    Default P35C-DSR3 Cycle Reboot Problem

    Janus,

    There seems to be an on going issue with the P35C-DSR3 board. People are now dubbing it the Cycle-Reboot problem. The problem is described as Power up, Fans on, Beep, Reboot in a continous loop never reaching the bios.

    The problem does not seem to be localized to one part of the world either. I have read people in Austrailia, U.S., U.K., and Germany are having the same problem.

    I have read about this problem on this forum - tweaktown.com as well as these forums

    Newegg.com
    Anandtech.com
    Overclockers.net
    OCforums.com
    Tomshardward.com
    xtremesystems.org


    Does Gigabyte have a position on this? It seems like an ongoing problem that nobody has a solution for that ultimately leads to an RMA. Is it a bad batch of boards? Is it a bad bios? Something else? Is it fixable without a RMA?

    Janus,
    I think the community would really like an explaination about the problem. Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm experiencing this exact problem now and have posted about it at the e6750 / GA-p35c-dsr3 thread at the anandtech forums...and I'm about a day away from giving up on Gigabyte forever all-together because of this, it's been a hair pulling experience! I really wanted to love this board! Please give us a solution...and one that doesn't involve RMA'ing the board would be preferred! Can this issue be fixed by the user??

    - Brett

    So that tells ya folks...

    I ended up going with the Abit-IP35Pro Board, has a much better layout anyways and it's the only higher-end P35 board I've seen without the IDE connector stuck in a retarded spot...

    Good luck if you go with P35c-Ds3r model! Sounds awesome on paper and the box is cool, but It's like rolling dice!

    I'm also having the same problem and love to hear if Gigabyte has a solution, or, even a clue as to what is going on. Just do a google search or read a few other forums and you will see this a common problem. My review is on Newegg and the reputation of gigabyte is going to take a hit if this problem is not addressed in some fashion.

    janus,

    Your first link does not work and your 2nd link doesn't work either. It keeps asking for "select product". Why can't you help us on this question? Why are you passing us off to this service? What do you engineers say?

    I'm sorry but this seems like a bigger problem that needs to addressed. I hope you (Gigabyte) are not sweeping this under the rug!

    Clearly this is a huge problem. Please address the issure for us.

    Well mine's not boot cycling. But it is freezing. Up to 3 or 4 times a day. I emailed Janus for the version 3 bios and never got a reply.

    A long time Asus buyer, this is my first and last Giga board.

    Janus actually emailed me the F3 bios last night. He did say would should be using F4 though.
