Motherboard BIOS issue

helpdesk

#81

Good luck bro!


#82

Good luck!
May the computing and hardware gods be with you.


#83

Well, if not - I will use the money from the old system I sell to buy a new motherboard…


#84

Remember the hammer, you have to frighten the hardware sometimes into behaving.


#85

I’ll show it my old phone I threw at the wall after not working properly…


#86

Hopefully the sell works out well enough to get you some money for a decent board.
If you need any recommendations let me know. :slight_smile:


#87

Well, what do you know… Updated BIOS and no issues… Other than the Radeon drivers and the ASRock poop software, but that’s another thing…


#88

Awsome sauce! Congrats pete.


#89

Are you sure that that’s your board. Or did they secretly do swapsies.


#90

No no, it’s my board… Same broken pci-e slot clamp…


#91

SIGH
It’s back…


#92

Hmm.

Wonder how it did not happen over at asrock.


#93

At the retailer…
How can I test my ram while staying away from rebooting?


#94

Hmmm.

I wonder if there is a memtest app for Windows.

Maybe you can install it without it making it reboot to make you use it?


#95

After some googling memtesting from within windows won’t accurately do anything.

Ignore what I said.


#96

Is it possible, that my PSU is not doing great and it basically needs replacing? It’s 430W after all… Almost 5 years old.,…


#97

Could be.
Only way to test will cost money.


#98

Any test will cost money :frowning:

I’ve seen you still have problems with your pc :confused: what ram do you have and what clockspeeds does it run at and what is it rated for?

I had 3000mhz Corsair ram that would let my pc crash if I ran it above 2400mhz or it would freeze random and other strange stuff the the ryzen 1700x and the mainboard I have the x370f asus strix really didn’t like the ram. So I tested the ram with memetest86 and no error but under Windows crash or freeze etc I even replaced my 650 w seasonic gold psu because I thought maybe that was the problem but nope.

So I bought new Trident Z gskill amd tested ram that is running 3200 mhz no problems and no crashes now since 3 months I was so confused.

I’m gonna link the post I made on too , games crashed on me too with device removed errors ^^

The ram is Crucial Ballistix Elite 4x4GB 2666 running at 2666. The ram is in the motherboard QVL list and that’s the reason I got it.
The system doesn’t freeze once in Windows. It freezes in BIOS or during boot…
My keyboard died, a mechanical keyboard, so I took my old keyboard and plugged it in. Today I had the same issue. It didn’t boot up until the 4-th try…
I have absolutely no idea what to do.
I have a plan to buy new PSU and just one stick of different ram and see… I just hope it’s not my CPU cause I can’t afford anything even close to it…
