DFI Lanparty Ultra A Not saving BIOS


Recommended Posts

I have been having probs with this mobo. It wont seem to save down the bios. It had the problem, but it went away. Only thing I did was switch PC cases. It seems to freeze after I try saving the bios

 

Any suggestions?

 

It was working until today when I tried to intall a floppy drive to flash my X800 Pro to a XT PE

:confused:

I'm a bit confused by the it was having probs then they went away... but now it has problems again.

 

Anyway.... I'd probably start by trying these--

 

Unplug the floppy drive and see if it works.

Check to make sure the floppy cable is plugged in well.

Try a different floppy cable.

Check BIOS to see if it identifies the floppy drive properly.

Clear CMOS and load optimized defaults.

 

And please make a sig with your specs.... so we can get some idea what we are dealing with.

It's been a long night...

For now.... just worry about the specs for the one you are working on.

 

What is it doing now? Does it post? Can you get to the BIOS?

So.... it let's you post and get to the bios. Then... if you load optimized defaults and save and exit.... it just sits there for a really long time until you eventually press restart. Am I correct? or is it doing something different?

 

And after it sits there forever..... you have to clear CMOS to get it to post. Right?

 

Sorry... I'm just trying to figure out if I understood what you said.
