BootBlock BIOS Problem On Gigabyte Motherboard
Posted on 2006-11-01
I need some help on this one. I have a feeling that I'll need to send the mobo back, but figured I should check with you guys first. I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard running an Intel E6600 proc, 2x1GB sticks of Corsair memory and an ATI Radeon X1900XTX vid card.
Yesterday, when I turned on the monitor, I saw a lovely BSOD and had to restart the computer. When the computer came up, I got the Award BootBlock BIOS screen. It search the HD and was not able to find a BIOS file, so it just sat there. I rebooted the computer again and this time it did find the BIOS on the HD (now I wish it hadn't). After restoring the BIOS, the computer rebooted again and went to crap from there. Now all it will do is turn on for about 3 seconds, power off, and then repeat the cycle. I've resent the BIOS, removed the battery, pulled all the cards, nothing seams to be helping. The only way I can even get it to beep at me is if I remove all the the memory. I've looked all over the net, and so far, all I've found are people who got stuck at the BootBlock screen, no one has had any problems past that. This system is not even a month old, so this is a very annoying problem. I've had the memory replaced recently as it was failing the memory test, but the new pair passed just fine. I need some help on this one.
