    Exclamation Gigabye GA-P55M-UD2 & GSkill = Endless Pre Post Rebooting

    CPU: Core i5 750
    RAM: GSkill Ripjaw DDR3 1600 C7 1.65v 2x2gb sticks (not on the supported mem list for this specific board, but gskill's website says it's confirmed to work on the ATX gigabyte boards, but didnt mention the mATX version. The tag on newegg & even on the pkging says it's specifically designed for i7/i5 1156 systems.
    M/B: Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 v1.0 fty default bios
    PSU: OCZ Stealthxstream 600Watts (new) & Logisys 650watts SLi (old but accidentally broke via static shock)
    GPU: Powercolor HD4870 PCS+ 512mb

    My PC will not post. The system starts up and gets to the pre post and i can see the gigabyte screen, then it shuts itself down and turns itself back on 5 seconds later. It will continue this loop forever until i power off the switch on the back of the PSU. I've done a ton of reading up on problems like this and it's usually a memory issue. I've tried the memory in all slots and in single/dual configurations. The power reset loop will happen only when there's one or two dimms in slot 1 & 3 (white slots). If they're in the blue slots (2 & 4) the system wont even get to pre post. It'll just sit there with all the leds on and all the fans on including the video card. I know it does this because you're supposed to use the white slots and only use the blue slots if using 4 dimms.

    Here's the thing though. Im not sure if it's the PSU or the RAM. It has the same exact issues everyone else is having with the constant reboot loop and those were all fixed by using a diff brand of memory. The thing is that before my Logisys PSU broke, the system would pass post but i wasnt getting a display signal. I fixed that by connecting it to my tv and back and all was well after that. Put it all back together but forgot to flip the switch on the back when i was about to close it up i moved one of the wires and the mobo lights quickly lit up and the PSU never worked after that. I replaced it with the OCZ stealthxtream 600w and now im getting the same exact constant looping people are getting with incompatible memory. Those people with the same issue tried diff PSU's and the same issue occurs and was only solved by getting diff memory.

    I've tested inside and outside of the case, with all connections secure, with bare minimum (cpu/memory) to see if i can get a post. with and without video card, memory in all diff configs (single & dual), cleared cmos, removed battery for an hour, etc and the looping memory still occurs.

    Should i trust the OCZ PSU (better brand and quality that the poorly rated Logisys i had) and get new memory, or should i try a new PSU. I have an older thermaltake 420watt i can test with for a post. Will do that later.

    Any suggestions would be welcomed especially if you have had the same issue.

    thanks.

    Testing with your mobo outside of the case with another psu is a good idea.
    Only use one memory module with a minimal hardware setup.
    If you're able to get into the bios, the first thing you need to do is to load Optimized bios settings and then save settings and exit. Re-enter the bios and configure your memory with lower memory timings, possibly 1066 speeds for starters.

    Your goal is to get your system to post and boot reliably with both memory modules installed. You can tweak your memory later to run at higher memory speeds. Sometimes there is an incompatibility issue with a particular brand or model psu, even though the psu might work perfectly with a different motherboard.

    If your system boots OK with just one memory module installed, run Memtest86+ (v4.0) for at least 6 - 10 full passes. Memtest86+ can be run from a floppy or CD/DVD drive and probably from a bootable USB drive once you can enter your bios and make the appropriate bios settings for boot devoces.
    Repeat this test with the second memory module.

    Good luck!

    Please check you cpu fan is fasten well. and try minimal hardware setup such as one memory stick...
    If it can bootup, you can also update to latest beta bios to check.

    tested with my 420w psu and the same thing occurs. i hooked up a case speaker and it actually does pass the post test, but it turns itself off about a half second after a confirmed successful post beep. then it turns itself off then on again rinse n repeat.
    i cant get into the bios at all cuz it resets after the post. i did press the tab during the post and it shows all 4gigs being recognized (and 2gb wen using 1 stick) its shown running at 1333 speed. i can see that the cpu is being recognized as it should as well.
    now im confused on what to do next. it shows the ram but doesnt get to the point to show the hdds. im thinking of reseating the cpu again and if that doesnt work im gonna have to get a cheap ddr3 test stick to update to the latest bios.

    it posts with and without the hdds. it posts with bare minimums as well. it just dies the instant after the memory is checked.
    reseated the cpu and the issue still occurs. i think im gonna side with gut instinct and grab a cheap stick of ddr3 to test with. my issues all mimic those memory issues. damn u 1.0 mobos.

    Some memory is just not going to be compatible until you update the BIOS, so you may need to actually do this first before trying any other memory.

    Of course different or cheaper standard memory may work just fine without a BIOS update, I just didn't want you to try it out and then think your other memory is bad when it very well may be fine and you just need a compatible BIOS to use it properly.
