I was born and raised in Puerto Rico....been living in South Carolina for 5 years now.... Let me know if you need any tips on where to go visit or eat!! i can tell you where the best places are for everything thumb.gif




also cant you RMA them? they usually take weeks to come back....so the vacation might kill some of that time!

I wont be one of the people that RMA user-end mistakes like bad wiring in the house. That said, I was pretty straight forward with ASUS on the video card, and they are going to help me out and try to fix it, but I am prepared that it might not happen. Upon further investigation, it appears that not all is lost with my projector either. The thing sprung back to life this morning when I turned it on, its not accepting HDMI input, but it will take the old 3 prong "COMPONENT IN", so it will be a matter of the proper adapters, and I will be back in business. The mobo, I just don't care to deal with ASRock, they have lost me as a customer when I called and told them the situation. They essentially told me to get stuffed, so yeah...going after a gigabyte or an ASUS. Customer Service is huge for me, and I would rather take a slightly more expensive or lesser overall quality item if I know the company stands behind the product, and ASRock just doenst seem to do that.

Thanks for the offer, my wife is Puerto Rican, so we are good! She has family there, and we will be bouncing between San Juan where my wife will be working during the weeks, and Ponce where most of her family lives, they also have a house by Parguera that I am looking forward to spending some time at!

Hey guys,
I need some help. Here’s my story:

I’ve been running an i5 2500k on a z68 extreme 3 Gen 3 w/16GB Corsair 1600 and an older 9800GT. I’ve had it for 7-8 months running at 4.1GHz on stock intel air with no issues (I had previously only adjusted the ratio to 41, leaving everything else on default). Fast forward, I’ve recently built a new i7 3770k rig for my sister using this guide here (very handy) and thought I could do more to lower my temps. I bought a zalman lq310 for $30 AR and installed it this weekend.

So, upon booting up, I went straight to BIOS and followed the guide like I did on the i7 using the initial settings except I started with the ratio at 41 which is where I had been running it. Save BIOS and attempt to boot. As soon as the Windows logo comes up and the spinning colored circles appear (Win7), a very fast BSOD and reboot. So, back to BIOS and step down the ratio by -1, reboot, BSOD, rinse & repeat…So, I reset to defaults on the board, same BSOD. Clear CMOS, BSOD.

So, I go into windows repair and it says it’s unable to repair. At this point, I’m thinking there’s an issue with the Windows files so I restore the HDD using Windows Home Server to an earlier backup (had to do this in another computer as WHS would not find the proper drivers for the NIC). Re-install restored HDD, same thing, BSOD. Finally was able to get it to stop restarting and photograph the screen.



Also, at this point, I re-ran the startup repair and found this error at the end of the unable to repair message: Root Cause Found: A patch is preventing the system from starting. Error code = 0x490



I tried running CHKDSK /F but that would not work (NTFS does not allow message). Again, since I’ve restored to an earlier image, I would imagine any MBR issues would be gone. I also verified that the SATA was set to IDE.

Note: I did restart my pc a few times while torn apart just to make sure the water pump was working & not leaking (I forgot to unplug the HDD so it probably had a few restarts during windows boot).

After sleeping on it (fitfully, I might add), I'm thinking of trying to install windows on an old hard drive from scratch and see if it boots OK tonight, and if so, I would think that maybe my HDD has issues? If it doesn't, then I'm thinking there might be a hardware issue on the MB?

Any thoughts? All help is greatly appreciated.

Bug Check 0x7B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

"This bug check indicates that the Microsoft Windows operating system has lost access to the system partition during startup."

Points to the HDD.

What kind of HDD is it? It should probably be set to ACHI

Just a questiona bout my temps on my cpu.
im, not sure if i mounted or applied thermal paste on my noctua d14 unevenly.

1st and 4th cores are usually low ad are the same.

2nd and 3rd cores are high and are the same.

example. 69, 75, 75, 69.

is this normal?

or should i try remounting cooler or reapplying thermal paste

It is a WD 500GB SATA 3 6Gbps, non-RAID. I didn't have my manual handy when I restored the BIOS to defaults after the cooler installation and I read elsewhere that "ACHI was for RAID, use IDE for non-RAID". I thought that sounded kinda strange, since it was a SATA drive, but didn't think about it again until you just mentioned it. I hope that's all it is. While I'll be glad to not have to spend more money or RMA anything, I'll be kicking myself for restoring 9-days ago which was after about 3/4 of a days' worth of software updates & installs done just a couple days ago....

Thanks for the suggestion.

Yea man ACHI isn't just for RAID. IDE is for the older style hard drives. I'm pretty damn sure that if you just simply go into the BIOS and switch it you it will boot right up. Let me know how it goes. I no longer have my AsRock, but I'm happy to hang around and help.
