EDIT : problem solved(well, figured out anyways)....this mobo has a known "cold boot issue". I read about several others that had the same trouble. No big deal.....I can work with it.
ok here is todays annoying computer problem.......I have the system running fine and tested at the following settings...CPU 1.41v/250 FSB x 11/250MHz RAM 3-3-2-5-1T@2.8v....... if I shut the system down completely(not-restart) and then try to restart it won't post at those settings, however if I go to bios and set everything the same except lower the FSB to 245 it posts then if I immediately go back to bios and up it to 250 it posts and runs fine.
Any ideas why this would be, or has anyone ever experienced a similar situation?
to answer a couple possible questions you may ask me ahead of time.......the RAM passes memtest @ 260MHz...the cpu passes S&M although the max temp is a little high(67c)
thanks for taking the time to read my post
one thing right after another....that's life I guess.Edited by ny_driver - 1/22/10 at 7:20pm
