    mate, it would be a cold start (only) problem - sure once power is up all is fine (for now)

    I did not say anything regarding your SATA but my HDD delay here is zero - I consider this as normal :)

    Sou what do you think? :)
    meh.. :)

    up to you, but I would try in this order:

    1) reset all oc to normal and see if the cold-boot problem goes away
    2) try another psu
    3) mobo likely is dud

    even all seems okay once the box is up you do have a problem that will bite back - usually one morning nothing will happen any more. Kill the problem or the problem will kill you ( data backups? keep them current :)

    1) I did, problem still persists.
    2) Will try as soon as I can get another one, prob tomorro. :D
    3) Should it be the case, do you think I can RMA the mobo? I mean, it isn't such a big problem but ofc annoying... I'd rather say it's a hiccup brought about by Giga's incompatibility issues. Please remember that my 80GB Samsung worked properly! :) So this fact should eliminate any further theories in connection with faulty mobo or PSU etc. :S An another fact we should take into consideration is that the time between the black screen and the POST is EXACTLY 15secs (note: the max time you can set as a hdd dealy is also 15secs) so I have a hunch that for some bloody reason my mobo automatically sets 15secs hdd delay for this particular HDD and this cannot be eliminated... :( Dah but then it should be the same when restarting ffs.... aaarrrrf... :( But again, how come that with some HDDs start up is ok and with others it isn't...

    generally a cold start problem is a valid reason for RMA. These are rare problems but all I've seen where dud mobos.

    Another trick you can try is hard reset the bios (bridge the pins) - return all settings and try again. Have you flashed latest F4 bios?

    I somewhat agree as I feel Gigabyte's product quality has declined a fair bit especially in the system board sector. On the other hand, we have here an AM3 socket mobo that is fairly new stuff and prone to problems.

    maybe it will work again with another mobo?

    I haven't flashed the F4 BIOS since all it'd do is change the CPU stepping nothing else. I just don't dare to do it because I'm afraid it might spoil my CPU's tuning potential by changing the steppings.
    Mate, we really seem to talk at cross purposes! :) I've had this particular mobo for months. Till yesterday everything was OK. Yesterday I bought a 5870 and this new Samsung HDD. I installed the new parts and since that very point I have this sort of delay issue. So I think it can't be the mobo. :S You see why? :) I hooked my old HDD up and with that one everything was ok.
    Anyway, let me thank you for all your help I'm really glad that someone is trying hard to help me! :) I appreciate it a lot! :)

    If you have hybrid sleep working correctly , i would just use that if we cant end up figuring it out. I actually timed how long it takes from when i push the power button to get to the windows login screen and it was 56 seconds.

    Hybrid sleep on my system will completely power off in 3 seconds- power back on in about another 3. Get you a Intel 80 SSD , forget about the caviar- though it is an excellent drive. My 500gb would start off around 90 and gradually work its way down to 70.

    Fl00d- im gonna talk to a friend of mine who has the same board as you, i bought it for em and remembered the model number so i figured i'd jump on to see whats going on. Ill ask him what experience he has had with his and hopefully he can give us a pointer or two. By the way, what other hardware u using?

    Wow mate thank you very much indeed! :)
    Anyway, my 640GB Caviar is gonna arrive Monday since I could RMA my Samu F1 so no intel SSD. :(
    Please remember again that booting is actually really very fast the problem is BEOFRE the POST, before POST there's EXACTLY 15secs delay for some reason. And I think it was my SamuF1... this mobo simply "didn't like" that HDD. I'm really curious whether the Caviar will eliminate this annoying glitch. :S

    No problemo , have u considered maybe another piece of hardware or software could be causing this? if u dont mind, could ya give me a layout of what other components your rig consists of? That may be of some help to us. Try googling samsung hdd and gigabyte troubleshooting, long post, any combination of your systems problem and see what pops up. Someone else out there must know something.

    I tried and actually a few people had problems with this HDD. According to the tests this HDD is a decent one but not recommended for use as a system storage. :S

    FSP Everest 500W 80PLUS
    Pioneer multi burner
    xsilence system fan
    and a small side-case fan and that's all. :S

    Hello everyone,

    I notice you was talking about the same MOBO, but I was having a different problem than the rest. You see, it would seem that every time I go and try to transfer large files, i.e. 4gb or more at a time my system hangs up. I thought it was just my original HDD which was the Samsung HD642JJ, but i switched it out with a WD 640GB. Same problem. So right now I'm thinking it might be a problem with the Sata drivers or possibly a faulty board altogether. If anyone else has or had this problem please let me know also a possible fix. Thanks.
