    Pin or other problem

    Hi,

    I built a new pc (all new parts, except i kept my old hard drive as well as adding another) a couple of days ago and the damn thing won't boot. There was a bent pin, but I managed to get it back in place (although it is a little higher than the others).

    I have had suggestions on how to resolve this on another site which i will try later, but was wondering if people more familiar with abit motherboards would know if the pin is the problem or not?

    When i turn the pc on it appears to load normally, but when it gets to the part where windows should be loading, it resets. The bios recognises the cpu (core duo 2.67mhz), so I am not sure if this pin is the problem.

    Components listed below:

    Abit motherboard IP35-E Intel P35 ;
    Intel CPU Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz ;
    Corsair 2048MB TwinX XMS2 6400 DDR2 ;
    512MB BFG Technology 8800GT OC ;
    500GB Seagate Barracuda SATA II 300 7200rpm 8MB cache
    + old hard drive (160MB - windows xp installed) ;
    NEC Optiarc AD-7170S-0B SATA Black 18x DVD ┬▒RW/RAM ;
    ThermalTake TR2 470W Black Silent +ATX 12V 2.0 PSU ;
    Asus TA861 Black/silver midi tower case NO PSU ATX

    Thanks, in advance.

    Without you telling us what type of pin was bent it's going to be pretty much impossible... we talking one of the connector blocks ? IDE ? Socket ? PCIe slot ?

    Re: Pin or other problem

    Check the temps and recommended voltages for your memory. The pin shouldn't be an issue if you have successfully relocated it.

    I guessed it was CPU socket pin?

    Re: Pin or other problem

    Yes - it is the CPU socket pin, sorry about that.

    One thing that might be worth adding; there is a single beep when i turn the pc on. My old pc did this and was fine, but I have only just realised that not all codes are the same. Is this important?

    The temps and voltages are normal, i think:

    Voltages:
    CPU core - 1.3500V
    DDR2 - 1.80V
    CPU VTT - 1.2000V
    ICH - 1.50V
    MCH - 1.250V
    CPU GTLREF - 63.0%

    Temperatures:
    CPU shutdown temp - 94C/194F
    CPU warning temp - 80C/167F
    CPU temp - 56C/133F
    System temp - 26C/79F
    PWM - 41C/106F

    It is a short beep.

    Can you tell me the exact model of your memory as you may need to increase the DDR2 voltage to 1.9v or 2.1v depending on the model.

    Re: Pin or other problem

    The memory is:

    Corsair 2048MB TwinX XMS2 6400 DDR2 Memory Kit (2 x 1024MB)

    and this is the web address of where i bought it:

    microdirect.co.uk/(15884)Corsair-2048MB-TwinX-XMS2-6400-DDR2-Memory.aspx

    Thanks.

    Re: Pin or other problem

    I just checked out the spec, it includes;

    Supply Voltage -- 1.9 V

    Is this all i should change?

    Its a good starting point. Make the changes and see if theres any improvement.

    Re: Pin or other problem

    Try re-installing XP as well, it's not overly fond of being dumped from one board to another unless they are very similar from a hardware/chipset POV and i'm guessing that's what you've done from your first post.

    Just one question about this. Would this simply involve turning the pc with the xp disk in the drive? It has been a long time since i have had to do it!

    Cheers guys, got it sorted. Installing xp onto new hard drive, with other one unplugged, solved everything.

    Thanks.
