infinity ultra dead i think

Recommended Posts

hi guys can anyone help,i can reset cmos and then it lets me go into bios setup,but when i make my changes and save to cmos it doesn,t reboot.the processor im using is the 3200+barton 200fsb,and the memory is corsair 2x256 mb.the error message is checksum error try resetting cpu,or the cpu has been changed.so mi set it to 200fsb and then reboot,same thing wont reboot at all,so i take out battery then replace it now i can get into bios again,so i try again same thing just keeps happening,once i save changes to cmos it just wont reboot.i tried all bios versions except the latest beta one but the same thing keeps happening,is my bios chip corrupted or is my mobo dead,it used to work fine when i had 2400+ proccessor +333mhz memory installed since i changed cpu+memory it dont seem to want to work.i currently have the same processor and memory set up on another mobo and it works just fine so it isnt the cpu or memory.and thye power supply is 500watt so theres plenty of juice so i dont think its a power issue.if it helps when i clear cmos and go into settings it has my cpu down as 1900+ instead of 3200+ only when i try to save to cmos it wont reboot.if i dont save anything it reboots,please can anyone help i loved this board before it died thankyou.

That Barton is going to be locked as far as

multipliers are concerned.


The only settings you should be concerned with

at this point is the 200 bus speed.


But you'll have to bounce over and set the RAM

timings appropiately so that the RAM will boot

at 200 FSB.


Corsair 2 X 256MB. Are these XMS? Try settings

something like 11-3-2-2.5 for starters.


Set your Vcore at least 1.80 and give the Vdimm

plenty of juice. 2.8V at least.


Lastly, I feel like you need to use a different BIOS

version. Are you presently using 11/27 or ?

send me an email (in my sig) and give me this information:




telephone #

motherboard model

serial # (off the end of the box)


tell me that your bios is corrupt and you need to have it reflashed, and i will get you setup with Randy to reflash your bios.


you can also talk to elts_drac as he has blank bios chips for sale for the DFI NF2 motherboards.


or you can go to www.badflash.com and get one already preflashed.


or you can get a Bios Saviour ;)
