  1. Since this issue i thought i thought solved 2 days ago. The rig was running fine every time. Checking temps was fine, cpu running at 45 and gpu running at 34-40 depending on load.This issue has returned. However the previous steps i took dont fix this issue this time.. In start up the cpu light is on during boot suggesting the cpu is the issue. This mother board has q led`s on the mother board which during boot check each part when booting in the following order; CPU> DRAM> VGA> Boot device. I have taken out the cpu to check and reseat it to no avail. Sadly to say i believe the cpu and /or the mother board is dead. I will have to wait until January/February to purchase replacements. No gaming for me over the Christmas holidays. Anyone know some one selling an identical mother board and or cpu as my current spec please message me. will go for new cpu first as i have been overclocking it to 4g from 2.8G for 10 years (poor thing) lol. Can only hope that santa is real to deliver me a new mother board and cpu. lol if any of you have any thoughts on my issue would be greatly appreciated. G
  2. PC stop working! no Post beeps. I had a major issue 2 days ago. Switch pc on all booted well. Left it for an hour (went to pub for Sunday roast) dont have power save/hibernate/ screen stitch off and such. Came back and screens off but pc fans and g/cards still running as normal. Tried wake up from keyboard......nothing.. tried reset button.....nothing... tried hold power off.....nothing. Switched pc off via switch on psu. Switched back on. No post beeps! Fans start (m/board and gpu and case) nothing else. Tried replacing cmos battery, cmos reset using jumper. Still nothing. Having a asus rampage 3 extreme (yeah old i know) luck for me this board has a set of LEDs which light when an issue with start up. Checked, CPU light lite? First thought CPU failed or m/board died. Disheartened (my baby i built 10 years ago, specs below) thinking its had it or needs investment to fix. Following day i put the build on the operating table for inspection. LOL. First unplugged all power/reset buttons. Nothing. Unplugged all hard drives ssd drives and dvd drive (yes i have a DVD rom drive! Lol. I have physical copies of games) Unplugged GPU. After doing this the Q leds (4 leds on the mother board to indicate an issue with either dram, cpu, vga, boot device) indicated dram an issue. Removed all 4Gb (24Gb initially) sticks except 1 x in the primary slot. Powered up and for the first time i got post beeps and looking at the Led`s stated vga (gpu missing). Put the gpu back in and still got post beeps and was able to get to bios screen for the first time. From then on in slowly put back in all remaining rams sticks back in 1 by 1 and all is well. System working as it was before the issue. No idea what the cause was but it is working as it was before. Would like to know any input to what caused this issue. Thought i would post this if anyone has a similar issue. My sad pc specs; asus rampage 3 extreme i7 930 2.8Gb o/c @ 4.0Gb (1st gen i7) 4 physical cores) 24Gb ballistic (6 x 4Gb ram) 1600mhz asus Gtx 1080 Strix wd 650GB hard drive master drive Samsung spinpiont 250Gb hard drive wd 250Gb SSd 850w Corsair AX850 psu 1 x dvd rom drive Antec 1200 case. Duel boot win xp 64 and win 7 (main) os All is well now but a strange issue. hope these steps may help someone else with a similar issue. If someone could point to what may have caused the issue would help. Ps: i know its old and the cpu is really outdated but its done me very well for 10 years.(only upgraded the GPU from a ASUS 5970 to the ASUS gtx 1080 2 years ago) Cheers guys
