Please help: Emergency

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
I had just gotten my system stable at 4.8ghz (Ran IBT, Prime95 12 hours, etc). Everything was great. I decided to try my XFX HD6950 2GB one more time to see if it would work under the new 11.10 driver (it had kept crashing applications like it was a dud so I was about to return it). I try it one more time, it keeps crashing applications. I take it out, replace it with the Twin Frozr II 6870 I have. I have been swapping these several times in the past week with no issues.

This time...

I put my 6870 back in and I notice now it is having problems too (It never had problems before). My display all of a sudden is going bonkers (Splitting screens, lines, artifacting). I figure it's not seated well enough. I re-seat it 3 times. Same crazy stuff is happening.

I try seating it in another GPU slot (The next blue one below). I boot the machine... BSOD.

So I put it back in the original slot. I start my computer and it's BSOD'ing/telling me to launch startup repair. I go into my BIOS and I notice EVERYTHING IS COMPLETELY RESET???? All of my overclocking options are reset, it's like the CMOS was reset by swapping my GPUs??????

I tried doing a System Restore to a few days ago and it says "Successfully completed System Restore" but when it restarts the BIOS is still at default and it won't boot into Windows (Windows logo comes up and it just keeps rebooting).

How could all of this happen just by swapping GPU's/slots??

One of the BSOD's said something like "Please check for viruses or make sure that your hard drives are working correclty"

Possibly a silly question but did you unplug your machine before swapping the parts?

Just take a deep breath dude! You will get it sorted.

Just changing PCI-E slots wont clear your bios. Check that your CMOS battery is ok.

You may have to do a clean install of Windows 7 to get up and running. Sorry thats why you keep backups.

You know... I know I turned the "On/Off" switch to off... but there is a possibility one of the times swapping the GPU's that I did not remove the actual power plug.

Clear your CMOS.
Run everything at stock.
Re-install Winblows.

Also, make sure everything is connected good.

Chill out~
Panicking and over reacting isn't going to get you anywhere.
Re-insert your RAM too.

I'm not going to vomit or die, it was a figure of speech. I had just gotten everything set up after weeks of tweaking, and then everything randomly gets ruined. No need to kick someone when they're down.

The BIOS settings and everything went haywire when I put my GPU in that other GPU slot. Wonder how this could have set everything awry.

When you set the "On/Off" switch to off did you make sure there was no leftover power in your motherboard? Have you flashed your card(s)? Have you replaced the CMOS battery? Have you tested your RAM in a different computer? Sorry about all these questions but it will help future replies.
