Gigabyte P67A-UD7 Error

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm having a problem with my Gigabyte P67A-UD7. I just assembled it (the build is in my signature) and upon boot, it goes in a continuous rebooting cycle (the fans spin for less time each time) and the post code is "C1".

Apparently it's a memory problem, but I just want to know if there's anything I can do short of replacing the ram that has any kind of hope for fixing it.

you might have your ram in the wrong slots. if you have 2 physical ram sticks put it in the first and third slot.

This happened to me when i had an unstable overclock. Is everything in factory settings? Clear the cmos and you should boot properly

Everything is stock, I have 4 physical sticks of ram (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231429), I have not gotten a successful boot ever. I have tried resetting the CMOS but it did not help.

did you unplug your psu and clear the cmos manually? Don't push the cmos button... aside from the clear cmos button there should be a jumper that you have to manual use to get the cmos to clear. Use that once the power supply is unplugged and turned off.

If that doesn't work. Try reseating everything specifically focus on the cpu and ram. Get back with an update... hopefully this fixes it. That's the only thing i can think of doing. If not it seems that one of your components is faulty and i bet it's probably either the memory or the motherboard itself. Hopefully not

^This.

I'd bet on a bad RAM stick somewhere.

Damn, I give up. All of them give me FF or C1.

I think I might scrap this build and build another one from scratch...

The board is probably DOA. RMA it.

Remove the CPU, though, and double check for any bent pins. It's VERY easy to bend a pin by not putting the cpu in properly on a 1155--a LOT easier than you think it is. Socket 775 cpu's were much more brainless to insert correctly. The "fit in" notch that tells you that the 1155 CPU is inserted properly is a LOT less intuitive than the one for socket 775. You have to be VERY careful that the CPU is actually fully recessed and properly and fully in the slot before closing that lever.

BTW, you did insert the CPU power 8 pin plug, didn't you?

Yes, I did. This isn't my first build...

Also, regarding bent pins, I was very careful during the insertion, making sure everything lined up and it fit just right, so I don't think that's it. If it could help anyone figure out what's the problem, the keyboard (plugged into the PS/2 slot) lights up, the mouse doesn't, and all the fans start spinning, but the mobo is still giving me an FF post error. When it posts the FF error, all the motherboard lights turn off excep the blue power button and a random green light on the board. I guess I'll just return every part and build sub 2k LGA 1366 build, skip Sandy Bridge, and treat myself to a Christmas present 4k Ivy Bridge build.

What a shame... I had such high hopes for this build.
