Uped Multiplier Vid Cards stopped working - Page 2

I unplugged the DVI cables to see if that was an issue. at that point i pressed the power button once and it shut down like normal, heard the shutdown chime and then pc powered off.

I'm going to follow your advice and go check out the local store and see what kind of return policy they have. I know most electronics have the 30 day return no questions asked. I'm in the military and stationed in South Korea so the only place i have to chose from to buy is the military exchange and there rules for returning could be different than best buys or fry's.

If you have any other ideas shoot them at me, i'm trying my best not to RMA the board since it takes 10+ days to get mail out here. Thanks again.
Two things to rule out either motherboard or 2 Asus, most likely motherboard.

1. Test the Asus in another system.
2. Test the board with another card.

If what I thought was correct, both Asus will work in another system and the board will work with another card. If so, return the motherboard, there is nothing else to fix at a user-level.

I have had a similar situatian, ended up with 4 identical cards. Because I tested the board with different cards and it worked which lead me to conclude the first 2 cards were defect. Bought another 2 cards, it didn't work with the board.

Stay safe there.

by hard reset he means you cleared your cmos. this is where your bios settings are stored. install only 1 vid card after clearing the cmos again. boot up and see if you can get into windows. if you can get into windows, shutdown and install second vid card. your cpu multi has nothing to do with your ram btw. next time just change your memory profile from normal/standard to xmp. this should set the ram specs automatically

Thanks for the info on hard reset. I have tried one card at a time clearing cmos after each, forgot to mention it. The only reason i didn't use the EPP (AMD's version of XMP) is because the timings wernt coming back right. So after ready a post on the G.skill forum that had my board with the same RAM i used his settings which worked. I had to increase the FSB and lower multiplier to keep stock CPU. After testing the RAM for a day i decided to try to overclock. When i uped the multiplier by .5 is when the video cards stopped working. I have never failed POST other than the boot right after i clear CMOS. I just never get video which is extremly weird.

I talked to the korean guy on post that owns a computer shop but didn't get the warm and fuzzy that he understood what i was asking. So i think i'm going to hit the store on the way home and pick up the cheapest video card they have in stock and give it a try with my board. If it works ill try my cards again if not i know for sure that its the board and ill go ahead and RMA it back to newegg.

You just get the same MB back or get another one?

they might fix your board n send you it back or give u a refurbished one...

sometimes they'll give you a new one.

Ok this is what i did last night.

On my way home i picked up a Nvidia Geforce 210 lol. It was the cheapest one they had and it was still 79.99.

I get home slap it in my computer.... BAM i have video! *** over lol. So i get into windows i check CPUz and it still says my ram is set at the 1866 setting instead of 1600. I boot into bios to check the settings and they are at the fail safe defaults. I chose Optimize settings boot into windows again check CPUz and it was correct. So i think maybe that reset something on the MB. before i turn off the computer i completely remove the ATI drivers and software. I shut down the computer and slap in one of my 4850s. When i boot it up i get the same symptoms. It passes POST and boots into windows but never displays any video. I tried both video cards and both PCEe ports and got nothing.

Think i should try my two 4850's in another machine?

I'm probably going to order a new video card, newegg has a good deal on a MSI 560GTX atm.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

If you have a computer at work, try both Asus there. Probably both are fine. You should RMA the board and buying another graphics card will not solve the motherboard issue. The board got corrupted, the only way to fix it is to replace the EEPROM chips.

If you can not return the Geforce you just bought maybe could try as PhysX card later.

I think i will do that. I don't want to buy a new card just for the MB to do the same thing again to a new card. I'm going to look back when i bought the cards too. I might still be under some type of warranty.

I gave my 4850's to a buddy at work to slap in his machine to give them a try.

If the cards don't work think i should still RMA the board?

In either case, the board was corrupted and needs to RMA. I am pretty sure both the Asus cards are fine. Let's you buddy to try it out and see.

If you really like a multi-gpu setup why don't turn to Intel platform?
