Yeah you absolutely need a PS/2 keyboard to setup the 965 to run. If you press any keys during boot/post on a USB keyboard it will freeze everything.

Thanks to you and swizz for confirming my suspicions. Once everything is configured, I assume that usb will be functional inside the bios, same as it was before the cmos wipe?

Yes, there is nothing wrong with USB ports, it is "only" a bug that affects navigation & editing of the BIOS, everything else will work alright.

Before the cmos wipe, my g15 worked fine, even within the bios. Once I get everything configured correctly again, I assume the bios itself will work fine with a usb keyboard?

Long live the PS/2. And I hope my logitech cordless keyboard and mouse never die so I can continue to use them connected to the PS/2 ports. biggrin.gif

I wonder how long motherboards will continue to support PS/2 inputs...

I have a number of unused PS/2 keyboards... Were you able to locate one to get your machine up and running?

Yep, located one from my girlfriend's family's house when we went for a visit tonight. Might be tomorrow before I get a chance to get the bios straightened out.

Good news is that the PS2 keyboard let me get the BIOS straightened out. Bad news is PMT doesn't seem to be allowing me to set the voltage and multipliers to the correct numbers. Even after applying them in PMT, Windows still reports an 803MHZ processor, even though my Windows experience index score for CPU went up after the upgrade. I'm currently downloading nVidia System Tools in the hopes of getting the issue straightened out.

PMT has a high performance/balanced option, http://www.overclock.net/t/366989/official-asus-m2n-sli-and-m2n32-sli-club/9560_20#post_15904167
Maybe you are set to balanced,try stressing the system with cpu-z open to see if it is working.

In addition, please take a look at this post, in particular the past paragraph.

Are you saying you can't see Vcore or the CPU clocks go up at all? What OS are you running.

I went back into the BIOS, set the chipset option to manual, and set the clock multiplier and CPU voltage in there (17x multiplier and 1.3v CPU voltage), and left the rest of the options to auto. Restarted, checked windows system properties, and the chip now registers as 3.42GHZ. Apparently PPT was making the processor function correctly(nVidia system tools showed the correct multiplier in system info), but since the BIOS itself was still reporting an 800MHZ chip (Saw that with my own eyes in the POST data), Windows reported the same.

Since I plan to just leave the chip at it's stock speed (no OC), is there any reason not to just let the BIOS settings handle the voltage and multiplier, and just ignore PPT and nVidia system tools?

Great, now I have a serious problem...

Started the system up this morning and walked away for a minute. Came back to a black monitor, no response. Did a hard shut down, brought the system back up, and got the standard error after Windows fails to boot. Keyboard didnt respond, so I did another hard shutdown to plug in the PS/2 keyboard. Brought system back up, same prompt, neither keyboard responds. Timer runs down, goes into repair mode. Mouse is responding in repair mode, but the repair process seems hung - the bar kept moving, but it didn't do anything for several minutes. Another hard shutdown, and now when it tries to go to repair mode, I get a BSOD stating "The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS." Uhh...wot?

Stop info from BSOD:
STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x0000000000000011, 0x0000000000000006, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

No changes have been made since last night (either hardware or in BIOS), but everything worked fine last night. Even enjoyed a round of BF3 with the improved performance from the new proc after I manually set the CPU voltage and multiplier in BIOS.

I'm on the verge of breaking out the install disc and doing a full Windows reinstall. Fortunately, 98% of my programs are on the twin 500GB hard drives I use for storage, not the 74GB Raptor I use for the OS.

Anyone have any idea what the hell is going on? Is it possible the BIOS has been corrupted, or is this just Windows freaking out?

Edit to add: Went back into BIOS, reset to defaults. Disabled chassis intrusion detection, set the P&P OS to "YES", left everything else alone (CPU volt and multiplier settings seemed to not have been reset), saved and restarted. Got the same Windows prompt, only this time the keyboard was responding. Selected boot as normal, Windows loaded no problem. CPU reporting in system properties as 803MHZ again.

Deus Ex Machina strikes again, perhaps?

Second edit: BIOS CPU settings for voltage and multiplier were not retained like I first thought. Once I got back into Windows, I restarted to double check the BIOS, and corrected the CPU settings in the BIOS. Windows now reports 3.42GHZ processor again. biggrin.gif
