problems with a8n32 sli deluxe bios

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi i need some help with my mobos bios. Ok this is what happened.
first i was stupid enough not to use the AIbooster to overclock my memory. so i went in to the bios and did some changes with the memory setting and restarted it. now all i get is blank screen. my specs are
Asus A8N32 Sli deluxe mobo, AMD athlon 64 FX 55, 2 GB corsair XMS memroy, 7900GTX EVGA card, 500 watt Thermaltake psu, Antec 900 gaming ATX tower, one dvd/cd drive and one cd drive. and i use a antec CPU cooling fan/heatsink.
Everything else worked fine before i tried to overclock my memory. i used AIbooster to overclock my processor to 2.8 and thats what it is on now.
but now every time i turn on the comp all i get is no signal on the monitor. i see all my components working. CPU fan is led up and running fine, my video card fan is working, when i insert a cd in my drive i see that its loading or running and even the harddrive running.
I took it to the technicians but they were unable to fix it. i tried removing the CMOS battery and left it outside for a day and still the bios didnt go back to default settings. if only i get the loading screen then i could go back and restore it but i cant. first time i saw that it wanted the asus bios file cd and asked me to insert it. i did and it said it was deleting it and the process was complete. then it said to restart the comp. i did but still blank screen. can anyone please help me with this. thank you

Who do you mean when you say "the technicians"?

Even though I have heard people say they have needed to leave it out over night, personally I have never needed to leave the battery out more than 15 seconds (ever). Guess I'm just lucky!

Did you try switching the "RTC RAM (aka CLRTC) jumper" on the mobo when you took the battery out? This is basically your "clear CMOS jumper". It is located just to the right of the battery. That is what will clear your current system setup parameters.

Here is how you should go about it (taken from the Asus manual):

Quote:
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the onboard battery.
3. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
4. Reinstall the battery.
5. Plug the power cord (back in) and turn ON the computer.
6. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to re-enter data.
Not sure if your pins are numbered, but (if your socket is top & slots are bottom) the left pin is #1, middle pin is #2, right pin is #3.

If that doesn't work, try doing it all again. Only this time when the jumper is on pins 2-3, plug the power cord back in and flip the switch to the "ON" position (if your power supply has a switch, that is). If you do this method, make sure the little green light on the mobo lights up first for about 10 seconds, then unplug the PSU. Move back to pins 1-2, reinstall the battery, then try to boot it up.

Frankly, if that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas. Maybe try to boot another video card, if possible (just to rule it out of the equasion). Let us know if it doesn't work. Someone else here might be able to help if that doesn't.
