Although this may be what your talking about but this is something I've noticed on my rig.

-Turn PC off.
-Poke front button to turn on.
-3-4 Seconds later, LEDs turn on, fans start spinning.
-6-7 Seconds screen turns on for BIOs menu.
All of that sounds like your just turning on your PC normally. The reason the screen turns 6-7 seconds later is because you own a LCD which needs to warm up before the screen is displayed. This is normal.

Which Z68XP motherboard do you have?

From this other thread here:
http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.p...e;topic=5428.0

yayo has posted up the initial release BIOS of F5. I have just downloaded and flashed my BIOS from F7 back to F5 and the PC now seems to be booting up normally. Switched it off for 1, 5 and 10mins and every time it has loaded no problems. Changed the RAM to XMP with settings to auto which the BIOS has already put in the default values for the Ripjaws.

Will continue testing but it looks like Gigabyte may have released the F7 update too quickly as from what I can tell the F7 (which is the only BIOS on the Gigabyte website (*** is with that???)) supports the Touch BIOS and the Z68 SSD Cache feature. I think GB may have rushed though the BIOS update without properly testing everything.

I will keep you all updated, doing some stress testing before I start powering off again for a longer period.
Disregard that, issue was still occouring. Got an exchange on the board for the Asus P8Z68 V Pro, put it in and works right away, after numerous powerdowns after installing Windows, drivers and applications works perfectly. Very disapointed I was an avid fan on the GB boards.

I have sat here for more than an hour going through all of the posts in this thread, couple that with my brand new build having this same issue, I am about to take a high powered firearm to the thing and send it to its next life......

I just purchased a GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 board, i5-2500k, and GSKILL Ripjaws RAM to replace my old system that bit the dust. My first board from newegg let me get so far as to install the OS, then I decided to update the BIOS to F6, and from that point on all it would ever do is power on, power off, power on, power off...... no amount of pulling the plug, resetting the CMOS, changing hardware around, etc would bring it back to life. RMA'd the thing, and now have my second board.

New board worked for a almost a full day!! Then this morning I was playing around with building a hackintosh, so went into the BIOS to make one change, HPET over to 64bit, and since then I am back in the power on, power off issue.....

Going through this thread, i could not really determine what people are doing to get their systems back to life. Are you all really getting so lucky that all you have to do is pull the plug for a few seconds, then at least you get a POST and BIOS screen? I dont get that at all......

As an FYI, the 2nd board was updated successfully to F6 and ran just fine. Never did any OC changes to the BIOS at all..... PLEASE HELP before I do something I may regret....

Frankly, many people here assumed they had the boot loop problem and assumed they fixed it when there isn't a fix. You can ignore what some members say about Gigabyte's past reputation of the boot loop problem, because it was not a boot loop problem to begin with.

Gigabyte's boot loop problem is unique to P67/Z68 boards and at the moment there is no fix in sight. If you can wait, and who knows how long, for Gigabyte to release a working non-BETA BIOS that fixes the issue or you can switch to another motherboard brand, that's what I did.
Shhhhh!

Well, i would think about waiting if I could boot at all! At this point though, do I have any other choice besides RMA??? Even if they fix the bios, how would I even load it??

actually there are fixes for the P67 board, as you see people are complaining here with Z68 boards.

AZO i think the mistake you made was thinking that a newer board would solve the issues, but what you are forgetting is that its a BIOS issue, and the fact is that early P67 boards for the most part don't have this issue anymore and now its kind of a Z68 ordeal, new boards = equally new BIOS.
