Problem with EVGA GTS 450: No signal - Page 4

post #31 of 44
You could just give up and reinstall. If you have any valuable data, just run Ubuntu via LiveCD and back up the important stuff. Wipe your hard drive and start over.

well, the computer works, there's just the annoyance of having to press F1 in order to get past the error and boot.

At this point, seeing as the original issue is resolved, I probably should let this topic dies and move over to the air cooling forum.

Oh, then its just a fan problem.

Step 1) Make sure that the fan in question is actually working. If it is, go to step two. If not, tighten the connection between the fan header on the mobo and the connector to the fan. If that doesn't work, buy a new fan and skip to step 3.

Step 2) Go into your bios and go into the Power Tab. Then go into the "Hardware Monitor" menu. You should see:

CPU Fan Speed [xxxxRPM]
Chassis Fan 1/2 Speed [xxxxRPM]
Power Fan Speed [xxxxRPM]

One of those 4 options will probably have [N/A] or something in red lettering indicating a problem. Select that option and change it to "ignored". However, only do this if can verify that all fans are working. Save and exit your changes and reboot. You should boot directly instead of having to press F1 now.

Step 3) Profit

EDIT: Make sure you don't disable the "Q-Fan control". Only set the fan speed sensors to ignored in the "CPU/MB Temperature" section.

Both the CPU and Chassis fan speeds are listed as N/A, should I ignore all three?

Whoo boy... That's not good. Make sure all your fans are running, then ignore all of them. First we'll get the pc to boot properly, then we'll focus on fixing the fans.

Edit: what is your mobos bios revision? Should be at the top right corner of the bios.

Well, I would imagine that They're listed as such because my Case fans are plugged directly into my PSU instead of my mobo, and the CPU fan is plugged into the PWR Fan port.


My bios is v02.61

Ah that makes far more sense. But I have to ask, why is your CPU fan plugged into the pwr fan header?

Because the pwr fan header was the only 3 pin port. Plugging the CPU fan into the CPU header(4 pins) gave me a blue screen and it took me awhile to get the computer booted again.

Did ignoring the fan RPMs work?
