    Have you tried again performing Load Optimized Defaults?

    Yes. It occurs with load optimized and load failsafe BIOS settings.

    Hello,

    I have this same problem - one difference is that not always. Sometimes when I hold any key system will halt sometimes not.
    Also when I unpluged and pluged again USB keyboard from rear panel of masterboard system was boot normaly.
    My computer data:
    Masterboard: GA-790FXTA-UD5
    Processor: AMD Phenon II x4 3,2GHz
    Memory: Kingston 2x2GB (1333MHz)
    HDD: WD 750GB
    Keyboard: USB A4Tech G6 Wireless Desktop
    Interesting is that for PS2 keyboard problem was not appear.

    Generaly in my case problem is very unstable but exists.
    I have informed Gigabyte service - we will se what they answer.

    BR.

    I've got a case open with Gigabyte on this too, but they can't reproduce the problem. I can reproduce the problem almost 100% of the time with my PS2 keyboard. Just for the fun of it I replaced my Radeon 4550 with an ancient Matrox Millennium PCI video card. With this video card the problem happened a lot less often (maybe only 5% of the time), but I was still able to reproduce the issue.

    Hello,

    I have Nvidia GTS250 (Gainward) video card - I can't replace it because I don't have another one. But we can say that problem appears on the different video cards, different memory and different keyboards.
    Unfortunatelly nobody from my friends don't have this same motherboard.

    What about video cameras, psu's, or USB hubs, or the mouse? Maybe a pci card. If it is hardware related somewhere you should find some common hardware. How will you find it? You may want to post fully all perephereals and hardware. See if you can find a match here. I would even post monitor and printer. Try to find a match.

    Thanks for the advice. My main hardware stats are below. I've reproduced this with just one stick of RAM, video card and power supply connected, so it's not likely to be one smoking gun piece of hardware. Actually I did forget to disconnect my floppy drive. jurek do you have floppy drive installed?

    The only thing I've found that seems to affect this is the type of video card. If I replace my PCIe video card with an ancient PCI Matrox Millennium I can only reproduce the problem ~5% of the time (vs. 100% with my PCIe card). So my theory is that it's related to the motherboard/video card interaction.

    Despite this one bug I've found, I still plan on building another PC or two with this motherboard. Once that happens I'll be able to do some more problem isolation on my own. Unfortunately it will probably be late this year before I get the time to build the new PC(s).

    Hello,

    No I don't have installed floppy drive.

    Then the only common factor I've seen among the three cases of this is that we all use the same AMD chipset and the motherboards are all made by Gigabyte.

    Like I said before, the model of video card installed does seem to influence the success rate of reproducing this issue. Since this problem has occurred with three different video card manufacturers I think the problem responsibility lies with Gigabyte.

    To their credit Gigabyte support hasn't tried to dodge ownership of this problem. But unless they can reproduce this problem I doubt they'll be able to fix it.

    I have been having the problem for a couple of years now but not when pressing any stop keys - it just does it randomly when booting. I have a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-UD2H and an AM 2+ 2600 processor. All the other parts have changed from time to time and had no effect on this problem so ive discounted the graphics and memory. I have this pc running as a multimedia box connected to a TV and with wireless keyboard and mouse. It's really annoying and would love to find out why this happens.
