P67A-UD4-B3 got strange cold boot infinite loop

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi. I got cold boot, but not from the sleep function.
I tried to overclock my PC, raised Vcore up to 1.34V and used 46x104.6 for CPU.
Everything worked fine. I passed 1 hour OCCT test.
But when I restarted my computer, bios said overclocking failed and rolled back to 45x100, then it auto restarted again and rolled back to 35x100, after that it restarted for the 3rd time and caught a loop.
1.) 3 second power-up without any VGA output. 2 second power down.
2.) 5-7 power up, bios logo appears, keyboard blinks. 2 second power down.
and again from 1.)

I tried to clear cmos, but it does not help, as well as the rest of the methods to awaken the PC from sleep cold boots (like using only 1 memory bank, removing battery, plugging-off for 5-10 mins).

Anyone have any thoughts, what to do, except going to the service center?

Have you updated the bios yet? I think f3d is still the one to get.
Pulling the battery for a few minutes (psu off or unplugged) has done the trick for me every time I got stuck in the boot loop.

Well, when you clear the CMOS, the board naturally power cycles for a few seconds. So don't think that it's "still" doing the same issue as before you cleared it. I have the board. Whenever I clear the CMOS on mine, it will power cycle on and off for a few seconds. You're probably thinking the normal power cycling is "still" a continuance of your board "failing" to boot from your unstable OC. It's not. Just clear the CMOS, and wait up to 2 minutes if necessary. It will correct itself.

You aren't clearing cmos correctly.
And you don't need to pull battery.

First, turn off the computer
Second, unplug the PSU.
Third, press the power button on the case to discharge the +5vsb.
Fourth, wait 60 seconds.
Fifth: short the clear cmos jumper with a HDD jumper or a flat screwdriver for 30 seconds.
Sixth: replug everything back in
Seventh: Profit.

Also, unplug any external HDD's, gamepads, joysticks, firewire or any weird devices you have plugged in, after you do the clear cmos.

to Falkentyne:
Tried exactly as you said, the result is still the same.
BTW, I think clear cmos works ok, cause yesterday I had full screen logo off, and after I shorted clear_cmos with an hdd jumper, it appeared again. but reboot loop is still here.

to Diabolical:
yeah I tried to wait to mb correct itself, so after 20 minutes it's still the same loop frown.gif

to FtW:
Unfortunately, I didn't know that there are some unofficial version of bios for MBs, so I have the latest release I could find on the site - F3.

Pull the battery short the cmos pins with a jumper and leave it over night I have seen plenty of boards that wont clear the cmos in the 30 seconds people think it takes to clear them

Went to the service center. They tried for an hour to resurrect my MB for about an hour without any success. So I just got my money back.
P.S. Thx for answers.

Hmm, sorry about that. What board did you get?

Sounds like your BIOS got corrupted. There IS a way to force the board to boot to the backup BIOS by shorting two pins on the primary bios...forgot which; I mentioned it in a previous thread somewhere though.

Yeah I thought that bios somehow could broke. But the problem is: it came to this state due to auto roll backs to "stable" OC parameters. So even if I managed somehow to clear it, it would be necessary to short pins on the MB every time OC fail. 10-15 times, until I find stable parameters.
No, thanks.

I'm waiting until Wednesday until my local shop will get resupply. I think I'll get asrock extreme6. if they won't have any then msi gd80.
