    A) I have to find the pin then. That's going to be a bit difficult currently.

    B) Is that all that connects them? Cause I'd hate to find out its something else.

    i thinkso,it looks like a soldered joint to me,you may even get away with e very very tiny blob of high strength superglue,as long as its conductive i cantsee why it wouldnt work

    Yes that should work, I'd try glue instead of solder, but only place it there then glue so there isn't glue between the pin and the PCB.

    I would also ONLY try this after you are 100% certain they are denying your RMA, so you would have nothing to loose

    OK, so new CPU in same board, no change. No boot, even after every recovery option. RMA'ing it today unless someone has another idea?

    Are you sure the CPU is supported by the BIOS installed in the board?

    If you are not sure what BIOS it is, then it's likely to be an old one, so you should test with a CPU supported by the first version of the BIOS just to be sure before you decide anything.

    Yeah, all Phenom II processors are supported by the BIOS since F1, my board came with F3 and worked for a while before it died. Even the X6 models are supported. I tried to update to the F4 BIOS but that failed.

    When did it fail, and how? Is this was caused the problems, did you try the methods I PM'd you since the bad flash, or did I not PM you?

    4+7 method will work every time if the issue is a corrupted MAIN BIOS

    It failed basically right after I flashed the BIOS. I got 1 reboot out of it. Changed the BIOS settings to AHCI (why does it default to IDE anyway?), saved and rebooted. BAM! Boot loop.

    Yeah, you PM'ed me and I tried everything, even the things you didn't tell me (recovery from HDD which I had disabled, recovery from BIOS disk, driver disk, etc) and nothing.

    Disciple, how are you going with this?

    They use default IDE because not every user knows how to setup OS (Mainly XP) with SATA Drivers.

    So 4+7 pin short with a working CPU did not help, are you sure you did it properly (Sorry, can't remember if I PM'd you a run down on how exactly I use that method, and what to expect/best way to do it)

    I have maybe the same problem as you


    upgrade it to F3 then F4 and revert it to F3 AND back to F4, one reboot and fail


    What the beeps that comes out of the MOBO says? are you sure is not the PSU?

    is not "power error"?

    my system turns on, but it just keeps beeping saying according as Gigabyte is "power error"

    I've switch the whole system MOBO-CPU-RAM-video card, unplugged everything and the same exact thing happens with the PSU on the other rig, turns on but won't go into the bios
