NVRAM issue

Hi guys.

I am moving my PC to a new case, with a couple of new components (DVD drive, front USB).

However, when I start up the new PC, the normal bios screen comes up, then the CPU description is displayed and then when it comes to the RAM, it says ...

"Checking NVRAM.." then stops

Any ideas on how to sort this? The operating system is ME.

Cheers.

Probably need to go into the BIOS and have it detect the DVD and see if the usb setting are correct.

maybe try clearing your nvram with the jumper on the system board.

TFJEFF is quite right try that there may be a setting to do this in the BIOS if not a onboard jumper
Also try pulling out components right down to just leaving the cpu and ram etc ever ide/floppy cables and try booting each time a component is removed.
Maybe a card or device is holding the system down.
 Process of elimination.

Hi. Thanks for all your comments. It was the USB card that was causing the problem. It works fine now its removed. Would clearing the NVRAM and redetecting the usb ports help in making it work would you expect? Or would you just avoid using the card anymore?

Thanks again for all your help.

I would just avoid using the card. They are not expensive if you need to buy a new one !
