    Default X58A-UD3R boot problems

    I have tried searching for my problem, but have not found another example that is like mine. The problem was small at first, but gradually became worse over the course of a few weeks and now I can't get my computer to boot.

    At first I couldn't boot the computer after it was shut down for a long time. I figured out that I had to hold down the power button until the motherboard's LED's turned off and then press the power button again to get a boot. The computer would boot fine after that. Standby mode also didn't work anymore. If I put the computer to sleep, I could not wake it up unless I held down the power button before pressing it again for a cold boot. Besides these, everything else worked perfectly fine and normal. Restarts from Windows were normal.

    I had to do the power button thing every morning if I shut it down the night before. After a while, I started getting CMOS checksum errors. The computer would boot, reload a backup BIOS(?) and then boot again into Windows with no problems. This happened every time I turned off my computer and turned it back on with the power button.

    Yesterday when I tried to start my computer, the system shut itself off during the Windows loading screen. And now the computer won't boot anymore. It would turn on for a split second with spinning fans, but immediately shut off.

    I figured it was just a CMOS battery problem at first. I tried removing the graphics card. With no graphics card, the computer will stay on but doesn't do anything, and I still have to hold down the power button before it will boot. It doesn't boot into Windows (no Windows boot sounds) and it doesn't make any beeps, and the keyboard and mouse lights don't come on. I tried removing a stick of RAM and taking out the CMOS battery for a while to let it reset. My computer is still dead.

    I did not overclock anything. I have ruled out the case's power button as the problem, because it works flawlessly when in Windows and I tried switching the power and reset buttons, which made no difference.

    Specs:
    Intel i7-920 2.66 GHz
    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R
    Sapphire Radeon HD5850 graphics card
    G.Skill 6GB (3 x 2 GB) DDR3 1333 RAM (running at 1066)
    Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W power supply
    Intel x25-m G2 80GB SSD
    Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB HDD

    I tried removing the battery for a few minutes. Just now I tried putting in a battery from my old computer. Nothing changed.

    On second thought, removing the video card seems to make no difference. Sometimes it will start and stop instantaneously, and sometimes it will just start and not do anything except spin the fans. There's no video output. Also, the video card fan will spin at full speed. Kinda scary.

    There's no video at all. It either turns on and then instantly off, or it turns on with the video card fan going max speed, but nothing will show on the screen. Not even a signal.

    Wow, I think I am incredibly unlucky. I tried the video card from my other desktop. It didn't work. But when I plugged it back into the old computer, it wouldn't display any video. And the fans just get loud while nothing happens. I think the X58A-UD3R destroyed my old video card...

    This is so stressful and now both of my good computers aren't working anymore. This sucks. What should I do? :(

    Oh and also I tried using just 1 stick of RAM in the 1st slot and it did not work.

    Could you try with another power supply ?
    Maybe one of the power supply cables is not fully connected?

    Unfortunately I don't have another power supply lying around. The power supply in my old computer is only 350w. I checked all the connections and everything is plugged in correctly.

    My computer also ran perfectly fine in Windows even when it first had the startup problems. I played graphics intensive games and never had any problems except for booting up. I kinda doubt it is the power supply because of that, although I wish I had another one just to make sure.

    Edit #3: Now my old video card works again. Still no luck on my comp.

    Please try clearing your CMOS Fully using the method I outline here in post #2, sometimes you need to do it this way or it does not work

    After that, try starting the machine with NO Hard Drives connected, and with only one stick of memory in any white slot.
