blackandblue Posted December 28, 2006 Posted December 28, 2006 Hey guys. I just got my DFI Expert a little over a week ago and I just got it working last night. I actually just wanted to thank everyone on this board for helping me out (even thought you dont know you did, since I did a TON of searching). This is my 5th build (1st DFI) and by far the only one that wasnt up and running within a day. It took me 2 days just to install windows (kept freezing during the setup). After the windows installation was complete, it would randomly freeze during the startup screen (one with scrolling, knight rider like bar). Then, after the initial build, whenever I added a drive, I would get the BSOD during startup. I had to put all of my drives on the cable select jumper and make sure they were in the right order just to get it started. But of course I still got the BSOD, but at a different point than the first time. Sooo...... I replaced my Dynex 500w power supply (it says 34A for combined rails, but I don't know... I was told to replace this anyway by you guys, but wanted to give it a chance) with an Antec Trio 650w (which is getting returned once I get my OCZ). After replacing the PSU, everything worked like a champ. Basically, just letting everyone know how great this place is and if it werent for you, I would have RMA'd my board a bunch of times until I finally gave up and bought a Dell (oh, just kidding, I wouldnt do that). Thanks, Craig Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
