I'm having problems with my Gigabyte 990XA UD3 motherboard,
I accidentally put to many volts into my North bridge - broke my system
I have to remove my bios battery to get my system to work again. I have been having problems
with my motherboard SATA connections, RAM won't run at right speed and can't install sound - lan drivers.
I think my motherboard is broke but want a second opinion on anything to could be.
Is there anyway I can test my cpu to make sure it's okay? memory already testing with memtest86 and passed.
If it works after unplugging and replugging the CMOS battery then the motherboard might be ok.
Enter bios then reset the settings to the default. Update the bios.
What problems have you been having with the Sata connectors?
Updated bios already and clocked my processor back to stock. The problems with the sata ports were it wouldn't recognize hard drives etc and since posting this I have got the system to be fully function apart from my on-board audio won't work. I have gone through the usual motions of uninstalling disabling and updating and it won't work.
