Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 30

post #291 of 810
it could be a bunch of things, but you have never been able to see the POST screen then somthing is dead, its nt just s boot loop, that is the board checking itself over and over.

Either your RAM is gone, your CPU is gone, your VGA, is gone, your PSU is gone, or the board is gone.

Something is really malfunctioning/dead, I wouldn't worry about bootloop with your setup, as something is really broken.

Do you have a TPM module? or a POSt card? It could tell you what is wrong.

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.
1) need a GPU
2) IIRC doesnt boot unless sticks are in white slots (at least on my board)

This. In the Gigabyte manual it always goes in the white slot or the slots furthest away from the CPU first.

Yeah, I don't see your screen even posting. You might want to troubleshoot your other hardware.
Shhhhh!

I was going to say... That's not a boot loop. Maybe AzO should edit the first post and write a little more about what actually constitutes a boot loop.

I also have this problem with my Z68X-UD4-B3. I have found that lowering the vCore seems to decrease the chances of the mobo entering boot loop. The board seems (to me) to be unaffected by the CPU's frequency -- at 4.1GHz @ 1.27 vCore, it runs smooth with no looping, but at 4.1GHz @ 1.35 vCore it runs into an endless loop, eventually forcing me to shut down the PSU.

Does anybody know where to find (if they exist) GA's BIOS patch notes? The latest beta BIOS does not solve this problem for me, but I would be interested in reading what they actually do, or attempt to do, with the F8 update.


New to these forums, but I have been following this discussion for quite a while since I am experiencing the same problem : )
