    Default GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK (rev. 1.1) Not posting

    I have been struggling with this for a few days and am in need of assistance. I am having trouble with the computer even posting and never actually get to the BIOS. I have tried with two different PSU's, with memory, with one stick, and with no memory. I am using the on board video and not a separate video card (yet). It also does the same thing both with and without the CPU installed. Each time, the motherboard powers on and the cpu fan spins, but it never does anything after that. With the PC speaker installed, it never makes a sound. I tried resetting the CMOS by using a jumper on the pins, as well as removing the battery. I even tried switching to the secondary BIOS, but with that it just powers on and off every 5 seconds or so.

    Is there anything that I can do? I do have a newer CPU (i7-4790k) and know that only newer versions of the BIOS supports it, but I can't even get anywhere to flash the BIOS. This is outside of any case so that isn't a problem and I also do not see any code being displayed on the motherboard.

    Thanks!

    Check CPU socket pins, and prepare for RMA, CPU or MB, your call.

    This is my second motherboard already (the first was completely DOA) so it might be time for a different CPU. I was thinking I might get the cheapest supported CPU ($50) just to see if it was the CPU.

    Definitely sounds to me like either the cpu or the socket. I would pull the cpu and carefully inspect the socket pins...I bought a new Gigabyte board 2 years ago with bent pins right from Newegg.
    If you have a digital camera, pull the cpu and take several macro pics of the socket up close. This will help you eliminate bent pins.
    Good luck.

    You can get one under $40, but how would you know that CPU is ok?

    I suppose that if the other CPU didn't work then I can assume that the other CPU is ok. It's also the cheapest thing to try. I have not tried new RAM, but I wouldn't think that would cause this problem and rather cause an error on POST.

    tried a long cmos clear? leave cmos battery out for 30 minutes put back in and try

    for it to post successfully you'll need cpu/cooler installed,one stick of ram,psu connected

    if its still doing it,carefully inspect the cpu socket for any bent pins,post some close up pics of the pins/socket if you can

    I am having this exact same problem - same board, same CPU. I have a monitor plugged into the HDMI and see a flashing underscore in the upper left of the screen. I'm on my second motherboard and second chip. As far as I can tell, no bent pins. Did this ever get resolved for this user?

    I did try that - tried it with nothing but memory attached using HDMI through on board video; no drives, no USB, no other peripherals.

    I was able to get it up and running, but there is definitely something wrong. I started looking hard at the video as the source of the problem. LED codes seemed normal, telling me "BIOS setup started" upon system startup, despite video not showing it. Hitting DEL on keyboard went to another code that seemed perfectly normal.

    On a whim, I reinstalled my video card and plugged HDMI into that and it came up. I checked BIOS and on-board video was enabled.

    The machine is up and running now, but something is amiss if on board video failed on both motherboards.
