    NF7 Board Help....Again

    Alright for those who read my previous thread they will know that I had a problem with my NF2 chipset on my NF7 and had to send it back to CPU CITY.
    Ok so i recieve my new board back, all nice and shiny, or so it seems.

    Put everything in, check everything to make sure its all good, and i fire it up, and i hear the shuttering sound of the dreaded POST beeps (all 1 after another long POST beeps btw). So there i am for a good 45min and have no clues, call up a friend and we are trying to trouble shoot it, i change the RAM, and gfx card but to no avail. I cant figure out what is wrong, would i be wrong to suggest that the new mobo i have recieved is faulty? It has really stumped me on this one, i just cant figure it out.

    So if anyone could be kind enough as to give me some ideas which I could try to see if I could get this all working, that would be grand as i am clean out. System specs are in the sig.

    Thx ppl

    CMOS jumper set correctly ?
    What memory you got in there ?
    HSF seated correctly ? (if not, it will auto shutdown and do what you have decribed)

    Yep, i even reset the cmos just in case, and made sure it was ok.

    Memory is Corsair Twinx3200 2*512mb

    Quite sure the HSF is put on right, ive checked and made sure it is sitting ok.

    thx for the info btw

    Did you unplug the PSU cable when you reset the CMOS ?
    The nf7 will keep the CMOS data if not as it takes off the mains power aswell.

    edit - also the nf7 takes quite a while to reset the CMOS.

    I guess i didnt unplug the power, but i did turn off the switch from the back of the PSU, would that still do the same thing? Ill give it a go anyway.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    The bleep is the same tone over and over again, i couldnt find anything in the manual which described what the bleeps were either.

    Are you sure the mobo isnt being short circuited by the case or anything ? If that was the prob with the first one, and its the same case, maybe you aren't fitting it correctly ??

    No, i dont think it is that, the problem the first time was that the NB fan itseld just stopped working, and it was working fine for 4 months until it decided to go, so i dont think it is the case.

    What power supply you got? Because dodgy power supplies can definitely kill mobos just to let you know. Well older models anyway, i'm sure the NF7 series would have some sort of protect on them but there's always a chance

    I had this problem a couple of times, when you switch on its just a nee-naa continual sound! Try holding down the insert key and pressing reset about 5-6 times, give it a few seconds between resets, it may boot then! Sounds crazy but it works for me, if that doesn't work its defo a hardware/set-up problem.

    edit: Also, Agent is right about unplugging the power lead when resetting the BIOS, you need to do that.

    Looked it up, and it seems to be either the cpu, or memory.


    [i]What power supply you got?[/B]
    Im using the chieftec psu 300w which came with the case.
