Uh oh, dead GA-965P-DS3?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was trying to OC my sys and i was trying several diff settings. After each failed attempt the sys tem would shut off, and reboot a few times then default, everything is good...

I take my e6600 to 1.35V rather than stock 1.325V and raise ram voltage by
.2V, bring the FSB to like 350FSB and the ram is at like a 2.66 divider. f10, Y, it shuts off after a few secs and then continues to reboot in excess of 10 times!

I unplug it, leave it for a sec(thinking NP just reset bios), doesnt work, i go through the typical pull out battery, do the cmos clear jumper thing nothing works. But the wierd thing is that if i can short the cmos jumper at just the right time during one of the reboots the screen comes to life say loading bios image from HDD. It never does...

this is the machine in my specs...

i'm guessing i fuxord the bios chip bad. is there neway to recover the bios and let it boot again or did i blow a resistor or somthing. If im smooth about it i can prob RMA it "agian" back to newegg...

im assuming the GPU isnt fried cuz at the right moment of the cmos jumper short it will display that msg, and i dont think the cpu is bad for the same reason, im betting and praying i fried a $150 mobo rather than a $ 300CPU, $250 GPU, or $250 mem.

I'm not too upset though cuz i wanted to upgrade to a 680i mobo neway 'scept my budget wasnt quite ready for it yet, and i was trying to save for a ps3 christmas time or early 07.

i would actually try (if you can) buyin the same Mobo from somewhere local, pull out the bios chip, and drop it in yours, turn it on, and CAREFULLY pull it back out running (yes running) and drop yours back in once your in the bios already
i've done it a few times, works fine so long as your careful. then take the board you just bought back, and say your dad something decided not to upgrade.

that would be a good idea but i cant find the bios chip(looking for somesort of removable chip) im geussing its solderd in. Its ok though, newegg looks like they're taking it for a second RMA...

I was thinking about buying one locally and just swapping out the new board for the old one and return it saying it was defective(evil, i kno, lol) but i would only have gotton store credt most likly neways...

thx though

I had my other "back-up" PC (p4C x800gto 2gB ram, nice for a back-up PC) running music off of fragfm.co.uk (yeah i kno *** is a yank doing listening to a brit station, jk lol) during this whole ordeal, right. Well i go it my dad's office on the other side of the house to talk to him abount my dead mobo and stuff. I get back to my office after i do the RMA off my laptop i grabbed from my bedroom and my back-up PC has rebooted by itself and after i log back in it says: system has recoverd from serious error. I send in the error report and it says that it was a hardware falure, CPU/ram/psu/etc.

OMG tech hates me this morning!

GAH!
