Possible dead motherboard?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, so my sig-rig's motherboard is seeming to have issues. I booted up just fine this morning, got on internet, then played a game, and as usual it seemed to lock up from the "Hypertransport sync flood error" once again. So, this time I went into the BIOS and upped the CPU-NB voltage a little. It booted fine. Then, since I remembered that the AMD's IMC had a max of 2.35V's for the RAM, so I decided to go to 1.75V's for CAS 5, with the added on timings in my sig. CMOS Cheksum error. Okay.

So, me being my stupid self, I went to 1.8V's. It froze @ the BIOS Logo (Obviously MSI's Board Logo, with the model #) so, I rebooted. Everything checked out, and I set it back to CAS 6 @ 1.7V's. Now the board won't even boot.

I tried removing my LAN Card, Video Card, Switching RAM In the different slots, tried using one stick of RAM, etc. All of the capacitors are fine. No burn marks or anything. Tried pulling ths CMOS Battery out for half an hour, tried re-setting the CMOS Jumper.

All it does is request a BIOS File from USB, and I don't have a BIOS file at all.

Everytime it requested a BIOS file, I rebooted and all was fine. I don't know what the hell is going on.

PLEASE, PLEASE, Help. this is my only machine I have and I need it. xD

most likely your lower mid range board has had slow degredation from having voltage increases and overclocking.

The type of board u have isn't really meant for more than 400 MHZ increase, running it at 4.0 GHZ has probably hurt it more than anything.

In the future, i need a board with proper vram/mosfet cooling such as this



if u can't afford an expensive motherboard, use a solution like the Antec Spot Cool to keep the Northbridge and Mosfet's cool.

I was using a 2000K RPM 80MM Fan over the VRM's. Nothing wrong here. It's what the RAM Voltage did to "brick the BIOS' essencially. I'm just replacing the motherboard Itself, since I tested everything else.
