evga 750i sli ftw board

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so i have an old evga 750i sli ftw board. the thing USED to run great, but as i was messing around with some (easy) overclocking tonight, after a restart i got a long continuous beep. i've tried pulling the cmos battery, i've used the onboard cmos clear, i've changed out the ram, i've taken out all my pci cards, etc. nothings working. any ideas of whats going on or what i could do to fix it?

Yeah, this happened to my MSI 880GM-E41 two days ago. I just decided to replace it, since It wasn't worth my time anymore. But I'm sure after a while it can just randomly go back to it's old self. Try pulling out the board and running it outside the case.

Is it asking for a BIOS File? My MSI board did this.

I ended up buying myself a Asus M4N75TD Motherboard. (It uses a 750a Chipset).

Also, 750i stands for the 750 intel chipset, and the 750a stands for the 750 AMD chipset.

no it's not even asking for anything. i can't even get it to post, in or out of the box (its been out of the case for over an hour so i could actually try to diagnose the problem.) I'm thinking of just contacting evga and seeing if i can get it replaced since it's still under warranty.

Sadly its done, I believe its a bad bios chip but cant be 100% certain. Had it happen to 2 750i FTW's, when the 3rd came back from RMA I sold it...

Send them an RMA ticket, tell them you have tried different Ram, CPU's and Video cards that all work on another board but not on the 750i. That should be enough information to have them send you the RMA #.
If you dont tell them that you will be exchanging emails with them as they try to get you to put in a different cpu, ram and video cards...
After that its a pretty quick turn around time to get the new board in.

If you have the spare CPU, Ram or card laying around to try I suggest trying them before sending it in. Nothing worse than RMA'n a board only to get it back and realize it was the ram...
