Help with my budget build GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 + i5-3750k

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
So I was running the GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 with an i3-2100, no problems. I wanted to upgrade to a quad core, and saw that both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge share the same socket. So I jumped on a i5-3750k while on a Newegg sale. Just got it, installed it.

Nothing. Won't even post.

So I did some hunting, and found that my mobo needed a firmware update to fix the issue. So I flashed the F8 bios via USB, and started up. All is well, get to the windows boot logo, then blue screen. This is where my limited google'ability has stumped me. What are some things I can do to fix this? Or am I SOL?

I have been going back bio's updates to see if maybe an older version is more stable, but no luck.

http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3806#bios (Where I have been getting bios)

Thanks in advance. This is more impulse stupidity and I know a new mobo would fix. But I am stubborn. Want to save some scratch if possible.

In the BIOS, toggle the SATA controller mode. For example, if it's in AHCI mode, then switch it to IDE. If it's in IDE mode, then switch it to SATA.

Toggled from IDE to AHCI. There actually is no SATA option in my bios. The toggle has me locked on a "Loading Operations System..." screen.

I did try resetting the CMOS, no luck. I am really hoping to avoid a system wipe. My fear is that it may not fix it, haha. But I can see how that would make the most sense. I want to fiddle with it a little more and see if there is any other means.

No, putting a different and supported CPU in a motherboard does not require reinstalling Windows. It doesn't even require reactivation. I think maybe there's something else going on here, and it may be due to the BIOS flash because I'm guessing that when you flashed to the new BIOS, it resulted in giving you all of the factory default settings.

I will say the bios flash has done more good. It at least got me to this logo screen. I couldn't even get it to post on whatever the old bios were. The mobo only supports ivy bridge with a bios flash. It is a z67 chipset

Not true. I upgraded many CPUs and never had to reinstall the OS

It's P67. ;) I know that P67 (and Z68) only supports Ivy Bridge with the newer BIOS.

 

Anyway, this has me stumped...

This guy was using the same mobo, went with an i7-3770k and with a bios flash had it working, so I know it can work. I just want to know why I'm not so lucky, I guess.

*Edit* And thanks for catching my typo, haha. Yes, I meant p67. Regardless, I thought this would be easy. Bleh

Oh crap. It's H67. I wasn't paying attention. lol

 

Anyway, this has to be due to going back to the factory defaults (which is what I believe came with the new BIOS). If it is, then that would mean that the solution is just finding the setting.

 

Do you have more than one hard drive that has Windows 7 on it?
