ksuWildcat Posted November 28, 2007 Posted November 28, 2007 Hi all! I've got a problem and I'd like to get some advice. I have a DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR Expert, which I've owned for almost one year, but now it fails to start/boot. I don't know the board revision #, but it came loaded with the latest BIOS. I've never had any problems with the board until this week when I turned off the computer (via Windows > Start > Shutdown) and it failed to do anything the next time I tried to start it. Pressing the power switch on the case and motherboard has no effect whatsoever. But I can see the amber LED for Power/Standby is on, and my power supply seems to be OK, although I have not tried it in another machine. I've tried the official no-boot CMOS clear several times to no avail, reseating & connecting all components/cables, minimal hardware config, etc. Nothing has worked. Here are my system specs: DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR Expert Athlon FX-60 2 GB OCZ Platinum DDR-400 @ 2-3-2-5 EVGA 7950 GTO KO 512 MB PCI-Express Graphics Card Corsair 620HX Modular Power Supply 2x Western Digital Raptors (150GB) After reading other posts similar to this one, I believe that either I have a dead motherboard, or a manifestation of the cold-boot problem. I went ahead and ordered an OCZ GamerXtreme 700 watt power supply, as many have suggested that this resolves the issue. But I'd like to get some additional feedback and try to figure out what my options are? Thanks! Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
