Asus P8P67 Pro issue

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
After reading some posts here it appears that I have a similar issue as many others with this board, but I haven't found anyone with my exact issue.

I am only able to boot to the OS when I go into the BIOS settings and manually boot to a drive. I am only able to get into the BIOS by either clearing the CMOS or by pressing and holding the MEMOK button until it boots to the BIOS.

If I boot to the OS from the BIOS, it works. I was able to install Win 7 on an SSD this way, and I am using the PC now to type this. If I try and restart or do a shutdown and manually power on, I will not be able to load to the OS unless I use 1 of the 2 methods I describe above.

If I use the MEMOK to get to the BIOS, I get a message saying I have used MEMOK to boot and that I need to save settings in the BIOS. It will have changed a few of the OC settings, specifically the BCLK/PEG (?) to 103 and a TURBO ALL CORES. If I save and reset, the system will then go back to BIOS with the message Overclock has failed.

I assume it is the memory as I did not purchase memory from the QVL, Mushkin Silverline 1333 2x4GB. I have an RMA for the memory and I have already purchased some Corsair 1666 memory that was on the QVL. If it is the memory, then I can live with that becaues it was my mistake not buying from their QVL, but I was curious if anyone had seen and resolved an issue like this.

I have tried setting the voltage from 1.55 to 1.6, it defaults to 1.5. I have removed all SATA devices other than the SSD, disabling the unused SATA controller (Marvell). I have reset the CMOS over 20 times, and removed the CMOS battery. I have also flashed to 1053.

Anyone have any ideas? I will try the Corsair memory and if that fails I will RMA the motherboard, as it appears there are multiple issues with booting with this motherboard. I have left my number with Asus tech support, but I suspect they won't even attempt a solution without approved memory.

Thanks for you assistance.

Here is what is in the system.

Which slots did you put your ram in? A2 and B2, which are the blue ones, are the recommended slots.

QVL is usually nonsense. Rarely would you encounter a problem buying non QVL memory, but I guess it might be a slim possibility.

Anyway, try the RAM in the other two slots. Make sure the RAM timings and frequency are set properly, as well as the voltage on the sticks. If there is a bios update available, update it with one stick of RAM in. Lastly, increase the voltage of your VCCIO a little, as this is the CPU's memory controller voltage. There is no need to mess with the VCCSA voltage though.

I had followed what the manual said and had the memory in the Blue slots, a2 b2. I put them in the Brown with the same issue. I have bumped the VCCIO as well, and I am at the newest rev of the BIOS.

What kills me is that I can load the OS by going through the BIOS, but it won't get there on its on.

I done some more research and I see mention of setting the memory to XMP. Is this for 1600 RAM only?

I am convinced this is a RAM issue because MEMOK will take me to BIOS from cold and because I can load the OS and have it work flawlessly. I have manually set the frequency to 1333MHz and the first timing to 9 9 9 24 per manufacturers recommendation. Do I need to manually set the second and third timings?

Just throwing this out there, but are both the TPU & EPU switches set to 'disable'? I had read somewhere else that someone had a board they either accidently bumped the TPU on (or it came with it already switched on?) and it kept trying to automatically OC the system and that paired with a RAM issue made it so he could only boot once going into BIOS first. I can't find the link right now (it was on another forum and I don't remember which) but if I do, I'll update you here.

Interesting. If you could find that link that would be awesome. I will try and find it and post for others as well if I do.

I initially had TPU and EPU off. I have subsequently enabled TPU for no other reason than it wasn't working with it off. I will try with EPU enabled as well just to be consistent.

Pulled the CMOS battery and then reset for about 10 minutes. Same results.

Changed TPU EPU, same results.

I flashed the BIOS with ver 1253 and I got excited for a moment because I was actually able to get it to cycle through a restart without shutting down. It loaded into the Select F1 screen for initial BIOS config, I kept default, hit Save and Reset.....and the same exact issue persists.

Only way to get to the OS is to use the Boot Menu from the BIOS. Only way to get to BIOS is CMOS clear or MEMOK.

Manually set frequency, voltage, and timings for RAM with no success, shutodown on restarts from windows without posting, and on cold boot a warning about Overclock failed and F1 to enter BIOS.

I had such high hopes too.

I guess I will try moving the SATA port the SDD uses around.

I don't really understand the ISSUE here.

You described what you think is the problem... but...

OK you can't boot into the OS, but could you please describe what happens when you try to boot? Any lights turning on? What shows up in the screen?

From cold boot any other time than 1st cold boot after CMOS reset, MEMOK button press, or cold boot to Overclock Failed because I have manually set DRAM voltage in a previous boot, the system starts to power on, I see the DRAM LED light up and goes off, the VGA LED lights up and goes off, and then the CPU LED light up, then the system powers off. The Onboard LED stays green. I can press power again and it will repeat. It does not attempt to power on by itself or "double boot".

I can force it to power to the BIOS by the 3 methods above. From the BIOS I can use the boot menu to go to the OS.

I can leave the Overclock Fail in place and manually reboot by going to the OS, but I can not get it to even start to POST without doing 1 of those 3 things. It will just power down from between 5 and 10 seconds.
