Here's how to get your machine to boot again.

You don't need to do all that fancy pulling the 24 mobo pin or removing the battery.

Flip the switch on your PSU if you have one, wait for the mobo to power down THEN pull the plug.

You do need to reset the CMOS manually, just get any metal flat tip and touch the 2 pins or if you have a hold PATA drive around you can remove the jumper on that and use it to reset the CMOS, just remember to remove the jumper afterwards.

Wait approx. 30 seconds, re-plug the power, turn on your PSU (if it has a switch) and your machine should boot normally. If it doesn't repeat the steps outline until it does.

For me it worked every time but on occasions I had to unplug the power and reset the CMOS more than once to get it to boot.

Once you get it to boot DO NOT TURN OFF your computer. Leave it on! If you want to save energy or if have people hounding you to turn if off, just put it to SLEEP! Turning your computer off will result in it looping again.

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.

From a business standpoint, if switching board makers solves the problem I could careless what the problem is. Pondering all day on what the problem is won't pay my bills.
Shhhhh!

What I did with my boot loop machine to get it back up was while it was doing the boot loop disconnect the power plug.

So when it was booting up you see the bios check screen and then it goes blank, before it gets a chance to load back up again (to do the boot loop) disconnect the power. Leave the powerpoint disconnected for about 20 seconds, then reconnect the powerplug then turn on. It should boot up as normal.

Tried all of the above, even after I had done all of the "fancy" stuff of pulling the 24-pin, battery, and let it sit like that overnight. Same story in the morning.... power comes on for 2 seconds, then turns off... never any video to speak of, no nothing.... This seemed to be the same issue I had with the first board... tried all of the same tactics on that one as well, just would never POST or show anything. Could I really be that unlucky to have had 2 bad boards? Do you guys really put up with "Just dont turn off your PC" as an answer to this problem????

I made 3 videos of my board boot cycling. It has NEVER posted for me. Arrived on Friday 15th July 2011, tested it over the weekend and it has never once booted for me.

First video is only 45 seconds so take a look and this will hopefully let you know of the exact issue that this thread pertains too.
45 SECONDS

I will RMA the motherboard, and possibly ask if I can exchange it for a different brand entirely. Probably an ASUS but need to find a good Z68 Motherboard in the £100-£130 price category.

^^ take a multimeter if you have one, and check the initial voltage going to the cpu upon startup

Resetting the cmos always worked for me when i had this problem with the older bioses. :thinking:The cmos battery could also be a problem.

Unfortunately I do not have a multimeter frown.gif

The best I have managed is to turn it on and have it running for about 8 seconds before it cuts out and starts to BOOT CYCLE. This was after taking out the CMOS Battery for about 20 minutes and then holding down the power button without the PSU plugged in for 30 Seconds. Then putting the CMOS Battery back in, and then reconnecting the PSU and turning it on. I have done that several times and in even more extreme measures but 8 seconds is the maximum I have had it last for.

Still never seen the BIOS screen yet. I will RMA the Motherboard.

Reckon I should get an ASUS instead?

sure... the only boards i've ever owned were either by gigabyte or asus. Although with 1155 boards, all brands iirc have had their share of boot loop issues. It's not just confined to gigabyte boards

gl though, hopefully you get one that works fine

Asus is a good choice, it has always been Gigabyte and Asus for me. I switched out all the problem boards with Asus P8Z68-V PRO or Asus P8Z68 Deluxe. Nice UEFI GUI and best of all no more boot loop!

i think you have a dead CPu if it has never booted for you.
You actually do not have teh bootloop, as if you did it would have booted at one point or another after you cleared CMOS. Maybe whoever sold it to you sold you a bootloop RMA board lol.
FYI this is what happens if you have a dead CPU.

If it is the CPU that is dead why does the time it is on for change then?

It can turn on and stay on for 8 seconds before restarting itself then looping in 3 second cycles, and sometimes randomly go higher. Surely if it was a dead CPU then it would just consistently go on and off at the exact same time? or am I totally wrong with this thinking.
