  1. Thank you for the speedy reply. It freezes at the first post screen when it detects the drives(it actually detects all the drives, but then it freezes when it should move on to the irq tables). I've left it there for up to 30 min., but it still won't go beyond this screen if I have any sort of hard drive plugged in. This makes me believe that it has nothing to do with the OS, or even the hard drives.


    I just did what you suggested(and even had only this hard-drive plugged into the same cable, and nothing else IDE or SATA plugged in), but it still won't get past that post screen.


    It seems that I can plug in any amount of disc drives I want...even sata drives, and it will get past this screen, but if I plug in a hard-drive, it freezes here.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated

  2. Hello,

    I've had this system running flawlessly for about 5 or 6 months, and now it's freezing at post(to the stage of showing ide and sata drives).

    I've found that when I disconnect my hard drives it's able to boot(I can boot onto a cd), but if I have any sort of hard drive plugged in(IDE *or* SATA), it freezes at post again. I've now tried 4 different hard drives(two were SATA, and two were IDE), and I've even tried all the sata plugs on the motherboard, but no avail.


    I've just tried a 24hour proper CMOS clear, but am still having the same problems, and have even tried flashing a few different bios versions(still doing a 8 hour proper CMOS clear after each flash), but the different bios' haven't changed anything in the land of freezing at post.


    I've really grown to like this board, and would hate to leave it. I can still get a replacement/refund from NewEgg because they're out of ultra-d's, but I can't find any comparable s939 board that's still being made, so I'm willing to try alot to get this board working again, but if needed, I can also say goodbye.


    PS, I didn't change anything physical, or in the bios before this problem occurred. I shut my computer off for the night, and when I turned it back on, it was freezing at the post screen. after many hours of troubleshooting, I found that it was actually by connecting any sort of hard-drive that 'causes this problem.


    PS2, I forgot to add that I've also tried different cd and dvd drives, and that those work perfectly in it, while it's only the hard-drives that cause problems for me.


    Any help would be appreciated,


  3. Hello, I have what I believe to be the exact same problem (correct me if I'm wrong, and should create a new thread), but I think we might be able to help each other based on the troubleshooting I've been able to do with this issue.

    It also freezes for me before it finishes posting, but if i unplug my sata drives from the motherboard, then it is able to get past that post screen...so far I haven't found a way around this, other than not using sata on this system which is not a option. It has been working for ~5 months straight without issues, and out of nowhere this occured.


    I'm also running a Seagate sata harddrive, so you might want to try running it w/o any sort of harddrive to see what it does.


    I've also tried flashing every bios version that's on Tmod's disc, but no 'avail.


    Please message back if what i've found out seems to help you at all.


    EDIT: it seems that this actually occurs for me when any sort of harddrive is connected. You may want to try booting without harddrives conencted to see if that makes it post(if it does, then we're in the same boat here).


  4. I'm currently running Oscar Wu's 702-3 bios(i'm running an Opty 165 and TCCD ram), and was trying to find good sites that have more modded bios'.


    I've found this one: http://dfi.pajper.net, but it only has Oscar Wu bios versions, and have been looking for other options.


    I know the saying "don't fix it if it isn't broken", but haven't been able to go over 345mhz stable on the FSB, even with the multiplier down, so I know it's the board(not chip or ram).


    Any bios' that you would recommend for higher fsb's(or just diff. mods), and places to get them?


    Thank You,


  5. This is my first FS thread, so please be easy on me...

    I recently RMA'd my eVGA 7900GT because of artefacting, and bought an XFX 7900GT to use in SLi.

    The card that eVGA sent back was a 512mb 7900GTO, which i decided to go with single-card, instead of SLi.


    I'm now selling my XFX 7900GT, which currently has a Zalman VF900CU w/ ramsinks on it(doesn't void the warranty). This card still has approximately 3/4 of a year of warranty left on it(will soon post exact date bought).

    I will also send the stock XFX cooler, but can ship with either cooler on it.

    This card is 165$ w/ the zalman VF900CU, plus 10$ shipping anywhere in any of the main 48 states of the US. -Sold to Splave

    Pictures of the Card:










    I have another Zalman VF900CU that's *still in the box*! I've opened it(thinking I would use it). This box still has everything neatly packaged inside, including a fan controller, and blue zalman ramsinks

    I'm selling this for 35$, plus 7$ shipping in any of the main 48 states of the US.

    The bottom of this cooler is completely mirrored with how smooth it is.

    I would recommend this cooler to anyone.


    I also have a Maze4GPU cooler with an acetel top, with X mounting hardware, and 2 whole mounting hardware, for only 30$, plus 7$ shipping in any of the 48 main states.

    This cooler HAS been used, but is completely clean, and I will clean again before I ship it to make sure that it's in pristine condition for the new user, and no work would need to be done to prepare it.

    has 1/2" high flow fittings(old good seal kind)


    I will use PayPal, so please do not worry of your safety.


    Also, if needed, I can put the 7900GT back in, and test temps with the stock cooler, and with the VF900CU.


    Edit:After looking at other cards, I'm now selling my 512mb eVGA 7900GTO.

    This card runs perfectly @ 7900GTX speeds, and to anyone that doesn't know, this card's actually a 7900GTX.

    Luckily, the ram for this card's 1.1ns, instead of 1.4ns, and it runs perfectly at the speeds in my sig.

    I'm selling this card for 285$ shipped anywhere in the main 48 US states.

    -will soon post pictures




  6. Thank You TheFabe,

    That post I made was a very quick post, as I was still very excited I even got my computer to get past 2 led's!

    btw, TheFabe, if you're wondering what the problem was(i had a previous post with a 2 led problem), a stud was stuck behind my motherboard, that was shorting it out, and causing it to stay at 2 led's.


    Thank You for all your help, DFI-street is the best!
