P8P67-M PRO double post boot

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

hope I can find the correct and working answer in here though the problem has been reported and allegedly been called fixed. Let's see:

I experience the double post boot with my asus board.
Here are my specs:

* Asus P8P67-M PRO B3 with latest BIOS (0713)
* 2x4 GB G.Skill PC3 12800 (DDR3-1600) XL 9-9-9-24-2N 1.5v
* 2x2 GB G.Skill PC3 12800 (DDR3-1600) XL 9-9-9-24-2N 1.5v
* Intel i5 2500K
* Asus GTX570 DirectCUII
* Corsair 750W PSU
* Windows 7 64 bit

I experience the double POST boot after cold down and sometimes get the message overclocking failed.
I saw in various articles in the internet that apparently setting the PCIe wakeup to enabled will fix this. This is not the case for me. It is also not fixed when I disable the PLL setting.
I do not overclock manually. It happens when I set the motherboard in the EZ settings either to normal or to optimized. It does not make a difference.

Anyone has any other ideas what I could do or need to do? Is there a BIOS update on it's way to prevent those things from happening?

Hello all again and if someone could shed some light on this, it would be great. Thanks

So this is what you've tried?

I’ll explain the fix below and give some information about why this happens.

First, I would like to stress the importance of flashing the BIOS to the latest BIOS revision as listed on our support website, http://support.asus.com/download. You can access the ASUS EZ Flash tool from within the UEFI (advanced options, tools) to flash the BIOS from any removable device such as a USB flash drive.
From time to time we needed to implement full resets in order to maintain stability due to the architecture of the Sandy Bridge platform. For instance, the system may require one full reset when the PCH power has been cut during S5 power state. To fix the most common additional reset (double POST when powering on from off state), enter UEFI BIOS -> go to ‘Advanced’ tab -> go down to ‘APM’, press Enter -> enable the “Power on by PCIe.” function. Then press F10 to save & exit. After save & exit, let the system boot into Windows or other OS, then perform a proper shutdown: Start button -> Shut down. You will no longer have the double POST. We will fix this in an upcoming BIOS release.

Hi turrican,

Yes that is what I tried. In normal mode and also in optimized mode. No change.
I read somewhere else to disable the PLL mode as well but it does not help.

I contacted ASUS tech support as well, pending answer though. And maybe I wait until XMAS for an answer. Hopefully not though.

Any other ideas?

Tried to disable the Marvell controller from bios? Also if you have a JMicron controller, disable that too.

Yes, the Marvell is disabled. To my knowledge the P8P67-M PRO does not have a JMicron controller, but to be sure I need to check when I am at home.

As suspected there is no JMicron controller on this board.

More ideas anyone?

Does your system boot up, shuts down, boots up again? Or is it ASUS screen, blank screen, ASUS screen?

Hi nethermir,

It is the boot up shutdown boot up thing. Not the Asus double splash screen which is caused by the Marvell controller if enabled.

Hi all,

It seems like I have fixed it but don't know why.
What I did was loading the optimized defaults in the BIOS. Reboot. System started into windows without problems. Shutdown and switched off the PSU and pulled the plug. After 5 minutes I booted up again, went into BIOS and set everything to the status before the load of optimized defaults. Please note I did not enable the PCIe setting and did not disable the PLL setting. Then booted into windows and shut down again. The next boot did not give me the double POST. And it stayed like this ever since. Hopefully it will.

I used the optimized setting in ez Asus. The CPU is running now on 4.2 GHz and the memory on 1600MHz like they should.

Don't know what is different know but it seems to work again. Fingers crossed.
