    ASROCK 939 + 146 problem

    Mates just bought a 146 and the ASROCK 939 Dual SATA board to go with it. hes wired it all up, but nothing happens when you press the power button, i've checked the power button connectors and there all fine,except his power led connects to the psu (cheap case). we've managed to start it dont ask how cos were not sure, and all the leds were working on the front, the fans span, the hdd span, everything, but the monitor wasnt recieving a signal and it wouldnt restart or shut down using the case buttons. tryed everything i can possibly think of, but to no avail. is the board b0rked? (its from an eBay shop :| )

    Hmm...if you have a look at my signature, this is the setup that i have also. I got it becuase i thought it would be good value for money and help me OC my CPU but it has given me load of problems.

    When you press the the power button, have you EVER got it to post? Because if you have it would be interesting to find out what BIOS version you have. I think that earlier BIOS versions had a "Cold Boot" bug which sounds similar to what you have.

    Do you hear any beep codes? because the problem that i had was that it would start fine and every now and then, the monitor vould lose its signal (you could see the monitor light blinking) but everything else seemed to be whirring away. After about 100 rebuilds, it seemed that the problem was with the BIOS battery. Try to pop it out, then back in and see if that lets you boot.

    Oh also - with that combo I'm guessing that you might have done some OCing. If you have, you definitley want to pop the BIOS reset switch first. I'm not an expert on this, but try googling the cold boot problem to see what it brings up. I'll do what else i can if you get back with more info

    Anyway, try this forum for all things ASRock 939 Dual-SATA2 related.
    It helped me with a major AGP problem i was having.
    I warn you though that it's a bugger to register & post there, but it's still great to read.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.

    Well, still, it may be a good idea to have a gander at the forum mentioned - i was pointed there when i got my opty/Asrock combo and it does help to know about issues and solutions covered there.

    Have fun and let us know how well the overclocking goes!!!

    Yeah - hope you get a better OC than me, i am just at 2.5 stable, but cant get 2.6 to pass prime. I think that i need more voltage, but can i really be bothered to do a volt mod? Not sure, could be a load of hassle and lets face it, is that extra 100-200 mhz max gonna make that much difference? Probably not - i think that i just go a bad stepping of the 146 - what have you got? And have you googled it to see what other people of that stepping have got too???

    Thats pretty cool!! Fancy swapping yours for my CACJE (i tink thats what it was - well it wasnt a CABNE!!!) I see you've reached the 274 ceiling. Just be careful of the OCWB1&2as the options available are slightly different and some of the defaults might not be as obvious as you think - basically, go throughr EVERY option!!!

    Would like to do the volt mod - but stupid HSF bracket is in the way....Grrrrr
