    Default Reboot loop..again and again

    Hi I have the GA-P67A-UD7 and I just updated the bios to the newest with the newest @bios as told here. I was able to get into bios when restarting for first time but now my pc is in a loop and it is a short loop, as the screen dosen't even turn on, and no POST peep eather. Have tried to clear cmos, unplug power and wait bit allways the same loop.

    Help please!!

    You should never flash with @bios,if it crashes mid flash then it will ruin your mb,always flash with qflash,if it let u get to the bios screen you might be ok,try clearing the cmos by removing the mb battery for 40mins or overnight them try

    Same reboot behavior as my gigabyte h67m-ud2h. Have you tried:

    "BIOS Recover Method Via Manually Invoking BACKUP BIOS Auto-Recovery
    Using Power Supply - On/Off Switch", here:
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ash-guide.html

    or the jumper trick here: http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/33904-how-fix-dead-dual-bios-motherboard-if-flashing-failed.html
    ?
    (They didn't work for me, BTW).

    I didn't flash with qflash but had this same reboot issue with my gigabyte motherboard.
    (In fact my flash was several days before the reboot failure).

    But, even if one screws up a flash with @bios, why wouldn't dual bios recover from the failed flash. Isn't that the whole point of having 2 physical bios chips in the system, or is it all just marketing and the recovery doesn't work in practice?

    Yes but it doesn't always recover from the back up bios,its always advised to update the bios on dos mode,not with any windows based software just to be 100% safe,if its constantly looping check all connections,memory modules,hdd wires ect,try with another psu to eliminate incompatibility issues,and try overnight mb battery removal

    Try testing by setting up outside the case on cardboard it wooden table to rule out possible short

    Check, did those things in my situation. Still curious exactly in which situations dual bios fails to recover properly and whether the 2 solutions I referenced should be applicable when the motherboard fails to even emit a beep code.
    In my case I've RMA'd since no recovery method worked. I suspect dual bios bricked my system by itself (initiating a failed bios-auto recovery in response to an OS crash). I would like to make certain this never happens again if dual bios can't keep track of which copy of the bios is valid.

    Ive seen lots of users brick there mb from a failed @bios flash,you can make a small 20mb partition formatted in fat32 on your hdd and save the bios to it then point qflash to the partition/bios file,you could've just had a faulty mb or psu/memory incompatibility? Idk

    But you can't point qflash to anything if the motherboard reboots in .5 seconds without a beep code or anything on the display, no?

    In my case, I didn't use @bios, I only ever flashed from DOS.
    In my case the memory&motherboard were working together fine for 2 weeks before the reboot loop failure. Alternate power supply made no difference, and using 1 memory stick at a time made no difference either.

    Im just saying what you can try instead of a usb stick as not all makes/models are recognized by qflash,you'll know whether its a mb or another components fault when you get your replacement one

    Ok, but my failure didn't occur from using qflash, I never did use qflash. In fact you *can't* use qflash to upgrade this motherboard from F3 to F6 bios. And from what I can tell it can't be used once the motherboard is in this failure state either. So I don't get the point...


    And I'm gonna be waiting a long time for the replacement now that the motherboards have all been pulled due to the p67/h67 recall. Grr...
