    Default boot up issue with GA-P55-USB3

    Hello,

    I am in desperete need of your help. I've put together a new PC and run into two issues which i think can be related to the GA-P55-USB3 (rev2) im using.

    My first issue:
    When i push my power on button on the chassi, the system starts but only for 1 second or so, then it shuts off by itself, only to reboot again after 2 seconds (without me pushing any button).

    After the self-reboot or what to call it, the computer starts like normal.

    My second issue:
    Once the computer starts and the gigabyte logo screen shows, im getting the following BIOS error:


    Warning: MAIN BIOS CHECKSUM ERROR!

    Retrieving recovery source from HPA... HPA BIOS not available!!

    Retrieving recovery source from Backup BIOS... Done!
    Writing BIOS Image.....
    ... and it stays like that forever.


    I have tried the following things:
    - Upgrading BIOS version from F8 to F9
    - Replacing the battery on the GA-P55-USB3
    - resetting CMOS
    - trying both default settings and fail-safe settings in bios
    - tried using only 1 of my 2 ram memory modules (in all diffrent slots, but in DDR3_1 and DDR3_3 as standard slot)
    - made sure all connectors are installed properly
    - upgrading my PSU

    My full spec is:
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3, Socket-1156 (GA-P55-USB3 rev. 2.0)
    CPU: Intel Core? i5 Quad Processor i5-760 (BX80605I5760)
    RAM: 2x Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL9 (CMX4GX3M2A1600C9)
    HDD1: 1. WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR GREEN 640GB SATA/300 64MB (WD6400AARS)
    HDD2: Western Digital Caviar® GreenPower™ 1TB Sata 3 Gb/s, 64MB Cache nr: (WDWD10EARS)
    PSU:Corsair VX 550W PSU (CMPSU-550VXEU)
    DVD: Samsung DVD-burner SH-S222L/BEBE (SH-S222L/BEBE)

    Any ideas?

    Yes I updated bios via Q-flash. But I had to reset CMOS after doing, else it wouldnt start if I remember correct. Eitherway it says F9 in BIOS.

    try flashing again but makesure you clear dmi pool data before flashing,you will see a tiny box that either has to be ticked or un-ticked cant remeber but you want to have it so that it clears dmi pool data then go ahead and flash the bios

    Does it do the BIOS error issue with no drives connect (HDD or CD/DVD)?

    May be issues with the memory, a few similar kits are having problems as noted here

    Can you borrow another DDR3 stick from somewhere to see if this is the problem?

    Yeah the BIOS error comes up even with the dvd and hdd's unplugged.

    I'm gonna see if I can tryout my friends memory. If that fails I will return the mobo for a new one.
