Alright, I am running memtest86, test #5, then I will run the next test you suggested. I'll check out the videocard thing, but I doubt any changes I can make because I can't change the BIOS. As far as the tool, I don't remeber getting one, I'll check all the packaging. Ahh good thing you told me not to touch the contacts, why are they that sensitive?

you found that.... now find the "proper way to flash your bios" at the street and also "the proper way to clear your cmos"

All I did was make sure was go into the bios from a cleared cmos state and load optimized defaults....then flashed the 704-2bta bios...

then on the reboot I got the bad checksum error on the post screen....

I shut the pc off...removed the power cord from the psu...after the board stand-by LED went off...I moved the cmos jumper to clear...waited about 5 minutes and put it back to run...put the power cord back in and turned the psu on...when the stand-by led lit I booted the rig and went into bios...again loaded optimised defaults and proceeded to flash the bios again with the same...and repeated the steps earlier... after the second cmos clear...I went into the bios and again loaded optized defaults and set the bios up and rebooted....

now if you still get the cmos error...check the post screen and make sure the bios actually flashed...

then from there clear the cmos over night....18hr clear...

Alright I am doing that right now! I cleared the cmos longer than normal and it told me something different, that I was running in safe mode! that may be a good thing, I set to optimized defalts and I couldn't reboot, so now I resetting the cmos again and this time I am going to reflash the BIOS, am I right? and then load optimized defalts and if that don't work then a 18 clear. What to do if that doesn't work? I Also emailed tech support, but I know I will get my emial returned in a week.

Well, it didn't work, after a BIOS flash I can restart, but when I load optimized defalts I still can't restart, so I am doing an 18 hour clear. If that do'nt work I bet DFI will tell me to send it to them. When I have to send it to them is it at my cost? It better not be, because its not my fault that it doesn't work. Wish the weekend was longer, I have school tomorrow

You will have to pay to send it to them.

If your lucky, and you poke them about it, they may reimburse you for the shipping cost.
