    Abit IP35 boot problems

    Hi,

    I have a Abit IP35 dark raider board with a Dual core 2.0Ghz and 4GB of 667 RAM. For some reason I am unable to boot without clearing the BIOS. This first started last week when on booting the machine it refused to go past the Post screen (logo screen) however it had not frozen because ctrl alt dlt would restart with the same result. I cleared the BIOS by removing battery and changing jumper settings. The machine then boots past the logo screen.

    My problems then really begin. I can either F1 to accept BIOS settings or DEL to change BIOS settings. Pressing F1 lets me boot into Windows normally and the machine is perfectly stable. If I turn the machine off or reboot I am back to hanging on the boot/logo screen. If I clear CMOS again and rather than choose F1 to boot into Windows and enter BIOS to change the time and date for example it again hangs at the Boot screen.

    The only way to get past all this into Windows Vista is to clear CMOS, boot and press F1 to bypass BIOS settings.

    If I have not been completely clear let me know and I will try and iron out any confusion.

    Thanks

    What bios version are you using? if you can get it to boot into windows, try flashing your bios using abits flash software, or alternatively make a bootable floppy.

    Agreed about the BIOS, if you are on the version that shipped with the board, I would definitely consider flashing to the latest.

    Incidentally, what cooler are you using?

    Re: Abit IP35 boot problems

    Sorry I did not mention that. Have tried flashing the BIOS using the bootbale floppy method rather than through Windows. Dont trust the flash software. Have version 14 installed. I did this when I first got the board and it was OK for about a month. Have since tried reflashing but same problem.

    In regards to the Cooler I have an Arctic 7 pro.

    I didnt realise that your pc used to run fine for a month. Can you think of anything that may have changed in your computer setup from your last good configuration? Have you checked your memory is getting the correct voltages and timings?

    Re: Abit IP35 boot problems

    Hi Again, sorry for the late reply. I didnt make any changes or installs to the machine and all the voltages etc were fine. Messed about a little with it and seem to have fixed it by swapping out the memory. Not sure what happened to the last lot.

    Thanks

    Re: Abit IP35 boot problems

    I will try flashing through windows. Dont like doing that because it has a tendancy to corrupt but never tried with this board. Im back to square 1 again so I dont think its the memory.

    It will say in Windows if it was successful or not.
    If it wasn't, just re-flash till it is. It is very very rare for issues to happen these days though, provided you kill all non essential processes

    Re: Abit IP35 boot problems

    We have gotten some reports of problems with the Seasonic built HX series PSUs, Seasonic built Antec PSUs, and some Seasonics. In those cases some users RMAd the PSUs and resolved the problem. In other cases, users RMAd the MOBO and resolved the problem. It's really hit and miss.

    If the board was working properly, then started exhibiting the issue, I'd suggest RMAing the board. If it never booted properly from the initial build, it's up to you to decide if you want to try replacing the MOBO or the PSU. We'll gladly replace it for you or you can go thru your retailer.

    Re: Abit IP35 boot problems

    I had the double boot issue (who didnt) so flashed to the beta (?) bios to fix it, all runs fine but now & again when trying to get into the BIOS it will hang 'just' before it should get into it & i just get a flashing cursor in the top left hand side of my screen. Fixed by clearing the cmos & booting up about 4 times, once I'm in it works fine but still a pain in the rear!
