You only get an avatar, if and only IF you please AG, the master of the universe, who rules dfi forums with his right hand and reigns with his left.

 

Now, do I make myself perfectly clear, sonny? :D

So is that enough system data in my signature for a rough diagnosis ?

 

I need the physical Bios key (is it del ? )

 

I only got about 5 tries at it before the storm stopped us this afternmoon

I have also hung on the "detecting array" sequence of events as I couldnt get to the bios or had the wrong key. ( I did swop the cmos for a 3.20 vs the 3.10 that shipped but I had it out for less than 2 seconds.)

 

On a search I did on the DFI forums I found four threads and a nice sequence faq that I was trying this afternoon.

 

THe PC is built and at the bossmans house and we will (weather allowing) either work on our regular job or it if it rains.

 

My first DFI board build and I am impressed so far. I am not really into overclocking but I like hot PC's. My current PC is an Intel specific (board cpu) machine that I built for myself that is decent by most standards. Got a gig of pc 2700 and it throws all the graphics I need on a radeon 9200se. (of course its probably a childs toy to most users PC's here and thats cool, it might just inspire me.)

 

This pc blows 80% of the stock machines out of the water anyway and its better than the 386 win3.1 dos days by light years.

 

Might try a dfi build for myself later this year, I see the boards as not becoming obsolete for 5 - 7 years. heck, I would be happy to get that out of any system.

 

EDIT: found Del is correct bios key in some post. Reading more atm and looks like I can solve most of my issues.

 

I am here for the knowledge, tis just another advancement of technology that I absorb, no big deal I have done this many times now.

 

Arr ! there's data to port capn.... :D

Who me? Yeah Right, I don't think so.

 

Nope, NOT ME! Right now I'm working out hard to get six pack abs. Upper torso is in great shape, since lifting for the last 8 months. Now, I'm resolved to get rid of the belly. Yes sir, this time I'm gonna do it!

 

I will be in PERFECT SHAPE before I check into the nursing home! Yes sir re!

arr, no guilty conscience here either. I Think I broke my left middle finger today.

 

Gonna go get another dose at work tomorrow. Yeeee haaaa ! Thats gonna be special... At least its not a puncture wound as per the norm. Finger Still bends but hurts like hades.

 

The boss must have split with the wife and drifted on the details I asked for to complete the sig for diagnosis. We talked today and I am going to cart it here and set it up here so i will be able to fill in the final details here in a day or so.

 

Just looking for stability. I have as many questions as answers so far. I should be up to snuff and on the tech page soon. I made a couple txtfiles of links and text so far and found a lot of data. Most issues are coverd. Its that one little nuance that always gets ya.

 

I have fixed a ton of Compaqs and HP's in my techie mode. *(in the offseason) Other than this rig, the dfi board will be the nicest pc I have built from scratch. (fastest also as it will beat mine.)

 

heck i have only really just now appreciated the level of setup required. I just want bulletproof and I have already made plans to add at least one more slot fan for potential heat issues. Bios isnt a problem, just takes time to absorb to get comfortable with a new one.

 

I have only a DVD /R in it now and I read in a thread about its install issues. I can just grab an extra and slap it in to get an install. (of course i put a floppy in cause I figured a bios update would be benificial to stability.)

 

I have already modded the case and screwed the Vid card in but in my mind its not good enough and I am going to build a custom stand to support the card as I have seen issues with pins getting bent or sprung before. (saw a 5 pound radeon eat a Asus A7880 board and ruin its 8x agp slot. )

 

She's a little belly heavy capn, gonna shore her up.

Those were in a thermaltake/ hardcano case I built for a customer and I played hades wireing it. I bet it had 15 yards of wire in the fan units power cables.
