Question about Gigabyte K8N-SLI (GAK8NSLI) Motherboard
I upgraded the bios months ago and everything seemed OK. Later, I added a second DVD to my DVD burner. Wanted to read write to burn DVDs in one quick motion. I started to notice that it took a second push of the start button, then a third time before it work turn on the computer. Then it wouldn't start at all. I took out the CMOS battery and found it dead. I installed a new one. It worked fine for about a week when the symptoms started all over again. I installed a third battery and this time the battery was completely drained to a dead battery after one startup. Any help out there? gigabyte GA-K8N-sli amd 3800 x2 1.5g of memory evga e-gforce 7600gt sli video card 650 power supply
OK lets see here! Make sure your CMOS jumper is set properly on the board(Set to Normal) or Did you configure your bios after flashing the bios(going into bios and Load Optimized Defaults!)? or I don't think it would be another device in the system, but you can try troubleshooting by starting up with only what you need to run the machine (Mobo, memory harddrive, keyboard and mouse) then one by one adding devices back! or Did you have problems like this b4 you flashed the bios! Try flashing the bios back to an older version! post back if anything new or if i'm way off! Good Luck regards, babb
