New computer build problems

I have a Biostart N68S3B MOBO. When I boot it up, everything loads, I do get one message on the screen that says "DQS training failed on previous boot, reverted to slower DRAM speed" but other than I don't see any problems. When I get the option to go to Bios or continue with default settings it brings me to a screen that says the below.

Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

When I press a key, it just keeps displaying that same message. Does anyone know what the problem can be? I've tried more than one installation disk too. Is there even a way to get to dos from here? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. Welcome to Tom's Forums! :)

    First try clearing the CMOS and afterwards boot to the BIOS and turn DQS Training off/disabled.

    Q - What RAM, CPU and RAM DIMM slots are you using?

    Thanks for the response. I don't have everything in front of me right now but it's an AMD Phenom, I think a 9850 and I have 2 stick of 4 GB Corsair Ram 1333, I believe.
  3. The primary reason for asking is to verify that the RAM is indeed compatible with your MOBO/CPU also to verify the CPU is compatible.

    Major problem with Biostar N68S3B, the CPU is not listed as being supported -> http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/cpu_support.php?S_ID=517
    Phenom X4 9850 (HD9850WCJ4BGH)
    Phenom X4 9850 (HD985ZXAJ4BGH)

    This came as a barebones kit, so I'm pretty sure everything compatible. How do you disable the dqs training?
  5. Did you overlook the CPU issue {CPU is NOT supported by that MOBO}??!! I'd love it if barbone kits were flawless they not. Ditto with ordering from sites like CyberPower or iBuyPower -- it's up to you to check!

    For CPU ; Microcode Update -> Disabled
    For RAM ; Ignore Memory Error Messages -> Enabled

    IMO Set your RAM manually ; Example 1333 CAS 9-9-9-24-2N @ 1.50v
    Memory Voltage -> 1.50v
    Memclock Value -> DDR3-1333
    CL -> 9
    tRCD -> 9
    tRP -> 9
    tRAS -> 24
    2T Command -> 2
