HELLO!! Basically,from the time I purchased this board,onboard LAN NEVER worked,I can't keep system operable longer than 45 minutes at a time without crashing.Another complication I neglected to mention was the fact that outside the CPU fan,if I connected any other system/case fan,ALL of the fans seem to be rotating irregurlarly,even on my 850W power supply.
I attempted to alieviate this issue myself,but with little success.Thinking I could achieve a RMA or replacement from INTEL,I contacted support and was informed I'd be charged a fee by INTEL to have it repaired by their technicians,this not including shipping and handling.I realize there's limited warranty terms,but I've only had this item a little over 5 months.
Besides,according to the terms of warranty I've researched here at INTELS' website and documents that came out of box,I'm entitled to a limited 3 YEAR coverage,it would've been nice to actually have a manufacturer follow such a policy.
Last week as I was going through contents in the anti-static bag,a very small shiney metal object I think goes on the board fell out.as far as I can tell this small device is possibly a crystal quartz device to regulate/time power or frequency.I'D JUST LIKE TO GET SOME USE OUT OF MY $140.00 INVESTMENT,LOL!!
Pls call Intel again. tell them clearly what happen.. you need to have lots of patience..
pls check that the processor you installing is supported for the DP35DP. there goes same for your RAM.
(1) if the Board can power up and enter P.O.S.T, pls ensure NetWork LAN is enabled in your bios.
(2) if the board cannot power up at POST. pls remove the battery for 30 minute without any wire connected to the board.
If (2) cannot solve, you got a faulty Mainboard.
IF you succeed at (1), place your board on a non metallic workbench, plug in the power supply, Processor and rams.. grapfic card too.. and power up...
RUN THE POST IN BIOS. pls navigate to the Hardware monitor, a bios page where you can see your pwr wattings, fan speed and etc..
Observe all the power rattings and the processor fan speed..
if you still face problem.. reply..!!..
ps: I PROUD USER OF INTEL DP35DP
