    Does my mobo need butter?

    Is it toast?

    New Foxconn A7DA-S, with the wrong CMOS pin ID'd on the board and manual (known problem). Took a awhile to figure it out, and now the system boots to Linux/WIndows fine, but the screens flash rapidly during POSTing, until the user login splash screen lights up.

    Can't get F/C tech support til tomorrow.

    Anyone know the flashing screen problem, probably caused by booting with CMOS jumpers wrong?

    Hold the guesses and the 'me too's please...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    If it boots, it's not ready to be buttered. When my Intel mobo bios is configured to display detailed data, it also "flashes" as it rapidly displays different screens of data. It never leaves them up long enough to read anything... Oh well, it doesn't seem to affect anything in the running system.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
