    Default Weird Issue Rampage II Extreme

    Hey all,

    I've run into a weird situation and was hoping to see if anyone had some thoughts.

    I had a GTX 295 but took it out (long story). Everything was fine and no problems.

    After installing a BFG GTX 280 OC Version I started having problems. The first time around the system crashed with the blue screen. I turned off the system via case power button. I then proceeded to turn the system back on. The system and the components would power up but it would not boot and cycle through the lcd poster. I then turn off power by holding the power button for a few seconds to turn off system. Next, I turned off main power by switching the psu switch. I then switch atx power back on (after 15 seconds) and the system would boot after clicking the power button on the case. However, it would take me a to a prompt menu saying "Overclocking failed! Please enter Setup to re-configure your system. Press F1 to Run Setup. Press F2 to load default values and continue." I hit F1 go into setup, everything looks good including memory on xmp settings. I don't change anything in the bios. I click save and exit and once I exit the bios menu it boots fine to windows.

    The last two days I would get the same problem. That is once I shutdown from windows when I power up the system from a cold boot system powers on but nothing happens. It's on but no boot or bios cycle. I then again turn off the system via the power button then proceed to turn off main power by switching the psu switch. I then switch atx power back on after 15 seconds. I click the case button for power and system boots then takes me to that same overclocking failed prompt where then I once again go back into bios look at the settings, click save and exit without changing anything and then am able to load the system to windows.
    In the morning I had the same problem. I would do what I mentioned to get the system to windows.

    About 6 hours later I booted the system from cold start and its fine no problems... 2 hours later I booted again from cold start and no problem. This is really confusing the hell out of me. I am going to give it some time see what happens before I must go to the next level. I am hoping that someone may have any ideas or suggestions about this issue.
    Thanks!

    I have also flashed the bios 0804 and even switch bios on the board but it does not seem to have a direct effect on fixing this issue.

    Hi welcome to PureOC...
    i might be thinking it could be a faulty or unstable PSU...have you tried another PSU yet?

    Before ruling out as a PSU problem
    What happens when you change yr settings back to default? does the system boot fine? if it does your overclock settings could be unstable. What does the LCD poster say when your system does not POST? Does it say "LOCKED"

    Next you might want to consider flashing your BIOS to 0903 or 1001 non-beta versions instead
    Mine came shipped with 0803 and i updated it to 0903 i found that overclocking on 0903 is much more stable.

    I had problems when the LED poster was stuck as "locked" and it ended up being a bad DIMM slot for me. But it could be a PSU problem.

    Try running MemTest as well to rule out the memory as an issue.


    First off though: go into BIOS and putting everything at stock/auto settings. No overclock. See if the problem occurs after that. That will narrow down the choices (this is assuming your overclock is stable and isn't causing the BSOD).

    These are all great ideas. Thanks I appreciate them. Hmmm....well what happens is that I turn on the system and nothing happens with the lcd poster. It just stays on clock mode although the system is powered on and everything is running.

    I cut off main power and the system boots then takes me that that overclocking failed prompt.

    I guess I should try memtest first see the results.


    For PSU, I don't really have access to one. Is there a way to test the psu. I read about it somewhere but cant remember how to do it.

    UPDATE: Today turned off system then turned back on. First time said locked. Hit restart button and it booted to windows fine.

    If it were me I would reset CMOS. Set BIOS for optimized defaults.
    Then before exiting BIOS set your boot sequence to start with Hard Drive.

    1.06vcore? Uhh.... I have a feeling that isn't helping your stability any.
