[FIXED]DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert won't post.

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I've just found this website because the DFIStreet web I knew doesn't exist anymore and I've just ran across a problem after several years of happily using the DFI Lanparty UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert (Socket 939).

I had installed the following:

CPU: AMD Athlon64 3500+ (Venice)
PSU: OCZ GameXstream 600w
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7900 GS
RAM: 2GB GSkill F1-4000USU2-GBHZ
COOLER: Thermalright XP-120 + Akasa fan
BIOS: Award Phoenix 6.00PG

All was working quit perfectly until l decided to install an Opteron 154 and a new cooler.

Problem is that the system won't start up. (4 red diagnostic LED's are on).

Things I have already tried:
- Clearing CMOS (30+ minutes). Nothing
- Reinstalling to the original CPU but now this doesn't work either.

The only thing I'm suspecting is that my PSU has given up, although it turns on and even the cooler fan turns on.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Put in your old CPU and update the BIOS.

Did you clear the CMOS before installing the new cpu?

This worked for me a very long time ago...

The proper Clear CMOS recovery. Not to be confused with a Normal CMOS Clear.

You can not use a USB keyboard for this procedure. You must use a PS2 keyboard.

You will need your manual to find the jumpers that must be changed.

If you skip or miss any step you must start again since the results will not be valid.
------
Remove power from the rig by pulling the plug or switching the PSU off.

Move the PC Speaker jumper to the ON position.

Remove the Battery.

Move the CMOS jumper to CLEAR.

Press the Start Button on the case or motherboard to drain the capacitors.

You may leave the board in this condition for as long as it takes to clear the CMOS. If a short 30 second clear or a 15 minute clear doesn't work, try an 8 hour clear.

Plug in a PS2 Keyboard.

Put one stick of RAM in the slot marked DIMM2.

Move the CMOS jumper to Normal.

Replace the Battery.

Press and hold the Insert Key on the Keyboard.

Apply power to the rig by plugging the power in or using the switch on the PSU.

Press the Start Button to power the rig up.

When you hear the BEEP, release the Insert Key and press the Delete Key on the Keyboard.

Once you enter the BIOS set the DATE and TIME then Load Optimized Defaults.

Save and Exit.

Enter the BIOS again and set it up the way you want for your particular rig.

NEVER load any saved CMOS settings from CMOS Reloaded once you have a new BIOS installed.

Anything else I could try? I'm a bit afraid I might have killed the mobo because I wouldn't believe that both CPU's are bad, specially because the older one WAS working perfectly before.

haha, tell me about it, that was my reaction when a guy off DFIStreet told me to do it lol... But in all honesty, It actually worked after a normal reset didn't. Another user on ocn also had issues with booting and this method also solved the problem.

It is by far the most ridiculous cmos reset ever created lol, but it did the job

Hey man sorry to hear about that, I have a similar Secondary system Opteron 165, DFI LanParty SLI DR and the Same PSU (is actually running my Core I7 Build for now)

First thing I would suggest, try running 1 memory slot, and mixing up the dimm that you place it in as well.

Was the old CPU being run at a high FSB or higher Voltage? Was any of the MOBO settings you had with the old CPU not reset to default settings before attempting the new CPU install?

Also, have you removed the motherboard and PSU and tried booting up out of the case? Put the motherboar don the motherboard box, nothing that can conduct electricity and generally the Boxes are fine to use for Testing.

Make sure all power connectors are plugged in properly again and make sure no pins are bent or possibly missing (maybe lodged into the Socket?)

Also I highly suggest Posting all this Here, at the OCN s939 Appreciation Club
These guys all knwo every litle detail about that socket and many have exact experience with that motherboard.

I know my Mobo has odd power plugs. Just of course make sure that every open Power plug of any form is connected properly, the 20+4 pin, the other 4 pin above CPU, the 4 Pin Under CPU with the Extra (smaller) 4 pin connecter as well. And then try booting with memory Modules, single, dif dims, play around till it works hopefully.

and if it doesnt work after all this, I would have to say that you somehow zapped the mobo =( or the PSU is no longer providing enough Current to the Machine. (volt meter can check if your Wall socket, and PSU are giving proper power)

Good Luck! Though I will say, it is pretty painfull to see that Uber Mobo with only a Single Core Processor, bu tnone the less, No 939 build deserve to die.
