Im trying for 3 weeks now to find a solution to my problem with my K8N Neo2 board, tried everything I could think off , but still no luck.
My board doest post at default setting 5xHT.
If I do a bios reset , it boots and it is stable for hours, I can install and play whatever I want.
But after shutdown I get the same problem. I have to do a bios reset again to start... and so on.
I alreay bought a new PSU, and tried to have only Board/VGA/RAM installed just to see if thats a power issue. But that didnt help.
And since I can play any 3d game under XP for hours I dont think this is a PSU issue anyway.
I changed my ram setting to cl3 but no luck with that either.
tried diefferent bios updates, but still nothing
The only think that worked for me was to set the HT in Bios @4x.
After that I get no boot problems anymore.
My questions are:
1)Is there any connection to RAM and HT, the only think I didnt change in my configuration sofar is my DDR RAM.
2)Could this be a board issue? should I rma it?
3)What kind of impact does this HT has to my system, what do I loose from power?
Of course I didnt even try to o/c .
Please guys tell me what you think, as I run out of ideas.
Thanx in advance
