    Default Z68X-UD7 Boot problem... Any help appreciated

    Hi,

    I just finished my build 2 days ago and now i have this strange problem...
    It happened suddenly after a reboot.. no way to get my rig booting.

    When i press the clear cmos button the boot process is going on, i can see the screen going on with the GA stuff and then the system just keep shutting down and up...

    a small video of what's going on : YouTube - ‪Gigabyte Z68X-UD7-B3 Fail‬‏

    ANY help appreciated coz i down want to take my rig appart ...

    Thx

    er....

    cmos clear.It isnt supposed to be a "while power is applied to your system" thing.

    I have 2 cmos clear buttons one is on the mbrd close to the interior led fault/debug display something like your gigabyte one(asrock).The second is near the ps2 sockets on the i/o panel outside the case, if I just want to clear cmos with the panels on.

    I consider them a convenience,but Im sure they work exactly the same as "old mbrd jumpers" and I would never short out/clear the cmos while the pc was running.

    Maybe gigabyte z68 boards say this is ok,but I would turn off the pc first.then turn off the psu power then hold down the power on button for at least 30 sec to clear capacitor current etc.
    Only then would I clear cmos if for some reason I found it necessary.

    Right now id plug everything out,then clear current by holding the power button down then hit a clear cmos button.
    If that doesnt work ,use the backup jumper on the mbrd.
    If that doesnt work,take out the battery abd leave it for an hr.

    If that works. load and save optimum bios defaults and reboot.
    If you then need to change things like which hdd/ssd to boot from or switch from ide to ahci mode,go ahead, but if none of the above works I wouldnt know what the next step to try would be ...unless the super secret lsdmeasap bios restore works on z68 boards

    I can not located any bios rest button on the back panel.
    On the right top there is a BIOS_SW button, in the manual they say it the cmos clear button. I pressed it w/o success.
    Now on the right back next to the battery there is a CLR_CMOS but i can not locate any jumper, eventually there are some "bridge points" but too much to locate the right ones.
    I'm now trying the remove battery, wait 15 mins, decharge capacitors .. will see what will happend..

    Its the second Gigabyte board i own, the first one back in the days of the x58-ud5 died after one week ... I hope this problem will be fixed soon coz i'm slowly loosing faith in this brand..

    I'll keep you posted..

    Cheerz,

    You might need longer,30mins even overnight,and removing mb battery is the best way,just pinch the clip together and lift out the battery
