Gigabyte P67/Z68 boot cycling problem - Page 69

post #681 of 810
Lsd Thanks for the response. I have tested everything returned the board got another one bought memory they said would work on the board so two different brands of ram one not on the list one on the list still samething it has done since I put it together the first time. I have tried different PSU, CPU, Video, Memory, CDROM and hard drive all with the same results in many different configurations. It runs fine but if you shut it down you have to jump Cmos and go through bios and reboot and its all good till you have to shut it down again. I have been building and repairing computers as a business for 16 years and I have never seen a problem like this. It is my luck though I build me a new machine and this is what I get. =/

When you flashed, did you disable keep DMI data? If not, please reflash and disable that in Qflash.

And making your BIOSes match usually helps as well, here's how to do that

Newer BIOSes are out again now all around (P67/Z68), so be sure to go grab the latest again in case there was an issue with the last round (Seems to me like the re-updated again fairly fast this time around)

GA-Z68XP-UD3P - F7f

What was wrong with F7e?, unless F7f is official... I'm staying at F7e as it works biggrin.gif

You can always stay on the BIOS you like, or go back to it if you want to test new BIOSes and find you don't like them, it's always up to you biggrin.gif

All beta BIOS are official, unless you see someone modified them with updated ROM's or something like that. Then those would be a user modified official beta, or final, but we try to make sure to note when BIOSes like that are posted.

If you mean official Final BIOS then almost all beta's are not in that category, rarely will you see a beta posted on the motherboard download pages. (And if so, that would be the same as what Stasio posts, official beta BIOS direct from GBT Taiwan)

Hi everyone. I recently put my computer together last night and was running into what I think is the same issue. My computer turns on, has no video, shuts off after 15 seconds and turns itself on again. This cycle continues indefinitely.


I have a GB Z68XP-UD4 motherboard
i7-2600k
Zalman CNPS 10X extreme cooler
8GB mushkin enhanced 1600 at 1.5v
Corsair TX750 psu

I don't know where I went wrong in my build as this is my first attempt at building a computer but I spent 2 hours last night thinking the cpu and the heatsink were seated correctly and constantly reapplying the paste and heatsink to the cpu. (it was a little difficult with the Zalman and I still don't think I got it right)

I am not sure if it is the PSU either. I didn't know the light I was using had magnets in it so when I set the light down in my case, it stuck to the psu but I pulled it off. Would magnets completely kill a power supply?

I don't know if my RAM is bad either.

I did try the stock cooler that came with the cpu and was able to get into bios but in the bios it said my cpu was at 87* C. Is this normal? Even so, the computer would still reboot. I since have the Zalman back on.

Keep in mind that I have no tried to change any settings in bios, I can't even get that far. If someone could help that would be awesome. This is my first build and it's eating me alive not knowing what I can do.



edit: Another thing to note that of the 4 phase LED's, the first 2 are green, 3rd is yellow, and 4th is red. What does this mean? And does this motherboard have a speaker because I can't hear any beeps.

Phase LED's: biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifsmile.gifmad.gif

lol with the phase LEDs.

Pull out the PSU power connectors, then pull out the battery on the board. THen find the ClearCMOS jumper (its 2 pins) right above the front panel connectors, you can look in te manual if you can't find it.

Short those pins for a few minutes, and then let the board site for another 5.

Then put the battery back in.

BTW what video output are you using? Do you have a dedicated GPU by any chance? Do you have another computer as well? Once you get into the BIOS I would lash to the latest BIOS immediately.

Hey - so I finally got my wc loop set up and before adding any liquid to it - I just wanted to turn on my computer for a couple seconds to make sure it booted up. I've had this thing sitting around for months because I haven't had the time to put into it. I should also note I've sent this board to RMA for this problem before. I should also mention that it is caught in a power cycle. It turns on for a couple seconds and then powers off repeatedly. Am I missing something? Possibly the cpu being seated incorrectly? It worked just fine a couple weeks ago and I haven't removed the cpu at all.


Edit: Think I found my problem - it will work with 1 stick of ram but after I add the 2nd it will get caught in the loop. This never happened before : /

What should I do?

Forgot to mention that my board is the z68x-ud5-b3

Thanks for the reply.

I finally had enough and took it to a computer shop. They called me and said that there were bent pins on the motherboard and it was causing the boot loop. Also said the board is not RMA-able so I am in market for new one I guess.

Do you recommend I get same board?
post #690 of 810
Um are you sure they aren't trying to rip you off? Ben pins don't cause boot loops man, the really don't. but bent pins can cause the system just not to work, and unless you bent them, as in they came like that then GB should cover it. So what does your computer shop want to do? Are they going to make you buy a new board? You can actually, if you bent the pins, pay to have a new socket placed on the board. or like many others attempt to fix it yourself, take a lead pencil, take out the lead, and then slide it over the pin and bend it back. The pins don't really bend and break, they just have to fall into place correctly again.

out of curiosity, what computer shop did you take it too?

You live in fairfax, you can PM me if you want.
