Guys i need urgent help.
I tried to secure erase drive with parted magic, and i failed.
And now my SSD is not recognized in boot priority, i can get in OS, but only through boot override. In other words every time i want to get in OS, i have to go in BIOS first.

Not directed at anyone in particular, but: there seems to be a lot of people that don't know troubleshooting 101. People if the computer won't boot, try pulling the board out and set it on cardboard with minimal connections, ram, etc and go from there one step at a time. Just a dropped screw, a cooler backplate shorting the motherboard, all sorts of things can happen. I read a post the other day where the poor guy didn't install the standoffs for the motherboard. Simple stuff gets you every time and even experienced builders make mistakes and laugh at themselves later, I know I've done some bonehead things because I had a brain fart.
Folks here want to help, but you need to help yourself and learn basic computer building. It is appalling how many people keep sending back boards and other components only to have the same problem over and over again, and there are help forums for the newbie builders.
Don't take this as mean spirited, just learn the basic stuff or take an A+ course or something.

Yeh, my 2008 GA-EP45-UD3P build had a screw behind the board. I was using a case from another build and took the old board out laying flat and put the UDP3 in soon after. She loop booted. Lucky me, I was taking it out with the case standing up and it fell as I loosened a board screw. Heh, I retrieved it and tightened up the screw and have never looked back. I always stand the case up now before assembly. smile.gif

My board functioned fine for weeks then BAM! That's why I got a Gigabyte tech on the horn and let him tell me to RMA mine. No need to cardboard bench mine though. Would not boot with an eSATA device connected, random boots, would not stay in sleep mode, USB inconsistencies, Random Auto Play popup windows, and more. We did the CMOS reset, the original F4 and then F7, and then F8 all in both switch settings. Was on the phone for 45 minutes and he said "Please RMA the board". Glad I had a fresh pot of coffee on hand when I called.

We looked at Wake on LAN settings, removed and inserted different USB devices before and after booting, he had me look up and read back some of the items in my Event Viewer, the cold boot issue was of particular interest to him. Sometimes it would hang at the Megatrends Logo, sometimes after that at the blank screen after that with a blinking cursor, and what got him was sometimes it would cold boot with the eSATA connected. There was more but........


I rely heavily on this forum but also know I have another resource in Gigabyte phone support. When I get my board back I'm gonna cardboard bench it from the start.

I am afraid to jink myself but i have had no lockups in the 5 days (15-18 hours of gaming) since i took the card out.thumb.gif

So either there is an incompatability issue with the sound card or an issue with the PAX drivers i was using.


Is it possible Sin to get Gigabyte to look into the incompatability issue or is it because PCI is not native to the board and i am to coin a phrase SOL smile.gif and i just have to buy a PCI-E sound card?

I would like to think that the issue could be resolved though as they resolved the issue with that RAID interface in the last BIOS IIRC.



Anyways a big thank you to Yor_ for suggesting this to me!

Hi guys, i'm a newbie here with newly purchased 3570k and z77x ud3h (running bios f11). I've tried overclocking to 4.5ghz using vcore 1.26 v (very stable so far). Right now i've been messing around with the offset vcore so i can lower vcore during idle. I set offset to 0.08 so in theory at load will get 1.26 v (my stock vcore is 1.18). But during stress test (aida64, prime, ibt) my vcore jumped to 1.35 which is way more than my comfort zone. Can someone teach me what setting should i mess with so at load i can get exactly 1.26?

Yep, sometimes you don't have any other choice but to RMA, and that's a fact. But that should be the last solution.

I'm so glad and happy you were able to solve the problem man, like me!. BUT...that is only half of the problem...because I still want to keep using the audio interface I took out! frown.gif

I guess it has something to do with the PCI bus, cause the Firewire (IEEE 1394a) audio interface I was using connects through the onboard VIA 1308p chip, which uses the PCI bus to connect to the rest of the system. Your X-Fi card is a PCI card, so...go figure.

I would love to keep using my card too man.

It has served me well over the last 4 years so not a big loss to replace it.
