Issues with BIOS.

Not sure if posting in correct section so if i am, my appologise.


My computer was on infinate restarting loop, it flashes screen and restarts instantly. To get rid of that issue I have reset my BIOS with jumper.

Once I have done so, PC starts, fans are working, everything starts normally for about 5 seconds and that's it. Monitor never switches on, mouse + keyboard never switch on / flash and computer never boots, it just does start up for 5 seconds and that is it.

Please help, I dunno what to do.

My mother board is: P8H61-MX USB3.

For rebooting I was using in motherboard graphic card.

If any other information is needed, I will provide it.

Did you put the BIOS jumper back where it was before you reset the BIOS? Can you make sure that it is actually on both pins, and you didn't put it on wrong?

This is how to do it in the manual. Make sure that the jumper is on the default pins.

I have done everything according to the picture above, however issue that I am having is a bit different.

According to the manual for my mother board I stick in upto 8 gig per ram stick with upto 2133 ddr3, so I upgraded my ram sticks for 4 gig each2133 mhz x2, used them for about a week without an issue but now if I got 2 sticks on my motherboard PC doesn't boot up.

In bios settings while I only have 1 stick in, it automatically sets it to 1333 mhz, but once I up it to 2133 screen goes black and pc doesn't load.

I am confused...

Do you have to adjust the voltage on your RAM from stock? Many RAM sticks above 1600 MHz require that the voltage be set higher than 1.35V or 1.5V. Mine have to be set to 1.65V to get them to work above 1333 MHz.

Check the voltage spec of your RAM, and set your RAM voltage accordingly. It also wouldn't hurt to set your RAM at 1600, until you get a stable boot with all of your sticks. Then you can start raising the speed up.

Also check to make sure that your RAM sticks are seated properly and that they haven't popped out of their slots, since you recently been adjusting them.

I am going to look stupid now but... where do I check ideal voltage for it, and how can I adjust it? :|

Thank you very much for bringing my attention to this <3

BIOS and AHCI Issues
A little while ago, I noticed that my motherboard's BIOS was configured to use IDE instead of AHCI. I don't know if I installed Windows 7 while it was in IDE mode and didn't realize it or if the BIOS just switched it by itself (can it do that)? I've read there's a way to switch it back to AHCI mode...
