    Default X58-UD5 Please provide an error code list for the debug led

    Gigabyte GA-X58-UD5 advertises "Onboard Debug LED display simplifies motherboard troubleshooting"

    After an unsuccesful overclock i got 6F or bF error on the onboard debug led, causing failing post loop.

    Where can I please find the meaning of this error or any reported debug led error for that matter, so that I simplify my troubleshooting as advertised...

    I would really appreciate an official answer to the matter.

    With regards, Nicholas T.

    Look at page 118ff of the User Manual for POST Error Codes ...

    6Fh 1. Initialize floppy controller
    2. Set up floppy related fields in 40:hardware

    Thanx for the answer mate.

    Already saw that though. No note that this list appeals to the debug led.
    And after all never had a floppy, and never got any floppy related errors before the overclock ...
    I suppose that list refers to displayed on screen errors since none of them are only two characters.

    In Standard CMOS Features, is Floppy A set to NONE?
    In Advanced Bios Features, is Floppy in any of the Boot Priority fields?

    In boot priority, there is only "Hard disk". Everything else disabled.
    Floppy A is set to none.
    Thanx for trying, but as said before I'm not looking for a solution to my particular problem.

    I want or demand should I say, a list appealing to the so called Onboard Debug LED display that will simplify my motherboard troubleshooting as promised and advertised as one of the assets of this board by GIGABYTE...

    I'm really looking forward to an official answer on the matter...

    Your best bet would be to mail Gigabyte directly.

    For the most part, this is a community run forum, with one moderator who I believe is not a direct gigabyte employee (could be wrong, he's very knowledgable tho and has good contacts).

    I too would like better trouble shooting guides on what LEDs/Beeps mean. For example if I can replecate "Power Error" on my board (23 short beeps) by setting the wrong tRead value, then it's not a "Power Error".

    I understand your frustration.

    Maybe your particular error is caused by the overclock settings being slightly mal-adjusted, causing the board to wigg out. Similar to the "Boot sector corrupt" message I get when pushing my system too far, maybe the board is just giving you any old error message as it borks. Note that after re-setting my overclock, my boot sector magically un-corrupts itself.

    I always thought it strange that a machine that goes wrong is able to tell you what the problem is. If the machine has gone wrong, then potentially the error reporting component can fail.

    Hope that made sense, and I hope you get some feedback from Gigabyte.

    I believe those codes happen when QPI/Vtt voltage is set way to low, and or can also happen if you have the memory in the wrong slots. Please check to be sure you have your memory in the correct slots, they should be in slots 1, 3, and 5 for triple channel and 1, and 3 for dual channel (white slots)

    As for debug codes, I have found this and I believe it applies to most all X58 setups using an award BIOS >>
    BloodRage: AWARD & Intel X58 POST Code/Debug LED Guide - XtremeSystems Forums

    If you are using the correct slots, please try more QPI/Vtt and or possibly IOH or ram Voltage

    What BIOS are you using, if not the latest please update to the latest. Latest Beta's are here and a Qflash guide is here

    Thank you for the link ...

    Even though the 6F continues to be something related to floppy :D
    Rams are proper. 3*2GB triple channel just fine.
    No problem before trying overclocking. Vtt applied was 1,52v , more than enough from what I ve read.
    I am up to date with the F7 bios, no betas/modded in my machine since I'm not that of a guru on the subject.

    Topic still stands. Need a proper, gigabyte appointed list for the debug led.

    Psycho101 thanks for sharing my frustration mate. I'm amazed that others didn't get annoyed by this clearly advertising marketing trick.
    Do you know a valid email for gigabyte's support?
    (valid meaning that others that used it got an answer back)

    Have you tried Less QPI voltage, sometimes more messes things up.

    I would of course also suggest the latest beta or final BIOS, a beta BIOS would be fine no worries I always use them.

    Here is tech support from Gigabyte, they will answer you it just may take a few days >>
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/ServiceCenter.aspx

    I will see if I can get an official Debug list from my contact

    Again about the ram, you do have the in the correct slots right? Just checking, they need to be in the white slots. And set your Uncore multi to 2x ram multi for now to be sure that is not an issue either. Don't use auto, set it. And also set your QPI multi to 36 for now as well.

    Thank you for the link. I used it. I'll write back if I get any feedback.
    Please do the same if you get something from your contact.

    (And yes rams are in the proper slots, as appointed by the manual, they work just fine from the virgin boot)
