Like I stated before, Windows 8 is becoming a bit cluttered due to the applications that are not uninstalling due to compatibility. Time to clean up.

Reformatted. I now have a Raid 0 array in Windows. That solution was much easier than all the ridiculous battling I've done over the last few days. biggrin.gif
Yeah, sometimes that's the best route to go.

I have a reference Sapphire 7970 and replaced the cooler with an Accelero Xtreme aftermarket cooler. This effectively makes my card a 3 slot monster with insane cooling/noise level barring water cooling. My problem is that if I added another card to the second PCIE3.0 slot it would sit flush against my old card and it would be sucking up all that heat and recycling it and making it, obviously, hotter than it should be.

My question is, for anyone who can answer, if I drop my old 7970 like so will it block off the bottom row of connectors?



I'd like to think have that extra slot between cards would allow for better temperatures rather than ramming them right next to each other. Especially since neither would be reference cards. Obviously I can check a bit more thoroughly when I get home but was hoping someone else might have some prior experience or expertise to share on the matter thumb.gif.
I've had two water cooled cards in one of my UD5H boards where I borked the top slot and ended up having to use the bottom slot. I could get to all the motherboard connectors, just barely. smile.gif That was with 2x7950's with EK full water blocks.
(I eventually got the borked pci-e slot fixed and went back to the normal configuration)

I'm running a Z77x-UD5h with an i5-3570k, and I've been getting periodic BSOD's at unpredictable intervals, and have been unable to get them to repeat based on either load conditions or the programs running. Currently I'm running a fresh install of Windows 7 X64 Professional using the latest drivers from Gigabytes website, running with the XMP profile and optimized defaults in the BIOS for every other setting.

GA-Z77x-UD5H
i5-3570k
Seasonic 860w Platinum PSU
EVGA GTX 480
Corsair Neutron GTX 240gb (boot)
WD Caviar Black 1TB (Data)
Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Ram

I've been getting Stop Codes 1a and C2 which both imply a memory related issue, but I've run Memtest from Hiren's boot CD on each dimm in all four sockets for 7 passes with no errors. This has been happening since I built the system about 9 months ago, and the only hardware change has been moving from a mechanical HDD to an SSD. So I'm wondering if this may be a voltage regulation issue with my motherboard, or an issue with the CPU memory controller. I've already gotten the okay from Intel to RMA the CPU, but I'd hate to do that unless I know with reasonable certainty that that's the source of the problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.

Have you updated your UEFI?

z77x ud3h here, f18

so i wanted to format my pc with win 8 and put in with gpt partition, in order to put gpt you need to boot the dvd uefi

but i have no uefi options at all for boot

everything is default, but oc stuff

maybe f18 has a bug or changed menus, added features, but i remember in older bios i always had uefi boot options for every one of my units

also i feel my boot is too slow, i know raid 0 add a little time, but still mobo takes too much from start to load windows, like 8 sec, 10 secs, very annoying

my asus laptop with ssd takes much less time to boot, with a crap pentium b980 vs my 3570k

Have you tried one of the BETAs? The thing is that the setting has prob been moved.

I'm on F7 at the moment, but this has been an issue since I first built this system around 8 months ago. Do you think upgrading to F14 would have an impact?
post #4974 of 6656
My keyboard quit working under Windows. It works fine in the BIOS though. All USB ports are working fine, just those the keyboard quit working. No matter which USB port I plug the keyboard into, it wont work. The backlit keys are on so it is receiving power but it wont type. Oddly enough, my Wireless Bluetooth keyboard works fine as do all other USB devices I have plugged in. It's only the keyboard that refused to work. I reset everything in BIOS back to stock but the keyboard is still not working.

I un- and reinstalled the Intel USB drivers, to no avail. I reset everything in BIOS (F19H) to stock (Auto).

HELP?

Newer BIOS rarely have regressions but minor improvements so you might better flash it and see. Always good to have a newer BIOS.

HELP?

Have you gone into Device Manager and removed all entries for that keyboard?



Under Keyboards simply delete the entries mentioning that keyboard or it's manufacturer, Windows will then rediscover the hardware.

Thanks for the response! I just tried as you suggested, then did a reboot, it didn't work though. The Logitech UI recognizes the keyboard and I can change the ligthing scheme via the UI, it just wont type.

Next option is to try a restore point from a time when it was working, or if the keyboard is still in warranty get a replacement. Most of the troubleshooting is already done, if it was an issue with your motherboard or windows install the other keyboard shouldn't have functioned either.

That was my thought too but then why does the keyboard work in the BIOS or on other computers? It's not until it boots into Windows that it quits working.
I did try all the other USB port and found one port where it does work in Windows. The keyboard will work only in this one port, none of the others. I do remember having my external USB hub plugged into that same port at one point and it quit working on me too, so I'm pretty sure it has something to do with Windows and/ or this one particular USB port. Then again, why would the keyboard work only in one of the USB and none of the others. Very weird.
