    Default GA X58A-UD3R Boot Cycle

    Hi all, I've gotten all of my new computer parts assembled but I believe I am having an endless boot cycle error with the motherboard.

    My system specs are as follows:

    GA X58A-UD3R Revision 2 Motherboard
    Intel Core i7 950
    Kingston HyperX 12 GB Kit (KHX1600C9D3K3)
    Nvidia MSI GeForce GTX 560 TI Twin Frozr II
    Thermaltake Fri CPU cooler
    Corsair 850w PSU

    I don't believe it is a RAM memory issue since I've tried all the sticks individually in the first white slot and it has had no effect.

    I then was thinking it might be a problem with proper seating of the CPU heatsink and made sure to be looking at the CPU temp LED but at no time does the LED ever even light up.

    I currently have the motherboard on an anti-static pad and have been trying to troubleshoot it but I'm pretty much at the end of my knowledge towards this are.

    The problem is that every time it is turned for the first time all the LEDs flash for a few seconds, the fans spin, and then it shuts itself off before getting to the post. From what I understand this is common with a Gigabyte motherboard.

    At this point it starts up again and gives the diagnostic beep code for "everything is alright" (1 short beep) and gets to the POST screen. When it gets to the POST screen the image flickers (sometimes shifting a few millimeters on the screen) and then shuts down and continues to reboot until it gets to the POST screen yet again and doing the same exact thing.

    Here's a short video detailing what I've described: YouTube - gigabyte x58a-ud3r boot cycle

    I agree, try another video card as I've seen similar issues with those new 560's and not anyone clear yet on if that's the issue or not.

    So it very well could be a problem that needs addressed in the BIOS. So try an older PCIE or PCI card if you can.

    Also, you can try this first before another GFX Card if you lke, try clearing the CMOS for 10-20 minutes and see if that helps. Unplug the PSU from the wall or board, then remove the battery and press the power on button for one minute, then put a jumper on the clear CMOS pins and let it sit for a while.

    I did try my old videocard, an Nvidia 8600 GTS and it had no effect on the system. Same problem.

    Working on that now! I'm not sure exactly how and where to short the CMOS jumper, though.

    check your manual if you don't have it download it from gigabyte site its usually the two open pins near the CMOS battery

    Would the 2 open pins be separated by some sort of non-conductive piece?

    There is a "clear cmos" print on the mobo but the arrow points to the area below those pins and towards a small hole in the mobo and a circular metal small piece beneath it.

    here's a picture: http://www.links.co.jp/items/high_gax58ud3r_01.jpg

    Where I'm talking about is above and to the left of the battery.

    This board does not have Clear CMOS pins, sorry, it has a clear CMOS button on the back I/O

    You can press and hold that for a few minutes (With power supply OFF), or remove the battery for a few, then if no luck try the battery out overnight.
