Asus DVD-Drive just went into a rampage.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

My ASUS Drive seems to have caused me some problems.

I connected it, double checked, everything OK. I then inserted my Win7 DVD to install the OS on my newly bought Corsair F120. Everything went fine, but at around 65% it stopped, and suddenly it started to spin around like crazy. I stopped it and took out the Win7 CD and noticed that it was completely destroyed. I seriously don't know how this could happen, i checked and it was connected just right, well i took out my CD and tried to get into bios. I got the message "Please remove all DVD/MEDIA and press any key to restart". I disconnected everything media-related including the Asus DVD-Drive. Now I'm trying to boot again but my SSD is not recognized. I tried unplugging it, checking cables - cables are alright, connected the SSD again, this time apparently there is no signal between my monitor and my GFX.

I can't even get into BIOS now, i just get the message "no signal" on my monitor. I have checked everything, 24pin connected to the mobo, mobo is turned on, GFX works, 2x 8pin connected to the CPU, honestly i don't know where the issue is. I even tried unplugging the RAM and tested them individually. No luck. Christ, so much problems started just because of that frigging Asus drive freaking out.

This is a long shot without testing more, but one of the following parts may have gone bust, in turns causing the aforementioned behavior of the DVD: motherboard, graphics card, PSU; less likely are the processor or the RAM.

This leads me to think the rampage DVD isn't the cause of the fault, it is the result. Test your components, disconnect all but the minimum from the PSU and motherboard and try to boot; try to narrow down the list of possible faulty components.

/sorry for the bad news, hope I'm wrong

I have tested with several PSU's, i still manage to power the mobo but still no signal between monitor and GFX. Tested with two mobo's, tested with all 3 ram bricks individually. Still no luck.

Either my monitor is playing tricks on me, or it may be my CPU that died suddenly. I was going to pick up my power supply tester, but since the mobo is receiving power from the 24pin cable and i get the same result with all 3 PSU's the problem can't be the PSU.

This is difficult, especially since i can't even get into BIOS. Any extreme geeks out there to help me out? I will continue to troubleshoot in the meantime.

Update 1/10/2011

I managed to switch motherboards with an EVGA X58 LE, now i have contact between monitor and GFX, and i can enter BIOS. I will switch back to my main EVGA Classified 3 to see if can get into BIOS with that MOBO as well. If not, then it may be my brand new Classified 3 that is the problem.

evga makes shoddy mobo.....but their gpu's are great.

OK, so i went into BIOS on the EVGA X58 LE and loaded defaults ( just in case ) and i can now conclude that:

a) The PSU is ok, b) RAM are ok, c) GFX is ok, d) CPU is ok.

Now the EVGA mobo works, but there seems to be some problems with it recognizing the Corsair F120 SSD. So that leaves me with two options

1: EVGA can't connect with F120 ( maybe outdated bios, i dont know. )
2. The Corsair F120 is dead. That's pretty much were i am now.

Try using the SSD as a storage drive in another computer, just to see if windows recognizes it and allows you to write data to it. If it works, then your SSD is probably fine.

The ssd should be recognized in the bios.I don't know if you have but try leaving the ssd out of the pc for a half hour or so with no power connected.Then re install it and reset your cmos,keeping your fingers crossed.I suppose if you don't have the latest bios that might cause an issue.

Next time don't overclock your Disk Drive.

I located the problem and the SSD is dead. Already fixed an advanced RMA @ Corsair.

But with that said, the Evga mobo is still acting weird. It still has problems with randomly not being able to recognize/register my HDD's. May have to flash the bios. Quite disappointing for a motherboard in that price category.
