D975XBX2 BIOS update problem

Calling all XBX2 owners

I had a couple problems to start but it was from the BIOS version. After the next gen updates I was up and running. I do believe what was posted earlier is correct. You come here to get problems solved. I just was checking back to see it there were other problems that I needed to know about. This bo...

I think I solved my problem

I moved the system memory to another identical system and ran memtest86. Memory threw 204,800 errors. So the memory is on an RMA back today. I then tried working memory in the new system and got as far as the 94 or EB post and no further, even in maintenance mode. System does not see anything but th...

Works on My unit

I am running BIOS ver 2507. The only hiccup I see is if I start CPUz or TAT (Intels Thermal Analysis Tool) first, then sometimes IDCC (Intel Desktop Control Center) will not fire on the first or second attempt. Other than that Desktop Utils and Control Center work fine.

SATA ATAPI

Thanks !

I just built my son an identical system to mine and he bought a SATA DVD burner and I was worried it might not be supported.

Thanks again.

D975XBX2 and SATA ATAPI CD/DVD RW

Anyone have any experience with using an SATA CD/DVD RW drive with their XBX2? A friend of mine just built a system using the 680i board and it works with that board but I have heard nothing about the XBX2, He did say that the SATA DVD drive burns a DVD disk in a fraction of the time. Just doing som...

Use the Intel Matrix SATA controller and plug into any port of the 4. Looking straight down on the board with (rear outputs at the top) use the bottom left controller port (that should be 0) Go into the BIOS and set the system to base defaults and disable the Marvel (secondary controller) No tweakin...

Failed boot attempt

Are you use the Intel Matrix SATA controller?
If not switch to that one.

Which version of the BIOS are you using.
If not the latest upgrade to the latest.

Let me know what you have.

COD2 is great and even better on a NEW 2.4 system.

That is a question better answered by othere right here. I asked so many questions here because I an a NOB when it comes to OC'ing.

Memory reset

I found that if your system gives the screen that it would not post and to go back and change settings if you leave the timing at 5,5,5,15 but set the memory to 533 then save and reboot and immediately go back into the setup and reset the timing to 4,4,4,12 it will then post. Sometimes you will need...

Currently neither work under the VISTA OS, at least not for me. Has anyone got them to run with VISTA?

XFX makes a great card. I currently have the 7950GT and it is a great card. I probably will not make the drawing (I don't post that often) but their cards are tops.

Scracthy Sound

I got the Sigmatel finally working like it should. I am guessing whatever driver I had installed was not right or did not install properly. My next issue is with 2 devices not showing that they are installed properly in the device manager. I am going to post that next.

Thanks for the info
