Boot Problem

Recommended Posts

I just rebooted for the first time in like 2 weeks on my main rig (has been folding away nicely at 3306MHz), and it wouldn't reboot. So I thought what's going on, reset the BIOS quickly (easy ;) The Blood Iron has a CMOS reset switch where the USB headers are ;)), done that, and it boots. I go into the BIOS, dial in 400x8 @ 1.35Vcore (too much, just to be sure), wouldn't boot.... I was a little pissed off at this stage, reset again, go back into the BIOS, the only thing I adjust is HDD S.M.A.R.T on, and AGAIN, no boot!

 

The only time it boots is when I don't enter the BIOS. If I go restart from Windows, it won't reboot, it will just hang there with a blank screen and fans spinning. This is where I am really pissed off!

 

Back in the day with the 939 DFI boards, I remember things about cold boot issues etc, because the boards were drawing too much power from the 5V line or something like that, could this be related? I would hope not, because that would mean my PSU is kinna failing, as it has booted this rig a couple of times already during the first overclocking session :unsure: Has anyone else experienced something like this on this board, or on other boards? Or does anyone know what this traces back to exactly? PSU or mainboard? Something else? :huh:

Every so often I have a problem with my DFI motherboard getting confused when it boots up and freezing half way through, but I haven't had that problem inparticular. Have you tred removing the battery, although that doesn't have much on a board with a CMOS reset switch, worth a shoot if you ask me. Just curious will it boot if you enter bios and then exit without saving changes?

Another dude on DFIclub.org has the same problem, I'm gonna try flashing to an earlier BIOS and see if that fixes it
