Dead motherboard? - Page 2

Did you try something as simple as clearing CMOS? I've fixed problems by doing that.

Also, you could try this:

Issue still existed, I read a post on a forum somewhere where a guy had been on his 3rd board and given up(he was using 1.8 BIOS) and said the board was bricked. He did mention that he removed the RAM and put it in another machine and booted fine. He also put new RAM on the board and it POSTED but the lights remained flashing. With this in mind I recommend this sequence which remedied my problem rather quickly.

1) Disconnect power to the PSU
2) Press reset several times to clear any charge left on the caps
3) Set CMOS jumper to CLEAR position
4) Remove CMOS battery
5) REMOVE all RAM from the DIMMS ( this is the critical step because now the board will not attempt to boot the settings again)
6) Replace the CMOS battery and set the jumper back to the SAVE CMOS position
7) Reconnect power and power on the board
8) The bios failure light should be off now and you should get the normal "no memeory detected" beep sequence.
9) Replace your memory to their respective DIMMS
10) Boot and choose Load optimal settings> reboot> go back to overclocking!!

Same thing happen to my mobo last few days, wouldn't POST just keep repeat the infinite on and off loop. I was frustrated, thinking that's the end of my epic mobo, the all mighty Rampage Extreme x48 legacy just ended in my own hand because I might have bend the mobo too much when installing the MIPS VRM block. But after some research I found out that simply reseating my Q9650 fixed the problem! My REX is now back too life with the oh-sound-so-good no memory beep.
