    S5520SC with 8800 GTS (G92) – Blank Screen after 30 Seconds

    volatilevoid

      Hi,

       

      I was unsure where to put this question. I have a S5520SC with a Gainward 8800 GTS 512 MB (G92) and 2x3 2 GB OCZ memory modules without ECC. I am cooling the whole machine with water, so no fans are attached to the motherboard.

       

      The system boots up fine, just one beep, all error LEDs off. After about 30 seconds, my screen goes into standby mode, regardless if I am in BIOS or just letting the system boot. It does not shut down the system. I read something similar in a thread about the DG45FC (http://communities.intel.com/message/13411#13411). Is this a BIOS problem or something else? Does it matter my memory does not support ECC (an older service guide says non-ECC unbuffered DDR3 is okay a newer one states "non-ECC not supported"!?)? Unfortunately, I do not have any spare ECC memory to test with. All DIMM error LEDs are off, the BIOS shows 12 GB as it should.

       

      Please help!

       

      Kind regards

      Thomas
