  1. I hope that someone is experiencing the same problem that I am with my board. I have a Saitek X52 and a Zboard gaming keyboard. When the system boots (most of the time after sitting overnight) it hangs with all 4 of the diagnostic LED's ON and a blank screen. After rebooting several times it will finally start properly. I found that unplugging the keyboard , mouse, and the X52 during the boot process will allow Windows to start. I plug the Zboard keyboard and mouse in during the Windows XP logo screen and everything is fine after that. Anyone else have an idea what's going on? ~airdog
  2. Wow!!! I finally found someone that is experiencing the same problem that I am with my board. I have a Saitek X52 and a Zboard gaming keyboard as well.

  3. Thanks for the replies and input Tank252ca. At least I know it's not just my problem and that others are experiencing the same issue. I've never had this problem before with any other motherboard that I've installed into a system. It wouldn't be so bad if it was my personal system. I could live with 2 keyboards plugged in but what really sucks is that I built this system for someone else and I don't want them to feel like they are getting a "jerry rigged" PC. I guess we can only hope that DFI will come up with a Bios fix sometime soon. still looking for a fix........ ~airdog
  4. Have you installed the latest nVidia NForce platform drivers for AMD boards? http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp Try uninstalling the video drivers, install the Nforce platform drivers, then reinstall the GeForce drivers...
  5. To enable dual channel ram on modern motherboards you must have same size ram modules, ie; 2 x 256Mb, 2 x 512Mb, 2 x 1Gb, etc. The ram modules have to be mounted in separate banks. Example: Dimm 0 and Dimm 1 is BANK 1 (sometimes marked as Dimm 1 and 2) Dimm 2 and Dimm 3 is BANK 2 (sometimes marked as Dimm 3 and 4) Place one module in the first slot of Bank 1 and the other module in the first slot of Bank 2 and you should be good to go...

  6. Every driver is installed: Motherboard/chipset drivers, Video drivers, etc. USB 2.0 works fine on all ports (including external case ports). All tested fine using external card reader. Again, the only problem is the PS2 mouse will not work with a USB keyboard.... any other ideas?
  7. What case connections? I certainly hope that DFI manufactured the motherboard correctly because I'm using the connections that come directly from the rear of the motherboard/case. And yes, I did test the other external connections that come off the board and they are wired correctly. P.S. I have been building PC's as a hobby for the past 4 years. This is the 16th system that I have built in the past 12 months. I usually use Asus boards exclusively. 2 were MSI (never again - bad capacitor issues). This is the first DFI board that I've ever installed for a customer and the first time I've ever had this issue come up. Any other ideas?
  8. All drivers (latest versions from manufactures website) are installed for the Zboard gaming keyboard. The Zboard is the only device that needed a driver. I installed Windows XP Pro and installed all updates from Windows update. The mice and other keyboards are easily recognized in Win XP except when I install a standard SP2 mouse and a USB keyboard. I loose the mouse. I have a similar setup on my home system, (SP2 mouse - Zboard - X52 joystick). The only difference is that I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe mobo and I don't have this problem. Any other ideas?
  9. I've tried them on Enabled and Disabled for both the Mouse and Keyboard. Currently they are set to Enabled Note: When I set the USB settings to Disabled the Saitek X52 joystick won't work (probably since it's recognized more as a keyboard type of peripheral)
  10. Here's the link to drivers on Sapphires webpage: http://www.sapphiretech.com/en/support/drivers.php The card is so new that Sapphire even forgot to put up drivers for this card.... Looks like you'll have to wait for the Catalyst 6.2 driver.
  11. Hey Guys, I just built a friend a PC (specs below) a new gaming system and I'm having trouble getting a PS2 mouse to work along with any USB keyboard. When I boot the system the keyboard will work but the mouse is frozen. I've tried 3 different mice and gone through the bios several times with no luck. Here's what I've tried that does or doesn't work. PS2 mouse and Zboard USB gaming keyboard = DEAD mouse PS2 mouse and Microsoft USB keyboard = DEAD mouse PS2 mouse and Logitech USB keyboard = DEAD mouse PS2 mouse and Microsoft PS2 keyboard = GOOD mouse PS2 mouse and Logitech PS2 keyboard = GOOD mouse PS2 mouse - Microsoft PS2 keyboard - Zboard USB gaming keyboard = GOOD mouse Anyone have idea on what's going on? It's seems that the PS2 mouse will only work with USB keyboard if a PS2 keyboard is also plugged in as well...??? Thanks in advance for all replies.
