Computer reboots when i start it - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Do you have a Sandybridge system?

there is your answer. Happens alot on them... sometimes a bios update fixes it. Others it just works itself out. (believe it or not)

1.Nop it shuts down himself.
2.1204.
3.nop
1) Get the latest BIOS version and update. You can use AI suite to do this, it's very easy.
2) Overclock using your BIOS, not the software that came with the board. Plenty of guides on how to do this, even good Youtube videos. This is one guide: http://techreport.com/forums/viewtop...&hilit=Turbo+V

Side note: When you want to turn off your pc, select "Hibernate" from the start menu. Not "Shut Down" or "Sleep"
"Shut Down" is not recommended and SOME Asus P67 boards have problems with the "Sleep" mode.

Open command prompt and type this powercfg -h on

That should enable Hibernate. Just note that it will utilize some extra space on your ssd.

Edit: If it doesn't appear still, another way to do is assigning "Hibernate" to the power button. So when you press the power button on your pc it will put the pc in to Hibernate.

To do this go to Control Panel > Power options > Change what the power button does.

Shutting down your computer is not recommended? I've NEVER heard that before.

Yea, my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P does that, spins up, shuts off, spins up again with a BIOS OC. Didn't know ASUS boards did that as well.

Manually download your BIOS file and use AI suite to flash.
Here'es the link: http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...treme&p=1&s=39
Just select your operating system and then click on the BIOS tab, the latest version is 1303.
Then in AI suite, click "update BIOS from file" and just select the BIOS you just downloaded.

Don't use "level up" or what ever it is, manually overclock. Overclocking on sandy bridge is a relatively easy process and like I said there are plenty of guides on the net.

I had the same problem when i first booted my computer however on the second boot it wouldnt work.. The solution was for me to reseat the ram, one of the sticks wasnt completely in, try with only one stick or try switching and reseating them!

This may not be the answer however it could very well be your solution because it worked for me
