  1. I had this exact same problem. The reason why I got stuck on the splash screen was faulty RAM. You may want to try another module (borrow one from a friend, take it to a PC shop, etc) http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54186 Hope that helps
  2. My graphics card is placed in the other PCI-E slot and works fine.
  3. It sounds like it's a problem with your connection as opposed to your PC. I would suggest placing some sort of bandwidth monitoring in place to see if you drop after using a set amount of bandwidth. Alternatively, simply surf the net or download something to see if you get the connection problems when using the net for non-game related purposes. Speak with your ISP. The only other explanation for this is if you've got a program that is set to run an automated check/download/etc after a set amount of time. Is your anti-virus downloading updates or performing a scan, or something of that nature. Good luck and let us know what happens or if you've made any progress.
  4. I've read through your post and find it very strange. A couple of quick questions: Do you recieve these connection problems only when playing games or does the connection drop in other instances? (Ie, when downloading files, browsing the net, etc) Does the connection drop on every game you play or just some? Do you have a cable modem connection or DSL. Do you drop your connection when playing on a LAN or is just when connected to the net?
  5. After taking the PC to a shop to test the various components it was found that the RAM was faulty. After getting a replacement I am now happily watching windows install. Thank you all again for all your help and I must say this is a brilliant forum with some very knowledable people contributing.
  6. Hi Guys, After waiting for pay day to come around I have invested in a 550W PSU which I've installed but unfortunatly there has been no change to the system. It still hangs on the DFI splash screen and I'm still unable to get to the BIOS and one status LED is showing. I have tried resetting the CMOS, put the RAM in the various slots, removed the motherboard from the case to ensure it's not shorting out, removed all but the vital components and ensured all the power cables are connected. Any idea on how to get past this cursed splash screen so I can start using the PC or should I RMA the board? Thank you again for the help.
  7. I have the artic cooler installed on my machine and although it is a bit tight I can install RAM in all four slots.
  8. Thanks - I've tried that and unfortuantl]y it hasn't helped. Thanks though. I've removed all the componets, HD, DVD, etc and now only running with RAM, CPU and graphics card. This is the minimum I can run it with and I'm still unable to get access to the BIOS. The manual states that the min requirements is 400W PSU (I know it's not really enough) but I would expect to be able to get to the BIOS with the min setup I've got. Again, thank you all for the help.
  9. I've got a more powerful PSU on order. Surely though, an underpowered PSU shouldn't prevent me from getting to the BIOS?
  10. Thank you for your reply The main problem I am facing is that I am unable to gain access the BIOS at all. Pressing the usual suspects of delete, F2, F8, etc don't get any response (neither do any other keys inc control-alt-delete, etc). The system con and the system is hanging on the DFI splash screen. The CMOS reset I've tried was by removing the battery, and swapping the CMOS jumper, leaving it for 15 minutes, etc as detailed in the forum. The memory I'm currently using is unbranded but I tested it with a friends branded memory with the same result. I'm quite happy to change the settings in the BIOS to work with the power supply if I could only get there. When the system powers up, I start by having all four LEDs display, this drops to 3, then 2 then 1. Again, any help or ideas would be appreciated.
  11. Hi Guys, I would like to introduce myself and request some help. I've spent about a week reading through the internet and the various forums and this is cleary the best one for anything DFI related. I have recently purchased a DFI LanParty nF4 SLI-D board, built my system (spec in sig) and attempted to boot it up. It starts nicely enough displaying the correct info about my graphics card. It then jumps to the DFI splash screen and hangs with one LED lit. I'm unable to get access to the bios and there no is no response from the PC at all. I have tried everything I can think of the fix this including safe boot, reseting the CMOS as per the very good instructions on this site. I've stipped the system down to it's bare minum with one RAM module, CPU & graphics card. I've removed the MB from the case and booted it on the bag to check for shorts all with no success. Any suggestions from yourselfs would be greatly appreciated before I am forced to RMA the board. Thank you in advance. Regards Spoonstar
