GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 194

post #1931 of 6656
Well after a month and a half of waiting for parts and constructing my new system, I finally turned it on today. It won't boot for me. It's a UDH5 Gigabyte mainboard. I am using GSKILL F3-17000CL9Q (4 x 4GB) RAM (PC-2133)

The CPU is an Ivy Bridge 3770k

I'm quite pissed, considering the time I spent on this, but I'm hoping you can help. I've tried clearing the CMOS, and using a single memory stick in it and it goes through the following codes:

19, 15, 36, 4F

Then it just shuts down.

Any subsequent attempt to power it back up without clearing the CMOS just yields a post code of "DB" and turns itself off

Thanks in advance.

Flip the BIOS switch on your UD5H to load the other BIOS. DB is a failed BIOS flash error code. For some reason, sounds like your motherboard shipped with one of the BIOS being bad.

The switch should be down near your USB hub ports in the lower right of your motherboard.

P.S. hopefully will get response from GB on how to disable raid screen
there will be an option in upcoming BIOSes,as of right now PLL Overvoltage is on auto (i think it's ON past 4.4 if i remember correctly)
Thx for info. +1

Looks like the backup bios is bad too... Same thing. A few more codes posted but in the end, all it does is power off.

At this point I have no other recourse but to contact Gigabyte and possibly get a new board. I've taken the liberty of buying 3 more QDC's so that I can just disconnect everything without having to drain the entire system.

Reseat your CPU and check your pins.
Do not tight CPU cooler to much.

yea db=dual BIOS code, its actually one code that can be identified by name. I don't think it is the board.Try putting the motherboard on the box it came with and build the system. So it just goes to db over and over? try one stick of memory in the slot furthest from the CPU.

Yes it just posts "db" right before the power cuts out every time. According to the manual, that error code is associated with BIOS flash failure... So I assumed it was the board. :/

I will have to wait until I get the rest of the QDC's to try this - unfortunately I can't remove the board without draining the entire water system. It's getting exhausting. As of this week I will just put QDC's on the tubes going to and from the cooling blocks on the CPU and GPU, so that I can just disconnect them quickly to work with the bare board.

Luckily the tray is removable so I can take the whole thing out and work on it away from the PC. I think that's my best bet.. Should be getting those sometime this week.

I also did try the one stick of RAM in the slot furthest away from the PC, and got the same issue.

Thanks!

Perhaps I did screw the cpu block down too tight, but I didn't think so. I'll re-seat the CPU once I get those QDC's

Do you use a ssd as primary (for windows) however, didn't you?
yes i have OS on 64Gb C300,the 30Gb SSD is a cache for my 500Gb WD
P.S. hopefully will get response from GB on how to disable raid screen

I don't think you can get rid of the initial screen since is part of the RST rom, I have it on my old X58 too and I wouldn't mind having it on my new Z77 machine either smile.gif

Ok I tried a few other things. I removed the video card and tried without that just in case the card was bad - but I got the same issue. I tried multiple configurations with the RAM - one SIMM on the farthest slot, 2 on the farthest 2, 1 on the second over from the closest to the CPU.... all with the same power down problem

Now sometimes I see 4F flash up before it shuts off. Other times I briefly see what I think is "63" or something... but it always powers off.
