I broke my motherboard by putting it to sleep? - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Thread Starter 
The thing is handle my stuff with great care and i've never touched it once it was inside the pc.. i just noticed that my i5 running at 1.6ghz isn't really great, and the bios was the only thing i changed. Not only that it successfully updated the bios and BOOTED into windows twice before i put it to sleep and now it's ****ed...

I can't explain how miffed off i am, this is like the 6th RMA

the first 5 msi boards yes i used different ram and then found out that it was somehow breaking the boards, so i got these gskill (that were marketed as p67 compatible) and it's worked FLAWLESSLY for 6 weeks on this gigabyte board, i was quite happy with my pc, but i knew at some point it would mess up...

had my q6600 build for 4 years and not one hitch,

what can i say fella,stuff goes bad
i used to have a pair of g skill ddr2 that done 1200 24/7 then one day...not even stable in single channel mode@800 with slack timings...

could it be your ram settings or overvolting your ram?it seems a big coincedence,perhaps too big to ignore.

i always manually set my timings and voltage, the other voltages were all set to normal, old ram was 1.6v, this pair 1.5, its not the ram or cpu going bad though, its the motherboard, as soon as you put a new board in they all work fine again tongue.gif

Guys I now this thread is old but I am a new Club Member...

I am experiencing the same things but in a slightly different way, my motherboard or PSU broke as well after putting it to sleep.

When I shut down the computer, for some reason after 1-4 minutes, PSU makes a power loop for a second, then it waits 2-3 seconds and then again, continuous loop. All fans are triggered for a split second and case´s power light flashes as well.

* PC boots and works properly when I turn on the PC with the power button*

PC Hardware:

PSU:Cooler Master V-850
Motherboard: Asus Z87-A Bios:1207
Video Card: Nvidia 460 GTX
RAM: 8 GB Kingston DDR3L 1.35V
Case: Antec 302


Already tried the following steps:

Cleared CMOS battery and jumper
Restored Windows to earlier time
Restored Windows Image from a backup
If I unplug all power cables from PSU, PSU makes loop 1 time and then it stops.

Curious thing that I noticed is that GPU fans are triggered by 1 second loop even if both PCI-Express cables are not connected to the video card.

Not sure what else to do, I plan tonight to check motherboard´s front and rear for debris, but PC works properly when I power it up, so not sure if this is a short circuit or not?

Guys, issue has been resolved for me, it was the PSU, I tried another PSU next to the PC and no more power loops. I guess that motherboard killed PSU electricity since nobody was turning on the PC while it was off. At least Asus has great short circuit protection quality on their motherboards.
