  1. Yeah, I've had this SLI-D when DFI first put it out that many years ago. For this period, I've been running my A64 3000+ at 2.7G (9x300) @ 1.475v; RAM on 2.7v with 2-2-5-2. My GPU has always been the sucky 6600GT not overclocked. And I suppose my current PSU did well to keep up for this long? And yes, the searches I've done with this forum generally pointed out the faulty PSUs. It's a shame because I live in a rural area and access to good PSU is hard for me. And if everyone all agree on the problem being with the PSU, I guess it's time to update my rig to a Intel quad core. Afterall, I have had a good run with this NF4... Thanks to you all that helped.
  2. Yeah, removed battery and unplugged PSU cord during that 24 hours. Battery is near new. Just read a post by davidhammock200 "PSU Brands to Avoid!" http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29248 and found my ultra x-connect in there... I have no recommended PSU to burrow. So I guess I'm looking at a new one. Strange thing is that my set-up has been fine for the last 4 or 5 years on the ultra...
  3. yeah, removed the battery and unplugged the PSU duing that 24 hour clear. Battery is near new. And I just read the "PSU Brands to Avoid!" post from davidhammock200 http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29248 Saw my Ultra X-Connect listed there... I guess I need a new PSU? How come my set-up ran problem free for the last 4 or 5 years then... ><
  4. Hi all, new to the forum. Thanks in advance for any input and ideas. A few days ago, computer randomly shut down (after running ok for years on the same set-up). Rebooted and the last LED remained on and the computer hanged at the DFI Logo. Can't enter BIOS. Keyboard won't respond. Tried extended CMOS clear for 24 hours. Minimal set up with all 4 power connectors in. Still no cookie. Can anyone help? Please?:sad:
  5. Hi, new to the forum also. Did exactly the same thing as you Specialistx yesterday. Formated to Win XP SP2, updated BIOS to 2006/04/06 using winflash (yes, I know better now), went to 100% and rebooted to a blank screen, won't POST. Only difference is that my 4 LEDs lights up during power up, then 2 remains on. Tried extended clear CMOS last night with no luck. I've resorted to buying new BIOS chips from bios-repair.co.uk and I'm going to buy a RD1 BIOS Savior later this week. I wonder if the problem originated because of the different BIOS chips? My original BIOS chip is SST SST49LF004B, whereas the newest BIOS upgrade is for SST SST49LF040B. I hope this info helps you. Any further thoughts radodrill?
  6. Hi, new to the forum also. Did exactly the same thing yesterday as you Specialistx. EXACTLY the same procedure (with winflash and went to 100%, rebooted to a blank screen, won't POST). The only difference is that my 4 LEDs lights up during power up and then only 2 remains on. Tried extended clear CMOS yesterday with no luck, still wouldn't POST. I think, the problem is this version of BIOS (2006/04/06) says it's for SST 49LF040B. However, my BIOS chip is SST 49LF004B, I wonder if yours is also this one. Anyway, I resorted to getting new BIOS chips. Bought 2 from bios-repair.co.uk and going to buy RD1 BIOS Savior later this week. ps.. I wonder if buy the SST 49LF040B chips, would they work on my board...
