I'm building my first computer and have everything installed, when I turn the system on i get a message that says "CPU of Memory Changed ! ! ! Please enter setup to configure your system.
Press F1 to run setup
Press F2 to load default values and continue"
Im currently using a MSI Z87-GD65 motherboard, Intel i5 4670K processor, OCZ Fatal1ty PSU, 1 TB Seagate HDD 64mb cache, and G.Skill 2x4 2133mhz ram in dual channel config.
I cannot run the setup because i dont have a keyboard with me, just a mouse. So i boot into bios using the Go2Bios button and restarting. The Bios Screen looks like its being run off a tilted Nintendo 64 cartridge. The menu is not fit to the screen (which may be a monitor issue) the menu is missing the MSI Dragon Logo in the center, Most menu's are missing parts or are not even there, under the OC menu the mouse freezes and i have to restart, messed up symbols appear every where, the menu's GUI works bot does not display correctly, and when i try to back out of a menu i get a message on a blue background that says "This bin file is incorrect " and that message refreshed whenever i move the mouse, covering the whole screen.
I think it may be a RAM issue but that doesnt seem like enough to cause this many problems maybe i'm wrong. PS i tried updating the bios from here http://us.msi.com/product/mb/Z87-GD65-GAMING.html#downl... with the newest version and so far it hasn't changed anything. PSS i dont have a graphics card installed because i cant afford it right now, i dont have a disk drive and i dont have a OS. Thanks a bunch to anybody who can help!
What method did you use to update the BIOS? Live Update? M-Flash? or other?
That is a great MB and one of its lesser known features is a dual BIOS. If one BIOS becomes corrupt, you simply flip a switch and, Voila! You are now on the spare BIOS.
Have you tried this yet?
I downloaded the newest BIOS on that list onto a flash drive and flashed it, a bar came up and when it finished it restarted, didnt change anything though. is the switch you talked about the multi BIOS switch? If so, nothing changes when i switch it, the situation is the same.
UPDATE: i got a disk drive and windows 8.1 and installed it, seems to work fine so far.
Try one stick of RAM in slot #2. That is the second slot away from the CPU. If nothing changes, try the other stick of RAM by itself in slot #2. If still no change, repeat those steps with slot #4.
Do you have access to another monitor you could try?
Ok i tried what you said and nothing changed but i noticed that when i use one stick of RAM in slot 2, it runs at 2133mhz, however when i put another stick in (no matter where) the ram starts running at 1600mhz.
I never thought it could be the monitor. i'm currently using a small HD TV because i don't have my other monitor with me, i will later tonight so ill try that. its hooked up with a hdmi, the computer is detecting it wrong because its running at 800x600 resolution and i tried to raise it in the control panel but it thinks that the highest resolution. Ill report back later when i try the other monitor. thanks for your help so far!
I connected it to a different monitor and now it works perfectly! this was a very strange problem considering i was getting error messages and it was freezing and it was all the monitor. I still have a RAM OC problem but ill make a different post in the RAM thread
