post #71 of 810
Does this problem apply to everyone or just a select few unlucky people?

I've had Gigabyte boards for as long as I can remember and never had any issues whatsoever so it's a shame it has to come to this but oh well. Hope Gigabyte gets it fixed eventually!

I'm going to call Newegg Monday and see if they can ship me out a ASUS P8Z68-V first so I don't have to go without my PC. Worst case, I'll buy it outright and return the board afterwards but I doubt I'll have to do that; Newegg always treats me well. smile.gif

Yes, this tends to happen after completely shutting down the machine, doesn't require a whole night but maybe 3mins after shutdown and start up the boot cycle will return.

Tried your suggestion when you first posted on this thread, didn't work.

It dawned on me a possible fix might be to completely disconnect the reset switch header cable. The switch definitely instigates it so it's possible there's some type of short going on there. In fact, the boot loop even resembles someone constantly hitting the reset switch while the board is attempting to post. The only problem with this fix is I'd have no way of replicating the boot loop then and as a result I'd just have to wait and see if it ever happens again.

I'm going to try not plugging the reset switch, it's not like anyone ever uses it anymore.
Shhhhh!

It didn't work for me. frown.gif

I've tried everything I can think of now and still no luck. Everything I've done:
  • Every single setting in the BIOS has been checked to see if it causes it. This includes disabling what I consider to be essentials such as the LAN chip.
  • I've ran CPU at stock, I've downclocked RAM, and tried just about anything I can think of as far of voltages, clocks, and settings go.
  • I've disconnected the reset switch, HDD led, power led, etc
  • I disconnected my drives. In fact, it happens with no drives connected at all.
  • I've tested using only one monitor
  • Tested it with single RAM sticks

Nothing works and the boot loop persists. It is also getting more and more common. It actually happens the vast majority of the time I turn my system on now. I'm now convinced that if it's a BIOS issue, Gigabyte needs to address it themselves and there's nothing the end-user can do about it. (I seriously tried every setting in the BIOS) If it's a hardware issue or a design flaw, it sucks to be anyone who can't return this board and hopefully it's not a widespread issue because you'll just end up getting a board with the same issue back from RMA.

Time to call Newegg on Monday.

Same thing happened to my P35-DS3L last year. I ended up having to RMA it. I would try it with a single stick of ram in the slot closest to the cpu. If that doesn't work try with only the cpu, a single stick of ram, and vid card. If you have any try a different stick of ram, preferably one that is speced at 1.8vdimm and 5-5-5-18 timings. I'm not fond of Crucial Ballistix ram and run across lots of stories of problems with them, especially the 4-4-4-12 variety. If you are using a USB keyboard or mouse try with PS2 versions instead.

If none of those fix it, try the infamous DFI Long Bios Clear.
  • Remove power from the rig by disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet.
  • Make sure the PC Speaker is plugged in.
  • Remove the Battery.
  • Move the CMOS jumper to CLEAR.
  • Press the Start Button on the case or motherboard to drain the capacitors.
  • You may leave the board in this condition for as long as it takes to clear the CMOS. If a short 30 second clear or a 15 minute clear doesn't work, try an 8 hour clear then a 24 hour clear.
  • Plug in a PS2 Keyboard.
  • Put one stick of RAM in the slot closest to the cpu.
  • Replace the Battery.
  • Move the CMOS jumper to Normal.
  • Press and hold the Insert Key on the Keyboard.
  • Apply power to the rig by plugging the power cord into the wall outlet.
  • Press the Start Button to power the rig up while holding down the insert key.
  • When you hear the BEEP, release the Insert Key and press the Delete Key on the Keyboard.
  • Once you enter the BIOS set the DATE and TIME then Load Optimized Defaults.
  • Save and Exit.
  • Enter the BIOS again and set it up the way you want for your particular rig.


If that doesn't take care of it, you'll probably need to RMA it.

I'm going to try ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, going to RMA the Z68X-UD4. Enough is enough, this is complete and utter BS from Gigabyte's part.

Got this cycling problem due to an unstable overclock but was able to boot into BIOS after powering it down and holding the power button for 30 sec. I was greeted with an unstable OC message but all my BIOS settings were intact. So far no problems after a complete shut down.

EDIT: Had to shut the PC down for a bit to install shrouds on my Venomous X. Powered back on without problems.

Try this:


I'm a bit lazy right now but I'll give all of it a try in a few.

One thing I'm noticing is beta BIOS F7a is more prone to boot loop than F6. With F7a I pretty much always go into a boot loop when powering up my system after it's been off for awhile. Meanwhile, I've yet to have the boot loop occur with BIOS F6 with the exception of using the reset switch. Another thing I've noticed is BIOS F6 doesn't break my time when it goes into a boot loop.

This sure looks like a BIOS issue to me. Anyone have BIOS build F5 by chance? It's not on Gigabyte's site but I know it exists because that's what my board originally shipped with.
