My stock hypertransport and Northbridge settings clash.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I was poking around in my bios recently, and I noticed that m NB frequency was 2200. And that my HT frequency was 2600. Running all stock on the AMD FX-8150 on a MSI 990XA-GD55, Socket-AM3+ motherboard.

I have never noticed any errors or problems stemming from this, but a bit of research I did shows that in pretty much every case, NB must match up with or exceed the HT. So I'm confused and wondering if anyone can enlighten me.

Ugh, I left the Bios without saving changes, as I had made none. And when I did so, my video card appears to no longer be outputting images, all my screens enter sleep the moment I plug them into the computer, and turn on again when I plug them out.

Spent the last two hours trying to fix this. Why do computers have to be such stubborn devices.

Clear the cmos and set whatever the 8150 stock settings are.

No luck with the jumper, it clicked in a very satisfying way, but did not do anything. The manual specificed that this should bring it out of powerdown state and reboot.

As soon as I find a sufficiently bright source of illumination I will attempt to find the Cmos battery. I would rather not detach the motherboard at this time, as it is a pain to put back in.

Alright, I removed the CMOS battery and left it for ten minutes, reinserted and the situation is still this.

The screen is on as long as it is not connected to my desktop, the moment I plug the screen into my desktop, or any screen for that matter they stop searching for a signal and instead just fall asleep.

Be sure to unplug and switch off the powersupply completly, some boards need that. Also yes this problem is common either drop the ht back to nb speeds or keep entering and leaving bios. A lot of the time my board will randomly correct it.

There is currently no way for me to actually go to bios at the moment though, because I can't see the screen.
After removing components one by one I have tentatively determined this to be a very sudden GPU problem.

Luckily, it's on warranty and i'm planning on getting it replaced tommorow or later today.

Try plugging the cable into the onboard video and see if that helps/

As far as I can tell, this mobo has no onboard video.
