    Default GA-P35C-DS3R Reboot Problem

    Hi guys, I hope someone can help me here. I've had a GA-P35C-DS3R 1.1 for a few months now and it keeps rebooting when i switch it off and all bios settings are reset. This mainly happens when I switch the computer off at night. This has happened with bios F10, F11b, F11 and F12b I've looked at many threads on this and suggests its a memory problem. But i've used 4x1GB Patriot memory 800mhz 4-4-12 and 2x2Gb A-Data Vitesta 800Mhz 5-5-5 15 and still can't get it to stop rebooting.

    If I overclock the oveclock will stay for around two reboots then the reboot cycle happens again. I have an E8400 CPU.

    Please could someone help me put the correct settings into my bios as this is driving me insane. Many thanks

    From what I've read this is a problem with rev 1.1 you will need to send it back and get an updated module. I got the same board as you but i got the rev 2.0. And it seems to be a problem with this one too. I also experience bootup problems when computer have been shutdown during the night, it wont boot and resets itself and I have to load my settings again. On Gigabytes site GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35C-DS3R (rev. 2.0) you can see that there's an rev 2.1 this makes me think I will have to get my board replaced as well :(

    I'm waiting to hear back from Gigabyte, it's been 8 days sens I send them an email (Email ID is 675405)

    PS: I'm not sure if you take this as an RMA post? If so this is NOT what I mean :)

    It's most likely a memory setting that is just on the edge of being stable, which shows up moreso when the PC is cold booted. i doubt there is a problem with the board.

    For starters, change these settings in the MIT section of the bios:-

    1) Set tRFC (Refresh to ACT Delay) = 54 - 62 (try anything between those values)
    2) Performance Enhance = Standard
    3) Set main memory timings to 5-5-5-18

    Board Revision 2.1 is the forerunner to the GA-EP35C-DS3R, it just has the power saving feature added - nothing else.

    It's the last of the GA-P35C-DS3R Revisions that don't have the new Energy saving feature.

    Yeap, rev 2.1 is the same as EP models

    @ m1k3

    Your issue is likely voltages or timings and not really the board (Although it could be) if you want some help with your settings please post me a link to the ram you are using now and tell me how much of it you have and fill out this with your settings you are trying and I will advise >>>

    As you can see most of my options are pretty much on AUTO as im not trying to

    Well Auto is not usually best, overclocking or not. Hey, what amount of ram are you using now just to be sure? You linked 1GB sticks but you mention 2x2 A-data above. So I really cannot advise until I am sure. If you want, please also link to the page you bought the ram from

    See if these changes help any (Will edit once I am sure about your ram configuration) >>>
