    Exclamation Solution To The Common Reseting Loop???

    Ok after reading many forums on this subject i still have to find one that gives a solution.
    Let me give you some background.
    I originialy had GA-EP35C-DS3R With
    E8400 intel
    Corsair CM2X2048-6400C5 2gb 1.8v Memory - x2 but only used 1 at a time.
    Pny 9600gt OC Graphics Card

    And got the reset loop, No beeps no post.
    Originaly thought it was cpu so sent that back, they tested it and sent it back to me as it was fine.
    Took Motherboard back as i then though it was that, 2nd exact board done exactly the same reseting loop.
    Now while all this was going on i ofcourse tested the system in another chassis, out the chassis, 2 differant PSU, Memory In Differant Slots, No Memory, No Graphics Card,Cleared Cmos.....but it still reset.
    So after some more reading i decided it was bios as it didnt support my processor until F3 (might have been an earlier version)
    Took board back and got my money.
    Decided to go for the GA-Ep45C-DS3R as it supported my Processor from bios F1 (launch)
    But ofcourse as you can probly guess by me writing this post its still reseting loop pre post (although it does stay on for a few seconds longer)
    So im about ready to kill myself at this moment
    A Couple of things i will add as they might help.
    1.All Phase light are on (does this mean processor is working or overloading?)
    2.If i dont plug in the 4/8pin 12v connector it does not reset.
    Dont think i have missed anything but i will add later if anyone asks.
    PLEASE HELP

    After reading your post twice didn't found any comment about your PS, so please let us know what power supply are you using in your rig. That video card needs almost 26A on the 12V rail, it's quite hungry.

    My New PSU is a Coolermaster eXtreme Power Duo 650w
    My Old PSU is A 500w Hiper

    The Graphics card has a 6pin in the back, did you say it also pulls power from the 12v connection? and would that cause it to fail pre post?

    Yes, that plug MUST be connected to your PSU. That is the only way to power up your video card since the PCIe slot don't have that capacity.

    yup everything is plugged in correctly, as i have said also it still restarts without any graphics plugged in anyway (so no graphics card within a foot of the pc ).
    I have just tested my old pc without a graphics card and it bleeps at me with distaste, the only time my new setup bleeps at me is if i take the memory out.

    Hello,

    In my case it turned out to be RAM. I have an X48T-DQ6 and 2 X 2GB CAS7 PC3-10666 1.8v RAM.

    My board would go into the re-start loop with both DIMM's installed every time and would POST one out of four tries with one CAS7 1.8v DIMM installed.

    The board defaults to 1.5v. I believe it depends on the SPD programming as to whether the RAM will POST at 1.5v or not.

    I proved this, at least in my case, by purchasing one 1GB CAS9 1.5v value DIMM.

    My board would POST every time with the single 1.5v DIMM. I then could enter setup, change the RAM settings to my CAS7 RAM specs, save and exit, power off before restart and install the CAS7 DIMM's.

    My board would start every time after the settings had been changed to the CAS7 1.8v RAM specs.

    I have since purchased a different brand of CAS7 RAM that will POST at my board 1.5v default.

    All phase LED's mean it is working, do you have a case speaker connected? I do think your issue stems from your ram choice for sure

    Yup i have kind of broken it down to the fact its either graphics card or memory.
    But as my last system was AGP and ddr1 i have nothing to test it with :(
    I have ordered an elcheapo graphics card off ebay to test that, now im just looking for some cheap ram.
    Thanks for the help guys and ill update when i have more info.

    ok finally got it past post :D it was def memory.
    I was a bit worried to start with as i had brought a cheap ddr2 1gb unit before MDDI post, and it was the same Voltage as my corsair ram so didnt think it was going to work. But it did and the only differance i can really tell is the fact that its smaller and slower.
    BUT
    i kind of have a new problem now......
    Blue screen crashes within a minute or so of windows starting. (even if im trying to clean install)
    Dont have time to see what its saying and have watched it several times.
    I can only presume its still memory, but im not sure so any help would be great.
    Have updated bios to f4 and everything is as above apart from the ram.
    The only info i can give you there is its a
    1GB DDR2-667 PC2-5300 667MHz NON-ECC Memory RAM
    Cheers guys
