Gigabyte motherboard will not post

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I finished putting together my computer this evening but it will not post. I have a Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 motherboard with an i5 2500K processor. I have checked it over multiple times to make sure everything is plugged in correctly and as far as I know it is (this is the first time I've built my own computer).

Originally, I forgot to use the motherboard standoffs and tried booting the computer. When I turned it on, the blue power LED would flash then the computer would be unresponsive.

After putting the standoffs in place, I booted the computer and the blue power LED and the phase LEDs on the motherboard flashed then the computer became unresponsive.

I tired resetting the CMOS during both trials but the same thing occurred.

Any help would be awesome.

Hmmm, not sure if resetting the cmos is necessary since the board has one of those dual BIOS configurations (I think it does on the UD4), which will automatically reset the BIOS to its default specs whenever something is up.

I would recommend reseating your GPU and memory. If the memory isn't placed into the bank properly, usually the system will hang.

If that doesn't work, I would consider trying to get the system to boot without the case to see if anything is still shorting it.

Last resort would be to reseat the CPU/heatsink, but I get the impression this probably isn't it.

I'd also check to see if your 8 pin cable is the correct one. There's an 8-pin for the CPU, and there's an 8 (sometimes 6+2) pin cable usually used for graphics cards.

I'd also check again, that you have the control wires hooked up correctly, from your case, to your motherboard, if your just 1 pin off, on the reset, or power, or other connections, that could cause you problems.

If you do get to the point of pulling the cpu. Then take a flashlight, and look very closely at your socket, and check for bent pins, if you have any, you should RMA the board.

I took out my CPU and two pins are clearly bent in an improper manner. Guess I'll send the board back and get another. Thanks!

Good luck with the new board!

Also, I'm not sure what cpu cooler your using, but just remember to tighten it down evenly, never going to far with one corner or another.
