do not power off while bios is saving settings
my new nf7 arrived today, and it's not really working as it should :s
if i change any setting in bios i get this message:
"do not power off while bios is saving"
and then my screen goes blank (fan on graka stops spinning too)
if i clear cmos, i can load defaults
again: "do not power off while bios is saving", followed by a succefull post and boot
but when i change anything in bios, after the reboot i will get the message again, followed by a blank screen
i allready loosened the screwes on my HS, 'coz i read that too much pressure could cause some weird errors

flashed bios, reseated ram and loaded failsafe defaults
-> no error
loaded optimized defaults
-> no error
put everything to 'user define'
changed multiplier, voltages, ram settings
chang fsb with 1 MHz
->do not power off while bios is saving settings
been testing some more, and if i change the fsb, even by 1, i get this error
and then i get a blank screen, and have to clear cmos
OR bios loads defaults after reboot (pc always reboots after the error message)
i've even reinstalled the complete pc, wich din't help offcourse

is your ram set to SPD instead of manual? try manual!

ram is twinmos pc3200 50B chips
tried diffirent ram settings now, manual, optimal, aggresive, spd
bad cpu would be weird, as it work just fine yesterday on that kx7
(tx for the links btw)
edit: ram is 2*512Mb
editē: it has been folding for 12+ hours at default bios settings
