I just finalized my build of an i7 with a DX58SO & am having some pretty major problems getting it to boot up properly.
When I boot the first thing I see is the display filled with random gibberish characters. Then I get to a crisp image from Intel with the option of pressing F2. If I press F2, I go into setup properly & have no issues with anything within. When I try to boot my OS from the CD or when I have tried to flash the bios, all I get is random gibberish. It is as if the system is running properly, but I cannot tell what messages it is displaying. At one point I believe I was able to get to a command prompt as if I would type, the random text would change. Then if I hit enter the cursor would drop a couple lines & appear to give some kind of message, once again, unreadable.
I have tried removing the battery from the motherboard for over an hour, pressing the power button a bunch of times without power connected & then trying a restart. No luck.
I believe my bios are badly corrupted, but I cannot get them to flash properly, as I cannot even read anything on the screen.
Here is a rundown on the full setup & some images of what I am seeing. Please, if anyone has any ideas, I would sure appreciate them!
3 x 1GB DDR3 PC3-8500
BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC Edition
BFG 550W Modular Power
