DEATH by Bios - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I don't know if it will work, but is definitely is worth a shot, but you should try clearing your CMOS. If just happens to post make sure you get into your bios and set your bios to default settings. Might want to check on the DFI Street Forum for a bios chip, I think there is member that sells them for around $20 shipped. If it is not too late.

Bios is at default, sniff, CMOS has been cleared twice now. sniff, sniff, bios chip is on order. I've flashed maybe 30 bios in the last 6 years or so, and I've never had this happen. I doubled checked it was the right bios, I was already on default settings for the cmos. I rebooted to the floppy, the autoexec.bat had all the switches, the awdflash went to work, ALL CHECKED OUT FINE. All seemed "just peachy" So I pulled out my flash floppy and hit F1.

Everything came on, but no post. I checked to see if my cmos jumper was back in the right position and it was. All cables, wires, plugs, etc... were intact. I feel like :swearing::swearing::swearing:

I cleared the cmos again, I checked and rechecked and rechecked the recheck. I have now gone out to the barn to get the C4.

Have you tried only connecting only the critical components when attempting to post? That bios version may have a conflict with some hardware like your soundcard, dvd-rom, DVD-burner, etc. If your operating system is on your WD then just connect that one or vice versa.

Try the CMOS Clear Procedure - it is in the nF4 FAQ - towards the bottom. It will be worth a try.

no...your supposed to set your bios to fail-safe defaults AFTER you flash it. I did mine yesterday. If its dead its dead. Happened to my previous mobo, theres nothing that can be done unless you have a removable bios. A new DFI bos can be purchased for about only $24 american.

Heres an example: no wait....they dont sell it anymore on that site, never mind It can be found elsewhere dont worry

That CMOS Clear Procedure that ncsa refered to in the FAQ is a direct quote from DFI-Street Forum moderator RGone. It you have not searched through that forum or asked anyone there about this issue, I would definitely recommend doing so. It is the single most valuable resource a DFI motherboard owner can have, and a big reason I decided on my board.
