post #1501 of 3170
hey all

this is a bit off topic but..

I've got the ASrock PRO3 Z77, the baby of the range and have been having issues with cold booting, the problem goes as follows:

I'll turn on the PC and all the fans spin up for about 10 seconds then it 'dies" completely, then it tries again and will normally boot into windows with no problems, and sometimes on the odd occasion it'll go through that cycle 2 or 3 times and dozens more if i change any BIOS settings. Its not a HUGE issue but its just a little issue that i want to get right so i can have my PERFECT dream rig

Solutions ive tried:
Disabling S5 sleep
Disabling PCI power on
Disabling all other device power on (this killed it totally, had to reset BIOS)
Got a bigger PSU (thought that was the issue, nope it ain't)
Flashed to latest BIOS, to no avail (1.30)

If anyone else has had this issue and have fixed it I'd love to see

side note: Asus owners had a similar problem with their Z68 chipset and their was a fix released in one of the BIOS updates, there was also an option that you could disable that would fix the issue, i can't find the same option in my BIOS

Thanks in advance

On my last motherboard I would hit the power button it would spool the fans up and then turn off then kick on like normal. I was told by someone that it was no big deal. Never got an explanation why it did what it did but it never affected anything.

That sounds nothing like the problem he is having. In fact what you are referring to is before your BIOS fan settings are implemented it delivers the full power to the fans in order to start them, as some fans when set below a certain value will not start (due to a lack of power), so the only way to get the fan to run so low is to give it full power and drop it down to the level you have set or that the motherboard has determined is required.

My CPU fan spins up then stops then spins up again but it seems normal. My case fans spin up but they all run off the psu. I have a z77 Fatal1ty by the way.

This is weird... I was looking at one of my old CPU-Z validation and its been rejected for some reason... Any ideas?

p.s OC wasn't stable, I was only able to do geekbench on it.

Are all of your cores @ x50 multiplier?
Do you have the latest version of CPUZ?

Not sure since I took it back in June (while benching geekbench) and yes I was at the latest CPUZ version back then.

Only difference between mine in my sig and yours is that you are running windows 7 ultimate.
