Greetings - I have a DH67CL board with current BIOS (0119), WIN 7 and i7-2600k CPU. Today I installed an Intel SSD 320 series (80GB) and cloned it to be my sys drive. My previous sys. drive remains installed as a backup. After data migration I changed boot order in the BIOS and rebooted. The desk top utility issued a high temp alarm for "other/unknown temperature" which was indicating a current 33 deg C. The upper threshold indicated 0. I raised the threshold to 40 and no further problem. I shut down and rebooted, the alarm went off and I noted that the upper threshold had reset to 0. I increased the threshold and again it worked ok until I rebooted.
I downloaded and installed a new copy of the utility and am experiencing the same problem.
I would appreciate any help or advice you may provide. Thank you. Peter
It makes no difference that you are the only user or administrator. The program must start with the option "Run as administrator". Check the properties on the desktop short cut and see if "Run as administrator" in Advanced pop-up is check-marked. The same is true when the utility was first installed. Double clicking on the installer won't do. If you didn't execute the installer with "Run as administrator", you should uninstall the utility and try again.
CarWiz - Thanks again for the response. Run as administrator in advanced pop-up was not check-marked. I uninstalled and have downloaded the utility to my desktop but cannot figure out how to run the installer as administrator. I thought the installer should prompt me.
I can run the program as administrator after installing but that does not change anything, The program installs, I reboot, and the alarm comes on before I have a chance to run the program as administrator. Hope that is clear. Regards. Peter
Ops. Sorry, I forgot that it was a Zip file. Right click on the zip file and select "Extract All". You can let it default to the current location and it will create a folder with the same name as the zip file but without ".zip". Explore that folder for Setup.exe then right click on that and select "Run as administrator".
CarWiz - I followed your directions and was able to open the download and install using "Run as Administrator". Unfortunately, that did not fix the problem. When I rebooted the alarm went off. Thanks for sticking with me - I learned something in this exercise. Thanks again CarWiz. Regards. Peter
CarWiz - I was updated to the current BIOS before this started. I do change the threshold value each time the alarm goes off. It will run fine until I reboot. On rebooting the alarm goes off and when I look at the threshold value it has been reset to 0. As I mentioned previously, this all started when I installed the SSD and cloned it to be the system drive. The only change to the BIOS was to make the SSD the first drive to boot.
I just reset the threshold, rebooted, and the alarm went off - the threshold is 0. Run as administrator is checked. Regards. Peter
I have a DH67GD (same bios, same drivers) and when upgrading the bios from 105 to 110 I had strange values reported by IDU.
This was solved going to the the bios and using the "load default values" command, before setting again mine, and this solved the issue.
Upgrading then to 119 I did the same just after upgrading, so I cannot comment if the same problem is present.
When upgading to bios 119 I also installed the new release of the management engine driver.
If I remember well, no, I did not remove IDU for this purpose.
If you have to uninstall IDU you need first to stop it, but because there is no command to stop it, at my knowledge, you need either to stop the processes in the task manager, or (better) to avoid IDU service startup unchecking it in administrative tools / system configuration / services and then restart.
Sorry, if you need, you can uninstall the normal way, the above solution was for another situation, when the utility window should be on the screen and is not visible (yes, this may happen sometimes, intelmain.exe process started but no GUI on the screen ).
