nF4 SLI DR booting problems

Recommended Posts

Hello folks!


I've got my system up and running, but I am experiencing a booting problem. Well, here we go:


I got my DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI DR quite a long time ago. I put everything together, with some Kingmax RAM. I tried to load Windows, but it would lock up, with a flashing line at the top of the screen. So I changed the memory for some Samsung TC80, and I installed Windows, everything was working OK. During this time, I am unsure if I was experiencing booting problems, because I only had to reboot 2 or 3 times. Well, I installed all the drivers and programs, and then I installed nTune. So I launch it, and the whole computer locked up. So I restart, and I can't remember exactly, but I think this was the first time I experienced the problem:


When I press the power button, all the fans go on, and the PC starts to boot. And it locks up at two places, either at:


Phoneix BIOS




Phoneix BIOS


CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+


It usually takes me two resets to get the PC to boot, but today, I was really freaked out - I had to press the power button 5 or 6 times to get it to boot. Once I'm in Windows though, everything is rock solid, no problem playing games, benchmarking, what so ever. Even if I load the BIOS defaults, I still have this problem.


Any help appreciated,




AMD Athlon 3500+
