Anyone have any idea as to what is going on? I checked for busted capacitors, i tried the bios recovery method from intel on both a USB drive and a CD. No pins are bent on the CPU. I physically see nothing wrong with the board.
BTW that last post as a Guest was me, i forgot to sign in.
I'm experiencing more or less the same problem ( my error is a bF, and it stops when trying to load the BIOS or boot from any device ).
Does anybody know what to do??
I'm getting this error code as well, #17. It's a brand new motherboard. Actually it's a replacement RMA due to a power-on glitch that would happen. I'd rather have the previous board with the power on bug over this board that doesn't work.
These DX58SO2 boards suck.
EDIT: Okay, stupid user error. I had the memory in the black slots. The board didn't like like, has to be the blue slots. Seems to be booting now. But these boards still suck.
My way to solve the error was to unplug everything, then re-start, downgrade my bios through a pendriver, and try to plug every drive one by one starting with the most essential ( like HD's, mouse\keyboard... ),always re-starting between drivers.
Hey folks, sorry to resurrect a thread which now has a birthday, but did everyone resolve this issue (or at least definitively find the root cause)? I'm experiencing this issue after installing new memory modules on my board and now I'm hosed. Further, nothing even seems to work with the old DIMMS anymore either. Tried resetting CMOS by removing the battery, but no dice. I just want my system back. :-/
