wht do you mean with BIOS recovery screen? It doesn't POST?
Ok what I mean is there's no post beep and the screen displays a dos like screen with the words bad bios checksum running Bios Recovery then it proceeds to check the disc drive for the bios rom then the usb which I've placed the latest bios rom file and it finds it and says Reading "SABTOX58.rom" then just does nothing. I've tried it again this morning and it just sits there saying it's reading. Left it for 30mins.
The place of purchase is closed on weekends so I can't call them to get a replacement board under warranty (purchased May 2010). Also of note the only red led light that's on is the memory light (hard on not flashing). If I press the memory check button the pc tries to boot and I get 2 beeps and then the pc just keeps rebooting over and over. I have tried 3 different memory configs ( I'm using Patriot Sector 7 3x2gig sticks DDR3) and have tried having 1 stick then 2 then 3, nothing works.
I just finished taking everything off the MB and checked it over nothing stood out as unusual so put it all back together with everything installed and the light for the memory is the only led that's on and get the same screen with the bios recovery etc.
I don't have any other memory to test.Edited by Simonno10 - 8/12/11 at 8:20pm
