post #2971 of 12343
Well, here is where I'm at. I tested all rails and both PSU outputs..Everything comes out ok. Everything is over it's standard voltage (ie 12.25v). I replaced the CMOS battery. I have swapped out multiple videocards, ram and tried different configs. If I reset the CMOS jumper, the bios "may" post. When it does it gives me a "Checksum error-Defaults loaded". If I press f1 and continue the bios disappears and the monitor shuts off. If I enter the bios, not matter what I do whether is be set defaults or make changes, when I save and exit, or discard and exit the bios will not repost. I wiould have to clear cmos again. So even with loaded defaults it will not repost until a CMOS clear, which even sometimes doesn't work. I have let the system run for an hour in the bios just to make sure even with that running it was stable. Mem test is ok and reads the ram test past, no other errors given. When the bios doesnt post there are no beeps for warnings. I'm at a loss...

If your CMOS battery is bad your bios will not be able to save the settings. Another thing you may want to try is to reflash your bios after you know for sure your battery is good. The checksum error occurs when the bios settings were not completely saved into the CMOS. This can happen from a bad battery or from a bad bios flash.

One thing to consider. After you clear your cmos jumper and go into bios and save your settings. If at the next post screen you get the bios check sum error then hit the Del key and go back to the bios screen and as soon as your in the bios hit the F10 key and say yes to save settings. Then next time it posts which should be immediately you should be rid of the bios check sum error.

let us know how it goes.

N2Gaming, great suggestions

Dougw133, just to clarify but have you also tested with just the Thermaltake power supply and one video card? I know this suggestion sounds strange but I am always hesitant when it comes to running two power supplies.

Good luck

Thlnk3r: He did test with only one and still no go. As N2G said It sounds like a bios issue. Make sure everything is at stock put in only the minium aka 1 stick ram, 1 HD, 1 GPU, and do some bios swapping. One of them should work. lol

Yes at least one should work. Heck they all should work.

Silly question but does any one know if he has tried to do the reset button after not posting?

eclipse good suggestion about 1 stick of ram, even though he has mentioned the ram passing memtest.

I would try that one stick of ram in the slot closest to the cpu for starters and work my way out from there if you get no luck.

From my experience though. Either the check sum error is not being cleared out properly and his last bios flash did not take all the way due to some kind of problem. That problem has yet to be determined.

Another thing to consider is that the BIOS CMOS chip on the board in question may have been damaged during a flash in which case no matter what is done will not help the situation any. Only an RMA at that point would rectify the situation. I have had one check sum error on the mobo that I am testing atm and that was after I made some bad ram settings that would not post. I have not seen that check sum error since and have not had any problems since. I am running BIOS Ver. 2205

Wow..Thanks for the slew of info...Unfortunately! I can say yes to all questions. Have tried ONE video card...Have tried one ram, one hdd, etc...I have tried hitting the rest button after the no pst..I have at the checksum error screen, gone into the bios and saved the settings, but the reboot doesn't post. Before I even tried overclocking either of my CPU's I flashed the bios 1 week ago to 2207...I will try to flash to 2208 and report back. Once again thanks! Alot!

well if 2208 don't work for you then I'd say try to go back to 2001 or 2101. I have one board on 2101 and this one that I'm benching atm uin the garage on 2205. This was flashed by ASUS before they returned it to me.

I would have to sadly say that if for some reason none of the bios flashes fix your problem then you may have a defective mobo. either the CMOS chip has been electrically damaged or the circuits that supply power to the bios or other major componants is defecting maybe something that supplies power to the cpu. You mentioned you were able to use the mobo before trying the Phenom x4 9950BE. Then you used the x4 w/mild overclocking and that is when you started noticing problems. Did you mention that your temps seems high as well. If this is the case you may need to call ASUS for a RMA.

Oh boy...Here's the deal. I ran the phenom in the board all winter...2 months ago popped the FX-62 back in because the phenom just ran too hot during FSX...The crappy thing is, is that this board is an "RMA Board" Asus sent to me last summer...I wonder if they'd do it again...

As long as your mobo does not have any physical damage and is still under warranty they should issue an RMA for it.

One thing to remember. The new mobo does not go by the serial number on your replaced RMA'd mobo. It goes off of the original serial number plus 3 months. So as long as you have records of your original Serial number just add 3 months to that original warranty period.

Good Luck,

Well.........In the words of tiny tim, God Bless Everyone!

Updated to bios 2208, and viola! In all my yers off breaking computers I have never had a bios become corrupt or fail without me trying to flash it or something. I successfully booted into windows and am now working on piecing the system back together 1 by 1...Thank you all once again, thank you N2...I will report back when everything is back together.
