    Default ep45 ud3p wont post, persistant bleeping, reboot loop.

    Hi guys, new here, but i have a problem with my pc. Its been set up and working fine for 2 years, but the other night, it crashed, and started making a weird low pitch growling noise through the speakers (onboard sound being used).

    After that, it rebooted once fine, no problems, now it posts maybe 1/20 times, and actually loads windows maybe 1/50 tries, but it always ends up crashing. Most of the time, when turned on, it either turns on, all lights on mb/ram and all fans come on fine, and there is no video, it stays like this for about ten seconds, then reboots, and same thing happens. Other times, it will beep in quick succession, maybe 15 times, then reboot. Other times it crashes at the post screen (where you enter bios). other times it crashes when windows is loading. Most common is the bleeping or no post.

    Because there is such a wide range of symptoms, and nothing has been changed, i cant diagnose this, any help would be much appreciated, i've had a search, but as i said, i cant diagnose it cause its so temperamental. Would post spec, but as its been running, i don't see how it will help, if anyone needs to know i'll find out. Cant remember off the top of my head, it is overclocked (dont think i've changed the mem, but proc was 3.16ghz standard, now running 3.6) It has been like this since new.

    When it did get to windows the once, all temps were normal (below 40c) and in bios, again, temps normal.

    Really stumped me this, going to strip it down and rebuild it, see if that helps. All i've tried so far it leaving it off the power over night, and pressed the power button before reconnecting to power. Dont know where to start! Thanks in advance guys

    yes,if you go in the bios and make a note of the settings before you clear it then you can load optimized defaults after clear cmos and then re-enter any bios/overclock settings

    it will wipe any overclock and reset to default bios settings when you clear cmos/remove battery so you will have to go through each bios page and write your settings down before you clear it so you can re-enter them later

    Thanks for that, cmos battery is currently out, going to try that. its been suggested that it could be the sata controller? as this would explain the temperamentality?

    No luck with the battery or changing sata ports + controllers. Its a sequence of 22 beeps, all equal time apart. There are 2-5 cycles of 22, rebooting between, before it shows a post screen, cant tell if its crashed on the post screen, or waiting for command, as I haven't a ps2 keyboard spare. Any more ideas are appreciated. I've also reseated the memory and graphics card.

    Cheers, Craig

    It just got past the post screen and it said

    "Warning: main bios checksum error
    Retrieving recovery source from hpa...

    Detecting ide drives"

    Any ideas what this means?

    corrupted bios maybe,if you can get to the splash screen you can press end key and re-flash the bios but make sure keep dmi pool data is unticked,then it will rebuild it when you re-boot,only if your stable from withing q-flash though

    flashing using q-fash you will need a usb stick formatted in fat32 and just the .bin bios file on it

    p.s. if you dont wanna try that then try leaving battery out overnight,sometimes it needs overnight to fully clear the cmos

    any ide dvd drives installed or hdd's?? check the cables data/power that there fully plugged in
