In what order are your Boot Devices listed in the BIOS?

Does the BIOS keep your settings after a power off cycle?

What PSU do you have?

Boot order:
-Hitachy
-WDC
-HD dvd

Bios keeps setting after power off cycle.

It's a new PSU, a replacement for the one that came with the case.
I can't read the model and make.

Thanks

OK, we'll assume the new PSU is good (unless that's when the problem started) and that your CMOS battery is also fine.

Is Windows on the Hitachi or the Western Digital hard drive? If it's on the Western Digital (WDC), set it to be first.

I tried downloading a manual for your motherboard, but XFX was making it a pain...

What does your manual say about the Debug LED code(s)? (List both 02 and 20 since you're not sure which one you've got.)

I would check all of my mobo connections carefully, swap cables to see if it makes a difference.

Test your RAM using memtest86 CD scan overnight to stress test, or at least 5-6 passes. Swap your RAM sticks.

Test your HD's using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

I would also make sure the MBR is not damaged by booting the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, clicking through to Recovery Tools list to Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to let it repair or rewrite the MBR. Just to make sure all is correct, mark your Win7 partition Active first: Partition - Mark as Active

goshhhh

Hi people, I am still struggling with this situation.
I wonder if anyone know here how to uninstall my motherboards drivers that windows installed automatically.
Someone assured me that the culprit of my problem is a driver conflict because I should install them manually.
A problem that usually happens with xfx 750i sli mobo's.

So please, someone could show me how to remove the already installed drivers so I can install the ones I: downloaded from XFX site..

THANKS!!!

The manual does not say nothing about this codes

It isn't necessary to uninstall the mobo drviers. Just download the latest Win7 Chipset from the SUpport Downloads webpage for your model computer or mobo, rightclick to Run as Admin and let it install.

If there is a problem, you'll need to go into the ReadMe to find out what drivers are included in package, then browse to the unzipped file location of the chipset from each Device's Driver tab until it picks up the driver, e.g. SATA controller, SM bus, etc.

Others may have a better way to do it, but this has worked for me in cases except the rare case where the chipset package installs correctly and asks for a restart, but then no Device drivers are updated.

There may also be additional installation steps to follow in the included ReadMe file beyond just executing the file as Admin, then restarting when prompted.
