[Official] Gigabyte GA-990XA/970A-Series Owners' Club & Help Thread - FX-8350 support added - Page 224

post #2231 of 3225
Just bought a GA 970A UD3 today with FX6300 + 4 GB RAM.
I assemblyd the parts, powered up the PC but it could not boot up normally.
I can see the Gigabyte logo for 2 sec on the screen, then PC stuck at blank screen.
Same result if press DEL or F12 button. I cant even enter the (UEFI) bios.

The mobo is rev 3.
I have a ps2 keyboard, 17" CRT Monitor which is connected to a Radeon HD6670 via DVI -> D-SUB adapter.
Maybe bios is not supporting my monitor, dvi->dsub adapter, ps2 keyboard?
Or i bought a totally crap mobo?

Before I cleared the CMOS the PC started to boot the Win7 installer from the connected USB stick if I didn't hit anything on the keyboard.
Hmm maybe this means the mobo could manage the ps2 keyboard...

I am confused and upset.... i have never had this much problem with a PC before...

I mean this one is better and cheaper than mugen 4 smile.gif

What cooler are you using, and are you being throttled?

Make sure to run some benchmarks. I found if I go over my current oc, i get throttled and lose 20 points on heaven.

I know I couldn't enter bios when I had a usb game controller hooked up to my system. It did however, boot to windows.

You might want to try with different mouse/keyboards.

Did you remember to hook up your CPU fan? Did you correctly apply thermal paste?

Do you have other ram to try.

Try resetting the bios through the jumper.

I am using
http://www.thermalright.com/html/products/cpu_cooler/true_spirit_140.html?panel=1

With good thermalpaste this cooler is able to keep my CPu under 62C at 1.525V

i bought it only beacuse it was cheap 33€ - compared to noctua NH-D14 70€ so it cost 37€ less --- 50$
I had 4,8Ghz stable i did cinebench R15 and i get near i7 3770k (stock) about 630-640 ... i dont remember cause i didnt save itd.
But i will do benchmark with 5,0Ghz - but i need to get it stable

anythink else?

Cpu fan attached and spinning.
I am using original amd cpu cooler at the moment where the thermal paste is pre-applyed.
I had reset the bios already, but not solved the issue.

Have you looked on the mobo website to see if the cpu is supported with the current bios version?
Maybe you need to update the bios, had that before myself.

Hah, I have news.
If I remove the CRT monitor cable from the VGA, hitting DEL for 15seconds and then attaching the DSUB cable to the monitor iam in the bios and everything working fine.
***??
Mobo can not support a CRT monitor via DSUB or the mobo is defective?
post #2240 of 3225
It's crazy how picky these dang things can be.

You might want to send a email to the mobo manufacture, and tell them about your problem. See if they have any solutions which don't involve cable pulling.

I had contacted Gigabyte once, and they got back to me with in 24 hours.
