I changed system.ini and added a few lines like the video here. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNTGPQsj02Y)
After I restarted my comp i got (1 long beep 3 short beeps)
For asus that means there is no video card or bad video card RAM (No vga Detected)
I thought i got rick rolled so i just removed the power cables for 2 min and plugged them in again. And it worked. I reinstalled Windows 7 formatted also under the instalation it restarts wich is normal but i got no screen and 1 long and 3 short beeps.
It continues and restarts again but now i have picture and im logging in to windows for the first time to type in my computer name ect..
I download the latest drivers from Nvidia and restarts, same problem. Downloaded all updates for windows, I updated by Bios to the latest still the same problem on startup, beeps with blank screen.
Prior to the edit of the system.ini my computer was up to date with all drivers beside bios.
These are what I have done
* Removed the Gpu to the second Pci slot. no fix
* Tested with 1 memory, No fix, TWo memory same
* changed the slott of the memory. no fix
* Removed my DVD and all HDD. no fix
* THe GPU is correctly inserted, all cables are correctly inserted. No dust or anything in the case its clean atm.
* Never overclocked my computer.
* Gpu temp is 45 atm because I disassembled it and cleaned it and added new thermal paste. There is a bit of excess but i dont think that matters a lot.
* Cleaned the GPu golden lating with ereaser even some alcohol. no fix
* Resetted CMOS by removed the battery and changing the place of the jumper. Doesn't help.
My computer Works only if I disconnect power to the PSU and leave it for atleast 2-3 hours to discharge. After that it works with only 1 sometimes 2 restarts before it gives me the beeping code again.
Efter I start my computer I get two choices f1 or f2 to either load default bios or continue to bios.
I don't know what the problem is. Formatting the comp and reinstalling should fix all the software problems. If it was a software problem to begin with.
Hardware problem ? Well why is it working after 2-3 hours? No crashing or freezing or anything it works like it did before.
I had 1202 bios when i got the problem i have now updated it to 1501 something and still the same.
I have two questions. Can system.ini do so much damage?
Second q. How to fix this problem.
I had system restore disabled when i got the problem. But this problem should have gone away after a clean Format and install of windows..
And I have entered BIOS many times and set it to default. Still the same after a restart. I even once tried giving the Ram 1.3 voltage and changed something called Asus initiate graphic adapter peg/pci --> to pci/peg. Still the same problem.
1 PSU for my 6 big fans
1 Psu for Motherboard, hdd, gpu all the necessary stuff.
I'm currently using the computer after 6 hours of sleep, so it working after a long shutdown. o_0
This is very common problem and I have spent 2 days searching for a solution. You guys are my last hope
I read something like this on the internet.
That someone tested his friends gpu and it worked fine on his machine. His Gpu was then tested on his friends and it worked aswell.
It's as if the GPU and Motherboard became incompatible for some reason.
