  1. Generally what is the safe voltage level for RAM, chipset and cpu? I have UT NF3 250GB with Athlon 64 2800+ overclocked to 2.4 GHz. I'm thinking about raising the voltages to RAM, chipset, and cpu, and wanted to make sure what the maximum level is for these components before I damage anything. thanks!
  2. No, I'm using the XP version: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_winxp_5.10 What does Min Savings do??
  3. ExRoadie, I just looked at the Power Management option in the Bios, and it is set to "User Defined" (Only options were User Defined, Min Savings, Max Savings). Is it suppose to have an OFF option? or did I look at the wrong setting?
  4. Thanks for your reply.... But that didn't work either.... it just says that windows did not find the necessary software. I've tried making it look at every folder in the nvidia driver folder, but didn't find anything.... me very sad...
  5. When I had Windows XP SP2 installed, I had no problems, and all the drivers were installed for all devices under Device Manager (no yellow question marks). I installed Windows Server 2003, and now there is one yellow question mark under Device Manager (Other Devices --> Unknown Device). I have installed all nForce drivers, and everything, but cannot figure out what this is. I don't have any external devices or peripherals attached that do not have proper drivers installed and detected. When I double click on this Unknown Device, it says location is PCI Bus, and under Details tab, Property: Device Instance Id Value: ACPIPNP05103&13C0B0C5&0 Since I do not know what this device is, I cannot even begin to search for the driver for it. I guess I could just use the computer, but I don't like to have any unknowns or yellow question marks.... Has anyone who has installed windows server 2003 on this board have had this problem? Any ideas on what this "unknown device" would be? Thank you!!
  6. Oh ok. so it is not suppose to stay enabled. About the standby/hibernate, I am having trouble with standby automatically resuming in about 5 seconds after when i have something connected to internet (such as msn messenger), and once it does stay standby, i cannot get it to resume from my keyboard with keyboard hotkey power on option enabled in bios. and I read the following on DFI FAQ: ================================ 30002190 Why S3 is malfunctioned after flashing BIOS? 2004/10/26 Answer : If added an argument ¢®¡×/f¢®¡§ when BIOS is being flashed, NVIDIA LAN MAC Address will be cleared away. ¢®¡×Stand by¢®¡§ will be malfunctioned, if the LAN cable is connected to motherboard. There are two ways to solve the problem. 1. Unplugged cable. 2. Key in MAC Address: Genie BIOS Setting >> Machine MAC (NV) Address (enabled) >> MAC (NV) Address Input, and then key in 12 digits NVIDIA LAN MAC Address, the address is marked in a little white label on AGP slot. ==================================
  7. I just updated to the latest bios, 10/15, and the MAC address still won't stay enabled/saved in the bios.... Any way to correct this issue? I think this might have an effect in me having problems with standby....
  8. Well, I can't really test whether inputting the MAC address in the bios will solve this problem for me cause everytime I enter the MAC address, Save, and exit the bios, and if i go back in, its disabled again. Tried with 9/14 bios and 10/5 beta bios. it just disables itself everytime.

  10. I'm gonna go home and try inputting the MAC address of the LAN in the Bios setting. I think I read something about StandBy not working correctly without it on DFI website FAQ. Hopefully this will fix everything.
  11. Thanks SirFergy, I think that solved the computer going into Stand By.... I am still having problems going into hibernation though......it hangs with two bars left when it says "windows is hibernating"... Thanks again.
  12. Ok. My computer works flawlessly, except I have problems with Stand-By and Hibernation. I have tried S3 or S1+S3 in Bios, and have tried all options under power on by mouse, keyboard, keyboard hotkeys. I currently have it set up as power on by keyboard hotkey, set up as CTL+F1. Problem with StandBy: 1). Hit standy, and it will go into standby fine, turning eveything off. 5~10 seconds later, it will resume from Standby by itself. I made sure i did not move the mouse, or hit any keys on keyboard (bios is set to keyboard Hotkey combo anyways, so moving the mouse shouldn't matter. 2) If I restart, and do standby as soon as it is boot up, it will go into standby, and stay standby. 3) Everytime I try to resume from standby, nothing works. My keyboard hotkey will not resume it. My power button will not resume it. My reset button will not resume it. Problems with Hibernation: 1) Same as 1) above. (though I can't really remember, cause i've been messing with StandBy for a while....but i do think it resumed from hibernation by itself couple seconds after also 2) When resuming from hibernation, it will hang getting into windows right after "resuming windows" screen and scroll. Has anyone with this board (LanParty UT NF3 250Gb) tried using Standby or hibernation and had any problems?? If it is not the board or bios, and if it is one of my parts or settings, I have no clue which one it is..... My detailed specs (listing only the setting I have changed. Rest is either default or Auto): Bios 10/5 by Oskar A64 2800+ @ 2.4GHz (267HTT, x3 LDT/FSB, x9 CPU/FSB) CPU Volt: 1.55V Prime95 stable for 14hours RAM: 2 x 512MB Geil Value Ram in slots 1 and 2 2T, 2.5-3-3-7, 166(5/6) divider (218MHz, DDR436) RAM Volt: 2.7V memtest no errors 10 passes Maxtor 60GB SATA on port 3 (OS drive) 2x Maxtor 60GB IDE (one on each IDE port) RAID 0 Promise ATA133 PCI card with dvd+-RW and CD-RW. Enermax Noisetaker 420W. Visiontek Geforce4 Ti4400 128MB. I think that's everything I have in there. It runs perfect, except when I try to do standby or hibernate.... anyone?? Thank you!
  13. Sorry, I meant to write upto 285 HTT, haha..... but i think i did boot up once close to 300....
  14. Ok, thanks to you guys, i think i might have a successful overclock. I am running Prime95 torture test right now, at the below motherboard settings: HTT: 267 LDT/FSB: x3.0 CPU/FSB: x9.0 CPU volt: 1.5V DRAM volt: 2.6V Freq: 166(5/6) CPC: disabled (2T) 2.5 - 3 - 3 - 7 According to SiSoft Sandra, my current speeds are: CPU: 2.40 GHz FSB/HTT: 2 x 801MHz (1602 MHz data rate) RAM: 2 x 218MHz (436MHz data rate) With memory down to 100(1/2), I could boot into windows all the way upto 385 HTT, but I couldn't get my memory to work at around 400Mhz... at around 278 HTT, and Memory around 440, i think it was okay, but i had to raise the cpu voltage, and I don't feel comfortable raising the voltage to like 1.65, since I saw the temp go up a bit. So for right now, I think 2.4GHz at 1.5V, and this "value" ram at almost 440MHz, will make me happy.......if everything is stable....hopefully Prime won't crap out. Feel free to make suggestions if i did something wrong or stupid with ram timings and stuff. Thanks again
