  1. Should be there but DFI decided to have it in the GENIE SETTINGS section. - MAC LAN = Disabled (Turns off nVidia NIC) - Marvell Giga LAN Control = Disabled (Turns off Marvell NIC)
  2. Hello, PowerNow was the old version found onthe Socket A CPU's. The newer version is called Cool N Quiet.
  3. If you have important data back it up then start overclocking.
  4. http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Mode...veNF6G-VSTA&s=n The manual says before you start overclocking, Do the following in the BIOS. Advanced settings >CPU Configuration Overclock mode = Set to [CPU, PCI, Async]. Then you can OC without it changing the PCI BUS. Have you done that?
  5. GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ).............200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01) Command per clock (CPC)..............Disabled = 2T, Enabled = 1T Cas latency (tCL)....................2 RAS to CAS delay (tRCD)..............3 Min RAS active time (tRAS)...........6 Row precharge time (tRP).............3 Row cycle time (tRC).................11 Row refresh cycle time(tRFC).........14 Row to Row delay (tRRD)..............2 Write recovery time (tWR)............2 Write to read delay (tWTR)...........AUTO Read to write delay (tRWT)...........AUTO Refresh period (tREF)................AUTO Write CAS latency (tWCL).............1 DRAM Bank Interleave.................Enabled DQS Skew Control.....................AUTO DQS Skew Value.......................0 DRAM Drive Strength..................AUTO DRAM Data Drive Strength.............AUTO Max Async Latency....................6ns Dram Response........................Normal Read Preamble Time...................5ns Idle Cycle Limit.....................AUTO Dynamic Counter......................AUTO R/W Queue Bypass.....................AUTO Bypass Max...........................AUTO 32 Byte Granularity..................AUTO Place the memory in the orange slots. Let memtest run for at least 6 hours.
  6. They should bring out a second edition, 64bit only. (Vista)
  7. Try using this, http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/200...el-Format-Tool/
  8. Hello, C) Is the CD drive on its own cable? Set it to cable select and place it on the far end of the cable. Blue end in board, CD drive on black end. This is a very serious note and if your chipset has overheated it may be faulty which would explain a lot of things. What temperature has it reached? A) Do you have another PS/2 keyboard to try? B,D) Sounds like a power problem but due to the chipset cooler and mixing memory modules it may be more than just that. How old are your power supplies And do you have all 4 power connectors plugged into the board? - 24pin ATX - 4pin +12v P4 - Molex under CPU socket - Molex on top chipset fan Just for now use only one memory stick in the top orange slot. Remove everything that is not required, - Sound card - Hard drives And see if things improve but if the chipset is faulty it may not.
  9. Are both of these cards new? Have you just upgraded from something else? Are you using the latest Vista drivers (32bit or 64bit)?
  10. Hello, Clear your CMOS for 10 minutes by moving the jumper to the clear position. After the 10 minutes move the jumper back to the save position. Place the new memory in the top orange slot. And power the PC. What happens now?
  11. No one will be able to give you a definite answer as it varies to much. Using value ram means you may not be able to reach as high as you would like to. You may need to use around 3.4v to get near 250Mhz @2-2-2-5. Due to the amount of heat you will need at least one 80mm fan blowing air over the memory modules. Burning process, start with as little voltage as possible and increase the memory frequency. When you get errors in memtest increase the voltage by 1 step. Run memtest for a long time 6-8 hours. If you still have errors increase the voltage by another step. Run memtest again for 6-8 hours. If you still get errors repeat the same procedure. Important note: If when you increase the voltage the number of total errors after the 6-8 hour run has not decreased then it may mean you have reached the limit. Increasing the voltage may solve this but then it may not which means you are at your limit. Some rough targets to reach, 230Mhz @3.2v-3.3v 240Mhz @3.3v-3.4v 250Mhz @ 3.4-3.5v Try not to go beyond 3.4v. I wouldn't recommend overclocking with this type of memory as you need to have a good setup, airflow, cooling and power supply, (You have a 400W PSU). Look here for memory settings.

  12. Advanced chipset features Memory hole for PCI for PCI MMIO = Enabled GENIE settings Memory voltage = 2.8v. GENIE settings >DRAM Configuration CPC = Disabled (Radodrill DDR1 memory voltage = )
  13. Yeah it will work. There is a sticky on the top with people running PCI 2.0 cards.
  14. To old for warranty? What is your next card going to be?
  15. Hello, Make sure that you have all 4 power connectors plugged into the board. - 24pin ATX - 4pin +12v P4 connector - Molex under the CPU socket - Molex on top the chipset fan Use 1 memory stick and place it in the top orange slot. Remove the gfx card/unplugged power connector Remove the X-Fi Remove all the IDE cables/SATA cables Remove all power cables from hard drives/CD drives Power the PC like that. What happens? (with the LEDs)
  16. Sig shows a 600W OCZ PSU? My last suggestion would be to lower the divider to 133 with it at 250 x11/x12and see if it gets you into windows. (memtest first).
  17. Let memtest run for a while with it on x11. If you get errors up the vcore to 1.45v. And memtest again. If it turns out to be ok increase the multiplier to x12 and run memtest.
  18. Hello, Disabled cool and quite. How hot does the CPU, chipset and PWM get? 2.8v is ok, good airflow in case helps. What prime95 test are you running, Blend?
  19. I think it is the heatsink. The temps on your old cpu are worse than what I got with an artic cooling silencer 64. (That has no heat pipes). My CPU at the time was a Winchester 3000+ OC to 2.25Ghz. The winchester core load wattage is roughly half that of your Dual core CPU. Do you have another heatsink to use, one that is certified for the X2 4200+?
  20. Yeah keep the voltage at 2.7v. Hopefully it is ok but when you get the time let memtest for longer.
  21. Hello, What was the idle and load temps with this cooler on your 3500+ CPU? And at what setting (High RPM or low RPM).
  22. Why 250FSB, Well because you are currently at 234, and 250 is only 16Mhz more. 250Mhz x 10 is less than your current OC but puts more stess on the core and memory controller. If the CPU does not pass this then it could mean two things. 1, CPU cannot handle 250FSB. 2, Needs more voltage. Next when you go to 250Mhz x 11 this will be closer to 2.8ghz. So it has matched your current OC but at 250FSB. Then at x12 you are seeing if it will run at 3Ghz. Increasing the multiplier is easier than increasing the FSB. Yes.
  23. If you set you fsb to 300 and memory to 166 that means your memory will try to run at 250Mhz (500DDR). At 250Mhz you may find that the vcore voltage needs to be increased. At 300Mhz you will need a lot more and you will start to go over the safe limit of 1.45v. (it may not even work) The point is to slowly work your way up. If you can't get 250Mhz stable then it will never work at 300Mhz.
  24. With the PC off. Clear the CMOS for 10 minutes by moving the CMOS jumper to the clear position. After the 10 minutes, move the jumper back to the save position. Power the PC. Just after you see it saying veriyfying DMI... Press F8. This should bring up the windows boot menu option screen. Choose enable VGA mode. Then boot into windows. Uninstall your old drivers and restart the pc. Now when you get into windows install the drivers again. Does this do anything? Important question. Did you reinstall windows + quick format the hard drive when you changed the motherboard? If not that is probably the reason why you are having issues. Note: Once windows has been installed you must install the chipset drivers first.
