  1. I might have fixed it. For the last week it hasnt had any problems booting. The DRAM LED is off the second you turn off the computer, but the second you push the power button everything lights up and it boots. The Deep Clear CMOS routine was what probably fixed it. It just took more than 1 day for it to work though. Looks like I will not be RMAing this one after all. Thanks for the help.
  2. This is my 3rd DFI Nf4 Build. I have built 2 SLI-DR systems and now my own Ultra-D. I have taken the mobo tray out, used 1 stick of ram, and took the PSU out and thats it... No CD-rom or anything else but the essentials. I can sorta see a dim light coming out of the LED, but its not completely lit... just one spec of it is orange. This is annoying I think I'm going to just get the Crossfire DFI board off of newegg for $60 then RMA this one. And use it for a backup mobo/ another computer since I have an old Winnie 3000 laying around. Im a sucker for 939 systems. :nod:
  3. I did a 20hr CMOS Clear. Hooked up all 4 power connectors. Turned off PSU. Moved the CMOS jumper to Clear, and pulled the battery out. left it like that for over 20hrs. Then I left 1 stick of ram in the 2nd ram slot (1st orange one) and loaded optimized defaults. That didnt help. And I cant managed to flick the PSU button on an off to make the LED light up. The 24pin strategy works everytime, eventually. And I have a 120mm hole in my case since I cut a 120mm fan when my NeoPower 480 PSU was installed, and when I bought the Silencer 610w, it was really long and the 120mm fan had to go. So I plan to put a window on it, and mount a 92mm fan on top on the window. Anyways. This didnt help me, next tip?
  4. The problem is that whenever I shut down the computer, the DRAM LED does not light up. I have gone through 4 PSUs now, all of them will power other systems... First one was a Antec NeoPower 480w, then I got a PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610w, then I used a Seasonic S12E+ 650w, and I tried a Antec TruePower 2.0 380w. I REALLY doubt it is the PSU, I have swapped ram, and tried with no ram. But everytime I shutdown the computer only the standby LED comes on, the DRAM LED never goes on. The only time I can get it to go on is if I take out the 24pin and re-insert it over and over, and eventually the DRAM LED WILL light up, and thats the only way I know how to get this working. So you guys tell me, what else could be the problem? I asked about this same issue on another thread, but noone replied, so I really want to get this fixed, and I need some help.

  6. I have the same problem with my ultra-d motherboard. I had a neopower 480w and one night, I cant remember if I swapped a hdd in or something, but the LED next to the ram stopped lighting up when I shut down the computer. The only way to get the LED to light up is to take the 24pin connector out of the motherboard and put it back in, and you will probably have to do this over and over until the LED lights up. Like you, I thought it was a PSU problem, and bought a PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610w and hooked everything up, and the same thing happened... The LED next to the ram would not light up, and I had to take the 24pin out and but it back in over and over then it would boot and run perfectly. I still have this problem, and I have been searching these forums, and I couldn't find anything and I was just getting ready to post a new thread when I found this one... So I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. Do I have to RMA the motherboard, or is there something else I should try? EDIT: I just flashed the BIOS to the 4/6/2006 and it didn't help any.
  7. That'll do for now, when I decide to dump some money on a 939 nf4 setup, I'll pickup 2 more 80gb's :cool:
  8. I am really thinking about moving to a SATA-II and RAID 0 setup. I know that this mobo only supports SATA-150, but this Hitachi drive says it runs at SATA-I until you use the utility, and its supposively SATA-150 compatible. I just want to make sure this will work with this motherboard. Btw, here is a link to EOCF where I first posted this question, are these guys right about this?
  9. There isnt a sticky for Warranty information I'll sure as h3L check though.
  10. Thats not true in my case, I've done 270mhz @ 3-4-3-8 and 2.7v 1:1 with this ram, and paired that with a 9x multiplier with 1.6v to cpu. And right now I'm starting to get boots more and more often. I started off with the fail-safe defaults, then optimized then back to failsafe and it works. Then I tried 200x10 ram @ auto, which turns out to be 200mhz 3-4-3-8 so thats okay. I am just really hyped that I'm back at 2ghz (coming from the 803mhz that is "Optimized") and I sorta dont want to take a chance and mess every thing up by putting ram back at 250mhz (stock) and cpu multiplier at 8x. That does give me an extra 5fps or more in bf2, so thats nice. But I think I'll mess with the BIOS settings/ issues until the weekend, just so I have a computer this week. Anyways, Does anyone know how long the warranty is on these mobo's? Cause my USB ports STILL dont work. I've tried new drivers, I've tried installing windows 2000 pro, and everytime windows says it doesnt reconize the USB device, whether its my mx510 or my flashdrive it gives the same error. :sad: So I would like to get a replacement/or get it repaired if my USB ports are trash, and if there is even any type of warranty on it.
  11. Okay..... So I know how to overclock, and I learned that I cant assume my old settings are going to work on the new one, but how come it will hang up when detecting my array? I still dont get that, and its so much of a issue that it will only boot when I load optimized and turn off thermal throttling, if I try to change the speed of the processor from 803mhz up to 1000mhz it will still hang in the detecting array thing. I asked for help on a specific problem and you give me a link to a bunch of other stickies.... :confused: 1.8v is safe? I've put it at 1.7 or 1.6 never tried 1.8v but if it wont hurt anything, Im willing to do that.
  12. Hi, I'm a First time DFI-street poster, but a long-time DFI user. I have been having some issues with my mobo for a good 2 weeks now.... My USB ports werent working after a power loss and PSU death, so I got a Neo480w and flashed my BIOS following the "Official" Way to flash the bios according to Angry Gamer. My First attempt was to flash it using WinFlash w/ 623 and then shut down, then jack pwr cord, then jack cmos battery, then put cmos battery back in after 1minute, then I reset the cmos using the jumper, then I powered it back up, then went into BIOS immediately, loaded Optimized defaults, then Saved and exited. Then I let it get past bios screen, and It said something like " Nvidia IDE ROM bios ver 4.52".... then it would try and detect the array, then it would goto a black screen and sometimes it would restart and sometimes it will just hang up in the black screen. So I've tried to load fail-safe defaults and it would do the same thing, and I've just tried to configure the settings to my 250x8 with ram @ 1:1 3-4-3-8 and 2.8v and cpu is at 2000mhz 1.45v which is all stock except for cpu voltage (not Prime95 stable at 1.4v) and it didnt work with these settings either. I've tried all sorts of combo's and options, and I may get lucky every once and a while and boot into windows after loading failsafe defaults and disabling the CPU-thermal throttling. But that doesnt work all the time either. So I got it to boot off of a floppy once, and flashed it to the 504 bios, and since then I've had the same exact problems.... I am really stumped and need some help. :confused: EDIT: I have searched the forums looking for same problem, and I found that the only solution would to be RMA the mobo, is that true? If so, my friend bought this mobo from newegg for me, when he burnt up the Chaintech VNF3-250 mobo, so I can still prolly get the Proof of Purchase, and I still have the mobo box, mobo bag, 2 IDE cables, the floppy cable, the RAID floppy, the mobo CD and SATA cables, just about everything except the manual. And I got this board about a year ago, hope its still under warranty.
