    Default Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H boot issue

    I just installed a new mobo and am having an issue booting. I installed a new i5 2500k and 8gigs of Corsair too. I was originally getting beeping when I would turn on, but I disconnected the extra drives and now it just turns on and doesn't beep.

    My extra hardware is a 700w gamexstream psu, dual GTX 460s and an OCZ SSD.

    Ask any and a questions. I may be overlooking an obvious issue.

    Any help is appreciated.

    What kind of beeps you get or don't get, single or other?

    Please attach a CPU-Z text report, CPU-Z -> About tab -> Save Report (.TXT), in the forum go advanced and the manage attachments below, and attach the file.

    I was getting short beeps then a different pitched beep at the end. But when I unplugged my extra drives, it doesn't beep anymore. It just turns on, and doesn't beep. No single beep or anything. I can't attach a CPU z sorry.

    What do you mean by "It just turns on". Does it pass post, do you get anything on the screen? Is it booting normally now?

    It was beeping but now not beeping. Check the system speaker is still connected to the motherboard.

    Exactly what was it peeping. The beeps are a code 1 beep is ok. 3 beeps could mean bad memory 4 beeps could mean something else. I think 5 beeps or more is no video. The manual should tell you how many beeps mean what.

    Try clearing the cmos maybe try pulling the battery out for 5-30 min. Try starting with only cpu, 1 stick of ram, 1 video card no hdd,cdroms, dvdroms, no usb devices except keyboard and mouse.

    When I turn it on, now it just turns on and doesn't beep or post. My monitor light stays orange and not blue. When it beeped it was short continuous beeps. Then I unplugged my extra hard drives and it stopped. I did try booting with integrated graphics, one stick, no drives etc. Could it be a dead board, even though it's new. I'd consider a dead cpu and ram but wouldnt I get special beeps cause for it? Is there something I'm overlooking that's really simple?

    The manual says continous beeps mean power issue. But it's short beeps with a different pitched beep at the end. I'll clear the CMOS when I get home.


    Thanks

    Yes, please clear the CMOS and do it for a few minutes at least.

    Then if you still can't get it going, and no beeps, you should remove the board from the case and OFF the motherboard tray. Then try to start it on a wooden table or cardboard box. I say to make sure you remove it from the tray in case you have a removable motherboard tray, because if you leave it on there that could be causing the short we're looking for here. If it works on a table or box, then inspect the motherboard tray or case, to verify there are NO extra mounting pegs that you aren't screwing screws into through the board, some cases and trays have extras that may short out your board, you only want the exact amount and in the exact placement per the amount and position of the holes in your board.

    And be sure you have the 24 pin power cables connected to the motherboard, and the 8 pin (Or 4 pin) connected to the board near your PSU. I know that sounds silly to remind someone of, but you'd be surprised
