Fail to post, restarts over and over

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Everything was working fine, shut the computer off earlier. Went to turn it on this afternoon and everything comes on but it doesnt post, runs for 10-15 seconds, then shuts off, then restarts on its on in 2-5 seconds. Just keeps doing this...I tried to reset cmos by removing battery and doing the jumper method and neither have helped!

strip out anything and everything that isnt needed. Go to integrated graphics if possible (dunno if your proc has integrated), remove all but one stick of ram, disconnect all drives, etc etc etc, making sure to test each time you remove a part. When it does start successfully after the removal of a part, then you know what to replace. Should that fail though, pop the processor out and examine the contacts on it and the pins in the socket for damage. 3.4ghz shouldnt call for any significant amount of power, so its highly unlikely, but you will never know. If everything looks good, try cycling through the ram sticks and ram slots and try to find something that works. If all of this has failed, then its likely your board just took a shiat on you.

Sorry if my post seems to be rambling a bit, i got a whanging headache and am tired. Good luck.

Thats what my did also, and after hours of trying once I finally got it to post I'd get a checksum error.

RMA.

Weird

I even bought different ram for my UD4, and my problem sounded exactly like yours.

Sorry for the misinformation.

it's a problem that i have been having... it's not the motherboard per se... it got fixed as soon as i flashed my bios to f3d (the beta version of f3)...

it could also be a bad cmos battery

EDIT: i saw it got fixed... mine also did that... only for it to reoccur after i shut it down and didn't use it for a while.. hopefully yours doesn't do this

hmm, im running bios f2. Its weird...ive been messing with overclocking, most of the time if it crashes (still testing for stability) it will boot back into bios, but the times were it will just restart over and over and not get to bios and clearing cmos doesnt work i have to take out 1 stick of ram, it will then post, put the other stick in and all is well. Not sure on why it does this.

yes as i mentioned before... if you had the same problem as me... it will be fine for a few days and after shutting it down, one day it will just refuse to boot and go into a loop.

flash it to f3d, that should fix things.. it did for me
