post #6181 of 7108
I am having some trouble which has been annoying me for a while. Every so often when i turn my computer on everything powers up but the screen remains blank and then everything powers down a second or so later before turning on again with the screen. This in itsself wouldn't annoy me too much but whenever it does this the computer then fails at booting into windows and I just end up stuck on a black screen so I have to hard reset the computer and turn it on again.

any ideas?

Man this can be a few things, but just off the top of my head Im thinking a psu issue or unstable cpu overclock. I had a shorted psu wire to motherboard once cause something like this too.

Edit: In case I wasnt specific enough (sorry in a rush), check your wires inside the case and make sure none seem like they rubbed through the insulation or are pinched causing a short. If it still happens make sure the cpu is at stock settings and see if it stops doing this.

Good luck and please update

There were cases at the beginning of this topic, where HDMI connection over the integrated graphics was causing a delayed picture on the monitor at startup. So you didnt see anything until windows asked for the password.
Maybe your case is related to this, since you use them. Maybe the first reboot is a power or overclock fail (with normal reaction of resetting bios), and at the second reboot just gives you a message what failed, but you cant go on, because you dont see it...

Was looking to buy this motherboard. Is there any issues with using ivy bridge procs on it? Is ram limited to 2200 speeds?

Hey guys I have a quick question that I couldn't really find searching around.. I have the original Gene-Z and I'm running an IB BIOS, but I'd like to flash backwards to an older BIOS. Is this possible or am I stuck at the IB bios? Previous version have provided more stable clocks.

EDIT: what's everyone's preferred overclocking BIOS?

I need to upgrade my RAM to 32GB so question for those of you using 32GB....what memory exactly are you using? I've been checking on Newegg and am leaning on either 4 x 8GB G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 1866 or some Mushkin Mushkin Enhanced Redline 1866, but still want to know what runs well in this motherboard. Thanks!
