ASUS P8P67 PRO Cold boot issues - Page 8

post #71 of 79
Hey for what its worth my computer stopped doing the double post.
Here's my method to mayhem:
1. I updated to the latest non beta bios from ASUS. Cleared/reset the CMOS.
2. On the main screen in the BIOS I set the auto OC to the middle one.
3. I went into advanced and enabled PCI-E power up.
Now this next step was something I tried becuase when multi posting i was getting an overclock failed message.
4. I then went to the OC menu in advanced and set it from manual to auto. This is what seemed to do the trick.
I figure there must be a problem with RAM compatability being it usually seems to be the number one cause of OC failures for me. I planned to overclock but right now I am just happy being able to boot my computer. Now I just need to back all my **** up and do a fresh install of Windows.

im trying to figure out what this whole issue is...does anyone have a video of what exactly happens with the cold boot issue?

-Basically what happens is..:

>Use the PC normally [OC'ed or not]
>After a few hours of use, user turns off PC trough Windows.
>Hours/minutes later the user turns on the PC.
>The PC turns on but shuts down right away, making the fans spin a little.
>User tries to turn on the PC again, and nothing happens.
>CMOS has to be cleared in order to get the PC to boot again.


Anyways guys,

Is anybody still having issues? when I first had this was right after i update to bios 1503 and boy did it pissed me off. This mb is great and all but dang it I hate having such a stupid problem.

So far I had MSI p67-GD55 but had to return it due to known voltage unstability issues, now I got this board and its giving this problem. Im going to return my asus board and get Asrock. I like asus but I just dont want to wait for a fix to a stupid problem.

PS
I read down at the asus forums that by disabling PPL overvoltage remedies the problem.

had this happen to my gigabyte board. It got fixed by first clearing the cmos THEN flashing to the newest beta bios. Now i can turn it on and it will turn back on no problem no matter what.

EDIT: It's not a hardware problem, it's just a bios bug that can get fixed as long as you do what i mentioned (most probably... worked for all my fellow gigabyte users that had the same issue)

btw: cpu pll overvoltage is needed to be enabled for overclocks 4.8+

Man I guess a lot of people a are having mass problems since these are this are first gen boards. Good to know you got yours fixed, I think I just got mine fixed too...

So guys listen to this:

The board will not fire right after after you shut it down, lets say you BSOD during a GFX over clock and have to turn your PC off. Well normally you would get that cold boot problem right after you turn it on. I noticed that if you give the board a couple of minutes [to charge?] it will turn on. This is how I do it:

I dont know if you guys get the same, but when I use the integrated sound card I can hear the electricity flowing trough the mb. like, I have the pc unplugged for a a good while then plug it back on. My speakers will make a *wooooOOOOOSH* static sound and stop. same when I unplug the PC right after i used it and i keep pressing the power button, until I hear a static-ish Beep trough my speakers, meaning my mb was drained of electricity.


-Turn off PC
-Unplug it
-Keep tapping the power switch for 20 secs [or until I hear the weird beep noise]. Im pretty sure this drains all the power.
-plug back on
-wait 30 secs [or until I hear the wooooOOSH sound]
-turn it on and voila.

*This is while using the BIOS setting some one posted on this thread*

We'll see if Asus manages a software/bios fix, I have a hard time believing it's only a bios bug since they've been unable to get it working for everyone. My guess is that they've got some QC problems and some of the boards are failing to maintain a minimum voltage while in sleep mode. Anytime the hardware works when it's been turned off for a short period of time, yet runs into serious problems when sitting for longer periods of time, that smacks of a physical problem.


Asus has pulled their PR guy from Hard-forum and won't answer questions on their own forum or direct questions through support, so I have a hard time believing something's not up.

Yeah I noticed that too. The first excuse was he had some thingamagig in Taiwan or something, and he apologizes and says updates will be coming again. Then he vanishes again...permanently?

So it seems I was right about Asus...

Anyway, there probably is a hardware fault with the asus boards. I know that there were hardware issues (NOT just bios, but hardware) with the gigabyte boards. And Gigabyte did more than just make a B3 stepping--they actually made changes on the PCB or VRM's. There's proof: B2 stepping of UD5-all bios versions, LLC1 overvolts about as much as LLC2 does on the UD7. LLC2 is unuusable (no post on early b2 bioses, +.15v overvolt+crash/reboot on later bioses).

When the B3 board appeared, LLC1 and LLC2 worked like they were supposed to.

Now here's the thing:
If you crossflash with the modded flasher, with a B3 bios, LLC1 still overvolts.
Sounds like it's not a bios issue but hardware that was actually changed/fixed with the B3 rollout?

Looks like Asus has similar issues, but did not fix them with B3....

Just thought I'd add some input for future lurkers looking for a fix to the OP's problem and the other solutions aren't working for them.

I had the same issue, but it was caused by disabling spread spectrum.
Re-enabling spread spectrum fixed this.

I'm sorry for the necro-posting in advance, but I just wanted to confirm this. I've been having cold boot issues (i.e. double boot then freeze at windows) since I built my PC, even with other fixes suggested here. However , switching the spread spectrum from auto to enabled solved my problem.

EDIT: Can someone explain to me what the spread spectrum actually is?
