[SOLVED] P67A-UD3 problem with booting up - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Ok, if the cmos jumper ONLY has 2 pins, then shorting both pins clears the cmos, and leaving it open is normal operation. In this case you can just cover one of the jumper pins with the jumper (aka overhang) which leaves the other one clear. Most boards I used before had 3 pins, and the "first" pin was actually a dummy pin (not required to have the block on, just used for jumper storage so the jumper won't fall off, etc).

The jumper block is probably somewhere in the box.
So if it's a 3 pin setup, 1-2 are normal operation, and 2-3 is the clear. (only 2 and 3 are responsible for clearing). If it's two pin, then removing the jumper or havig it overhang 1 pin is normal operation.

YOu don't have to clear the CMOS to flash, it would just be best if you did. If you don't want to you will be fine, just be sure you load optimized in the BIOS after you flash, then save/apply/reboot and then back to the BIOS to set your SATA/Disk settings and anything else you need to set.

You can clear the CMOS with a jumper from a old CD/DVD drive, or just remove the battery from the board if you are worried. It wont shock you though to short the pins with a screwdriver, just shut off the power supply and then drain the remaining power by pressing the case power on button for a minute. Then short the pins for 10-20 seconds and then turn the power supply back on and do the load optimized hustle and be on your way.

It's all very easy and there is nothing to worry about.

Falk, no Gigabyte boards come with jumpers, they never have?

Nice to see you found your short and fixed it before anything was damaged!

yea the only thing i have seen on a fe GB boards are two pins for CMOS clear on the G1 series, you just short the pins.

Older boards had 3 pins with a jumper on two.

Further more if you want to hard cmos clear you can short the battery holders leads when the battery is out.

Really? All they have is are bare pins, and you have to supply the jumper yourself? D:

I wish I had saved the CMOS jumper when I tossed my P5wdh in the bin...someone couldve probably put it to good use. And there were several jumper blocks on the P5W... :/ oh man do I regret not stripping EVERYTHING off that board....

I stand noticably corrected then, sorry frown.gif

Just that then makes the UD5 an even better value...no one likes sticking screwdrivers (especially flat heads) in places like that (Even with good steady hands...)

LSD, the reason I recommended clearing CMOS after a flash was when I didn't clear it, I found that my PCIE was running at 8x, and would only go to 16x if I went over 100.0 bclk.

When I cleared cmos, that fixed that right up.

well they don't give you a jumper because all you have to do is short the pins with a piece of metal, at least a screw driver is easy to use lol.

Yes, pins on boards without clear CMOS buttons, jumper is 2 cents or easily found on an old IDE drive.

Ya, I know it is good practice to clear CMOS, I wasn't doubting your thoughts on that, just trying to let him know it wasn't a must unless he had issues (I have not ran into any with 2 P67 boards, across probably 20 BIOSes since the F3 beta's).

You are right, good to do to prevent issues, but if he is scared of doing it then he doesn't have to unless he starts having problems. Then he'll need to man up biggrin.gif

Heh, sorry, I didn't notice there were posts on page 3.

And I'm a manly man ;_;

But yeah, so far it looks like it was a shorting issue, which makes sense, inasmuch as I wasn't having the problem before. At some point I will be updating the BIOS, though, since it seems like that's good practice.

Thanks everybody!

EDIT: And right after I post that, I shut down and turn it on again, only to find the issue persists. Okay, updating the BIOS now.

EDIT THE FINAL (???):
After many tears, much vomiting, and unnecessary drama, I finally updated my BIOS. The Alt+F12 thing took me a few tries, but that was okay, because it just meant I had to reboot, which meant I got to test it. And so far, no problems!

Once again, a big thanks to everyone!

Bad news, guys. It happened again.

I think I've narrowed the problem down to about four things:

1.) It's the GPU.
2.) It's the way I have the GPU plugged in.

See my GLORIOUS DIAGRAM: http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/8281/psusetup.jpg

My PSU has two PCI-e connectors for my GPU, albeit, as you can (maybe) see, one of them shoots off from the main cord. My friend managed to get both to go into the GPU fairly comfortably, but maybe it's causing an issue somehow?

3.) My RAM. I noticed in CPU-Z it said my RAM wasn't in dual channel or anything, so I moved them from slots 2 and 4 (didn't want them as close to the CPU) to slots 1 and 3. However, I *think*, though I'm not sure, I encountered this problem *once* before I moved them. Nevertheless, I'll try re-inserting them. Memtest didn't show any errors.

4.) Cables. I've noticed that, every time I adjust my cables, the computer doesn't act up. What I suspect is that they, thanks to GRAVITY and all that nonsense, move a little bit, and some end of one of my unconnected cables is causing a short somewhere (maybe by touching the case, maybe by being next to another cable, etc.). So, I may just have to reattach everything or something.

Any ideas? Alas, I can't get to my desktop at the moment, so I can't just start tinkering right away.

Edit: So something I've noticed is that it always come on perfectly if I flip the switch beforehand (i.e., not the regular power switch to turn it on, but the switch you turn off before unplugging the cable). Anyway, I reset the RAM, moved some cables around, and gonna give it another whirl.

Show us your power supply, retail page, thanks. Just want to be sure you are using the right cables, sounds odd how you say the one graphics cable shoots off the main cable. Just want to be sure you are using the right cables on your graphics card is all.

Show us a pic of the inside of your case, then maybe we can help suggest how to sort out your cable issues. But if you think you have a short somewhere, or inside one fo the cables you really should get the board out of the case and off the motherboard tray, then put it on a wooden table or cardboard box and run it like that for a while and see if you can wiggle the cables one by one from time to time and see if you can find the short.

Cables touching things inside your case should be fine, as long as those cables do not have the plastic coating cut up.

Switches? You should leave your power supply switch on all the time, shutting that off can cause issues due to sometimes it can clear the CMOS or have to reload things everytime you turn it back on.
