Random "No Signal" Issue past 3 months on Asus Rampage IV Black Edition x79 Mobo.

Help! god this is frustrating im keeping up with this past 3months for gods sake!


Yo , Guys Im facing major issue with the Asus Rampage IV BLACK EDITION x79 board (Also im not the only one here Facing this problem there are more who face the Exact problem im writing, Please Help us)

, Recently After Creators Update in Win 10 pro and Nvidia's New Drivers I face a Random Issue Where My PC Would Crash out of nowhere.

The symptom is Monitor would Show a random "No Signal" while im gaming,Browsing,Rendering or Anything. All lights are on PC shows No Q-Code Error Except 3 times it did show Q-Code Error 40 but it does not show that anymore.

Also Heads Up i checked the Event Log "nvlddmkm stopped responding " is in the Windows log......so i cant say which is making the nvidia driver act so abnormally.

its been 3months and still going with this problem till today.

This is happening Like when im gaming,Drawing,3d modeling,rendering or anything and bam my Monitor/Monitors would get disconnected, this is no issue of psu,gpu im suspecting its cause of Asus Bios being still old in Beta for win 10 or cause of WIndows 10 doing something wrong or Nvidia doing something wrong.

Im in a wreck right now anyone face this issue? cause its random as hell tho i might not crash for a few days but then crash several times in a day. Anyone know about this?


My problem is very similar to this guy here on this thread: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...ck-Edition-X79

I ran many test all hardware is ok even downlclocked still issue remains.

I done following things:


#1.Check PSU - i have 3 PSU all are not defective yet results are same so -PSU no PROBLEM!
#2.Checked RAMs - Meme Test 86 + Ran for 8hrs,Windows ram diognistics also ran - RAM no PROBLEM!
#3.Check for CPU Bent Pins - NOPE! not at all!
#4.Hard Drive - Nope works fine on other pc i spent 3 day Formatting/installing and went through hell.
#5.Check if there is Driver Conflict
*Disabled- Corsair LInk,AntiVIrus,Msi AfterBurner,Intel Virtualization - Nothing conflicts results remain same!
#6.Ran Virus Scans with several antivirus and Anti-malware Tools and did formats none showed a single spec of malware or virus.

#7.Checked GPU- I have GT730 & 240GT old nvidia Cards, That had the same issue too. (Literally no nvidia card gets mercy in this problem)


Weirdly AMD card is not doin this, i dont own one but i borrowed from a friend it didnt crash the 1 whole day.

I am a guy who tries to keep PC Alive so i dont overclock at all, I am pretty 100% sure my every piece of hardware is ok since they stay very low on temp about 40 to 50 max plus not a single component in my PC have crossed 50C+ except the GPU tho 😛 cause i am one of those careful guys.

Also why is there no proper Driver for WIndows 10 for x79 Rampage Baords? @asus?

Update 25th September 2017 - Temporary Solution Found....Works for The Rampage IV Black Edition Board.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


#1.Disable your Compatibility Support Module (CSM) in the Boot Option before u start the System.

#2. So far Disabling CSM has made my System far stable than before...i dont crash anymore, there are 2 program which makes my system
crash even if CSM is disabled that is the Firefox and Bluestacks otherwise disabling CSM has made Nvidia Driver work very Stable for Windows 10.

Don't use firefox while you are gaming u will 100% crash even if CSM is disabled, I suspect the Bug is windows 10 & Nvidia not firefox or Bluestacks.

Additional Steps That must be followed With CSM disabled:

My No signal Issue is not completely gone, it still happens to me the only thing i have manged is to delay to crash, By my method u can run the PC max 7hrs to 12Hrs but some program in windows 10 always trigger the Nvidia Driver to crash, i only have managed to make nvidia driver stable by my random trail and error.


You may have already done the steps i am writing, but please bare with me so we can find the solution together.


#1.use DDU (i know u probably used Display Driver Uninstaller but i just wanna make sure u are doing same thing as me)
#2.Disable Windows 10 Auto Installing Drivers.
#3.Uninstall Flash Player & Quick Time play if you have them, they make nvidia driver act abnormally.
#4.DIsable CSM! YES CHECK THIS AGAIN!
#5.Wipe Secure Boot Keys ...the reason im saying to wipe secure boot keys is cause some people in nvidia forum said they solved some crash doing this.
#6.Use Ccleaner to Wipe every garbage registry. Then restart PC. (DONT CONNECT INTERNET, dont let windows 10 find updates even tho we disabled auto installation of drivers for windows 10 its risky to have internet connected now)
#7.Install latest Nvidia driver. Dont install 3D vision garbage.
#8.Download a Program called TDR Manipulator , this program is very helpful for debugging the nvidia driver.
set TDR delay to 2 or 8 try, restart PC.
https://www.wagnardsoft.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=755

#9. Test ur PC after the Restart and tell me if its working or not.

#10.Report me back what has happened to you system....im here.

#11. Please use this Stable Bios, This Bios was made by User @Holystarlight, thanks to him: www.mediafire.com/download/lv5qgp73pwmn7y7/R4BE.rar

#12.Update: Try This TDR Values:

I am running My System Quite Stable Past 19hrs, I think i made progress with the Stability With the Nvidia Driver, Use The TDR Manupulator and Set the Values (Do note i own a Nvidia TItan X so be aware some values may differ if ur card is way too Old from Fermi Generation it may not work im not sure but u can trail it and set the values default if things go bad.....(well i own 3 gpu Nvidia TItan X,240GT & GT730 so far i didnt test the gt240 but gt730 and Titan X works with the value)....

67826


#13. The main cause of all this mishap is Nvidia driver.....wat i now believe is this is the Nvidia Drivers with Some Voltage Issue, Im playing with the Voltages...Downcloking didnt help, I will increase voltage and test out more.


LAST NOTE: Issue is there system would crash unless a Developer notice this there is No fix! WHat i tired will Only delay the crash for few hours, but can promise the Complete Stability for 20+hrs.

Same issue here. Whether gaming or just on surfing the web I get a black screen "no signal" audio continues to work. This can happen 5 min after boot or and hour. Hoping for something before I go and start buying parts for a new build. Trying CSM disable now and turning off afterburner. Will report back in a few days or less if it doesn't work and keeps crashing.

Other things I have tried;
Tured off corsair utility engine
Turned off virtualization
Turned off fast boot
Turned off OCs
Used DDU and clean installed (more times than I can count)
Changed 6+1 power cables
Used different PCI slot

I have also check hardware for stability as you did.

Same rig worked fine with the following GPUs with no issues 290x, 1x and 2x 295x2s, Fury (unlocked to x), and 2x 290s. Which brings me to believe this is an Nvidia issue.

Hello,

I've tried the TDR Manipulator on my laptop with the settings from this thread. I have a Asus GL522VX and the second card is Nvidia Geforce GTX950M. It is my third day without any problems. So far so good. I'll let you know if I ran into issues.

Glad it worked out for you, The issue is most definitely the Faulty Drivers. I am so annoyed i literally have ordered a rx460 form amd for now to just work for the time being, Unless nvidia notice this problem we have to hang with the problem for many months. I assume this will take till 2018 to fix :eek:

im currently using WIndows 10 Update 1709 that released yesterday 17th October 2017. with Nvidia Driver 387.98 also released on 17th October 2017.

Well Results are little different , I am crashing at times but performance has increased after the update. If u crash i'd say just buy a cheap AMD gpu for now till they fix this stupid thing, I emailed and Contacted NVIDIA so many times they barely give any proper solution.

If this issue is not fixed i would just rma the Card then take the new one sell it and get a quadro.......i literally hate nvidia Gforce stuff now.

I was having similar issues after the fall update. Trick for me was to disable all c-states if I want to run offset mode, or go to fixed voltage. Did not try disabling CSM first.

This Problem aint cured at all, This is fustrating and god knows what bad code does this, well all i can do is buy a new PC later.

Hello. Faced a similar problem. In general, after a long study of the question, everything was reduced to disabling the Corsair link. System: Asus Rampage IV Extreme 4930k - 4500 Mhz, Corsair 2133 - 16 Gb, SSD - Vertex 4, MSI Armor 1080 Ti, and Corsair AX1200i. Problems started after replacing GTX 690 on GTX1080 and reinstalling with Windows 7 on Windows 10.

Just want to chime in and bump this thread as it is definitely still an issue and it just started happening to my newly built computer as of a couple days ago, sometimes when gaming and sometimes even when I'm just browsing the internet using Chrome.

I have a GTX 1080 TI with an ASUS ROG Hero X motherboard running the latest 397.31 Nvidia drivers, and out of the blue now occasionally both monitors get a "No Signal" error, one of them HDMI and one of them through the GSync capable DisplayPort cable. The only thing possible at this point is a hard-reset as others on this thread have pointed out. The occurred completely randomly about 9 months after I built my PC, with no software or hardware changes to precipitate the change besides regular Nvidia driver updates.

I really hope Nvidia, Microsoft, and/or motherboard manufacturers can get together and figure this issue out, as replacing my brand new, fairly expensive motherboard seems like an insane solution given how much this brand new rig cost me.

this solved my issue as well!

Issue "solved"/workaround / NO crash since over 1 week!

Turn of "Turbo Mode" in Bios in "2" Bios Options:
- Option (1) "Extreme Tweaker / CPU Performance Settings"
- Option (2) "Advanced / CPU Configuration / CPU Power Management Configuration"
and set the multiplicator from the CPU to standard = for example 100x36 for 4960X = 3600 MHZ.

To do:
1. set "AI Overlock Tuner" to "Manual"
2. turn of "Turbo Mode" in "2" Bios Options
3. set multiplicator to standard (standard from CPU without TURBO!)
example: i7-4960X runs standard with x36. (with Turbo it runs with x40)

!!!If you set the multiplicator over x36, for example x37, the turbo mode will be automatically enabled in "2" Bios options!!!

If you want, you can overclock with "FSB" = still NO crash

Currently i am running with 125Mhz x 36 BCLK/FSB @4500 and 1,250 Volt.
Tested with Prime95,
CPU Power usage 100% with 135Watt@70C° with corsair H115i Pro.

I prefer overclocking with standard “Turbo Mode” or with multiplicator, but currently there is no way to run system stable with it (Turbo Mode). 😞
