I investigated some optional motherboard exchange, because I have a
smal problem with my M4A78-E motherboard and 'supsend to ram', S3,
with windows 7 64. Over time S3 has stopped working. It may generate
memory dump. At first I thought it was a worn-out PSU. Bought a 650
watt Corsair PSU. It did not help. I then thought of exchanging
motherboard to m4a89GTD and buy ddr3 ram. But I tried to boot on a
live-linux-DVD. Then S3 works perfectly. So the problem is my windows
I therefore keep my m4a78-e and 8 Gb ddr2 ram. I probably make another
installation of OS. I don't know how the problem with S3 arised. It
was not the SP1 for windows 7. But probably some of the brandnew
browsers installation: IE9, firefox and chrome.
I use a 60 Gb corsair force SSD for OS to speed up things.
