    Default P35 DS3 (rev 2.0) reboot issue

    First of all. Hello to everyone. I'm pleased to be a user of this great community.

    My problem appeared 2 weeks ago. After an overnight shutdown, my system just could not boot. Recycle boot, which is famous Gigabyte issue.
    Tried: 3 sticks of ram, which are working on other systems.
    3 different power supplies that are working on other systems
    2 cpu.
    clear cmos (about 10 times)

    That seems like mbo problem, as I said.

    The really problem is that I have no warranty. It was a gift from my godfather. So i can't RMA it :S

    Is there any other solution to fix this mbo, or should I just broke her? :)

    Here's my system spec:

    E2140
    Gigabyte P35 DS3 (rev 2.0) bios f14
    2*1 gb Kingmax 800
    Corsair VX 450
    HD 2900GT

    I have contacted the Gigabyte customer support, gave them my serial number, said they coul not solve anything about this case, and that I should go to they're distributor in my country (Croatia) and that will cost me.
    That's not fair, it is a factory fault, not mine :S

    And sry for my bad english :)

    Hi CARpeDiem
    You should try a bench test for P.O.S.T.
    You could be getting a short from the case. We recommend you remove that motherboard from the case/chassis and test the board for POST. Please follow the following simple steps.
    1. Place the motherboard on top of the cardboard box (you can use the motherboard box)
    2. Install the CPU, CPU fan, Memory, Power supply plugs (plug the 1 X 20 pin and 1 X 4 or 2 X 8 pin from the power supply unit) and a video card.
    3. Hook the monitor to the video card and be sure the monitor is switched on.
    4. Turn on the system board by using the case "Power on" switch.
    If the system fails to POST, check the components' insertion again to ensure they are all connected properly.

    See this post for additional suggestions for trouble-shooting your motherboard.
    If your motherboard is still under warranty, the distributor in your country will have to handle the warranty, unless a local computer store is willing to help you with a replacement, where they would send your mobo to the distributor.
    You will have to compare the shipping costs to the distributor with the cost of a new motherboard.

    Tnx for reply guys, I did all of that stuff. Still nothing. There's no short in case, or outside on my mbo's box.
    My all components are tested, and they are working on 3 other systems.
    Also tried dfi long bios clear, still nothing :S

    Edit: my system does not beep, just pwr on for 4 sec, then turn off. Pwr on, turn off. Stucked :S

    This is a shot in the dark. Unplug power supply. Clear CMOS(remove battery also). (Just have one stick of memory and video card.) Also unplug any unecessary fans that are needed for boot from the MB. Plug power supply in And then power on.

    If that doesn't work. Unplug power supply again. Remove Video card. Plug power supply back in. Then boot. Wait. Poweroff. Unplug supply. Clear CMOS(remove battery also). Leaving the power supply unplug press Power switch for 10-15 seconds. Install Video card. Plug in power supply. And Boot.

    If that doesn't work. Try unplug power supply a few more times and pressing the power switch.

    This has work for me on many different systems that don't boot. I think it has something to do with a logical latch not clearing to do with power control on Motherboards. But don't quote me on that.

    I hope this helps. If not I know how frustrating it is.

    Hi CARpeDiem Here is a tutorial on bios flash from Lsdmeasap that has instructions for Attempting to Recover From a Bad Flash or Corrupt BootBlock. You may want to give it a try. http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    hey man, tnx for answer and link. Currently i cant make bootable floppy disk, cause i don't have any other computer at my house, except this laptop :) Will try it tommorow at my friends system :)

    I'm just wondering is it possible to flash bios with floppy, even the system does not post, and its rebooting constantly?
    p.s. my first boot device was not floppy :S

    edit: can i flash with bootable usb stick? it worked on q-flash while system was working

    I don't know I never tried that procedure. The BIOS should have reset the boot options when you cleared cmos. This is on page 34 of your manual PG34----> Press the End key on post to access the Q-Flash utility directly without having to enter BIOS Setup first. So instead of del press end and you should be able to go directly into your Qflash utility. I don't know if it will work on yours now but it use to. Please be sure you get the right bios flash program. You wont need to make a bootable floppy if you press END at post and get into the Q-FLASH utility. I would try that first.
