double boot... wtf!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
yes, you've read the title right, i have double boot problem, no dual boot.


since i got this mobo i had all kinds of problems, weirder and weirder every time, but this one take the cake.

every time i boot or i reboot, it will do so two times. i press the power button, everything go well, the computer does his thing, get to windows, finish starting the little stuff i have on startup (AVG and logitech software) and... woops, everything turn black and i'm back to the BIOS startup screen (no beep though). then it does the same routine as usual, get to windows like the first time and everything is running fine, like nothing happened.

this is not an overclock problem, because it's doing it even when i'm not overclocked. i tweaked windows a little, but i can't remember what exactly because it was a while ago and i didn't format and reinstalled windows since the new mobo. i can't remember when this started. i do not have the latest BIOS because, for some reason it won't let me overclock at all. but since it's a BETA bios, this may be the problem. i don't remember if it was doing it with the first bios version available.

i'm thinking this is a problem with the CPU (2 boot, 2 cores ) and maybe i will not have this problem when i buy my core 2 duo, i dunno. i just wanted to share my weird story.

yep thats wierd .. i think its something with the matrix better check to make sure all the doors are where they are supposed to be.. also what happons when ya try to boot into safe mode does it give ya the same deal.. i wouldnt use a beta bios.. go back to the other one .. if i were you i would clean out all the old drivers and all the old bs you dont need from the old motherboard.. i cant remember which faq it was but there was a good one might of been an enterprize or a ropey faq.. talked about how to show unused items in the device manager.. you would be suprized at how much stuff is int here.. and id go through and delete all of them that might help with some problems.. good luck.. if all else fails.. throw a freash format and install on it..

when i bought that board, i formatted the HD and did a fresh install.

maybe i should go back to the 1rst bios version, but i think i had some trouble with my temp reading with it, that's why i'm sticking to the beta.

i'll have to do some test if i ever get the time

I'd flash the BIOS back to the original version and reboot just to see if the problem goes away...if it does, then you know what it is...Then, you can flash the other BIOS knowing that you have this problem...

Hope this helps

Sounds like someone's been tweaking Windows a bit too much

that may be it


thw weird thing is i did almost the same tweaks as before, and never had that problem.

no i just started my rig... wouldn't post anything. pressed the reset button and anything went as smooth as ever... and no double boot. i started the rig 3-4 times in a row yesterday, double boot everytime.

damn computers, can't live with them, can't live without them

Did you set a restore point before your tweaks? Be a good way to troubleshoot if it's the BIOS or the tweaks you did.

Flash the BIOS back to the original, if it still does it then restore Windows back to a good configuration and see if it's fixed. If so, flash your BIOS to the beta and try again.....if everything is fine again then you know it was something you tweaked and your back up and running.

That's women. With computers it's more like "Can't live without them. Period"
