Hi guys! Last night i was surfing the web as I usualy do and suddenly i got a black screen.. I pressed the reset button and upon looking to the LCD poster i saw that it was stuck on "innit rom". I cleared the CMOS and restarted the system. The usual beep and Asus ROG splash screen appeared but antything happened after that. Looking to the LCD poster i saw that it said "cmos err". Then i removed all the ram sticks but one, cleared the cmos again with no effect, the "cmos err appeared again". I tried different sticks and different memory banks without sucess. Then I switched the 6970 with my old 4770, but on a different pcie slot and the same error appeared... I unplugged my hard drives and it would still give me the same error. Then i switched the psu but "cmos err" was still there. After that i removed the motherboard battery and left it like that until this morning. Then i pressed the start button the board beeped as usual the asus splash screen was there like every other time, but right before the "cmos err" for like 1second i was able to see the failed overclock message and the F1 and F2 options to get into the bios. This event lead me to the conclusion that something was wrong with the cpu. I grabed my old PII 955BE and switched it with the 1100T but the "cmos err" still persists. I should note that i can ear two short beeps (sometimes it is only one) at the same time that "cmos err" appears. Is the motherboard fried? What should i do? I hope you guys can help me!
