    Default P35-DS4 Problems

    Hi guys an gals!
    Got my new mobo and cpu for christmas but found that i cant install XP, it just locks up at different stages, no error messages or anything just completely freezes!! Think it might be a bad board?! Also the board wont boot up unless there is 2 sticks in the RAM slots! One doesnt boot up it just freezes on the Gigabyte splash screen!
    Any help is greatly appreciated from anybody!! Everything locks up! No respnso from screen or mouse or keyboard.

    Where is your DVD player hooked up to? Sata or Gsata?

    Do not use the F9 bios use F8 or even better F7. Then use memtest86+ or windows memtest to check your memory.

    To G-Sata but was previously hooked up to Sata so not that!
    I'm on F10 after F8 failed. Rev.2.0
    It locks up on memtest supplied on Ubuntu CD. Anything i try locks up

    Hi, this may sound a bit weird but how about trying a power source with only 20-pin socket for motherboard? I´m trying to figure out all the problems in my own rev.2.0 board and that ´contemporary switch´ stabilazed my system as far as i can see but haven´t checked every issue yet. Try it and please report back!

    ´cause with 24-pin socket (HX620W) i got problems with my video card and after chance to 20-pin (350W) that´s gone. Before this MB i had the video card in other computer (350W) just a few days and it worked flawlessly!

    Just give it a try when you can!

    The point: In BIOS with 24-pin socket (Power 620W) and also with 20-pin (Power 350W) every level of Volt is OK. (How come when it really was not! With 24-pin it was getting too much or just ´dirty electricity´?)

    when I was first setting up this board
    I had an audio problem. the fix was to remove the MS UAA bus driver . Then get the latest audio driver from Realtek and install . Don't recall where I got that information as I lurk several forums.
