    Default EX58-UD3R Will not POST

    Hi All. Have run into a problem that I cant seem to resolve. This is the first time I've used a GIGABYTE board for a build. The build was working fine for a few months until Windows XP blue screened. Tried to reboot, booted, blue screen straight into XP loading, tried Safe mode, rebooted, went to BIOS safe defaults, tried to reboot, blue screen.
    The system was set up for dual boot XP/Vista64 on separate drives. Booted into Vista, tried to reboot and received message from BIOS something on the order "Scanning hard drive for BIOS Image". The system went through rebooted "Scanning hard drive for BIOS Image" a couple of times.
    Now it wont POST at all. The four PHASE LED's stay lit and the speaker is emitting periodic clicks but no beeps. I have tried a different power supply, all devices out, re-seated the CPU, down to one stick of RAM (tried all 3 in different combos) The system layout is

    EX58-UD3R
    INTEL Core i7-920 (SLBEJ)
    OCZ DDR3 Platinum 1600 6GB
    OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W PSU
    Cooler Master Hyper N520 CPU cooler

    Its looking like I'm going to have to RMA the board, but if its something else I'd rather know now than find out with a new board :) Any help would be appreciated as GIGABYTE support seemed to have lost my email :(

    Oh I read somewhere else about someone who had the "Scanning drive" issue and they suggested putting the latest BIOS image on a drive and trying to boot. Tried this...no luck. Thanks.

    Oops should have mentioned that. I tried to clear the CMOS settings, both with jumper short and (not that it would make a diff) taking the battery out. Same issue.

    Yup tried that as well. With two drives in fact, one with nothing except the BIOS image on it. The thing that gets me is that GIGABYTE go on about the "dual BIOS", so if the main BIOS was corrupted the back up should work, not sure why such as set up would need to scan the HD for an image.

    it will scan the hard drive if its selected to do it in the bios,it can be switched off but it wont let you get in the bios will it? maybe it would back itself up if hd bios back up wasnt enabled

    One of the first steps I took was to reseat the CPU and the heat sink. I havent had cooling issues with this set but then I didnt really get round to trying to OC it either :(

    other thing to try is to short the pins but keep a screwdriver resting on the contacts for 4 hours as it can take up2 4 hours to clear cmos in some cases

    Figured I'd try this! Took out the CPU and memory. Tried to boot it. It didnt. Reset CMOS by shorting jumper. Put CPU and memory back in. Now the system will try to start, PHASE lights blink once then it turns off. No beeps from speaker. So now I dont know if its the board, PSU or CPU. Will try another PSU but I suspect the PSU is OK. Fun Fun Fun.

    First , you will get much much better support on this forum than the gigabyte website. If you cannot even get into the BIOS, i would straight up exchange the board. It was working fine before for a few months and it crapped out on you. I really hate to tell u that, i could be way off and way wrong . We really need some more suggestions in here.

    If you bought it locally, swap it out. If you bought it online, i would buy a board from Microcenter if you have one near you , and use that to see if the Mobo is the problem. Or even if you know a friend on EX58 , try there board. I never had to RMA thank God but i would expect that would leave u without your machine for some time.

    You get a message saying scanning hard drive for BIOS image, u think maybe somehow your mobo lost the bios?
