  1. Hello, If the pc has been off for a long time eg 8 hours/over night, When you turn on and go into the bios what does it show the temp as? If it starts low and gradually gets to 70DC it may be something else.
  2. Hello, What happens if you leave it enabled and reinstall vista x64?
  3. ITE smart guardian, http://www.dfi.com.tw/Upload/Driver/ITE_SG_050123.zip You need to get a better power supply before it blows up, is it even a 24pin ATX v2.2 one? That may explain your 2.8v issue as this should work without issues on any board/memory module. I would recommend at least 500W, they are much cheaper now but it must be from a reputable brand such as OCZ, Tagan, Corsair, FSP, Hiper, Antec.
  4. If you have a USB flash drive see if the BIOS detects it during start up. Should see it just before the IRQ table, where is shows the SMART disabled/enabled for your hard drives. If not it's probably is dead.
  5. Hello, When you changed the CPU cooler did the 4 LEDs happen straight away? That could mean the CPU is faulty. All 4 power connectors plugged into the board? What made you decide to change the CPU cooler?
  6. Hello, If the memory is faulty then there is nothing that can be done to cure this, so your only option would be to have it replaced under warranty. The BIOS allows you to change all the memory timings, go to the Genie Settings section >DRAM configuration.
  7. He is not quite right about that, when the first dual rail power supplies came out there were a few issues with how the power was distributed. If too much was taken from one rail it would cause problems but that was for any pc not just a dual core cpu. Now things are different and this is no longer an issue.
  8. These things, http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?Module...&C=SO&U=strat15 Some are powered hubs, they come with a mains adaptor so that anything you plug in there does not draw power from your PC ports.
  9. Do you have the front audio wired to the module? This can prevent the rear ports for working properly. Uninstall all the drivers, and use nvidia's version from the 6.66 driver package.
  10. Hello, 1 Red led = VGA issue. If you have plugged the power connector and have it running in the top PCI-E slot at x16 then it is probably faulty. Is it possible to test in another PC?
  11. NP, feel free to stick around and check out the other sections.
  12. Hello, Did you reinstall windows when you changed to the DFI board?
  13. Sharp

    slow XP

    No that is a rip off price for something 2 years old. What is the spec?
  14. What power supply do you have and how hot does the PC run at? CPU, Chipset and PWM temps. Got another Gfx card to test with?
  15. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299340 It is an ACPI dual processor board. Works fine with this board unlike the NF2 one. Sometimes it does work if you just swap the CPU but reinstalling windows is the preferred method. Correct flash procedure is as mentioned above.
  16. Your windows restarting/shutting down issue, does it do the same thing if you reinstall windows + quick format with the X2 in there? Reason I ask is because when you swap from a single core to a dual core it can cause conflicts with the ACPI HAL. The random freezes, how hot does the PWM and chipset get? I assume that your memory can run at 2.5-3-3-6 @200Mhz?

  17. Do you think that they sent you the same one but fixed the bent pins? I have seen it more than once, a bent pin or removal of the IHS stops it working in Dual channel mode. I had an AM2 CPU which I was testing for a customer do the same thing. I removed it from the socket and underneath the CPU was around 6 bent pins. It's always a good idea to make a note of the part numbers when sending items back. If your 3700 still works then I would say it is definitely the CPU.
  18. Hello, There are no issues with the HAL configurations, - Single core ACPI Uniprocessor - Dual core ACPI Multiprocessor You shouldn't need to change this, just make sure your XP CD has SP2 already on it. With latest nvidia driver there are no issues with the IDE drivers. (Do not install the network access manager software/nvidia firewall). Stick with the latest official BIOS.
  19. Any DDR2 module will go in there but if the board does not allow you to run the memory above 800Mhz then there is no point buying PC7200/PC8500.
  20. Hello, Is this a new CPU or second hand one. IHS still on the core? Has it ever had a bent pin or been dropped. Set the CPU FSB to 200Mhz Set the memory voltage to 2.7v GENIE BIOS Setting >DRAM Configuration DRAM Frequency Set (MHZ).............200 (DRAM/FSB:1/01) Command per clock (CPC)..............Enabled Cas latency (tCL)....................2.5 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)............3 Write to read delay (tWTR)...........AUTO Read to write delay (tRWT)...........AUTO Refresh period (tREF)................AUTO Write CAS latency (tWCL).............1, might not be in BIOS 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 Do the above with 1 stick in the top orange slot. Then save & Exit Turn off and insert the second stick into the other orange slot.
  21. How hot does your CPU, chipset and PWM get? Hopefully it is cured.
  22. It is a physical change, Expert board is REV 1.0a. Cobia said he has 2 8800GTs running in his SLI-D so for it not to work on the Expert board is odd. Reinstall windows + quick format? Did you upgrade from a previous card?
  23. I can only go by looking at the manual so it may not actually be just a setting. When you do this, Overclock mode = [CPU, PCI, Async]. Is that just a setting or does it do something else like allow you to change the PCI clock? If so you must set the PCI clock to 100Mhz. And disable all the spread spectrum options. The manual only shows a settings for the PCIE clock, this should also be on 100Mhz.
