DFI chipset voltage 4.12V (fried)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I turned on my computer this morning and I got an instant BSOD when entering windows.

 

I checked my bios this morning and look what I found:

4.12V chipset voltage! How could this have happened?

I would clear the cmos like Reinvented suggested.. I find it hard to believe your even in bios if its actually pumping over 4v into your chipset..

I cleared my cmos and loaded optimized defaults and entered windows successfully.

 

But even MBM5 reports my chipset as being 4.08V at 48C (odd).

 

Heres the screen shot.

Thats weird.. Ive honestly never seen anyone with that problem before.. !

 

Its gotta be defective sensor misreading the voltage.. If it was really pumping 4+ volts into your chipset it would be ALOT hotter then 48c.. ;)

 

I would try to reflash the bios and clear the cmos with the battery out for a while and see if that changes it.. If it doesnt then it might be time to rma the board..

I finally got my board back today and wow...

 

After a month of waiting patiently and using my old pentium 2 rig instead, DFI SENT ME BACK THE SAME BOARD.

They didn't repair the problem nor did they give me a replacement! No written explaination either!

 

The 4.12V still shows up on the bios screen...

 

What the ****????!!!
