Urgent Problem! Need quick help!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Right now I am working on modding my case so I took everything out and set it up on anti static paper on top of my DFI mobo box. When I start it up it goes past the DFI logo, past the RAID screen, and then to the post screen. It says " Verifying DMI Pool Data...Update Success" then "Backup CMOS...ok!" After these two steps is when it normally boots up and shows the Windows Loading Screen. However after it does there two steps the cursor just keeps flashing under the "Backup CMOS...ok!" step.

Now i have tried repairing Windows (not a fresh install but a repair) and I get the same results. I have also cleared CMOS every whichway possible and it even says I have the next time I turn the computer on. Also everything is hooked up correctly, including the 4 power cords.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

I've noticed that when the RAM in in the Yellow slots it takes a long time to get past the flashing cursor. If they are in these slots, give it about 20-30 seconds before you reset. Otherwise, try increasing the voltage. Set VID Control to 1.550. No, it won't hurt your CPU.

I forgot to mention that I took out my second stick of 512 and loaded only one of them in slot 2 (orange slot closest to the top of the mobo) I will up the vcore and also try uping the Vdimm. Let me go try this

No luck, tried rasing vcore and vdimm and its been sitting at the screen for a good 2-3 minutes.

Other suggestions?

Try easing back on the memory timings. If all else fails, try setting the BIOS to default settings and go from there. Wait a sec! If you've reset the CMOS then you may have set the date back to Jan/01/20XX. If that's the case windows will not load due to the date being out of spec.

Try adjusting the time and date first before going any further.

this might be silly but how many hard drives are you running and are you booting off the primary one?

so you don't get the windows screen at all? My friend had the same problem (kinda) but when it said "boot in safe mode?" we just picked "last settings that worked" and everything ran fine. Turned out the last working setting were settings without the NVIDIA pci-e bus driver. Those drivers probably didn't work because we were using an ATI card...

I am only running 1 IDE seagate barracuda. My IDE DVDRW is primary master, HDD is Primary Slave.

No windows screen at all. It stops right before it gets to it and just sits there flashing the cursor. It does NOT freeze because if i hit, ctl + alt + delete it restarts and the cursor is always flashing, never just staying still. I also dont get the screen that says "use last settings that worked" or "safe mode". What is the botton to press on startup that gets to that menu again? Is it F8?
