critchey1 Posted January 3, 2007 Posted January 3, 2007 Hello everyone, I have just recently picked up a DFI Lanparty UT CFX3200 to go with a bunch of other new upgrades to my system. For some reason my system will randomly either hang for 10-20 secs after listing the processor on the post screen or lock up entirely not showing anything other than the processor listing. If it hangs on the post screen the memory info and drive listing pops up after 10-20 secs and in most cases after loading the drives, before continuing to load windows it will say at the bottom of the screen that the Boot Priority has changed and it requires me to press F1 to continue. Whether it locks up entirely or hangs for a short period it always gives the error code "20" on my digital read out on my motherboard... which according to my manual is a HDD initialization error. I've been dealing with this problem for the past 3 weeks. My first thoughts were that the mobo or processor were bad, so I RMA'ed them, got the new ones and the same thing was happening. Updated the Bios to 7/28/2006 which on the DFI site is the most current and the problem still persisted. Tried 3 different types of RAM and 2 hard drives (1 being my normal SATA drive, the other being an extra IDE drive I had laying around) and still no change, and I've tried 3 different PSUs with no change. Any clues as to what else it could possibly be? Oh and on a side note, I brought my Comp Box with me to work 3 different times in total to have a friend take a look at it, and I could never get it to do the boot problem while at work. The only things that changed between my home and my work were the power socket, keyboard/mouse and monitor. I tried running an extension cable to another part of my house that is on another circuit and the problem occurred, swapped out keyboard/mouse and the problem still occurred, and lastly I tried switching my monitor from DVI to AGP. When I switched the cable type from the digital to analog the problem stopped occurring for about 4 or 5 days at my home, then just yesterday it began again. At this point i've tried so many things I really have no idea what it could be anymore. Any help would be appreciated. Specs included in sig. Also one thing I forgot to say was once you get past the post screen and into windows it doesn't seem to have any problems at all. Works just like it should.
