    Default z77-ud3h possibly dead

    just replaced my processor to a 3770k and now i cannot boot, power button on mobo is kit up when i press it the lights and fans all flah/spin momentarily. been doing extensive troubleshooting and have taken pc apart like 10 times now. thinking its either a Doa cpu or a dead mobo. ive already tried replacing psu,

    before i try to replace my Mobo, should i be able to get a display on the diagnostic lcd display on the motherboard if i attempt to boot up without a processor? i ask because i get codes if i boot up wihtout ram or nit enough power,(aWith a working processor)

    Welcome to the forum,

    Please post your specs it will help us to help you.

    Check your CPU pins and look if some are bended.
    Reseat you CPU
    Be sure that all power sources for the motherboard are in place (the big ATX plug, the one near the CPU and the auxiliary sata power plug)
    Recheck if the case wires to the mobo (reset, on switches) are at the right places and plugged correctly.
    Check SATA Cable
    Remove discrete video card
    Plug your monitor on the onboard graphics of the mobo.
    Put only one memory stick first.
    With PSU power off, cord off, reset CMOS.
    PSU power ON 30seconds before booting then boot
    Load optimized settings in the BIOS (F7) and save settings(F10)

    And Yes ..when you boot you should have as last code "A0"
    Please post your codes

    If it boots OK...add the other components one at a time

    If you still has a no go....boot on the secondary BIOS. The switch for booting from secondary BIOS is a bit left of your LED code display.

    Hope it helps

    Nothing will work without a processor installed, everything is dependent on it. If you get a POST code of 00, that means a bad processor or sometimes other problems.

    Be sure to clear the BIOS/CMOS, and even remove the board's battery if a standard BIOS clear is not enough. A defective CPU is very rare.

    Sorry for late reply.

    Specs:
    mobo: z77 ud3h
    cpu: 3770k, previously 3570k
    gpu: Nvidia 550 TI
    RAM: team elite ddr 2x2gb 1333mhz
    psu: BFG Tech 550w

    I've also tried using known good RAM and PSU with no change, I've got enough parts for 2 computers, minus another motherboard and just for good measure i've tried every combination possible with these parts.

    Anyway,
    In the past week, since I was gone for the week, I RMA'd my processor, new processor doesn't change anything. I know I've reset the cmos before, and I've tried using the backup BIOS instead of the main, but I'll do it again for science.

    I did find out that with just my motherboard and nothing plugged into it, not even ram or a cpu(just the cpu power cable, and the main power cable) that it does the exact same thing as what it does when I'm trying to get it to boot with stuff plugged in, makes me feel like the issue occurs somewhere in the motherboard before the cpu gets into the equation. It just starts to power up for a couple seconds and then stops, then it retries.

    Also I checked my cpu pins, just cuz. they are fine.

    With this motherboard, there is a code for everything, so with ample power, and a CPU I should get a code, but I don't. At this point, unless anyone has any last suggestions I'm contacting gigabyte.


    edit: reset cmos again no change.

    i have the same mobo and one day died on me, tried everything, no luck

    someone told me to clear cmos by short, remove battery and touch pins with a screwdrier or something, did this several times, also put battery upside down

    after that it revived like the phoenix, never happened again

    on the other hand had usb crap via ports issues forever
