Wont boot on restart


Recommended Posts

Sorry if i left anything out im a little tired. If you need more info let me know.

Im new to the DFI scene just got my board today been setting it up for the past 6 hours. Tried a few games runs great.

One problem i can not get over though, is that when ever i had to restart 2 times out of 3 i would get post screen, raid screen, then the screen would go black and there is a white bar flashing on top. Ive let it sit there for 10-15 minutes and it does nothing else, so i have to hit the restart button or shut it down. One more thing, in order for my board to post video and save bios info, I had to set first init display to PCI. Is there anything in bios i need to change or do i need to flash bios?? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome!

 

What first cought my eye was this part of your sig: "3x PQI...". Does that mean you've installed 3 modules of RAM? If so you've got to go through the manual again. One, two or four modules of RAM will work if using the correct slots, but not three.

 

Before continue I would like to know the answer to the above.

 

Another thing: be prepared for some comments about your PSU. Most if not all around here don't trust Aspire for good reasons.

Yes 3 modules of pqi ram. Laff my Aspire PSU has done me well for 2 years havent had a single prob but I also run 3 120mm fans 2 80mm fans and water cooling, i also have the PSU fan maxed. I will remove 1 stick what slots should i have the other 2 in 1,2 fig or 3,4? or mix?

Tried 2&4 wouldnt post even after reseting bios. Did a memtest on the board i had before came up clean should I do it again? I also tried every configuration of ram; 1 stick, 2 sticks, then all 3. If i enter bios save and exit not touching any settings causes no boot, if i load defaults same thing.

you can not use three sticks ....... if they don't work in 1 & 3 or 2 &4 then maybe you should up the memory volts to like 2.7 and try memtest from disk or CD not the windows memtest. and test them sticks one at a time. and when you can make it to the OS then post what CPU-z says for SPD

I will up the volts if that dont work??

Well heres the problem it took me almost an hour this morning to get my computer to run with 2 sticks. I have to run it in 1&2 or no post. Now it freezes at splash or logo screen whatever you wanna call it, also freezes in bios. With all 3 sticks in 1&3&4 it boots just fine doesnt freeze in bios, but wont boot after restart from windows or bios. Do you think it could be a faulty mobo? Ive also bought new ram today corsair and mushkin still get the same problems.
