DFI NF3 250-AL Problem!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just replaced a existing mobo and cpu in my system at home. Same components just different cpu and mobo. Figureed I would fire it up and give it a shot without having to reinstall windows. Well it froze at the desktop and after several attempts it froze each time. I tried to do a repair but either it would freeze during copying files or initializeng install. I tried another cdrom and windows cd but still nothing. My mobo only has one bios available but have not reflashed with it. I was able to run Knoppix 5.0 from cdrom for about 2 hours without a hitch. Everything worked prior to change over, removed nothing from original spot except mobo and cpu(all PCI & AGP cards of course) The hdd is only 2 months old (bought new). Could an faulty ide cable be the culprit? Also CPU temp in BIOS never gets aove 34c. So temp should not be an issue. Any ideals? Any help would be appreciated!

With the new mobo you should do a fresh install of Windooooos. As well as running the new disc from DFI that came with the mobo.

Yea....well, the pc freezes during install (already formatted and attempted fresh install). I can't use DFI cd until windows is loaded.
Also.....my 3400+ from another working system will not even POST on this mobo but the Sempron will. Matter of fact, i am using the 3400+ machine to type this. DFI says it will recognize the 3400+. Could BIOS be screwy from the factory?

Knoppix worked fine for you so I would believe the HDD and cables are ok since it does temp load some files to the HDD. But one never knows for sure, it could be a tempermental cable even still!
Knoppix for the test, good one, I use all the time for diagnostics too
Try swapping the HDD and CD-ROM cable, provided there both the same format.

Check and make sure your case isn't shorting out your mobo, try running it out on it's own. Also check your systems temps in BIOS. If it still doesn't work I'd check your ram with a DOS based memchecker

Everything is running at default. Find it strange about the 3400+ not being recognized.
