Gigabytes Z77X-UD3H infamous bootloop - Page 2

post #11 of 29
that light is the BIOS selector. IMO this happened to a UP5 of mine i had to use my other UP5 and trash the first one. IMO i would RMA and tell them it does this if you can't fix it.


If yu clear the CMOS and it still does this then its bad.

BTW try one more thing for me and tell me what happens, what if you take out the memory and replace the memory with another pair of memory? Does it still do this or boot right up?

So you do have trouble after clearing the CMOS, right?

Sadly I have no other RAM, but if I remove one stick into a different slot or take one out it still happen. Perhaps I can't clear the cmos, it was fine until I turned my pc off for hours and came home when it was raining, maybe the weather is effecting it or something? Do you think I should leave it cycling or turn it off for hours and try to turn it on and update the bios to a beta etc?

I have this board and all that I do when it occasionally hangs is to remove the power cable completely from the power supply, wait a sec and plug it back in and fire it up. I realize that resetting the CMOS and pulling the battery should do the trick, but for the sake of trying something new, it might be worth a minute to play with it.


FYI, just thougt I would point out that I am using 4 4gb sticks of corsair vengeance w/ X.M.P setting at 1600.

Was there perhaps a lighting strike or something? The behavior you are describing requires an RMA. frown.gif

Nope frown.gif And yeah same speed, took out the cmos battery unplugged it and now it's gone back to cycling, it did this before but never like this, maybe it was after I flashed it. Also sorry for the multiple posts, laptop froze -.-

EDIT: Okay if I remove all the ram, it stops at code 53 and reboots. Indicating it is reconizing there is no ram avaible, a glimmer of hope at least

the board really shouldn't act like that. If you aren't able to get a POST then the board is most likely done for. Do try to do the backup BIOS thing, but if it isn't even posting then that wont help. IMO i would pull the system apart and put it back together. Pull out the CPU and remount it and so on, take it out of the case.

Good idea, going to make a make shift workbench using my motherboards case, make it easier. Hopefully it'll boot up and I'll be able to update the bios.

I mentioned that stuff about the second BIOS chip because I had a problem that I'd describe exactly as in the OP with my D3H. The board was in a boot loop and you could hear the tiniest beep from the speaker. It was more like a click as it was so short. This continued indefinitely in a loop. The D3H doesn't have that display for what it's doing like the UD3H, so there's no way to compare if it's really the same boot loop behavior.

I don't quite remember what I did exactly to get the board to that point. I think one of the two times was caused when trying to overclock memory (a lot). The other case was trying a recent beta UEFI, playing around with Windows 8 and Secure Boot and Fast Boot. Both times, clearing CMOS didn't work. Nothing could revive the first BIOS chip. It didn't make sense at all. I'm also pretty sure one of the times I could actually boot Windows and do experiments, but after rebooting the board started with its boot loop shenanigans. I think that happened when I was doing things to the memory settings.
