Evga 790i Ultra problem
Hello, i have had this incredibly unstable board for over a year, and it has had its good months and it bad ones. It is weird how it can work well for a long time, then be plagued with problems for a month.
Here is a new issue i ran into recently... If i unplug my computer for any amount of time over an hour it will not start up. To be clear it will go to the post screen, then detect Ide drives and sit there for a minute compared to the seconds it usually takes, once that is done half of the time it will detect my Sata Dvd drive, and other times it wont. Once finally getting to the Xp load screen it will sit there frozen until i reboot. Sometimes it will rarely boot up after six or seven reboots, but when it doesn't i do the weirdest thing to get it to start.
If i open the case and move the hard drive from one sata port to another it will sometimes start and work for a few days, then when it stopped working again i tried moving the Hdd power cable to another port on my 1000w power supply. That also fixed it for a few days until i unplugged it again. To me that does not make any sense because i am constantly switching my hdd to different sata port, some times they work and sometimes they don't. But my computer always recognizes the Hdd's them selves.
One other problem that might be a symptom, When gaming the screen will freeze, yet the sound works. The mouse is still responsive, and the keyboard lights (Caps,NumLock) respond but only 2 mins after i press them.
Build: Evga 790i Ultra
Ocz platinum 1333mgz 4gb
1000w Silverstone Psu
2x seagate 500gb Hds
I am considering buying a Intel Extreme board if i can't fix this one once and for all.
Thanks for your help =)
