Gigabyte G1. Sniper 5/5M/3/M3 Owners Thread/Club - Page 20

post #191 of 1879
Hey Guys,

I'm having issues entering the bios on my G1 Sniper 3, upon attempting to enter the bios, it just gives me the header for the 3d bios, and a blue screen under neath where the normal functions would be.

I have been able to enter the bios before no problem.

Here are a list of things i've tried.

Resetting the bios per the switch button, as instructed in the manual, when booting up i get the load optimized defaults and reboot or enter bios, entering the bios gives me the same behavior, its just stuck there, no keys appear to work to load the non 3d bios, no keys appear to work after hitting enter to "enter the bios" from that initial selection.

I've tried resetting the bios again, and booting from the integrated without the dedicated card in the machine, and I get the same behavior.

I then said what the hell, let's try flashing the bios with the @bios tool, i got the latest F5 bios, im at F4. I msconfiged disabled all non ms services and any startup programs, and rebooted. Bios flash fails, so I tried rebooting and to tried to load qflash from the boot screen, I get the same behavior, bios header and blank blue screen underneath. F9 system information gives me the same behavior, So at this point somehow the bios is hosed in some odd way, i never tried to flash the bios before the issue occured. Attempts to flash the bios were in response to fix this issue. I've been into the bios before when i initially built this box, to correct the ram clock speed, making it run at 1600 vs 1333, but thats about it.

Everything else works fine, i can boot into windows etc, im posting from the computer as I type this. But i can't get into the dang bios, i need to turn on virtualization so I can run 64-bit VM's, this feature is disabled by default, per the manual, it can be enabled within the bios but now im running into this dang problem.

In my experience with this board and your not able to enter the bios icame down to two things.

1) Not enough vcore voltage

2) Not enough DVID offset voltage if your using it...

Should be stock default, now that i've reset the the thing a couple times. I've not modified anything manually, the 1600mhz initial ram clock speed was a automatic profile when intially set, its back to stock verified thru Sisoft Sandra. Been running stock clock 3.5ghz the entire time.

did an unboxing for the Gigabyte g1.Sniper 3. I'm not good yet but I am getting better. I need to know how to edit the videos better and make my own intro effects and such.

Oh I see you have 32gb memory installed. So I am guessing that 4X8gb sticks lol dugh Ne way try taking out the two sticks in the black slots and see wot happens... I bet for one thing your going to need more dram voltage.
