    Default GA-X58A-UD3R POST LOOP Help Please!

    I just got this motherboard back on a RMA from Gigabyte a few days ago. After re-installing, stress testing with Prime95 for 15hrs, and running games on it for a couple of days with NO problems, the system froze up on me. I hit the reset button. Now the system fails POST. It gets to the memory check, all fans come on, then powers off. Then comes back on. It repeats the same process over and over. I pulled the CMOS battery for a minute, re-installed. Same problem, but now I see the Gigabyte splash screen, but I'm unable to get into the BIOS. I've replaced the RAM, didn't fix the issue. All the overclock LED's are now Red and Yellow, whereas when it was running they were blue. All the DDR phase LED's seem to be lit up as well.

    I was running slightly overclocked. Turbo mode (2) 3.2GHZ with the Smart 6 software that came with the MB.

    Will I need to RMA? Again?

    I would try with only 1 stick of ram and everything but the GPU and HD's connecte... if you still have it I would pull the MB from the case and try running it on the box the MB came in (don't put the anti-static under the MB). and run the system case-less

    Could be something odd... I would try that first.

    what was the reason for sending the board for RMA in the first place? and did they fix it, replace it or do nothing but ship it back?

    Hi Vin,

    I tried using 1 stick in the first white slot. didn't help. I think it has something to do with the BIOS crashing. I noticed all the Phase and Load LED's have changed from when it was running. The PC was running fine for 2 days. I was listening to music on it when it "froze up". Then after hitting the reset switch. it got stuck in this "post loop".

    Since my first post, I've removed and re-seated the CPU. I've tried another graphics card. I've also removed the CMOS battery for 30min. Still doing the same "post loop".

    The first RMA was unrelated. One of the "Japanese" capacitors popped. Still under warranty. So, I RMA'ed it. I don't know if they sent the same board back repaired. I know I NEVER had a problem like this with the first MOBO.

    I'd contact tech support and tell them your issue with the replacement board. maybe they'll cover the shipping to/from.

    Have you tried the motherboard out of the case? maybe something is shorting?

    but if you can't boot at all... pull the battery over night ---12-24hrs.. I've had that work on an odd issue before...

    after that, once you put the battery in and boot, if it goes, enter the bios and "Load Optimized Defaults" and re-boot again and see if it will run.
