crazy motherboard errors all of sudden

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is definitely long. Please stick with me, i need some help....
I've also posted this in the specific owners forum for the hoard as well but no hits yet, so I'm reaching out to all who can help.

Random different issues lately have been occuring with my system. I've been all over the net for the last two weeks looking for some solid answers. I currently run an Asus maximus iv gene z gen3, an i5 3570k, sli 760sc, 2x840 evo, 2x 1.5tb HDD, 16gb ripjawz, and a corsair rm850. I've been running perfectly fine up until last week. I was installing Debian on a flash drive, and when I went to restart my system I got nothing but a blank screen. I removed all ram and trying with a single stick, removed both video cards, tried with just one, tried switching the slot. Unplugged all data ports. Tried resting the CMOS. I Then went to the onboard video, and in to my bios which were obviously reset. Unfortunately, i hadnt saved my OC profile so i had to redo all my settings by memory. Got in to windos and things seemed a little different. Just in general. But quicly thought maybe i was just over thinking things. But i noticed that, for some reason, i cant shut my computer down now. Whether im in windows or even if i were in bios and just hit my power button. It will be off for about 6 seconds that turn back on. Well, i got over that. This last friday i turned off the system and before it rebooted i hit the switch on the rear of the PSU and left for the weekend and just got back home and the same blank screen happened, so instantly went back to my onboard without removing anything and got no response, so i tried going back to my main card, and voila, in business, bios was somehow reset again, and after last time, i saved the OC profile so loaded it back up. As i got in to windows, i noticed it was loading my small lcd as the primary monitor and not my 32" of my dual setup. I had to dick around with a bunch of ****, my time on the clock was changed back to 08 and whatnot, and my icons were placed all over. Then trying to make things "normal" i realized placing my icons along "the grid" wouldnt let me put them in their normal location(All across the bottom of the screen across the top of the bar. It pushed them all up an inch or so. Then they kept disappearing. All the spaces where task icons would be were all blank but the amount of them was there. so i restarted, and it seemed mildly normal after the restart but still the desktop icon thing is acting funky but my main concern is what the heck is going on with my system? Im getting upset since, it was fine and now all of a sudden BAM.

Please does anybody have any ideas on what is wrong here? Thank you to whoever gave the time to read and thank you for the help as well.

Any possibility that you managed to corrupt your Windows installation when you were fooling around with Debian? Did you download your copy of Debian directly from the official .org site? Did you scan the installation files for viruses, trojans or malware before you executed them?

Any tell tale signs in the Windows event logs that might indicate a problem?

I got everything from pendrive site, I installed it directly to my flash drive, made sure of that. Looked at all logs for date specifics and nothing came up. Everything was going accordingly up until the initial reboot to go to the bios to try to boot from USB, and it just never came up. Everything that goes on in scanned automatically. I was attempting to try out the deadpool game before I bought it and couldn't figure out why the crack wouldn't work, and I realized that it kept getting placed in the quarantine lol. So I passed on the cracked version and just bought it.

I get very similar problems with unstable overclocks.

I've had a stable OC at 4.5 for quite some time. No issues, the only thing that was mildly unstable was my sli setup which since has been put back to stock.

Before I assumed it was hardware related, if it were me I'd clear my BIOS, reload default values and install a fresh copy of Windows. Put the OC on hold for now (revert to stock), and a fresh copy of Windows will negate any application or driver related issues.

Other than that it's going to be hit and miss swapping out this or that, searching for an offending application or some undetected infection. No one wants to hear that, but it is apparent that something has gone terribly wrong between when "all was fine" and now "everything is screwed up".

Otherwise you start at square one, which for me is usually an extended run of Memtest86+ overnight and seeing if it passes. If so move on to the next item.

Since you have these strange power issues when trying to shutdown even from the BIOS, you could suspect something as simple as a case power button going bad, or something more complex like a power supply problem.

You could check the power button with a meter, or disconnect the switch and power on / power off the motherboard by using a jumper wire or small screw driver to short the +/- posts on the motherboard's front panel connector.

If you had a spare power supply I'd swap it out and see if the problem persists.

Last but not least, you could re-flash the motherboard BIOS to eliminate the possibility that your BIOS has been corrupted somehow. Heck, I guess it could even be a problem with one of the ancillary devices connected to the motherboard, a bad optical drive, bad hard drive, bad video card, bad USB keyboard or mouse. Unfortunately the list could go on and on.

No optical drive, I've even used the opencase onboard start button, which leads me to rule out the power button. Along with the fact that the case and PSU are both brand new.
