ASRock Z68 Discussion/Owners Club - Page 66

I guess I can finally say I'm a member of the club now? biggrin.gif

Everything is working great, finally got my Windows completely finished late last night with all the 100+ Windows Updates it forced on me, plus SP1. Then got a few other apps finally reinstalled and back up and running great.

Only thing thats still wonky though, is the UEFI BIOS.

I still can not access it, as every time I do, it just rapidly jumps through its pages as though someone were holding down the right arrow key on the keyboard.

It was working fine after I initially installed the board and first started configuring the BIOS.

But then once I started installing the ASRock Z68 Drivers in Windows, the UEFI went berserk, and continues to behave the same now everytime I try to access it!

Would you guys suggest that I perhaps try clearing the CMOS and start over configuring the BIOS; or is there perhaps some unknown fluke with my Logitech G110 keyboard?

Lastly, how can I find out what version BIOS the Board has? I don't see any version number anywhere...

Clearing the CMOS is a good place to start. A program called CPU-Z will give your your BIOS version among other things..

Hmmm... my CPU-z might need to be updated then, as I do have an older version...

Just the CPU and Caches tab has info on them...

The Motherboard tab and the RMA tab are all greyed out with no info on them...

I'll check that when I get home tonight and try clearing the CMOS.

Concerning the BIOS I'd load up the ASRock Extreme Tuning utility, should find that info there too. As for the wonkiness, if updating the BIOS doesn't work might try taking out your input devices and determining if one or the other is making it go crazy; failing that I'd uninstall the drivers you put in and reinstall them, or updated drivers if possible, see how that goes.

I've had my share of craziness over the past two weeks but nothing insurmountable. Must say, and this is no exageration, that the EXT3/GEN3 has the potential to be the best bang for the buck in mobo history... rockin' 4.8GHz right now with a 49 multi by 98 bclk, but temps are pretty high -open case- and I think I can still bring the voltage down some -should lessen the temps, which hit an alarming 90+C at one point axesmiley.png -. If you're wondering just how high I got this thing to load, I had a bclk of 96 and multi of 53... which came out to be 5.08GHz. No, stability was shot after a couple minutes and reset itself, but not after ripping through a couple iterations of SuperPI. 4.8 is my target speed though, will keep y'all posted. thumb.gif

I got around the problem by taking the ASrock installation CD out, before rebooting the system. Then it goes back into Windows, and when I put the ASRock CD back in at that point, it finished installing everything else. I think, the initial problem is that I had the BIOS set to boot off the CD Drive so I could run my Windows installation earlier.
Unfortunately, by BIOS is still going berserk when I go into it now. Racing through each of the pages as though someone were holding down an Arrow Key on the keyboard, and there is nothing I can do inside it.
Other then that, Windows is working just fine!
However, I did find that the ASRock CD installed something called Zynga Games. I don't want it, and can't find a way to get rid of it, as there is no uninstal option for it. Its not on my menu, not in my installed programs list, and there is nothing on the CD to uninstall it. I am thinking it installed piggyback off one of the other Utilities that came from the CD, though I'm not sure.
I accidentally selected INSTALL ALL, from the ASRock CD because that was an option on the Drivers window, but it apparently installed EVERYTHING, off the CD... including all the Untilities and Software Apps that were on it. I am in the process of uninstalling some of the ones I don't want... like the Norton stuff. I prefer Microsoft Security Essentials. But what other "utilities" are not worth it, that I should remove? I've read that people like this XFast LAN thing, but it keeps popping up on my screen every time I boot, and not sure how to make it not keep popping up like that...

i had an issue w/ my wireless kb when i was doing a new install, so when i reformatted I used an older usb wired kb and after all my updates my wireless had no problems. i would try to completely remove the wireless out of the equation till you get it all hashed out.

I have resolved the BIOS issue.

It had nothing to do with the keyboard...

To be perfectly honest, I still do not know why it does it; but I've just sat here for an hour doing trial and error/process of elimination...

The BIOS ... ONLY, goes wonky, after I disable "IGD Multi-Monitor" under the "Advanced/North Bridge Configuration" located within the "Advanced" page.

Only after I set that to "disable" and then save and exit, then the BIOS goes all wonky.

If I make any other changes, and do save/exit, then the BIOS remains fine and I never have problems with it. But if I disable the IGD Multi-Monitor at any point and save changes, then the next time I enter the BIOS then its all wonky and rapidly jumping through the pages as though an arrow key on the keyboard is stuck.

Its strange, but thats whats doing it!

So I guess I can live with leaving that set to Enabled.

Reset the CMOS... I can use a USB 2.0 port to get into BIOS. Load back my settings... Now I can't get back into the BIOS with USB 2.0... what the heck! mad.gif

Don't you just love banging your head on the table for hour's trying to figure out what is causing this? Glad you figured this out as other member's who might run into the same problem can look back on this.

Having some issues with my Vdroop. I have my voltage set to 1.390 in BIOS but in windows, idle the voltage goes as low as 1.376 and sometimes even 1.368. Under load, voltage is fine - 1.388 and up - computer is ALWAYS stable at load, problem is when it's idle or doing light usage like a steam download, sometimes it will bsod. I have my LLC set to level 1. Anything else and the vdroop gets way worse.
