Hi,

 

X2 4400+

NF4 Expert Mobo

2x256MB Twinmoss PC4000 (In temporary while awaiting delivery of 2x1GB G.Skill, after selling existing 4x512MB G.Skill)

36GB Raptor as boot drive

 

Went to work this morning comp works fine. Come home, wiggle the mouse to wake the rig up and nothing.

 

All 4 Diagnostic LEDS on the Motherboard remain lit.

 

All fans spin up (GPU, NB, CPU etc )

 

Heatpipes on CPU Stock HS do not warm up (another bad sign)

 

The manual is not uberclear on this, but I am guessing that it's not detecting the CPU........

 

Which is v bad. Has an Expert eaten another CPU?

 

All settings were stock as I was waiting for my new case to install my Watercooling gear and seriously OC the beast. Had pushed it to 3.6ghz stable on air previously to test it out, but had been running stock for past 3 weeks.

 

First can someone pls confirm that all 4 LEDS lit indeed means no CPU detected?

 

Second, any ideas?

 

Third what hope have I got of RMA'ing the CPU to AMD, or getting DFI to cough up for a new chip if indeed it has fried my CPU?

 

I was running the latest official BIOS flashed on 3-4 weeks ago. (can't remember the number and cant fecking check)

 

All help and suggestions greatly received

I believe 4 LEDs lit means no CPU detection.

 

3 LEDs would mean CPU detected, 2 LEDs would mean VIDEO detected, 1 LED would mean RAM detected. I think that is the correct order.

If you did not make a typo with 3.6ghz on air then how the hell could you blame anything on mobo or cpu or expect any one to replace anything. If its dead, you did it and you need to live with it and not pass it on to others. That said, it might just be bios issue try clearing cmos and see what ya get.

A typo - 2.6ghz on air.

 

And at stock volts.

 

If in this case the CPU had died I would have felt fully vindicated accusing DFI or AMD, when I blow shít up myself I am also big enough to hold my hand up!
