Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 67

post #661 of 811
I cured my cold boot issues biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif, it was down to the PLL overvoltage setting, with it ENABLED or even on AUTO it wont be long till I cold booted!, Disabled it and haven't had a cold boot in 5days. Gigabyte needs to look into this, it should NOT be cold booting if the PLL overvoltage is set to enabled frown.gif

This is my final setting smile.gif

As I said

INTERNAL CPU PLL OVERVOLT - ENABLED = COLD BOOT
INTERNAL CPU PLL OVERVOLT - DISABLED = NO COLD BOOT

did you resolve the freezing you were getting with the setting changed, though? I'd rather deal with a cold boot loop than freezing while I am working on documents.

I never had freezing, only cold boots which has so far been cured!

Sorry, not freezing, but this issue:

One thing i've noticed since disabling pll overvoltage which SEEMS to have cured the cold boot issue is my system is distinctly laggy when using firefox - internet browsing. It seems to lag when a website is loading frown.gif

Did you manage to solve that problem?

It was an issue state side due to the LEVEL3 line, I thought it was my isp but after doing a number of tracerts they mentioned as such.

Just happened at the same time lol
