    Default Shutdown problem

    Hi I own a 965P-DS3 and recently it refuses to shutdown. The fans are still on but my display and hard drive seems to be down. I've played around with my power management settings, I have also reinstalled windows Vista and reset my cmos, anything you can think of.

    Now, this happened randomly, but I think it may have something to do with a @BIOS update where it failed to update with random errors showing up in the screen. I rebooted the pc and it seemed fine at that point. I even managed to reflash it using q-flash instead. It managed to shutdown for a few weeks after the failure, but now it doesn't. I have to manually turn it off via holding the power button.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Usually shutdown problems are related with hd controllers. Did you installed the last drivers? What OS are you using?
    GA-Z97-D3H Windows Pro 8.1
    i5-4690K + Corsair H90
    Sapphire Radeon R7 240
    16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400MHz PC3 19200
    Corsair CX750M
    Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500 GB

    I'm on Vista at the moment and what latest drivers do I have to install? If it's the ones available at the auto update I'm sure I've installed everything.

    Please post your Full specs, board revision as well. You may need to adjust some things manually in the BIOS, especially if you are using 4GB of ram. Ill help you more once you post more info

    Here is the drivers for the 3.3 Revision of your board, click at the top for other revisions >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - Driver - GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 3.3)

    DO NOT USE QFLASH!!! Here is a BIOS guide I wrote to better help everyone >>>

    Thanks for the reply.

    My specs are:
    965P-DS3 Rev 1.0
    E6300 Core Duo | Overclocked to 2.9 at the moment.
    HD4850 Ati
    PC2-6400 Corsair 1GB x 2
    320GB Seagate
    520W Corsair psu

    If there is anything else thats missing please say so.


    Oh do you mean not to use @Bios?

    I've already used it and it failed on me, but the board continues to work luckily for me.

    Nice to see your board survived @BIOS, Ya I meant do not use it, for sure!

    So what BIOS are you using? Not sure? You can check in the BIOS on the MAIN page hit F9, or with CPU-z In the Mainboard tab. Your BIOS versions is up to F13 now >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 1.0)


    Here is your drivers as well incase you need to update them, if you havent for a while I do suggest it for sure >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - Driver - GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 1.0)

    Then please go into the BIOS, and on the MAIN page hit Control + F1, the screen will flash, this makes all hidden settings available on your board visible to you. Then go in the MIT Section and get your settings you are using and give them to me >>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    Do you want suggested settings for below? If so let me know and I will post you suggested ranges

    These are in a different section of the BIOS "Advanced BIOS Features" and they will need to be set as above for overclocking. At least EIST and C1E anyway need to be disabled

    Hi I've done everything you have said. It was indeed on 42, sorry. Was quite late at night when I checked and I wasn't quite awake.

    The problem still persist and I'm not 100% sure if it's bios problem as I have set everything to default at one point to test, but it still happens.

    Edit: Also, not sure if this will help. In safe mode when I try to shut down, instead of turning off display, hdd and leaving my fans etc. on. The computer freezes on the shutdown screen

    Default Re: Shutdown problem

    You are talking sleep there right? Not shut down, this is a whole different issue if you mean sleep (turn off display, HDD, fans, Ect)

    Please post me back your exact settings so I can better know what all we are talking about here

    And if you do mean sleep as shutdown, I would advise against that in vista, S3 sleep anyway. There has long been issues with P35/45 and S3 sleep that have been fixed with BIOS updates but I do not think they are working on 965P BIOS's any longer. At least not with any priority. So it may have never been addressed or fixed for 965P


    If you do mean shut down as in OFF, and S3 sleep both do this then yes a clean install would help with Shutting down, not with S3 sleep. If you do want to keep using sleep only S1 would be advised

    As you can see here in google it has been a huge issue with Gigabyte boards >>>
    965P-DS3 S3 sleep issue vista - Google Search

    Just recently fixed in P45 for sure though, P35 some months ago. But I have never heard about a 965P fix
