    Default [Help] GA-X58A-UD3R

    Hi guys.

    I have a very odd problem my computer is having very predictable reboots.

    For example, first it used to work just fine. Installed Windows XP and then I tried to install the drivers that came with the mobo (The GA-x58a-ud3r), after I did that, it started restarting every time I went into windows (but never when i went into safe mode).

    So just because I didnt want to deal with it, i just decided hey I know I will reformat this, since I have nothing on it anyways. So then I go to reformat, and I go through all these steps and it gets all the way to "installing devices" (the 2nd to last step) and there it just keeps restarting over and over and over again at that step.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated as I am pretty much at my wits end over this.

    More info on the build:

    Its a new build, however all the components seem to be working and running fine (even ran a memtest x86 on the ram, and it passed).

    700 W OCZ Stealth X Stream Powersupply ( someone said this would be a problem, however if it worked for several hours (4+) before hand, how could it be a problem now all of the sudden?)

    Processor : i7-930

    Connected Devices: 1 IDE CD/DVD drive
    1 SATA 1 TB Hitachi HD

    Other issues that I noticed:

    After paying attention to it, I noticed that before it restarts there is first a green light that comes on by the cpu on the mobo, and then a red flashing led and then the red led just says constantly lit with the green led right next to it and then both of them turn off, and the computer restarts before the install ever finishes or gets past the installing devices part.

    Please help guys, I would really love to be able to use my new hardware.

    If it is not a PS or cabling issue, I suspect a damaged / corrupted BIOS.

    Can you restart and load optimized defaults ?

    Which BIOS rev are you running?

    If it is too old, maybe you could update, use the guide for the use of Q-FLASH

    good luck, Jure Z.

    PS: are the LED's the ones indicating the Power Levels?.
    that's what I imagine from your LED description.
    As the system starts, it indicates the increasing power consumption, until it decides to restart.

    I dont think its the ram, because it reads it all, in the memtest x86, and it said none of it was faulty, but I tried anyways.

    I couldnt really find the code though, could you give me a picture of where it might be on the mobo? I ooked at the bottom right and there was nothing really there besides where i connected the hdd led and the power and reset things for my case..

    Even after loading optimized settings the same thing happens, and the leds are, hmm I will go take a picture of them, or see if I can find one on the internet. (will add these soon if i can manage to take them)

    I was thinking of flashing the bios next, but just kinda afraid if i did it wrong, didnt want to brick the mobo. Plus I dunno, it seems very odd to me that for a little while it ran just fine, even installed windows and everything and the problems only seemed to start happening after i installed the drivers that came with the mobo.

    in the Gigabyte site they show that your mobo GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview
    has a feature called:

    OV-Alert LED
    "4 sets of OV-Alert LEDs indicate the overvoltage level of the CPU, Memory, North Bridge and South Bridge to prevent component damage."

    If that is the case, maybe some BIOS parameter maybe set incorrectly.

    About re-flashing the BIOS, do not worry too much. Sooner or later you will have to do it. Follow the guide, and you should have no problems.
    Which is your current BIOS? Does it support the i7 930?

    Also, you may have a compatibility issue between drivers and BIOS, if you have just updated your MOBO drivers.

    good luck, Jure Z.

    Yeah sorry for the confusion from the earlier thread, that was my own fault, thats why i made this thread to avoid it getting worse in that one.

    Um by selected you mean does the bios realize that they are on ide? It seems to be at least, it says ide 4-0 is my dvd drive and for some reason ide like 1 or something is my hdd, even though its sata.

    I have a ps2 keyboard but a usb mouse, however that usb mouse is not connected when i start it up.

    Here though I have some pictures, that might help.



    Sorry for the horrible horrible quality, my camera clearly can not take such close up pictures.

    Slightly better quality can be found here:



    and for a zoomed out version to see where on the board it is

    Sorry for the double post but I made a video about the issue, hopefully that can help shed some more light on the issue.

    Let me know if you guys have any trouble viewing it.

    This might be unrelated, but as it is similar to a problem I had with my system, you could check if your issue is caused by the same BIOS settings that I described in this thread:

    I could install Windows 7 just fine, same as you did with XP, but after I installed more and more device drivers (ATI Catalyst, Intel Storage driver etc.) the PC began rebooting near the end of the windows start up sequence or latest a few seconds or minutes after windows was loaded.
