DS3L is giving me a heart attack! - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Why not just take/send the mobo back to who you bought it off of. May only take a couple of days.

That's the plan of attack. But if it will take a month or so then I really can't wait that long

On a more joyous note: 2,000 POSTS!

Just get a cheap ECS or ASRock. Then when you're done with it and have your new DS3L just sell it on ebay (the ECS board not the DS3L). Besides it may even not take 2months if you go to the retailer rather than gigabyte.

EDIT: Grats on the 2000 posts

Wait, wait.

I remember reading somewhere that a person failed to flash his BIOS, he called up to his motherboard's manufacture, and they sent him a new BIOS chip to replace with his current one.

I would call them up and ask them about this first.

That MB has a hard soldered CMOS chip and I don't think there is a recovery program...

OP: Do reread your manual to be sure if there is a BIOS recovery method though!

I'll ask a quick question here since I don't want to make another thread. Is there a disadvantage to buying a generic graphics card? I'm getting a 9600GT for $172 AUD which is a pretty good deal. I think I'm bent on the P5N-E SLI as well.

Not really - I've never really had problems with cheap brands. Their support/warranty will probably be significantly worse. Also they may possibly not overclock as well or may be slightly more unreliable due to looser QC or not following nVidias reference design as well as others. But That does look a good deal for outside USA, so you may as well go for it
What brand is it?
