Dates and times will hold if it's still pouted in to the wall, and the PSU switch isn't off.

Pouted into the wall ???? Yeah, and the psu can give the dud or weak battery a temporary charge, so when its taken out and measured with a VOM, you get a false reading. A battery should be left alone outside of the mobo for hours or a day to get a proper voltage measurement.

Not really charging them. It just that the mobo stands by on power as the PSU stands by while being plugged to the wall.

And yes, these batteries were not recharge-able. They ought to be, since recharge-able batteries have or discharges even with very little or no load at all. You don't want that, neither is acceptable when the the battery has to power the CMOS for months after production,even years to keep the valuable BIOS information.

Are you kidding? They don't use re-chargable batteries? Well thats probably a valid issue with my board then. Battery is original to my purchase of this rev 1.01 board like 4 years ago. LOL New battery incoming TODAY! And I will re-flash the BIOS again upon battery change, etc. Give her a good do-over. thumb.gif

Since Im not at my rig right now, these use standard 2032 batteries right? Not a weird 2016 or something? Gonna grab a new one at the sto on my way home.

Nope, they dont use rechargeable batteries. (there were some 486 mobos that did long ago and they were soldered in place, heh)

They are lithium, 2032's. Four years is a long time to go without replacing them, but it depends on the mobo. I had one socket 7 mobo that would kill them in about 6 months. I replace them before two years whether I need to or not. Its cheap insurance against headaches.

The dead lithium batteries can hold a charge for a while (but at low amperage) like a cheap capacitor. They need to be discharged, but I dont like the idea of shorting them, in case they are still good, heh. Thats why I just let them sit out for a while.

You pretty much nailed them man!! thumb.gif

4 years, hmm rolleyes.gif

Yes, they will act as a capacitor that will hold a small potential difference between their metal plates. But very small in terms of charge (Coulombs) thus for a moment you can detect it to have say 3volts and dies turns to zero after a second.

CPMEE was right. These CMOS Batteries need to be replaced at least a once a year.. They're too cheap to buy in packs. Trouble is, after a year, they will also lose integrity even if unused. redface.gif So yeah, even after 3 months, I will pop up another and replace the one on the motherboard. biggrin.gif

That's odd you're having issues with the CMOS battery i have a computer from 1999 and it still has the original battery and it still works fine

Im pretty sure its at least low on charge, heh. And even in a store, thats way past its shelf life. But yeah, it depends on the mobo. Ive seen some 5 or 6 years old that are fine, but others where the mobo would drain it almost like a flashlight, heh.

i have no idea if it is or not but it is the original battery and it keeps all changes i make. i have seen a MoBo drain one though but it was a faulty Board

Guys you know, those CMOS batteries are VERY easy to misidentify, if you take a magnifying glass to it, there is a CR2032 imprinted on it, when purchasing new battery it is a good idea to make sure you get the battery specified for your motherboard. Just a thought. wheee.gif

by RAM, telling me the first two slots are dual channel 1, and second two would be dual channel 2. Well, CPU-Z is saying with both A slots populated, that they are in single channel mode. Would A1 and B1 be dual channel 1?

And heres the SPD tab to see RAM specs.



EDIT: Heres another after changing RAM slots from A1 and A2 to A1 and B1. Went to dual channel in CPU-Z, oops. lol



But anyway, my rig ran REAL good all day yesterday until randomly it just went black (probably from timing out and monitor turned off) and it never recovered. And continued to not boot. This morning I removed two sticks of RAM, cleared CMOS and used Mem OK to turn on, it cleared, and I loaded my profile and boom, shes working right now. So Im thinking big time its the RAM, but not because its not compatible, dang it worked for AWHILE.

I thinking the RAM is just going bad somehow, or my boards slots are going bad. I only have this one 4x4GB set, so its the only constant unchanged factor while trying to troubleshoot this board. Im gonna get a cheap 2x 2GB kit new and see what goes on.

And that QVL list is whack. I have a R1.01 board, and I want full 1866 speed from my 1866 MOBO and CPU, not 1333. lol

Out of curiosity what does the following say using elevated cmd prompt : winsat mem & winsat cpu -compression
