I have a Intel DQ65GF motherboard that has worked great for years .Recently I decided to toy around in the cmos and changed the ram setting from 533mhz to 667mhz to match the listing on the ram I have installed . After reboot I get no post no beeps all fans power on but nothing else happens .
I have tried resetting the bios multiple times removed all components aside from the cpu and fan it did beep like crazy as it should with no ram . I have tried different ram no changes . Verified all connections including mounting screws . Tried other psu's .
I tried a different mobo as well though I am not sure of its working condition it was new but got exposed to moisture and has a small bit of rust around the audio jacks it gave me a single beep with ram installed but also did not post.
System worked fine before the change in cmos at this point I am completely clueless on what could be wrong if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this or even if I should be looking into the mobo or cpu have gone bad from this change I would be greatful
Specs Intel DQ965GF mobo .Unsure of revision number at this time as I cant get to the tower ( In the closet blocked off by xmas stuff)
Intel celeron 3.33 GHZ cpu
2gb PC25300 ram
Thanks for the reply . Ive tried both . I removed the battery for a full 8 hours while I was at work . Tried each stick of ram as well as ram from the system I'm on now and tried this systems ram on that board aswell . I'm already all over ebay looking for replacement parts just wanted to try here for one last shot at getting this working again without buying more hardware
Edit to add: I only tried changing this setting because the system had began to perform to slow even after full formatting and clean windows install was hoping it would help improve its performance ( Forgot to mention that in my first post I work nights and right now is my equivilent of staying up till 6am so my brain isnt quite functioning 100%)
Thanks for the info . At this time I'm just looking for a cheap fix to get this rig back up . I only use it for video ( its basicly my tv/stereo since I dont own either) I'm soon building a new rig to replace the one I am on now at which time this one will replace the rig I'm trying to repair I found a ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 on ebay which includes a Intel E2180 cpu and a 2gb stick of ram for $65 USD considering getting that for the time being . Any reccomendation as to if this is a good buy ? I'm not familiar with ASUS boards as I've only really ever had Intel boards
