    Default GA-MA790FXT-UD5P problem

    Hi guys,

    I am having the following issue on a "cold" boot - when the system has been powered off totally overnight for example. When I boot up, the Gigabyte logo comes up, I can get into Bios if necessary, but just before the raid detection the screen freezes with a flashing cursor at the top left of the screen with a green icon and next to it "N" in the middle of the screen. This is very annoying as I have to crack open the case to reset the CMOS to get it to boot properly. Otherwise the motherboard operates flawlessly.

    What is the solution? I am using the latest BIOS F7.

    Thanks

    Hi, I have the same mainboard as you. Actually my problem with it has been to do with Gigabyte SATA2 (Jmicron powered) ports. Whenever I connect my SATA2 HDDs to these ports, they failed to detect them during boot process. So as a solution I connected my HDDs to AMD sata2 ports.

    What you're talking about is really annoying. I hope you find a solution to this problem. I use Bios F7 too. I haven't had any problem with it so far but I've been waiting for a new bios (F8C beta).

    Kind regards.

    I am not running the machine in a RAID config, nor are any of my drives connected to the Jmicron powered ports. This problem does not occur every time after a cold boot. It has happened only a couple of times, but it is extremely annoying nevertheless.

    Please fill out your signature above on the UserCP tab. Fill out as much information as you can about your system. I changed the size and color of mine to make it not stand out so much. This will help some respond with some suggestions. With the limited information you have posted I am asking myself to many questions.

    looking @ your config

    wheres the RAID ?

    All your HDs are different

    AHCI mode sucks. I think ide mode is faster and more stable.

    I am not using RAID. Only in AHCI mode. I have never had problems using AHCI before, and I cannot find any information that relates AHCI mode to the bios corrupting itself when fully powered off.

    Nice signature and system.
    When you say power fully off, Do you mean power disconnected? If so you don't want to do that everytime you shut down. The CMOS battery will go dead. Leave that minimum power on to keep the battery charged. You also may need to replace the CMOS battery.
    I have provided a pdf below for your motherboard manual. Please allow a bit for it to download. Instructions for the CMOS battery are on Chapter 1-12 on page 30 of your motherboard manual.
    12) BATTERY
    The battery provides power to keep the values (such as BIOS configurations, date, and time
    information) in the CMOS when the computer is turned off. Replace the battery when the battery
    voltage drops to a low level, or the CMOS values may not be accurate or may be lost.

    Ive tried AHCI mode 2 times on my GA-MA790XT-UD4P with a 500g Seagate. Both times i lost everything.

    Its Known that the AMD 750SB doesnt like AHCI mode or AMD cant get the AHCI drivers right.

    Ive might have found a solution tho. Reading this forum. Using Microsoft AHCI drivers are the way to go
    SATA driver issue w/ Win 7 and Gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H - Page 2 - Windows 7 Forums

    AHCI mode is almost obsolete anyway.
