Loading optimised defaults seems to hinder not help!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Sorry to trouble you again but my motherboard is giving me some major grief. It started off when i believe i corrupted my windows install. in a stupid last ditch attempt to save me reformatting i tried flashing to the new 06/04 bios. flash went ok, but when i loaded optimised defaults after flashing it then wouldn't POST. after about 20 clear cmos's and unplugging and replugging i some how managed to get it to boot and everything seemed to work again. i decided to go back to the 23/06 bios and same thing happened again. loaded optimised defaults and now it wont POST. i've tried all the clear cmos things including the 24 hour proper CMOS clear and it still not post. :sad:

 

Is my board dying a death or am i not treating it right?!? :(

 

i really don't want to have to spend 3 days getting my pc to work everytime i load optimised defaults. could it be on it's way out? i've only had it 8-9 months.

Sorry to break this to you but it could be that pair of Ballistix. I myself just finished priming for more than 8 hrs. with 4GB Ballisix. But you might want to test them seperately again, and I hope they are still very good because they are the very best when they work. Another thing is to make sure you check the bios specially the vcore settings when you load up default just to make sure. :angel:

thanks for the quick reply.

i am sure it is not the ballistix i mem tested them for 24 hours about a week a go and got no errors. i tested them at 250mhz 3-3-3-8 1t. so i'm sure it's not them. i can try different mem but im 99% sure that isn't the prob.

 

when i boot i get 3 diaognostic lights show up, with the 4th one flashing every 2 seconds, this sequence continues for about 10 seconds then the lights go out 3,2,1 and then i get a long beep and the 1 light remains on and the systems hangs.
