    DP55KG - BIOS has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s)

    quark

      Hello. I have the folowing system:

      - Motherboard    Intel DP55KG
      - Processor        Intel i7 860
      - Memory        Kingston KVR1333D3N9K2/4G x2
      - Video Card # 1    Gigabyte 8400 GS
      - Video Card # 2    -
      - Video Card # 3    -
      - Hard Drive # 1    WD SATA2 750 GB 7200
      - Hard Drive # 2    WD SATA2 750 GB 7200
      - Hard Drive # 3    WD SATA2 150 GB 10000
      - Hard Drive # 4    WD SATA2 150 GB 10000
      - Hard Drive # 5    WD SATA2 150 GB 10000
      - Hard Drive # 6    -
      - Optical Drive # 1    SATA
      - Optical Drive # 2    -
      - Case
      - Power Supply    Spire 750W
      - Sound Card    on-board
      - Monitor        Samsung
      - Operating System    CentOS 64 bit
      - USB Flash Drive    no

       

      On OS restart (in CentOS, via selecting "Restart"), the BIOS displays the usual splash screen and then generates the following message: "The system BIOS has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s). Possible causes include recent changes to BIOS Performance options or recent hardware changes. Press 'Y' to enter BIOS Setup or press 'N' to cancel and attempt to boot with previous settings." If I type 'N' the system boots normally. If I type 'Y' and exit the BIOS without changing anything, it also boots normally.


      I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version, I removed the optical drive and all aux fans in order to reduce the power consumption and I delayed the start of HDD, but the same problem

       

      PLEASE HELP!
