Loat in Space
 
I'm building a FM2-A55M-E33 with an Kingston SSD (with win7 on it) a seagate 500 GB that I recover using "Kill Disk" 8GB Crucial sniper class of RAM a GTX 550Ti GPU, A6 5400k CPU with stock cooling system. The problem is that when it boots shows the BIOS splash for a few seconds then is gone:mad:. The other thing is that It won't recognize the keyboard so can do much with it. The curious thing is that it works fine with Linux Live. I'm using it right now to write this post. Does anyone knows what the heck is going on:confused:. Sorry to bother you with this stuff but I needed a relief valve. Thank you all.]:D

This is what I get when the BIOS splash dtssapears:
EFI Shell Version 2.31 [4.654]
Current running mode 1.1.2
map: Cannot find requiere map name.
Press esc in 4 seconds to skip startup.nsh any other key to continue.
Shell> "cursor here".
But there is nothing I can do because the keyboard is not responding.

Sounds like Grub may have a problem..
I wonder if its corrupt?

Did you have Linux on it previously or Windows?

Strongwolf 14th December, 2013 10:52 PM

Windows

booman 16th December, 2013 02:56 PM

Does the keyboard work in Windows 7?
Since you havn't installed Linux i know its not Grub.
Sounds like a possible hardware problem in Windows...
Are you using a special keyboard or the standard?

Strongwolf 16th December, 2013 08:29 PM

The standard. But now I have another problem. After a couple of days of regular using I was in USB Live using Linux when I had the need for turning the machine off (while in Linux Live) great mistake. Then she doesn't want to start up or anything. I took the 20 pins and the 4 pins plugs out, take out the battery and short the clear CMOS jumper. Then I wait for about 30 - 45 minutes. When assembled the hole thing It started the CPU fan spontaneously. I only turn on the button of the PSU and the fan start spinning. This baffles me.:eek::eek: Don't know what could be happening. Any idea?:banghead:

BTW I still can't find Gamers on Linux using Bing.

That isn't good.
Hopefully its not a hardware problem... that would suck!

Starting to sound like the BIOS has some kind of problem.
I wonder if the BIOS needs an update?

I had an ASUS board that I used for gaming over about two years and one day the video would not appear. I tried everything from replacing power supply, swapping RAM, to unplugging everything and it turned out to be a Bad BIOS chip.
It never happened to me before and has not happened since.

Try updating the BIOS, if it will let you. If not, look on the motherboard and see if there is a removable chip. IF there is, you will be able to purchase a new chip on ebay and test it.

Then again... you may want to read some of these reviews on newegg.com
MSI FM2-A55M-E33

Seems this board may have some bugs and updating/flashing the BIOS may create even more problems.

Strongwolf 17th December, 2013 07:52 PM

Mine doesn't have dual pci-e slots. Still sound familiar what they complaint of. I fix it after the post, but now again is making the same. I think there is a short some where. Any way nice to hear from you and thank you for the Linux link. Just what I need.

Daniel ~ 17th December, 2013 08:06 PM

Whatta ya say....just like old times hey boys! ":O}

booman 17th December, 2013 08:46 PM

Yeah, could be a "short"
Not sure how to go about checking that, unless there is a grounding problem.
You could always check it in another case.

By the way, we have a member at GOL: graywolf.theheathen
I thought that was you!

Strongwolf 19th December, 2013 12:00 PM

No, my name Strongwolf is taken in a lot of sites,but that's OK. I finally make the FM2 A55. Use the "olde Yank it off" technique and it work wonderful. Then came the all Mighty MS Validation Tool hidden on an update and shut me down. My Win XP is legal so I call MS and now all is well:thumbsup:. Have to do a new installation thou. BTW I bought an GeForce GTX 560 Ti and I can't use it cause the DVI adapter of the PCI 2 that I was using didn't fit the plug in the card:banghead:Do you know of a work around for this?

Strongwolf 19th December, 2013 12:02 PM

Yeah, like the Good Old Times, Daniel.

When you called Microsoft did you have to enter all the numbers in the phone?
I have done that a few times... what a pain!

So the GeForce GTX 560 Ti probably has two DVI outputs. You monitor doesn't support them?

Strongwolf 28th December, 2013 04:24 PM

No, it only has one DVI port. Is some kind of special DVI adapter or something. But it has a VGA port right beside the DVI. I'm using it now but I put the VC on e-bay, just in case.
