New build on ASRock Z68 Fatal1ty Gen3 shuts down immediately after power on; cycles - Page 2

Great to hear the positive ASRock reviews. Can't wait to give this new board a run for its money!
post #12 of 17
Here is a story.

I bought my E3G3, and my friend purchased an ASUS MIVE.

The box to his 2600K was severely smashed so we RMA'd it with newegg ( take no chances ).

In play, My E3G3 was the oly board that could get my 2500K to 5ghz.

Not only was it stable for an hour on P95, but it was stable at 1.42v. The MIVE would not do over 4.9ghz at any voltage.

Very robust boards for the money.

I know the MIVE is meant also to boast other features other than voltage and multiplier control.

but without the ened for such extras, these boards kick ass right down to the Pro3 gen3.

I have been using almost exclusively ASRock boards sicne about that time, have never been let down by performance or customer service.

UPDATE: While I still applaud ASRock for there service and willingness to ship me out a new BIOS chip free of charge, I have to bite the hand that feeds me a little. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, etc. etc. It's been 3+ weeks and I still have not received my chip. I called them last Friday and they were out of my particular chip and had only received it the day I called. Understandable, but not on the level that I was not informed of this 2.5 week delay. A week later (after being guaranteed a 3 day delivery) I still don't have my chip. Calling earlier, they said they'd send out another one via Fedex (it wasn't Fedex'd beforehand). All in all, I'm mixed. The problem is that it's my main computer with all my stuff on it (being the summer, that's mainly games) and I just left it not working assuming it would initially only be down for a couple days. So three weeks of using laptops has not made me a happy camper. Had I been given the timeframe I would've reassembled my old rig and been happier for it. Beggars still cannot be choosers, though.

So, sent a support request via email. Realizing that would take a long time, I found a phone number and called them. Rang twice, maybe, immediate answer talking to a real person. Told her the problem, she said "send me a copy of the invoice and your shipping info and we'll send you a new BIOS chip". Gotta say, liking this company already!

I have a similar problem, that started recently. The only way I can get it to boot now is to switch off power to the machine by unplugging the power cable and leaving for a few minutes. Then it will boot. Otherwise I get exactly the same problem as you. I've cleared the BIOS multiple times. You referenced another thread regarding this problem, but I can't seem to find it. Can you link?

It was so long ago I have no idea where I would've got the information. I just Googled my issue and was delivered an answer. Your problem, though, sounds much different than mine. If it only started recently and you had it before I would look elsewhere for the cause. My problem was that my BIOS chip didn't support my processor but your chip is definitely supported (since it worked). Just from what you told me I would suggest that it could be a PSU issue. It could also be a host of other things. Maybe the CPU's hurting? All I can do is suggest to you the same things other people would (which is usually pretty ludicrous): get another CPU and test, get another PSU and test, etc. etc. Maybe make your own forum post in more detail.

In short, I can't find the website again if I tried (no idea what I Googled) and I don't think it would help you anyways.

Best of luck.

Here below are some common/rare conditions that would make a board power on then instantly turn itself off.


Common: Bent CPU socket pin

Semi-Rare: A wire came out of the sleeve in the 24-pin ATX PWR connector to the motherboard.

Rare: Bad PSU or Motherboard


A overheated CPU can also turn the system off

This is a somewhat belated follow up to my previous posting above. I flashed the latest bios and the problem went away. Just in case anyone ever has a similar problem and stumbles across this thread.
