Dfi Ultra-D.........

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
This is a really annoying problem I'm having with my Ultra-D. This happens every time I reboot my rig. Here are the steps I follow every time I reboot.

1)I fire up my rig. I get a cmos error. So I go in to the bios and change the multi from auto to 11x, the voltages to 1.40v.
2)I save and exit. Boots up into windows fine...... Do what ever I do.
3)Now I decide to reboot my rig.....
4)After it shuts off..... Everything lights up, the fans go, and thats it. Nothing else happens after that, I get a blank screen. So how do I resolve this issue? Of course I go and reset the cmos.....
5)Then I repeat from step one again.

At step 4, the lights go from 4 lights to 3, then back to 4, then it hangs. All 4 diagnose lights are lit, which most likely means its a bios issue(I think).

Well, I'm really a noob at this, and really getting tired with messing with this mobo.. Could It be the power supply? The cmos battery? A corrupted cmos? Or is it that this mobo just doesn't like the combo I currently have?
Oh yea. I got this mobo second handed from this forum. I really don't think its defective, but all signs are pointed there...
Anyways, any idea why this is happening?

Sounds like the MB battery is getting weak.
Usually at about 3v or less it can't retain the CMOS/BIOS changes and resets or has issues producing the data for the system to BOOT properly.

That motherboard is getting rather old now, could be time to change the battery.

Do you have a Microcenter by you...they have them and there price is very low!
Last time I needed one, they had a 3 pack for less than the cost of one at Best Bumbs.

Unfortunately, no. I might have to go around the place to get some, if not, the day after tomorrow.


And, thanks guys! Knowing its the battery now is such a relief!
