A while back, my computer got burnt at a lan party (I've told the story before).
Insurrance paid for some new parts.
However, I haven't been able to get my computer up and running because I keep getting a dead motherboard.
The Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe is the board in question.
It won't boot at all unless I clear cmos.
Then it will boot into cmos.
Whether I change something or not, it won't boot a second time.
I have to clear cmos again.
I have returned the board 3 times.
Every time I have the same problem.
I was wondering if there was some incompatibility in my parts.
I can't find anything on the web so I'm asking here.
I striped the board down to neccessities, video card, motherboard, ram, CPU.
well, the second time you got a dead board you should have gotten a pencil or something and put a mark somewhere on the pcb, so you would know if you got the same board back...
Anyhow...asus boards do this when they boot into "safe mode" pretty much, on first boot or if the cpu is overclocked to far to even post, the board runs the cpu at the slowest speeds possible, so you can get into the bios and change some settings.
Have you tried a diffrent powersupply?
