Rampage Extreme III Booting Problems


New member

Hi All,

I have a system built around a Rampage Extreme III. Until recently it has run like an absolute charm but in the last couple of days it has picked up a fault.

After shutting down the computer it won't reboot again until I have turned it off completely (from the wall) drained all the residual power and try again. After doing this it boots right into windows and behaves perfectly and can also be left on for as long as required.

When it fails to boot the motherboard gets stuck on the CPU diagnosis light for a while, then starts to boot, gets to the Marvell controller bios screen and doesn't go any further.

I don't really know what could be wrong. What would be causing this? As I said if I completely power down it works perfectly? But it is driving me crazy as I can't use hibernate.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

These RED SATA ports are for data hard drives only. ATAPI devices are not supported.
