The downward spiral with my MoBo

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

 

Just a short report: After a 36 hour CMOS clear - same as before.

 

Thus, I ordered 3 chips from biosflash.com with

704-2BTA

623-2

406

 

I bought another 1GB OCZ Titanium RAM.

 

I hope this will help :-)

 

Cheers

Hi again,

 

What a nice sunny day. The German football team is in the World cup's Quarter Final, which is tomorrow. This is my day. Or not?

 

I finally got my second RAM module yesterady and today I got the three chips bought from biosflash.com.

Very good site, fast delivery, reasonable prices and a battery for free!

Removed the old BIOS chip easily with my PLCC-Tong. Plugged in the new one with the flashed 704-2BTA. OK. One single RAM module in DIMM2, Short CMOS Flash, Start.....

 

AND? Nothing! But now 4 LED's in red! All is like before, but one LED more! Wow.

I removed the HDD and was trying to start the system with CD drive only. Nothing.

 

What the hell happens with my system? I can't believe it.

I have changed nothing before the unsuccessfull Bios flash.

 

Please help!

 

Regards

nin

I would suggest stripping system to minimum (cpu,gfx,1stick ram #2slot,KB.psu)

Do reg. cmos clear see what ya get. Good luck sure your ready to start throwing things.

a.) no disrespect intended but I dont trust anything from DFI's official website. I always use a modded BIOS, if it voids my warranty, so be it. The only official BIOS (at least I think it was official) was the 623-1 through 623-3.

 

b.) IMHO the absolute best BIOS for the NF4 Ultra-D board is the 0704-2bta, so I'd swap to that chip if I were you

 

c.) Immediately after swapping bios chips do a full and proper CMOS clear as explained in ExRoadies guide.

 

d.) Make sure to do a minimal build outside of the case as explained in the NF4 build guide. All of the details are covered there.

 

Luck to you. I'm really sorry about your problems.

 

p.s. if all of the above fails, arrange an RMA on your board if possible.

Hi again,

 

Nearly 24 h proper CMOS clear. Only MoBo, #2 RAM, CPU, GFX, PSU, CD: Same as before, but again 4 LED's. Actually, as expected.

 

I have pm Bulldog, but no answer yet. Actually I have no that much time for RMA.

 

Regards

Do you have a spare socket 939 or a friend that would loan you theirs?

 

Can you confirm that you've tried the BIOS chip thats programmed with the 0704-2bta?
