So it's a post error involving the display adapter after pushing the reference clock too high.

Some one help, I'm starting to get these horrible idea's in my head. I told my friend I might build an Intel+Nvidia rig ...

That's what I thought too but I checked the specs and that board doesn't have one

No this mobo does not have any integrated graphics. I don't have another gpu but I also don't want to bleed and disassemble my loop if I really don't have to.

^Lol third time I got ninja'ed on this thread. I'm just happy you guys are here to help.

1. Clear the CMOS. (done)
2. Flash the bios. (done)
3. Reseat the video card (not done)
4. Try another video card (not done)

If none of those fix it, the long-shot options are:
5. Reseat CPU and RAM
6. Try another Power Supply

Do you have a friend with a dusty old video card laying around somewhere? I keep a 7 series Nvidia card around for this kind of thing. I know bleeding the W/C system is a pain but at this point, you don't have any other options that I can think of.

Don't forget that I'm actually on the system right now typing this up. Played some star craft 2 earlier. Even though I'm getting the post error if I hit f1 to continue (Instead of choosing default or load last known good settings) it'll post and boot up windows.

But every time I restart or shut down it will fail to post until I clear the cmos (and then hit f1 to continue) I don't know. At this point it doesn't seem like physically messing around with the hardware will accomplish anything.

......

This problem is getting very weird. So I just realized if I shut down the computer from windows and then turn it back on it will boot just fine.

But if I restart from windows then it will do the same exact problem as described in my first post. What the fu....... What does any of the windows boot files have to do with post? It's obviously a post error. I thought.... I'm more confused now then I was before. Can anyone shed some light?

Ok, this *will* sound wierd Dismantle your machine to the smallest part- take CPU out of the socket, GPU, all drives, PSU, everything. Clean everything and put back together. I had the same problem and getting my wife to dismantle to rig got the bitcz (computer ) working!!

Is anyone familiar with "CMOS checksum error"?

So it might be a battery losing power? What is the standard voltage? Mine reads ~ 2.94v So I have the CR2032 and it is 3v so that's fine.

So far everything in a google search comes up as simple errors that are easily fixable by resetting the cmos....... ugh.

Some body help me before I take a hammer to this computer.
post #40 of 43
you keep mentioning "last known good configuration" that's windows lingo and has nothing to with POST afaik. i've a gigabyte board and have never seen that unless it was windows 7 advanced startup options. either way, you're talking strictly about windows. when windows ****s up, reinstall it.
