    Default Gigabyte Z68P-DS3 Rev 1.0 Power On Issue

    Greeting folks,

    I've made this rig a little while back -

    Gigabyte Z68P-DS3 Rev 1.0
    Intel Core i3-2100
    2 x 2GB G.skill DDR3 1333

    The basic stuff, machine has been running for a good 10 months.
    But now if I was to power down the machine and leave it off for a while, it won't power on again.

    Did the basic troubleshooting, testing the powersupply with my LCD PSU tester. Everything seems in order with the power supply.
    So did a clear CMOS, load default settings, starts up just fine, boots into windows no problem and goes about it's daily routine.

    Shut it down, leave it off for a bit and bingo does it again.
    Time to do some research, Bios version was @ F7 - went and checked for bios updates. F9 was available.
    Flashed the bios to F9 - Default settings. Turns on just fine and boots into windows 7.

    Shut it down, leave it off for a bit - won't power on. The moment I shut it down and leave it off for just a bit I can't get it back up unless I clear the CMOS.
    I thought about the CMOS battery and I've used 3 different ones I had available, even one that was from a working system. It still does the same thing.

    The computer works fine if I keep restarting it, but the moment I shut it down it's all over.
    I reverted the BIOS and flashed it to F8 to see if there was any difference. Same deal.

    I've put the bios back to F9 being the latest on the official Gigabyte support site, I came here to see if there was a new "beta" available but doesn't seem like it (unless I missed it).

    So where I'm up to now is, I have good working hardware apart from the Mobo it seems as I've tested everything else seperately. It will post if I clear the CMOS, I can access the bios menu, I can flash and load into windows as long as I keep resetting and not shutting it down.

    I'm gonna try the load optimized settings just for the hell of it now but yeah... Help please.

    I've changed CMOS battery and I was able to get it to power up, but 1 second later she'll power down.
    What the hell...
    I think I'm going to go buy some brand spanking new batteries.

    was that memory carried over from an older system? p55 x58? if so then that might be the cause,and are you running 32bit or 64bit? might be worth trying an 8gb dual channel 1600mhz kit?

    haaa, it was a brand new kit and it's been running for 10 months on that very system in dual channel.
    Also I'm always running 64bit :)

    ahh yeah i forgot about the 10months

    seems strange that once shut down it wont power back on again,do you have another psu to try? i think its a case of ruling out components,seemslike its causing the mb not to boot up?

    I guess I will try a different PSU - but I did test most of the hardware including the PSU separately and they work just fine. I'll hook another PSU when I get home

    Hi all there. I had this specific mobo for somewhere around 3 years or so. And I have to say that I had problems with
    this from day 1. I tried to go to the local store a few times in order to make use of the guarantee but with no lack.
    I was unlucky cause when the mobo was on their lab it worked perfectly. From times to times I had power on issues. At first
    I had to restart a few times in order to get just the bios logo. After a couple of months those times increased. And
    after that the power supply goes off. I changed the power supply. Again the first couple of months all ok. After that
    some restarts. After that many restarts. And today goes off. All these years I couldnt change the mobo. And I wont try to
    resell it to anyone, it goes directly to garbage. I just registered to post this to help anyone who is considering to use
    this thing. Do not get it!
