DS3L is giving me a heart attack!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Got the F8f beta BIOS off the site, flashed it, it said Copy Failure. Then it reboots and now wont post but goes into a reboot cycle.

WHY MUST GOD DO THIS TO ME!?

What must I do?

This happened to me with my P5k deluxe.. All I can suggest is to leave the motherboard cd in the drive, maybe it will do a recovery of the bios or something, I dont know. If it doesnt even get that far, pull out the cmos battery and move the jumper and try it for different intervals... 30 seconds, 10 minutes, an hour, overnight.... to try to get the bios to clear. Most probably you got the bios wiped, and its gonna need an RMA. Sorry to hear you're having the problem, I feel ya.

Yeah man based on what you said I'd bet a dollar your BIOS got wiped.

Left the battery out and the CMOS jumper in the "Clear" position for over a few minutes and its doing the same thing. Should I try it overnight or is it pretty much dead?

Okay trying this overnight. SIGH. No gaming for a few weeks for me. How long does an RMA take?

The battery just clears the CMOS, not your BIOS. You are screwed my friend. Unless you can figure out a way to flash it again, I don't know what to tell you.

Ha. With gigabyte you'll be lucky if it doesn't take a month or two. And don't forget you HAVE to have the cpu socket cover in order to RMA it. Err in fact. I don't even think gigabyte serviced boards bought outside of north america. You'll have to try to get a replacement board from wherever you bought it.

I'm sorry to hear about the dead board man

I've kept the cover and I'm sure I get 1 year warranty with the place I bought it from. One or two MONTHS!? You're joking right?

I was going to hold out till the HD4850 came out but I might just go with nvidia and be done with it.

With an E2160 how would the P5N-E SLI go?
