Thought so. Best of luck with the new board.

Yep, thanks! I'm really surprised at how fast/helpful the responses on this forum are.

Before this thread dies - I'm new to this, is installing a new motherboard just as simple as plugging everything in and booting to the drive I installed Windows on?

Installing a motherboard is very easy. I'm guessing you obviously had your ASUS P8P67 Pro already in your case? Well, installing it is basically the same as removing it.

1. Put the motherboard in the case and onto the standoffs. Once it's on the standoffs screw it in, same way you removed it, just in reverse smile.gif

2. That's really it.

Assuming it'll work with Windows since it's entirely the same motherboard, you should be able to boot right into Windows as you previously did without reformatting.

Don't quote me on that, though. You'll find out when you plug everything in and it boots! tongue.gif

3. Once you have everything installed onto the motherboard.. cables, hardware, etc. Boot up, make sure everything is a go, and then proceed to installing Windows and what not.

4. Once you're in Windows, use the driver disc Asus gives you and install all of the drivers, not including Norton and the other accessories you don't want.

Thanks. No, I actually installed everything myself - just wondering if anything will be different when replacing it (as far as booting up goes). I already installed Windows onto my SSD with the board I'm returning (I only had access to the BIOS the first time I booted & installed Windows), so I'm guessing I just point to the SSD in the BIOS after I "reinstall" the board?

I edited my post since I thought about it for a second and since it's the same motherboard you SHOULDN'T have any issues with booting.

Dunno if you're still here, but what keyboard and mouse do you have?

Try unplugging the mouse.
Also unplug ANY joysticks or gamepads.
If a PS/2 (or even a different) keyboard is available, try that.

Does this help?

So, I exchanged my P8P67 for a new one, and the SAME F*CKING THING HAPPENS!

Falkentyne: Thank, yeah I've tried both a PS/2 and a USB keyboard, as well as disconnecting the mouse, same result.

I've disconnected my 2 drives & the optical, same result.



Rearranged the RAM, same result.

I really have no idea what's going on at this point. At Frys, where I bought the board, they tested the previous one right there and it posted, meaning that it must be something in my setup.

Personally I think it's the RAM just based off of the issue at hand here. Use the memOK button, and if you can POST go into the BIOS and manually set your ram timings to their advertised speeds. You said you had 2000mhz ram, right? Well, set your timings in the BIOS and the voltage, but LEAVE the DRAM Frequency to Auto or 1333 and see if it boots. If it doesn't boot, try setting it to 2000. If it does boot on Auto or 1333, then reboot and set it to 2000 and see if it boots. If they both boot fine, you've hopefully fixed it.

It can't be anything else really, because nothing else can really stop a mobo from POSTing.

Just called customer service. Turns out it's most likely a "conditional short" - in other words, when trying to access the BIOS something in the board is shorting out. Most likely has to do with the standoffs. I'm gonna try covering them up with electrical tape & poking a hole in them, as the tech recommended. I'll let you know how it goes in an hour or so.

Interesting, give that a shot. If that doesn't work, try removing the motherboard from the case and placing it on top of the motherboard box and seeing if it POSTs.
