Media Test Failure, Check Cable HELP.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
EVGA 739i Mobo
evga gtx460
Intel core 2 duo E7500
4gb RAm @ 800Mhz
1 10kRPm drive, (1 500gb, 1 1TB, 2 80GB) 7200Rpm
950W PSU

Since there is no general help section i think i could post this here since it's an intel motherboard and its general. Let me know if i cant.

After i went into the BIOS and increased the voltage on the CPU from 1.45 which was stock to 1.47, my PC was off for a couple of hours, my PC wouldnt boot, I pressed the CMOS button, and removed the battery. but every time i boot it gets to the

Nvidia Boot Agent "Media test failure, check cable"

I can get by this if i insert the Windows 7 cd, but could this be my hard drive? i got a re certified 10krpm Raptor. It's been about a month now since i got it. I know the CMOS button worked because my memory clock went from 600 to 800MHz and i tried everything, one ram in each slot, all different combos with ram, with another video card. If i connect the SATA into the RAID controller, the Motherboard recognizes the hard drive, it spools up fine and everything, just gets to that error and i cannot move on or even get into the BIOS, motherboard or Hard drive problem? Thank for the help.

Do you have a network cable plugged in?

If not disable the cable checker in BIOS. If so disable it anyway and see if it boots without this message and your nic works.

Im guessing your boot device priority is wrong, you have the cable check test turned on and no cable plugged in.
