    Default EX58-UD5 Shutdown & Booting issue

    Whenever I do a shutdown on my EX58 board, I'm having trouble getting it to start up again.

    Usually whenever I connect power to the board, the motherboard's Power-On button and CMOS reset switch stay lit up. However, whenever I shutdown from within windows, or restart from within BIOS, all of the lights go out, and I have to unplug the power supply for about 30 seconds before I can get the board to boot up. Doing a simple restart does not cause the same issue.

    Maybe I should also mention that during startup, it appears to attempt to post twice. The lights on the board go out for a second then it starts again.

    whats your system specs.

    Can you update your bios to F4k as well.

    Normaly this happens because it doesnt like the memory settings and it reboots to a bios safe mode.

    I updated the BIOS last night. Now it has a disk read error and will not boot into windows. It cannot see the drive from Vista installer. I installed in the AHCI mode in the blue SATA ports, & I understand there were some issues with this board in that mode. Even moving the connector to the white ports still gives the error.

    I also left the board in "ready" last night, where the power switch is lit, but this morning it was off again. I've got a feeling it's a bad board.

    @ slash777. Didn't work for me.

    I did change the voltage to 1.6 and the timings to 8-8-8 as it says on the sticker on the memory. The auto settings were at 6-6-6. That's keeping the board a bit more stable, but now I've got the issue with the hard drive.

    Since the bios update, the hard drive partition table appears to be corrupt under both AHCI & IDE.

    Each color requires a different AHCI Driver, and sine you flashed and loaded optimized defaults you must again go set your same settings on the integrated peripherals BIOS page as you had it before.

    If you cant figure that all out again, you can simply set one controller to ACHI (Be sure you pick the correct one per the port you put your disk on) and install your OS again with the proper driver

    Lee Kay's suggestion on another EX58-UD5 user with OCZ memory, fixed my stability issue (mostly).

    Make sure your ram does not exceed 1333mhz then do the following.

    in the bios sellect MIT menu.
    CPU Features,
    Disable CPU Enhanced halt C1e
    Disable C3/C6/C7 State Support
    Disable Cpu EIST function.

    save then exit.

    I think the bios has the profiles setup wrong.
    I say mostly because I have had one shutdown issue since Lee Kay's fix, but it was a reboot after I installed a series of Windows updates and a few hardware drivers.

    I do think there's still some compatibility issues with the memory (OCZ3X1333LV6GK) & the power management for the CPU. The memory's auto setting was 6-6-6 @ 1.5V, but OCZ lists these settings:
    Standard
    1333MHz 7-7-7-20 1.5V
    XMP Profile 1:
    1333MHz 8-8-8-20 1.6V
    XMP Profile 2:
    1333MHz 7-7-7-20 1.6V

    Altering the timing & the voltage to the first XMP profile seemed to help, and I'm betting I need to work on some of the extended settings too.

    My original hard drive is completely shot since the bios upgrade. The Sata driver recognizes it, but only the 32mb buffer?! I bought a new one of the same model, dropped it in, and it reinstalled Vista. I'm just going to send that drive back. I have no idea how to salvage it.

    I hope there are no more bugs with the AHCI to be fixed. I wanted to keep that setting so I could eventually dual boot this rig as a hackintosh.
