It goes w/out saying no one had boot loop problems before it starts happening.

The GA-Z68XP-UD3 i dealt with had scheduled re-boots every night & lasted almost 3 months. It then very suddenly developed a permanent, ultimately fatal problem.

I've got a GA-P67A-UD4-B3 (rev. 1.1) and didn't have any problems for months.

A few weeks ago I decided to add a Wireless PCI card to replace my USB stick and that's when the problems started..

First time booting the system with the newly installed PCI card and it just wouldn't boot. Tried the usual to get it running again (run with minimal hardware, bios upgrades) but no luck. Almost given up on it when the next morning I wanted to give it another try and to my surprise after letting it cycle for ages (must've been atleast 30 cycles) it actually booted!!

So I wondered if I would shut down the PC it would boot again without any problems, which it did. Then, when I got back home from work, to my surprise, it wouldn't boot again. Again let it cycle for half an hour and finally I managed to get into windows. When it does finally boot everything works like normal, I am able to stress test the PC / play demanding games which I found odd.

Then after a few weeks I got fed up with it and decided to send it for RMA. Stupid as I was I transported the MB home in my car to get my CPU Protector plate so I could ship it. When I got home the pins were already bent. Because I was honest to the store that I broke the pins myself the store actually still sent it for RMA (they refused at first telling me I broke it myself, they were surprised I was honest about it lol). Gigabyte actually fixed the pins (Credits to GB RMA, you are the best!). Yet my cold booting issue was still there when I tried booting it the first time.

Now since I have a watercooling setup and it takes me forever to get this thing assembled again I am not to keen on taking it apart again and shipping it for RMA once again in the hope to get it repaired. I reinstalled my PC last night and this morning it only looped twice before it booted (which is a lot better). So I wonder what it's going to do when I get back home in about an hour.

One thing that I found odd when the boot cycling is happening though is that the Phase Leds (next to ram) are flashing a bit when it is having trouble booting. Does anyone notice similar behaviour? I've never noticed this behaviour before so I found it odd when diagnosing what was wrong.

Well, I am probably going to buy a cheap GPU and a new PSU soon to see if that cures my problems, but my hopes are pretty low... I really still think behaviour could only happen with a bad MB, else I would also have problems when I've finally booted, which I dont.

I had these issues on my sig rig. It has been a while since it happened, but it sounds exactly like what I experience. I think some of it has to do with overclocking. Makes overclocking a pain, to have it reboot and wipe it out.

Interesting. I had bought a Z68MA-D2H-B3 with a 2500K, and I had to swap the Mobo 3 times. On the 3rd time it finally worked. But the first 2 times exhibited these problems I believe. It spins fan for and then shuts it off, it wouldn't POST.

I recently began getting the boot-loop issue. I'm using a GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 / rev. 1.0 / Bios 11i
I read somewhere (maybe here) that the Intel graphics drivers could be the issue.
Well I wiped my whole machine, removed and left out of the mobo the CMOS battery and unplugged the PSU overnight. Reinstalled Win7, DID NOT install any Intel graphic drivers, (I'm using GTX580 anyways)
So far, 3 days, not one boot-loop. I have restarted 35-50 times so far and every time it has booted right up. One issue I had was shutting down completely overnight and having it loop the next day when I started my PC. Not happening anymore.
Not sure if this is "the fix", but so far so good.
Maybe this will help ya'll. Best of luck!

Hello guys! Been a lurker for years and I apologize for being a noob.biggrin.gif

I'm 83 days into my build and i think I have the boot-loop symptom I have been reading about? A least I think I do?

What do you guys think? Only way to turn the pc off is hold down the power button for a while or the switch on the back of the PSU.


I'll provide quick video I took.


Thank you for you help in advanced! Great community here!

Is it looping on and off during a cold boot? If it is then it's boot looping, if possible try to update the BIOs.

Thanks xP_0nex, I fixed it, at least for now.

I cleared the CMOS this morning, restarted it went into a couple boot cycles and is working fine now??

In the mean time I was on newegg last night and ordered a ASrock extreme3 gen3. Should I run the MB I have and return my impulse buy or will this be an on going problem?

Thank you for the reply!

To answer your question yes, it was looping on and off during a cold boot.

I absolutely agree and will always agree with this statement thumbsupsmiley.png I will never undestand why people would update the bios if their mobo had never shown problems in the first place headscratch.gif
