EP45-UD3R motherboard hanging on bios

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Recently I just started getting back into GTA IV. I installed the game on my mechanical drive and it was humming along. This is all assuming that I can actually get the game running. Sometimes it hangs up on the copyright verification. I think the disc is on its last leg aswell...

So I installed it and was playing it last night. It all ran smoothly and I was pretty happy with where this was going. I decided to boot the computer up this morning and I discovered that the computer was frozen and that my logitech G500 mouse was not lit up. But my keyobard was. So I started monkeying with different USB slots. It didn't seem to fix it right away but eventually the mouse would turn on. I played a bit of GTA IV and browsed the web. It ran perfectly after that.

This evening I turned the computer on again and it did the same thing. I played a few hours of GTA IV and it ran perfectly. I then watched TV on Windows Media Center and then returned to play GTA IV. During this gameplay I installed Fraps (which was not running) and EVGA precision (which was running) . The computer did something that I have noticed before. It seems to return to 2d clocks and get stuck there. It's happened before and I know a restart usually cures the problem however it blue screened before I can restart it. This is where I notice something is wrong. I restarted the machine and I noticed the machine is hanging on bios. It comes up with the black screen and all the pretty graphics along the side but it took a while for it to detect my 2 hard drives and 1 dvd drive. Then when it started booting it blue screened if I remember correctly. So I was able to get it to boot into windows and decided to do a LinX test. Just to see what would happen. I monitored temps and I sat down and started typing this. It blue screened again and I watched it boot. The first bios did the same thing. It hung at the detection of all my hardware. Then the second post screen did the same thing again. Hanging when looking for my hardware. It then boots into windows and my mouse is currently not on.

So what are your thoughts? I understand this is a tedious post but I didn't want to leave out any details.

Thanks for your thoughts

EDIT: so I decided to do a re-start and now when it is booting it goes from the windows screen right to a black screen and my monitor turns off. I am almost wondering if my SSD is starting to go.

EDIT 2: After a few minutes of it sitting there the welcome screen appears.

I think I would try a CMOS reset.

I did that. Now I'm getting a ''BOOTMGR'' is missing. Press CRTL+ALT+Delete to restart. But my keyboard is dead...

fixed the Bootmgr problem. Turned out to be misconfigured bios. The issue still stands with the system balking to give power to my keyboard and mouse. The machine freezes right after initial startup. I am beginning to wonder if it's a windows or a hardware problem.

What bios version are you running may try a reflash. When it blue screens what is the error code? Is it a USB keyboard and mouse?

Both the keyboard and the mouse are USB. I couldn't catch the BSOD codes because it would flash and before I'd finish reading the code it'd restart. I was able to catch one. It had something to do with nv.dll or nvl.dll. Not 100% sure.

If it were those nv.dll or the other that is referring to the nvida card. I would try uninstalling the EVGA precision what ever that is and probably a clean uninstall the cards drivers and reinstall them..

Alright. I uninstalled EVGA precision last night. So far I have not gotten a single BSOD all day today. So maybe that was the issue. I did multiple restarts though and found that my USB devices were all hanging up. However here is a revelation. I noticed that this started when I had this old WD external USB drive plugged into the computer. I decided to unplug it and now all of my USB devices come on as soon as the desktop appears.

I've been having some problems with this drive having windows recognize it. I use it very sparingly. Though it's weird how it's causing problems. Any suggestions? Could it be a possible driver problem with the controller?

Thank you for the continuing support guys:thumb:


I want to throw this out there aswell. My Gfx card is a BFG and I've stopped upgrading my drivers because I have noticed more and more stability issues. I wonder if precision wasn't really compatible with the older driver. Not really a fan of the newer Precision software anyways.

I would think that your OLD WD DRIVE is just that OLD... You could try and up date your MB/Bios drivers, but who knows with those old drives.. G/L

BTW I a have a UD3P and a Q9550 @ 3.7 GHGZ for the last wot 4 years and she still rocks along unattended... But on the down side it took me about 3 months to get it right in the beginning...
