    Default P35-DS4 Boot Problem

    Recently bought a P35-DS4, however after installing it I now have a problem. When i boot the computer it starts fine, however it stops at the Gigabyte boot logo and doesnt move from this point. I cannot access the BIOS or any other boot feature.

    Spec.
    E6600
    8gbhz OCZ-6400 800mhz
    ATI 4870
    Cooler Master 520

    The keyboard is on as it is lit up however i can not get to bios.

    Have you tried to boot with only one of your memory Sticks in? Start there and see if it will post. It is possible you need to boot with one stick and go into the bios and change a ram settings possible up the volts a tiny bit to have all 8 gb work. I take it you have 4x2gb Dimms? Does that OCZ ram run at 2.1v or something cause standard is 1.8v so you may need to increase the volts up to 2.1v. If that doesnt work try each stick individually. It is possible to get a bad stick.

    Thumbs down Re: P35-DS4 Boot Problem

    Thanks for the reply, I tried just using on stick of ram closest to the CPU. However now my computer is struck in a constnt reboot loop. It starts up then a few seconds later reboots.

    I tried removing the CMOS and leaving it for a while then pressing Insert on the startup but this did not work, any ideas?

    Does it do this with any 1 stick of ram? Try taking everything off, HDD DVD just have 1 stick of ram, Graphics card and cpu plugged in and see what happens. Also you can try another ram slot on the MB if you like. try a different stick of ram.

    Even possibly reseat your CPU? Are you using an 8pin CPU power plug or 4? make sure you have it pluged in and secure. Check all cables.

    I have resat the the cpu and tried a different cpu as well. I use a 4 pin to power the cpu and it is secure, ive checked all cables and resat the whole mobo. Ive tried 3 types of ram and different sticks in different slots. I only have a gfx card in the expansion slots, I can't try it without the gfx card as the mobo doesn't have on board video.

    I have tried resetting the CMOS serval times, by both taking the battery out and the pins. I have tried two monitors, two hdds and two keyboards both usb and ps2.

    Please clear the CMOS using the method I outline here in Post #2, and do it for 20-30 minutes >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    And then please remove your GFX card and see if the board boots or cycles, you should be able to tell with the fans.

    Other then the things you have tried you are going to have to connect a case speaker to try to find out what, if any error beeps are being emitted.

    Also, can you test your GFX card in another setup to be sure it is ok? Do you have a smaller GFX Card to test as well, that PSU may not be able to handle that GFX Card with the rest of your setup, could be the issue as well

    Have you checked for bent pins in the CPU Socket, look very close.

    Put my old mobo in and it runs perfect, nothing wrong with the gfx card. I have checked for bent pins and there all fine.

    Did you clear the CMOS?

    Find a case speaker yet? You can normally grab one in a old PC sitting around your house if you have any
