990FX rebuild boot issues

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. Few days ago my 990FX board finally arrived. Seeing how I'm not getting a BD chip any longer I decided to just install my current 965 BE and work with this till I either see a improved version or another generation of chip catches my fancy and I move over.

I've installed 8GB DDR3 1866 G.skill sniper series ram and the board of course.

Everything else has stayed the same. I am able to Post fine, and get into BOIS with ease. I adjust my memory the first time to 1600Mhz which was the recomended speed for the 965 BE. I changed from Power saver mode to Performance, and change the power saver option to disabled.

Booted. System detected all drives, mice, keyboards and USB headset fine. Windows started to load and suddenly blue screen.....No biggie right?

So I back traced my steps. I set power mode to normal, enabled power saving option, set memory freqency to auto, and rebooted...Same thing, all items detected fine, windows begins to boots crash.

From here I did windows repair, said everything was good to go. I went back into BOIS and went with factory default option. Proceeded to reboot...Same situation.

I'm unsure we're to go from here. Maybe a fresh windows? I'm running Win7 64 bit currently.

any suggestions will be nice. Gonna buy me a W7 64 profession well I am away for a bit. Gonna keep it sealed in case I can get this working so I can save myself a few hundreds bucks if possible.

Thanks everyone!

P.S. no OC was attempted. This was fresh from package, to rig, to boot.

Did you change IDE/AHCI settings at all? They can cause BSOD if your OS is one and the BIOS is the other and vice versa.

First thing to try:

Unplug PSU from wall
Remove CMOS battery
Hold power button for ~5 seconds
Replace battery, plug in PSU & boot up.

Also try flashing the board with the latest BIOS.

linkin93 beat me to it
clear cmos settings
remove cmos battery
replace cmos battery after 1 hour
start pc and load optimized system defaults (factory defaults) in BIOS.

Will do. I'll be gone about that long to get the Win7 just in case. So will be perfect!!

You'll probably have trouble running 8GB at 1866MHz. That's one thing BD has over the phenom chips, it supports 1866mhz natively. Which means I might actually be able to run my sticks at their rated speeds of 6-8-6-24 instead of 8-8-8-24

So I waited the 1 hour. I unplugged. Removed battery, reset BOIS to factory. Still getting blue screen at windows login screen. No change.

How do I flush the BOIS?

I just finished clearing the CMOS again. Instead of removing the battery I checked the book and just removed the jumper from Pins 1-2 and moved to 2-3 for 5-10 seconds. Then moved back to 1-2.

I'm repairing windows again as it blue screen just to be safe. And will reboot shortly.

Also changed memory from 1866 to 1066 as I was using DDR2 1066 till today.

Awaiting results!

Otherwise, Possibly heatsink may not be seated properly? And it bsod to prevent damage.
