Boot problem

Recommended Posts

Ok my computer started getting wierd today. I turned it on, power came but no POST. So, I reset my CMOS and it worked again, I edited the BIOS and it rebooted, no POST. I reset the CMOS again and didnt edit the BIOS and made it into windows. I then rebooted to see if I could get into BIOS, but it didnt POST. It seems locked in an endless cycle of CMOS reset. I've tried mem modules in every slot to see if they will work and it is the same result each time. Any thoughts?

Nah still doesnt work. The only two things that could relate to this problem is that I sanded down the raised part of the socket and some dust got into the socket holes. Another thing that could have caused it is that I booted up with closing the lever arm on the socket :eek: But I don't know whether or not those have caused the problems. I removed the IHS off my Opteron and the proc seems to be working fine, runs benches and games without a hiccup, but something else is causing the problem.

Try a barebones approach. Connect only what is required to post. If all is good try adding your parts one at a time. Also if you are able to post with just what is required, then also you could try reflashing your bios.
