    Default GA-MA770T-UD3P problem

    Hello,

    First of all, let me apologise for posting a new thread but I do not really know where to write my problem. :) Thank you for your understanding.
    My cfg is the following: GA-MA770T-UD3P (rev. 1.0), AMD PhenomII 905e, AMD HD 5870 1GB, PSU: FSP Everest 500W 80PLUS (should be more than enough), HDD: Samsung F1 1TB 32MB which I bought today! Now my problem is when i shut down my pc and then turn it on again it takes EXACTLY 15secs to get from the black screen to the POST. If I just restart my PC then it's ok the POST screen shows up in about 4 secs. But after shut down there's 15secs dealy between the black screen and the POST when i turn on my PC. I've tried everything I could but the problem still persists! I tried to set HDD dealy to 0 and 5secs... no success. :( I hooked up my old HDD (80GB Samsung sata) and with that one it only took about 6secs to get to the POST just like before. Any ideas? :( This is so annoying... What shall I do?

    All your answers are greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,

    the system board is waiting for a power-good (signal) before it can start up. Power good only comes up when voltages are seen as good. There are basically two main possibilities:

    1) your psu is bad (bad voltage levels)
    2) your mobo is bad (voltage detection)

    3) hopelessly overclocked

    FL00D- you are not alone. Even with my Intel 80gb SSD G32 it takes around 45 seconds- 1 minute from when i push the power button to get to desktop. Did the same when i using WD500 caviar black as my main drive. Only difference i see is the windows loading bar dont take as long. I think its just a gigabyte board thing , my buddys rig does the same thing. Really long post times. Then again, yours has only been doing it since u swapped HDD's.

    I would really like it if someone came along and had a solution to this. I did read somewhere that gigabyte is working on this issue but cannot be 100 % for sure on this. Anybody else encounter this? Like wtf , my dual core ASUS notebook w/250gb 5400rpm drive boots up quicker than my desktop, thats what really bugs me.

    Phenom dude, my brother and i use identical rigs besides i have the SSD , and both use corsair tx750 PSUs. 5 months old and im sure im not using anywhere near that amount of juice.

    almost forgot, one time i tried switching init display first order from its PCI , to PCIe-2 which is the slot my GFX is in and saw a real improvement in boot/post time. However, i cant seem to get it do post quick as it did. LSD has said that it dont make a difference which one is selected in BIOS, it will all boot/post same amount of time.

    What mine does is Show bios logo screen, very briefly the post screen, goes black like the monitor turns off, then a black screen like its on, off, then back on ...sticks there for a few seconds then goes to load windows.

    dbee, you misunderstand my statement

    I am not saying the psu is too weak, it can be just one voltage level too low and noting will happen until this voltage has built up.

    I have the same board here and after a pwr-on it starts instantly..as you would expect it.

    My mistake. Please dont send your pack of kangaroo's after me . lol sorry i just had to seeing as your from australia.

    That does make sense, kinda like when i do a reboot, it does not take nowhere near as long as it does when powering on after a complete shut down.

    The thing is that neither seems to be the case now! :(
    1: Once I'm under Win everything is ok. If my PSU were bad I should encounter serious problems such as: bad performance, freezings, random shutdowns etc. But actually it's not the case. For instance my PC performs really well at Vantage. (I bought the HDD and VGA yesterday so the only thing I've tried so far is Vantage and some CPU/memory speed tests)
    2: Negative. With my 80GB Samsung SATA it's ok. Delay is only about 5secs which is absolutely normal.
    3: Yes my CPU is OCed to 3.25GHz but ofc I loaded safe defs and that made no difference either. :(

    So what do you think? :)

    Dbee, the problem is that I've got to wait for 15secs BEFORE the POST screen/Giga logo appears and not during the POST screen like in your case. :) Anyway, 45secs till the desktop appears is absolutely ok! :)
    Dah bloody hell I was about to bring back my samsung 1tb and get a 640GB Caviar Black, but you said you had experienced the same with that one too... Well the thing is that it's bloody gigabyte mobos which always have some kinda incompatibility issues... a pain in the neck... <_<
