Question about SuperMicro X6DAL-TG Motherboard
I've gone trough 2 motherboards, 3 NVIDIA cards and 4 Gigs of RAM trying to find a solution to the dreaded 8 beeps that my system suddenly developed as it would not boot. I finally installed an old PCI card and I see video. Can two motherboards PCIX slots both go bad? Is one of my Video cards "burning out" this slot? would anyone please help?
Yeah, but it's not the slot; it's the northbridge chipset or a PCI bridge driving it that's perhaps overheated or set funny. If you use 2 CPUs they can fall out of step several ways, or your clock circuits can age badly by themselves! Got fresh CMOS batteries in there? It could be that PCIe was merely asked to run at a frequency it won't run. You should carefully make sure the board is nice and clean, reflash or at least clear settings on the BIOS, confirm the PCI videocard boots, make sure all the chips are cooled well, and again see if you can get a PCIe card to work without complaint.
