My DX79SI hangs with a POST code of 58.
My question is: How can I get my system working again? Is it time to ask for an RMA? Thank you.
I just noticed that when the screen went black (with the cursor in the upper left corner) the POST code changed to 5B (resetting SATA). What on earth is going on with the BIOS?
The BIOS screen finally showed up after about ten minutes of the blinking cursor. Yahoo! The BIOS version is SIX7910J.86A.0553.2012.1027.1042. Not sure what to check here... I rebooted with the BIOS jumper back to normal and POST code 58 is back...
Waiting a long time eventually brought Windows 8 back. But why does BIOS wait so long at POST 58? (USB optimization is set to ""...) It takes roughly 10 minutes to boot my DX79SI - I don't feel that's reasonable...
My system still takes an unreasonable amount of time to boot... However, the system does start up eventually... Now my mouse is suffering the slow and jerky problem. I don't know if it's related to the BIOS issue but from what I've read online, there appears to be a connection.
Anyone interested in a BIOS version: SIX7910J.86A.0460.2012.0327.1627
Which I have seen to be the most stable BIOS as I have tried them all.
If anyone wants that BIOS in a ROM format just PM me or you can downgrade to that BIOS version
I know this is a dead thread for an old board... but this is a problem with the firmware on the Renesas USB 3 controller.
The firmware downloads are only available for the DX79TO and DX79SR motherboards despite being most likely the same controller chip as these boards were released simultaneously and we see the same error listed here from most users.
If anyone at Intel is listening then could you please post a new firmware for the DX79SI motherboard as this error is inexcusable
I see you are working on another thread and reporting same thing. Please keep on this thread:
