MSI P67A-GD65 infinite boot/loop problem :(!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
installed everything into my case and go to boot into the UEFI and nothing !

i press the power switch, everything starts fine and the fans spin up and the LED's on the board are fine, waits 5 secs then it shuts itself off and tries the exact same process again. it keeps doing this until i cut the power !
i've checked the 24pin etc, KB & mouse r fine, 2 different sets off RAM in every slot, cleared CMOS (i think).

seems like a very common problem with this board after a bit of googling !!

also tried

tried the OC genie button on and off.
been sitting in the box unused for about 1.5 months. doubt that means anything tho.

This problem is usually caused by RAM issues, bent pins on CPU, or just a completely dead board (or corrupt BIOS). If the CPU and RAM are confirmed working, then a RMA is in order.

RAM is defo working, and I used 2 different sets. Il confirm it still works tomorrow smile.gif.
CPU, i cant guarantee is working, and i have no way of testing it frown.gif!
Mobo, same as CPU frown.gif.

I'm pointing the finger at the motherboard tho as this seems a common problem frown.gif!

Is there any way I can distinguish between the problem being the cpu or motherboard?

Thanks for helping smile.gif

The chances of a brand new CPU being DOA is less than 0.5%.

The chances of a new motherboard being dead is more like 2%.
VERY unlikely to be the CPU.

If no crushed pins, then just RMA the board.

It's not just msi's board that does this. This bug affects all the other p67 boards I've seen and it seems a component replacement is the only solution.
