. i've bean talled that it works fine)
    i also e-mailed MSI support that question. (2 days ago. no answer yet)
    oh...and i have a pci POST diagnostic card and its 7seg display don't shows any numbers, only when once i succed to get into bios. i don't have the msi original D-Breket addon diag.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR - Noisy Grinding Motherboard Fan

    The Motherboard Fan on my MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR has started to make a terrible grinding noise and I was hoping someone could offer some help on how to replace it.
    Some of the questions I have are -
     + Is the Motherboard Fan screwed on or glued on?
     + Could I replace it with a suitable heatsink (no fan)?*
     + If it is glued on, what is the best way to remove it?
     + If it is glued on, could I just unplug it and stick a new fan on top of the existing one?
     + Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do to fix it?
    * I was looking at a Zalman Motherboard Heatsink from
    Thanks in advance, Jason.

    It's not a good idea to add oil to any parts in a computer.  

  • MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR and Serial ATA Drive

    I've got a very strange problem....
    Yesterday i have installed my new motherboard (MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR) but i have a problem with the SATA feature.
    I've got two drives : one 40GB ATA (Western Digital) and one 160GB SATA also from Western Digital.
    My SATA drive is recognized by the FastTrak BIOS (v2) but i'm unable to reinstall Windows XP Professional (with SP2 Slipstreamed) because Windows Setup didn't recognize the SATA disk. I have loaded the Promise Serial ATA Drivers at the begin of the installation (F6)...
    I have also tried 2 different versions of the Promise SATA Drivers; the one that cames with my motherboard CD, and the most recent from the MSI website. But with both drivers the same result. How can i get my Serial ATA Harddisk get work with this motherboard?
    Any help will be appreciated. 
    PS : My specifications are the following:
    MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR (Rev. 7.4)
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+
    2x 256MB Kingston PC3200 Dual Channel
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb (R360)
    Western Digital 40GB ATA
    Western Digital 160GB SATA

    Thanks for your reply Richard,
    My motherboard didn't came with a floppy (I have bought an bulk version..) I have created a SATA floppy by myself. (I have got the drivers from the motherboard cd..) These drivers are also good, right?
    Which type of RAID Array should i create? Because i have only one SATA drive.....
    I think the "auto" feature is the easiest way?
