Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 60

post #591 of 810
What brand of ram are you running in your system Neil? I did have some corsair xms3 ddr1600, and even though it was not testing bed in memtest it was definitely what was causing the errors. I rma'd it and if the second set does it too I will sell it on ebay.

There is certainly something up with the batch and looking at the gigabyte forums it isn't just related to the UD3P. Seems like a Gigabyte issue in general

Do a search for COLD BOOT or BOOT LOOP on the gigabyte forums, shocking redface.gif

I've linked to this thread over at Gigabyte's forums. I'm sick of this issue on a premium board, with little to no assistance from support on even acknowledging the issue.

Hold the power button down for 5 seconds. Should power off then. There is a setting in the power options for how the power button works.

My friend just got a custom built PC with 2600K + Gigabyte GA-Z68ZP-D3 motherboard. I noticed a weird boot problem with his PC and was wondering if this is the same issue everyone else is experiencing.

Basically his PC is double posting and it happens randomly.

The computer boots up and shows the full logo screen. Upon pressing DEL to enter the BIOS menu, the PC restarts and I need to press DEL again to enter the BIOS menu.

Another instance would be starting the PC up from a cold boot and letting it load windows. After the animated Windows logo screen, the PC restarts. After the computer finishes POST, the Windows menu pops up asking me if I would like to start Windows normally or do a system repair.

The computer is running at optimized default settings with the latest FB bios.

I was very happy to find this thread with all the info! It helped me alot!

I get random bootloops, cold bootloops and freezes (no BSOD) as soon i start tweaking qpi, vcore, vdram.

Linx and Prime stable overclock but booting is terrible! Contacted Gigabyte about it and ended up with this answer:

We are sorry that there's no such issue in new version of Z68 MB (B3 version) .At this moment we would suggest you keep in default setting with F5 BIOS , you may try to download BIOS at
http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3852#


Since the system has been overclocked, stability is not concerned to be our problem.
overclocking success depend on many factors such as CPU. Memory, power supply and many more…….Please kindly understand we don’t guarantee system stability under overclocking.

Regards,
GIGABYTE

It's true OC depends on many factors but it would be nice to see them confirm the coldboot problems...
