Yeah. I went out and spent a few dollars on an 3.5mm extension cord because, like you, my computer is in an awkward position as well.

Hi guys, I just saw a few posts considering the SB+Z77 gigabyte line to be a problem with boot loops etc. This is also what I am experiencing. Is there any solution or are we accepting it as "thats just how it is". Is Gigabye offering RMA on this? I'd happily trade in this board for a 68 if it would relieve me of this startup nonsense.

Do you mean it does not work at all anymore? If that's what's happening to you, if you want the backup BIOS chip to take over and flash the main BIOS chip, you power on by holding down the power button and keeping it pressed. After a few seconds, the PC will turn off again. At this point, the next time you power on, you'll see a screen from the backup BIOS asking you what you want it to do.

If you mean you just have strange boot problems that are sometimes there and sometimes not or whatever, you should try a different BIOS. Theoretically, you'd best contact Gigabyte's tech support and ask them what to do so that they know about the problem. It won't ever get fixed if no one contacts them, you know. tongue.gif

The other thing you could do is trying a bunch of beta BIOS versions yourself. There's a collection in this post here:

http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/28441-gigabyte-latest-beta-bios-11.html#post274647

Those are all BIOS versions that were given out by Gigabyte's tech support to people that went and asked for help with a problem. No one knows what the changes are in the various versions.

It's the second one smile.gif

You're right of course, but I felt like after 600-something pages, there would have been a conclusion about this issue tongue.gif, It's a pretty old board by now, wasnt sure if they were still in the habit of supporting it. Just feel a bit defeated after replacing my PSU and mobo and still not making any progress whatsoever.

The conclusion is that this board don't suffer from boot loops in general. You're like the 5th person who experiences those with these boards. Describe your boot loops. When did they start? After OC? After the build? You changed something? Most of the time it's incompatible RAM or bad OC.

Ok, here's my story smile.gif

My pc:
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H
2500K Sandy bridge @ stock/4.3ghz
Club3D 7870XT, overclocked
8 GB Kingston XPS 1600
Asus Xonar XT
Samsung 120g SSD
WD 3TB HD
Corsair 600CX & Tagan 480


The problem is the following:
1. When I start my PC after having left it off for about an hour and it POSTS, it will hang when booting windows, no BSOD, USB devices lose power.
2. After resetting, it usually gets into a boot loop. Starting, no post, restarting, no post etc.

The problem can be completely and 100% solved (meaning NEVER hang in windows and ALWAYS post) by:
1. In problem 1's case, I go into the BIOS, wait a minute, don't save and exit. This makes it boot just fine
2. in problem 2's case, I unplug the power cord for about 10 seconds, plug it back in, and it will boot just fine. Without unplugging, it will stay in boot loop mode.
3. The problem can also be solved by loading optimized defaults, and not overclocking. Not AT ALL. So heightening the multiplier by 1 (from 3.3 to 3.4 ghz) already causes this issue.

Once the PC is running, there are no issues whatsoever. It has never crashed, it runs superPi at 4.3ghz without any issues, can play games on it all night long. When it boots into windows and doesnt hang right after login, it will stay rock solid.

What I have done to try to fix the problem:
1. New PSU. Obviously the first thing I tried. Didnt help.
2. New Motherboard. Got the same motherboard so I didnt have to reinstall windows. Didnt help, exactly the same issues occur.
3. Booting without audio and video card, nope
4. Bios: tried F10 (no video from video card), F16 and F18i, all the same behaviour.
5. Loading optimized defaults: works fine until I touch the multiplier, then problems start again.

The reason I dont believe there is anything wrong with the system like Bad memory, unstable overclock etc. is because it is rock solid when it boots. If you have any suggestions at all, I'd love to hear it!

Jaap

(one more note: I have a fan controller with a little powered screen. On every unstable boot (meaning one that doesn't POST or one that is gonna crash windows) I always see it blink several times during the startup procedure. Not blinking is pretty much an indicator of a good boot. This made me suspect the power supply, but after replacing that the issue didnt go away. It's still weird though...)

I am not exactly sure what causes your issues then. I wish OCN had a search of users with the same components, so it can be clarified whether they have the same issues. However, like I said RAM can cause weird boot issues sometimes and its one of the things you didn't try. Even if you try, there is no guarantee that that was the culprit.

Can you test your components somewhere else?

Hmmm DDR3 testing is a bit hard for me, and it wouldnt explain why everything works just fine as long as i dont touch the multiplier. It's worth a shot I guess, maybe at the next LAN-party I attend...

I feel your pain. I'm running a 2500k on the ud5h and had boot loops with lots of different bios and ram combinations. Finally I found f16c-mod5 on tweaktown one day and gave it a shot.

It's been around 4 months and not a SINGLE boot loop. This bios was my computers personal jesus. I linked you to the bios below.

Just one of many betas floating around, but solved my SB on the ud5h boot loop issues. Good luck man!
