DQ45CB Motherboard Problems

Hi there, I have a problem with this board since i changed settings in the BIOS of this board. What happens is when i turn the computer on the red amt light comes on, fans spin then AMT light goes off then the computer.

It stays on for about 3 secs. Can you help me.

I Have already tried:

- Changing CPU

- Changing RAM

- Taking CMOS battery out (For 5 Hours)

- Changing Power supply

- An taking out most of the components( When i take out the 4 pin power the board works, but i know it won't boot) (also when the ram is taken out it works normally and beeps)

System Specs:

- Core 2 Duo E6300

- 2 GB (was 4)

- 500W power supply

- Nvidia Quadro FX3800

- 1TB HD

- Windows 8.1

Do you remember what settings were changed in BIOS?

Did you try reloading default settings or a BIOS recovery?

You may also try moving the BIOS jumper to configuration mode for the maintenance menu to appear. See pages 59-61 of the Technical Product Specification.

1. I changed ram overclock settings

2. can't do that because the computer only stays on for 3 secs and turns on again (It repeats)

Did you try booting with only one memory stick?
