post #3091 of 12349
It looks to be a good day for solutions all around. I am on my system right now answering typing right now. I went with a guy for some parts that he wanted me to install and at the same time I checked out prices for him I bought myself a dlink wireless dwa-130 usb dongle...and it works. I even yelled out a yeeeehaaaa, which made my roommates happy for me.

Now to do a test to see what my speeds are...not anywhere near my 15/1 cable internet but it should suffice I think.

Thanks for the ideas guys but if this usb thing didn't work I was going to call my cable isp back up and get them out here where they would have had to put in a new call plug right to my bedroom and I would have another $52 bill each month.

turned on my comp and t did it again...do you think i would have to reinstall windows to fix this?

Noooooooooo.

Post problems has nothing to do w/your OS.

Any system that failz to post has Bios or hardware issues. Your OS is only gonna come in to play after your mobo finishes posting and turns the hardware instruction laguage over to the os so it can load drivers for all your hardware on the mobo and expantion cards etc etc.

I would do as thlnk3r has suggested. Check the battery on your mobo to see if it has adequate voltage. If you need to replace it you can get one at Radio shack, your grocery store, walmart, online etc etc. The battery is cheap and can only help out the situation. Well at least you will know if it's not a battery issue once you replace the battery and you have the same problems. If the problems go away after replaceing the battery then problem solved. If it turns out to not be the battery then put the new battery back in the package and go back to using the original battery and save the new one until a time that you do need it. I would use a permanent sharpy marker on the old battery so you don't confuse the old one for the new one. Of course if you have a digital multi meter then you can always test the voltage on the battery w/the DMM.

Hope this helps.

Oh yeah if it's not the battery then you could always try to reflash you bios again. Please though if you reflash your bios remember to clear your cmos jumper then go into bios and select optimum settings and save then flash your bios.

Good Luck,

N2G

Edit: If your battery is starting to go bad then it's possible it may cause bios corruption durnig a flash and that may be what is causing some issues. IDK but it may be worth a shot.

^ Excellent advice above. ^

The batteries are usually model "CR2032 Lithium button-style". You can get 2 at Autozone or Advance Auto (if you can find those stores) for the same price as 1 at Radioshack. (They are sold as vehicle remote batteries.)

Also, once the motherboard has booted fine with the current CPU and BIOS, battery failure shouldn't result in POST failure (unless your BIOS's default settings are unstable on your hardware).

Sry, I chimed in and didn't read prior posts...

Slink, oh it's possible. I know from experience

One of my boards had a low voltage cmos battery (2.6'ish voltage). The POST issues took a while to develop but eventually they started happening more often. Half the time it would freeze at the POST screen. So sure enough my multimeter read the cr2032 battery way below 3.0 volts.

Good luck

Before you go out and buy new batteries you may as well download PC Wizard 09 - as well as being a very useful app it also lists the cmos battery voltage under sensors, VBAT. Also seems to interact very well with this mobo, unlike some versions of everest I have tried out.

Actuality, great suggestion

For a second opinion I'd also check the voltage with a multimeter. Sometimes software can be a tad off on it's readings.

Good luck

That looks like a really cool tool. I am on my DFI NF4 Expert mobo atm and I tried to check the battery voltage on this mobo but apparently my mobo does not have the voltage sensor required to read the Vbat. Oh well.

Can this tool read ram bandwidth like Everest and if so can you tell me the steps required to do so. This is free and I would like to learn how to use it and then post a link to it on the Front Page.

N2Gaming, are you sure? It might down a bit more near the power supply voltages. VBAT showed up on my SLI-DR in Everest
