My problem is that I can not boot the comptuer without essentially turn it on, then off then On again.
The 1st power on from leaving it off overnight goes no where. I get no video. I would have to power it off then back on again before I even get video and for it to POST.
I want to downgrade to 0484 as a starting point one hope it solves that problem. If it does I'm good.
If it doesn't then something else is causing the problem.Of Course right now I can't downgrade to narrow things down a bit.
My last resort is take out teh Q9550 but back my E6850 and really really hope its not the CPU.
I should add this. XP SP3 shows the Q9550 as a P3 Xeon. Cpuz however correctly displays it as the Q9550
oh .. in that case..
plug out the bios jumper from your mainboard and put it aside..
plug in your ODD with the bios version you wanna install..
then opn your system.. pls observe is there any reading activity coming from the ODD "with your bios media inside"
if there is none, i think you got a real bust up DP35DP mainboard, call intel support hotline then
