GA-990FXA-UD3, bios issues

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just built a computer a month ago and everything was working fine. I turned it on today and it took 30 seconds on a black screen, after that I get a screen that says "uefi dual bios" and a mouse pointer pops up, then it resets. It repeats this over and over again. Ive tried getting into bios but I'm not even seeing bios boot up screen and the normal keys to access aren't working . Ive removed all hardware aside from video card but I'm still not getting anywhere. Ive also pulled the battery and reset bios but it doesn't make a difference. Does anyone know anything about what could cause this. Im about 15 days past returning it to microcenter frown.gif. Im at
wits end because it seems I cant get it to do anything frown.gif.




The equipment I have

Ga-990FXA-UD3 motherboard
16 gigs of radeon ram
AMD FX 8-core processor , black edition
XFX R7870
200 gig solid dive
Windows 7 64bit

It was working fine the last time I had it on. I was thinking maybe a windows update caused it but is that possible?

Geez. Not even bothering to get to know us before you start asking for help eh?wink.gif Something is up with Windows. Grab a repair DVD or USB and run a repair from there. You can also run a restore and go back to before the update.

sounds to me like somehow bios got corrupted. since the setup keys for bios arent showing or anything if it got past that then i'd
say it was possibly a windows problem. but just for testing purposes did you reseat all the memory make sure the cpu isn't getting to hot as the fx chips run very hot so you might wanna check and make sure the cpu cooler is mounted properly too could be the tim isnt right.

if all that fails it could be one of the components are bad.

No beans, it looks like it might do something but still ends up going to a blank uefi bios screen which makes computer reset 3 seconds "endless cycle" frown.gif

Sound like a bad bios. RMA or see if there is a USB flash back

I just got it 2 months ago frown.gif. The only thing I can think of is the main bios is corrupted or damaged and the 2nd bios cant overwrite it. The dvd drive spins up like somethings going to happen but it always ends up on that same screen followed by a reset frown.gif. It says to hit F12 but that doe nothing. I really hate RMA's , they seem to take forever and a day. I also don't like that they have no tech support on weekends. I mean really, in this day in age can company's really afford not to run 7 days a week?

have u tried using the secondary bios...i have the same MOBO and i had to recover using the back up bios once before and it fixed it. there is a little jumper on the board that lets u select which bios to use and u can load up the backup and restore the normal one

have you updated the bios when you got it? it sounds like the bios is bad or a corrupt file in the bios. i have the same mobo rev.3.0 and i havent had any problems with the bios on my board. good luck with your motherboard issues. biggrin.gifthumb.gif

From what the book says the second bios is automatic, I see the 2nd bios screen pop up but then it resets.
