Gigabyte G1 Assassin 2 Stuck!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just finished my first build. Everything works fine during startup I get stuck in the Gigabyte splash screen. My build is as followed:

Gigabyte G1 Assasin2
Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4X8GB) 2133 mhz
Intel i7 3930k
Gigabyte GTX 680
Samsung 250 GB SSD
3TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM
Corsair H100i with push/pull
Corsair TX1050
NZXT Switch 810 Case.

I have the windows 7 cd in the CD drive but the system gets stuck at the Splash menu. I have a keyboard connected using the PS/2 port. The caps lock and num lock light up but when I press any other key, nothing happens. Here is the screen that i get stuck at:

What could be the problem? I unplugged unnecessary drives and ports and tried to boot with one stick of RAM but nothing changed. I also unplugged everything and tried to Clear CMOS by removing battery and touching the CLEAR CMOS pins with a screw driver. Is this something Normal? Should I take it to a PC repair shop or should I get in contact with GIGABYTE? I need the PC urgently as I have a video due next friday. What would be the fastest solution?

Thank You Very Much!!!

Did you reseat the CPU. Did you recheck all your cables and connections?

Try going on another computer so you can download a Bios update, and flash the bios to newest version.

Make sure your motherboard is not shorting either. This could happen from it not properly being seated on the standoffs correctly.

I did not reseat the CPU however I checked everything to see if it was connected properly.

I cant control anything on the splash screen so I cannot update my BIOS.

does shorting happen if the motherboard is in contact with the case? Should I unscrew everything and try reseating everything? RIght now I have everything unplugged and the battery out. Someone suggested I do this and wait an hour or so.

Check the motherboard standoffs. Make sure you have the motherboard on the proper standoffs for your case. If it's making contact it could be shorting.

If none of this is the case, then RMA the board quickly.

EDIT: Might want to refer to this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1389666/starting-up-pc seem to be the same problem

Hi! Sorry for being late hehe. It's the graphics card causing this problem. First you will have to borrow an other graphics card for a sec. FIX: Enter BIOS, And change GPU slot mode to "Legacy", DONE!. And remember to do the same on your backup BIOS if you accidentally reset you main bios sometime thumb.gif
