A6 is a strange place to halt.

I would try and force it to boot to the backup bios by holding the power button until it starts and then shuts off the computer again. Then press the power button again and it should boot to backup bios and flash it over the main one.
Ah yes it's Ab thanks for that !
It has dual bios being the sniper 5 g1 which as I have mentioned I have tried various bios switch configurations. All halt at Ab
I would try the holding down of the on switch however I have had a problem for cafés months where the only way u can switch on is to flick the psu power button in and off several times until she boots up.
I think this is a psu fault as I have taken the main cable from the mother board and shorted the power wires. And I still need to flick the power switch on/ off on the psu several time before I get joy.
However this is an old problem the Ab is new problem from last nights flash to bios 10b

ok well psu problems aside, Ab means that the bios is waiting for an input from you. in general Ab means it has successfully POST'd and is at the bios screen.

A left of field suggestion, try a different monitor, or a different output from your computer to the monitor (perhaps the mobo graphics?)

Thanks lantis.
I have tried different monitor and different monitor socket. My monitors just stay in standby.
I'm thinking the problem is. When I updated the bios a message said that the computer needed to cycle power. As soon as I saw that I knew I was in trouble because psu won't switch of and on without my physical interjection.
I'm stripping her down draining the system oif 5 litres of water tonight and will rma my seasonic. 1250 gold
Major job
Fingers crossed it was the psu not allowing to cycle the power that caused the problem and a new psu will solve it ! I really hope so !

Post back after your psu is in and we can keep going from there but at that point I'm almost out of ideas frown.gif

I'm actually thinking that bios 10b may not like the 4 sticks of ram I have installed. I know this was an issue for some people with this motherboard.

This Is why you should not install A beta bios its called Beta for a reason I will not update my Gig z87 till its not in beta state

What do you mean when you say you took the main cable from the motherboard and shorted the power wires? You mean you shorted pin 16 to ground to see if the psu functions, or something else?

Are you sure your case switch wires are plugged in properly to the motherboard header and make good contact?
post #2999 of 3251
Yes and yes.
However when I did bridge pin 16 instead of automatically switching on I had to flick on and off the power supply several times before it would come to life. Powe supply has now been rma'd
I hope this wAs correct.
:-)
