I have a new DZ77BH-55K with a fresh Windows installation and the .0085 BIOS running an i5 Ivy Bridge. When I power up my system, I see the Intel splash screen, but before the F-key etc prompts pop up, the computer shuts down and after a couple seconds powers back up. I get a text warning that an unsuccessful boot attempt was detected, press >some key< to enter setup and adjsut BIOS settings or pres >another key< to continue to try to boot. If I press the key to try to boot again, I get the splash screen, BIOS F-key prompts, and windows loads up. System runs fine.
So I can get my system working. But this is annoying, and I can't see how it's working as intended. I had a moderate overclock with the overclock assistant, so I tried reseting BIOS to defaults and still saw the same behavior.
Any ideas what could be causing this? Hardware details:
8GB Corsair Vengence CML8GX3M2A1600C9B (2x 4GB)
GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670
OS Drive on SATA0: Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/240G 2.5" 240GB SATA
Storage Drive on SATA1: Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
I'm in a situation where if I can sort this out in a day or two, I'll keep the board, otherwise, I need to RMA it Monday-ish to get it back to newegg within 30 days. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello KC Coxe,
Here are our recommendations:
Ensure you have followed a clean installation of the Operating System using the latest drivers from our website.
Test the system on a minimal configuration out of the chassis. Test with minimum memory installed.
Test with a different power supply with at least 550 watts.
If the issue persists, update your motherboard BIOS to the latest version available.
