Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 17

Just wondering if this issue only affects a few bad apples or is consistent across the board.
I got this boot loop issue with my Z68X-UD4, its a great mobo and clocks well but I would go for Asus just to avoid this endless problem

No it does not require any change in bios for the boot loop the happen, that's why this problem is quite annoying.

Its a bios issue, so RMA it wouldn't help. So far the boot loop I got is pretty random. Everytime I have to unplug the 24pin on my mobo to stop the boot loop.

Just a light update: I did shut down the system for about 18 hours (the longest to date for this mobo) and it started up without issue. Can we get more Z68XP people in here or am I the only one with this mobo?

As far as I know, this mobo is working flawlessly.

It has now been eight days since I reflashed back to F6 and not a single boot loop since.

That sounds like the worst idea ever. Why not just shut off the PSU?

I have tried 3 different bios' on my board. Original bios had the issue. Loaded an F6 from the USA server. Problem went away. Tried a newer one from the USA server (also F6) problem returned. Re loaded the second version & it's working again.

It is the worst idea, but unfortunately this is the only way that works for me.
Shut off/unplug the PSU won't help. Pretty sad eh
post #170 of 811
Have you tried unplugging the PSU and just holding down the power button for a few seconds? It probably just needs to discharge completely.
