Floppy?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I almost finished my new system still waiting on the dvd drive so I can't obviously install OS until then , but while I'm waiting I thought I would run some memtest.

I can boot , get into bios , save and exit no problem, but it seems like it's skipping the floppy. what happens is, she boots post info no problem the goes into the raid press F10 , then the next screen comes up the one with a bunch of info where normally at the buttom it should say "verifying DMA" but that is missing, then it hangs there for a few second and reboot again.

I tried different diskettes:

memtest86 (tested on other machine and works fine

bootdisk tested on other machine as well.

I tried different floppy connector

I tried "boot up floppy seek" and it does make noise at that stage when booting.

 

and in all cases it doesn't seem to look for the floppy, pass the 3 post screens.

 

Specs:

pc power &cooling 850 ssi

DFI lanparty UT sli-dr

X2 4400

2x512 OCZ pc4000gold VX

floppy mitsumi 8 in 1 (card reader)

2x WD raptor 74gb

2x Evga 7800gtx (SLI switched on)

waiting on DVD rom

 

I searched the whole forum and nothing, any help would be greatly appreciated.

What bios are you running?

 

What slots are the ram in?

 

Try setting this in the bios:

 

In Genie Bios

200

auto

16 16

auto

100

disable

1.450v

1.300V

above VID 113%

1.30v

1.70v

2.9V

 

Dram Config

200

enable

Holy sh!t, that is a nice power supply... And you also have 2x 7800GTX, wow, if you have all this money why didn't you get the X2 4800+? I think the floppy dosnt work because it's usb.

problem solved I just changed the bios to "load optimized settings" and bam, I bought this mobo from monarch as a mobo/cpu combo apparently they had changed something in bios.

 

I will however follow your settings for bios after this thanks very much , I'm now running memtest to ensure all hardwares are fine.

thanks for your reply Ryder :)

I changed the bios according to your settings, everything is fine just a couple of concerns:

 

1- CPU voltage is now showing 1.46V (is this too high?) what is the default voltage for the 4400+

 

2-the above came along with a bout 4C gigher temp on cpu I'm now getting 38C idle note I'm using TR XP-90 heatsink and I had around 34C idle when I fired up yesterday

 

3- also chipset is a little two high it's running at 51C idle

 

thanks again

This Part here controls CPU Voltage:

100

disable

1.450v

1.300V

above VID 113%

1.30v

1.70v

2.9V

 

Try and stay under 1.4 with the first one...just add more percentage to the lower one to get what you need. I assume you will want to OC the CPU so you can leave the voltage here...I believe stock is 1.40V. If you are going to run all stock with the CPU...try 1.30V with 110% over VID (net 1.43V) or 1.350V with 104% (net 1.404V)

 

Higher voltage will make higher temps.

 

Chipset voltage is here:

100

disable

1.450v

1.300V

above VID 113%

1.30v

1.70v

2.9V

Stock is 1.5V so you can lower to this....some people get good results and OC with more here...some say leave it stock...no matter whatever works for you.

I am not planning to OC right now , I like to get familiar with my hardware behavior before I rock the boat, I am new to DFI as well as OCZ my current system is an asus+ corsair .

 

So I now would like it to run everything at stock , like I said until I get to her better :)

 

however I would like the memory to run at tight timing with stock 400mhz

 

any suggestions? or should I just stick with your last update?

Ok...Change this:

Dram Config

200

enable

2.0

03 to 2

06

02

10

16

02

02

 

You might have to change this:

1.300V

above VID 113%

1.30v

1.70v

2.9V to 3.0 or up to 3.2V

 

for the ram to run at its tightest which is 2-2-2-6 and that is what I have laid out for you.

 

I can recommend reading this: http://i4memory.com/showthread.php?t=327

as a good A64 overclocking primer...there are also a couple guides here at DFI Street...by Thunda and hmmm forgot his name at the moment....just Search for them.

 

Hope that helps :)
