    Default Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Problem during bootup

    Hello all,

    I couldn't find a Gigabyte forum and i think this is the closest i can post on. Here it goes.

    I just got this problem this morning. It was fine last night. I tried to boot up the computer and i heard a weird mechanical noise on the board. Then i heard 1 beep sound during the Gigabyte's splash page, after that it either reboots itself or shuts down completely. I couldn't even enter the bios because the keyboard wasn't registered. What do you think the problem is? I don't know how to test which parts are causing the problem. Can someone guide me to the right direction to solve this problem? Thank you.

    If you can. Take everything out of your case and set it up on a wooden table with limited components. Processor, Video card, One stick of RAM and PSU. If that does not work, try the other stick of RAM.

    You can also try clearing your CMOS. Follow LSD's guide..

    Hope this helps.

    Did you remember to plug in the 2x4 12V connector from your PSU?

    I finally found out the problem. The push pins on one side of my Xigmatek heatsink came off. I had to re-seat the heatsink onto the board and chip. I can boot up properly, but when i ran core temp the temp shot up. It says 55oC idle and 90oC while running apps. I really don't think its really 90oC. Maybe the temp censor is not reading the temps correctly? Any insights?

    Hi,
    Once the heat sink comes loose you should clean off the thermal compound an reapply.
    What are the temps in the BIOS?

    The push pins suck you really have to push hard to get them right. If its not fully seated then yes you are prob seeing those temps.

    Just pay $9 and get the 17751 retention bracket from newegg.com(as long as you have the 1283 heatsink) and you'll have more piece on mind and better temps
