  1. well its not the dvd player, still getting the same bsod without it plugged in no o/c running at 1.8 running memtest atm. the machine wont stay on for 12 straight hours, i doubt ill be able to test prime. as for the mobo, i have everything running on default settings.
  2. thought it might be the sata cord that was causing the issues. used a new one, same result bsod (machine check expection.) i have now unplugged the sata cord from the mobo, will see if it happens again.
  3. another problem (related?) i am having over the last month is that i am having an extreme amount of trouble with my dlink wireless. The network device will just disappear under the network connections tab. Or when i start up the machine i dont even seen the network connector come up in the irqs. A reboot usually solves these problems.
  4. only got the one machine here. so no swapping parts for parts unfortunately.
  5. a few other outcomes i forgot to add in. boots thru to a bsod machine check exception last octet 000070f07 or it boots to a black screen after loading up windows waits a few minutes and then boots up. I have added a sata dvd drive as well, not sure if that might be causing the troubles.
  6. Hey guys havent posted in a long time. Having trouble with my expert, hoping you can give some expert advice! I havent been able to even narrow down this problem let alone solve it, and i know there are some masters here. I have the dfi-expert and an opty 165. using a OCZ Gxstream 700w psu. I seem to have various issues with the board. They seem to happen randomly, without pattern, so let me give you a rundown of the issues i seem to have When i power my machine, these are my different outcomes. - computer doesnt post. 3red lights on the light readout on the board. - computer boots but says the device settings have changed. unable to select f1 or del from the keyboard. (keyboard lights up, but not responsive, doesnt matter if i unplug and replug it in.) - computer boots and gets past the windows screen and sits black. - computer boots into windows but the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive. - computer boots into windows and works fine. ( this will work as long as i need it to, but if i leave it overnight, i will come back to a blank unresponsive screen. When i start up my computer, it usually takes a few tries to get it up and going. Ive had and fixed more than my share of problems, but this one has me stumped. Anyone?? thanks Andrew ps i dont have the pc o/cd at all sitting at its norm of 1.8
  7. i dont think its a capacitor, because its small, and i know what a capacitor is, and that theyre soldered on, this isnt soldered on and on the board now are two metal fins where it would have pushed on, like it got popped off. any ideas what this is and controls? right near the top of the board, where the top screw screws in your mobo tray.
  8. hey guys working on my board and i just knocked off a capacitor. its the one right near the top right screwdown hole what do i do now? never knocked on off before anyone know what this one does? it will post, and get into the bios, i dont have a hd to test it further atm. andrew
  9. i need to find this for sale in canada though, the border negates any good deals with their duty ncix, tiger direct, bigfootcomputers are out anyone know who sells these in canada? any thoughts on these? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=6841386082
  10. what about the 3000+ mobile with the 1mb of l2? im seeing one for dirt cheap
  11. have decided to move off my asus board and my mobile and am looking at the 250gb dfi lp board my question is what chip should i be looking at for a nice overclock? from what im reading they all do ok is there one i should keeping an eye out for? thanks andrew
  12. where are these for sale? not having any luck finding them
  13. on a mobile 2500 and i want to push it further than the lousy 2.4 im at but for the right deal i could be pursuaded to go 754 located in windsor, canada but i have a US address i can ship to dont really need accessories but list what you have, thanks. andrew
  14. im interested in the board, give me a few days to mull things over
  15. can you fine gentlemen please tell me why(if) it would be beneficial to upgrade from a a7n8x to a infinity nf2 board theres one for slae for fairly cheap and if i can run a modded bios for an fsb jump the 60bucks is worth it to me thanks andrew
  16. hmmm from everything ive read the l2 cache makes little to no performance difference in gaming. might be wrong though, idk
  17. indeed thanks guys, you have saved me money and time, as im going to stick with my current setup if you guys forsee one upgrade which would help me though, what would it be?
  18. im trying to determine the performance of a well overclocked nf2 board compared to an entry level socket 754 or 939 board every link comparing and contrasting processors brings me to the same conclusion http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2149&p=7 yes, i realize the 3200 at stock speeds is gross compared to our newer 64 chips heres how i currently stack up for parts. Lian Leezy For Sheezy PC60 Koolance Watercooling Asus A7N8X AMD Athlon XP Mobile @ 2.466ghz 160 gig WD Ati X850XT PE(pro mod) 2GB Corsair XMS 3200XL how much of a performance increase will i see moving to 754 or 939 from my current setup? and can someone please explain the basic reasons 64bit chips are better from a gaming aspect? aside from running 64bit and futureproof im not getting it. thanks guys andrew
  19. alright guys i bought 2 1gig sticks of xms pc 3200xl corsair jobbies. what is the best way to find my max overclock on this machine
  20. how much are the timings going to matter? im trying to decide if justtwo sticks or corsair value would do the trick.
  21. i have two 512 sticks of corsair value 3200 and a 512stick of pc3700hyperx should i even attempt to oc this setup, or wait and get different ram? i have been offered 2 1gb sticks of ocz plat for my ram and ~100 and some bucks. im just trying to squeeze performance out of this machine, so i dont need to upgrade. is it worth putting time into this machine? if i find a lan party board for a decent price, id look to pick it up if i mix that with a x850xt pe and 2 gigs of ram, im sure ill be able to play bf2 quite well im just looking for solutions or suggestions, thanks for the help so far guys what si the dimmmod you speak of?
  22. hmmm no no offense taken what settings would you suggest me looking for a gig of ram? like 2.5 and down? will the timings make a huge choice if i went with say 2 sticks of 3-4-4-8 instead of a gig of say 2-3-2-5? i was looking at the corsair like this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1 or even this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1 thoughts?
  23. well i wouldnt say i am a newb, i know alot of random things, just not the ins and the outs of ocing the nf2. why is the lower multi more desirable? and would 10 x 240 be a good goal to try and achieve? if i can boot at 2.4 as is, i should be able to i would think. if you had to reccomend a gig stick, what would you list as some of the best? the link you game is too expensive.
