Asus P8Z68-V :: standby light red

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have built my first rig, spec:

Asus P8Z68-V
i7-2600k
2 x 4gb G.Skill Ripjaws RAM
Corsair H80 cooler
Cooler Master 550W PSU


Whenever the machine is turned on the Standby light on the motherboard is red, I have done some reading on the net and think this may signify a problem with the CPU? I am not sure of this and have no idea how to go about resolving the issue...

Any help would be gratefully received!!

BTW when starting from cold (ie not restarting the machine in Windows) the machine will turn on, then restart again into Windows - I have done some reading about this too and this seems quite common, I thought I should mention it anyway...

If you mean the power switch and the bottom centre ish of the board staying red then that is normal, you might be able to turn the led off in the bios but im not sure

As for restarting do you mean you turn it on, see windows loading up then it restarts and then windows loads properly?

If so thats not a good sign, did you install windows fresh for this rig?

I haven't overclocked yet.....

The system POSTs then restarts into Windows?

I think you've answered my question, it is the Standby LED on the board - this is normal?

Which light is it?

441

Do you have the TPU or EPU switches turned to on or off? (default is off)

Like the guy above me said, if by "standby light" you mean the power switch on the very bottom of the board by the usb hookups, then yes it is always red, thats the boards design. However, if any of those lights in this picture are permanently lit, then that signifies where an actual problem lies.

The "reboot loop" has to do with either the onboard SATA controller (Marvell?) and/or one other setting. I can't recall it off the top of my head, but it is normal, so nothing is wrong with your board. I disabled the one and changed the other setting and it stopped it. I wish I knew which setting it was, but someone will hopefully drop by who knows. I just wanted to mention that it's normal and not a fault with the board.

If by reboot loop you mean the double post on these boards then this is what you do:

disable Marvell and Jmicron controllers in bios, as well as disable full screen post message. and bingo thumb.gif post is reduced by like 8 seconds

And there we go. That's what I was talking about.
