  1. I got the SATA hdd running. It seems that I missed the SATA setting in the Genie BIOS setting. It was actually my fault. I knew of Genie BIOS and figured that was only meant for overclocking, I was looking everywhere else in the BIOS...oh well, now I know. This isn't really a problem, but I enable SATA on ch1/2 but on the main BIOS where it shows the HDD listed, my WD1600JS is listed under SATA 3/4. It is physically plugged into SATA ch1 though. Is it supposed to be like this?
  2. I have an NF4 LP Ultra mobo and I haven't had any problem with it no for about 7 months. I just bought a new 160gb SATA 3gb/s hdd and hooked it up, threw in the XP cd and went to format it before i install the system on it but it says: There is no hdd detected etc. I have 2 20gb IDE hdd's which I have been using for these 7 months, and I hooked them back up to write on these forums. I looked in under Disk Management in Admin Tools to try and format it from there, but its not listed there and I looked in the BIOS to make sure SATA is enabled but I do not see an option for it. I am out of ideas. I will be searching Google for ideas while I wait for an answer on here. Am I missing something? The SATA power and data cables are hooked up properly and I even switched cables and ports just to be safe.
  3. what does the nvidia lan do? is it basically a onboard mini hub? because i had a 4 port hub. 1 is the connection from my bros internet, 2 is going from the hub into my pc and the 3rd port has a cable going from the hub to the ps2 for online games. so take out the need for the ps2, could i basically use the 2nd port on the board for another pc if we wanted to game?
  4. is a 1gb stick of RAM better than 2x512mb, vice versa???
  5. Rgone was right about the USB. I had a USB keyboard and whenever my old PC crashed or w/e I couldn't get past the OS Selection Menu because it was a USB keyboard. I never figured it out until I plugged in a regular keyboard and put 2+2 together. I doubt that helps seeing as you got the Insert hey to work 50% of the way. Just figured I put my two cents in here somewhere. EDIT: by the way, whenever I Winflash, I always do it right when I first get the board. When everything is setup I load the OS, get online, do what I have to do and then restart, make sure everything runs fine for at least 24 hours until I start to o/c and such. I have done it about 4 times and each time it work fine. The 24hour wait period is a precautionary thing for me. oh yea, this may sound like a dumb question, but you said backup your BIOS??? i was unaware a thing like that existed! if this is real, please tell me how. :END EDIT
  6. hey thanks man. i got it working again. let me see how long it goes before conking out on me again. if it does I'm gonna try to fix it somehow and if its a no-go then I'm gonna talk to Donna.
  7. i did both and nothing...it still does the same thing... im thinking it's either defective, or something could be conflicing with it, but then again, i don't have any other sound cards and i deleted anything having to do with my old sound blaster card. i checked the irq's and dma's, everything seems to be functioning properly.
  8. ok. i got it working. but theres on problem. it seems like it works when it wants to. and when it doesn't work, i go to NVmixer, click Speaker Wizard and going through which speakers have sound and what not. Then it works for a while. When i shut down my PC and start it up again, same thing. and i have to repeat the process....suggestions anyone? EDIT: also, for some reason, it has to been on Environment Enabled to work???
  9. i mean, am i really going to notice a difference with 1600dpi? i have a crappy Yahoo mouse right now. its like 5 years old. haha
  10. is this mouse any good? i can get it for 8 bucks -- but i wouldn't buy it for its suggested 30 dollar price...
  11. thnx, but i have decided to go with PQI once again. this time with the turbo series. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820141152
  12. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820150009 this type of memory any good? im gonna be gaming...don't think i will o/c the memory as of now. but i have oc'ed my vid card and cpu.
  13. i have a zalman cnps7000b heatsink. when i attatch the fanmate2 controller and boot my pc the fan turns on for a sec, then the blue light shuts off and the fan slowly starts slowing down until it completly shuts off? can this be resolved in my bios? also, i have an antec lanboy case. i notice i have 3 leds: green, yellow and red. red is for hdd and green is the always lit led. i can't figure out what yellow is. my board nor case manuals say nothing about this. i looked at my connections and their all hooked up properly and no cables are missing. its funny, because i just noticed this when my bro bought the same case and noticed the yellow light lit. anyone have an answer to this one???
  14. just out of curiosity, is it best to leave CPU VID StartUp Value on Startup?
  15. got it working fellas. turns out, i had the wrong drivers. i was installing the nforce chipset drivers with that ac97 stuff instead of the nvmixer program. something simple that i just overlooked.
  16. will these puppies work in my ultra-d which supports ddr400?
  17. ok. i will try it when i get home. it was not on mute and i did uninstall and reinstall the drivers and made sure they were gone from the reg. so your saying i don't need the cable that goes from the Audio Module to the DVD drive?
  18. it's always good to test your builds without fully putting everything together and then go to turn it on and you get a black screen of death. what i TRY to do, is after i installed the mobo properly, insert the cpu and attach the heatsink. i then install the memory modules and video card. i turn it on just to see if it boots up and goes past the post with no errors. then install your hard drives. depending on whether your doing a clean install of your OS, you shouldn't have a problem after that. if your using XP it will take about 30-45 min for the installation. after that, your on your own. tweak your OS to however you like. install the newest drivers for everything and install your apps and programs. and then, comes the best part IMO. overclocking. i'm pretty new to overclocking, maybe less than a month old. but i learned everything i know from the street and another forum. so yep, ask questions...that's the only way to learn!
  19. just out of curiosity, why are the Opterons the only branch of the 939 series (that i know of) that only have 1000mhz for the HTT? is it because it's dual core??? 1000 for each core, so really it's 2000 like a normal 64 processor?
  20. Well, i had it set a x4.0 but the main DFI Overclocking guide I found on here told me to use 2.5 or 3. also, if i'm not mistaken, doesn't the 3200 have 2000htt??? yes. your correct. i should change those settings when i get home. well i ran SuperPI in that 128k thing, i did do a 30 min test with OCCT, i ran 3dmark01 and received a 13,800, ran pcmark04 and i ran prime95 for 7.5 hours and all tests passed.
  21. well i successfully o/ced my cpu and gfx card. just out of curiosity, this is what my GenieBIOS looks like. is it pretty standard? i just want to make sure my voltages are too high or too low... FSB Frequency: 245mhz LDT/FSB: x3.0 LDT Bus: Down 16, Up 16 CPU/FSB: Auto CPU VID: 1.475v CPU VID Control: 1.425v CPU VID S. Control: Above - 110% LTD Volt: 1.4v Chipset Volt: 1.7v DRAM Volt: 2.9v DRAM Frequency: 166mhz/FSB:5/6
  22. i read that guide the best that i could. here's what i did. when i first built the pc and i used a guide i found on here to get the dfi boards up and running. the only setting i have been tweaking was the FSB setting. it was set too 200. in my pcwizard2006 it said my cpu was at 2009.11ghz. i then started going up with 5 - 10 increments. saved bios, restarted and made sure XP booted up etc. but i did not run Prime95 after each one. i had it up to 280 when i decided to run Prime95. it failed, so i lowered it to 270 and then 260. And each time it failed. I will try 250 and below when i get home. I didn't switch the voltages until i read somewhere about keeping the volts at 1.5 so i did that and thats when i got the error in Prime95. i reset the voltages and tried again and still failed. im gonna tweak with it some more, but any ideas what range i should be in for the FSB? by the way, this is memory i have atm http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16820141167
  23. i lowered it from 2.8 to 2.6 then to 2.5 with all the small increments in the middle. i did not try the vcore, but would that be the 1.425??? i changed it to 1.5 because i read its stable there, but i will change it back to 1.425 once i get back home.
  24. After getting my cpu up to around 2.6ghz i ran Prime95 one more time and it failed so i lowered it to 2.5ghz and it fails again. this is the error i receive.

  25. I had a crappy Creative Labs sound blaster 16 bit installed and decided to install the Karajan Audio module. I hooked up the CD-in connection, but i didn't hook up for the front audio ports because I don't need them. Anyways, i installed the AC'97 driver from the utility cd and then i also double checked in the BIOS to make sure AC-97 was on Auto. Well, i went to check the sound and I am not getting anything. I have a 5.1 surround sound system and it was working before with my old card. Also, its plugged into the right port which would be Green. I made sure it was recognized in the Control Panel, had all the recent drivers and had all the volumes up in the sound panel. and still, no sound. what could be wrong???
