Motherboards with Intel processors / GA-X79-UD3 restart loop after sleep
« Last post by mordred on Today at 01:33:45 pm »
Hello folks.

I got a slightly used and working GA-X79-UD3 and an i7-8930k pack from a friend and decided to build a new system for me.

After setting everything up (gtx 1060, 8gb hyperx, Thermaltake touphpower 750W) and working with it for 5 days with no problem, I was installing a game and decided to leave it and go out for a moment.

I returned after an hour and the system was in sleep mode as it should be (it didn't get into sleep mode before). Tried to wake it up and the system started to reboot every 1 second (no posting at all-blank screen)

I tried 3 different working psus, other memory modules, other grapgics cards, cleared cmos, with no result (no hdds attached or anything)...

What can I do?

Appreciate the feedback.  Glad you got it sorted.

Hi Pete,
Since your issue is unrelated, please start a new thread:



Based on the initial complaint, it sounds like you are using a Linux or dual boot configuration and the boot manager or partition holding this information has become corrupt.  Include more detail about your configuration in the new topic and we'll move forward from there.  This doesn't sound like a Gigabyte hardware issue, but instead a software problem.

Cheers

 :-\ :-\ Hi, I am a newbie, but I have not been able to find how to start a thread/post on an issue I have with the same MB. Hence this comment on an existing post.
   The desktop PC has been working fine for a couple of months, but yesterdays boot failed with a message : no such device ( string of characters _ then a GRUB: RESCUE message. When I look in the BIOS pages the HDD does not appear in the boot order. If I press F12 at boot time the HDD appears in the list and it boots fine if I select it. Subsequent re-boots fail with the same error, so the only way forward is to press F12 at the boot-time message on the screen. Can anyone help please. It would be good if somebody could enlighten me as to how I can correctly log an issue .
Regards and thanks
Pete

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Mobo flashing bios by itself

Am gleaning additional information each time you reply.

So the system isn't failing to boot each time you start, but only say 2 times out of every 10 starts?  This was not clear previously. 

You also stated that the system restarts itself after shutdown is initiated?  Does this occur every time, or randomly similar to the "recovery" that happens?

While this appears to be a hardware related issue, you might want to disable automatic restart in the OS to ensure there isn't a software issue causing the behavior. (this is unlikely but possible).

I also recommend reviewing your System Event Viewer for possible errors or information that might coincide with the problem (timeline). 

Are you sure your hardware is up to snuff?  Power Supply is in good condition, not weak or old.  Sometimes they die slowly.  Output on one or more rails fluctuates causing instability, unexpected restarts, etc. 

What else can cause this?  Overclocking (CPU or memory).  Or, using memory which is not on the QVL for your board.  Very hard to diagnose something like this over the internet.   

Over the past few days I have isolated what is causing the issue with the BIOS removed/backup BIOS or whatever is happening. It only happens when the DisplayPort cable is connected to the pci-e GPU. I tried like a hundred times to boot from the igpu or only connected with HDMI and DVI and it worked fine each time.

I was provided a newer BIOS than the available in the website by Gigabyte to test if it could be fixed, but it didn't work. At the same time EVGA couldn't tell me anything, so I don't know if the cable was faulty, the gpu is faulty or the motherboard somehow struggles with this GPU or what. I went yesterday to buy a new cable but the store didn't have any, so I'll have to order it online.

About the pc turning itself on; this past week it's been turning itself on when I shut it off. It tends to happen when it's powered on for some time, I suspect it's something I have messed with in Windows but this is harder to test, as I only have one chance every X hours. It doesn't reboot itself, doesn't turn off itself, the PSU seems stable... But I don't know.

edit: anything specific that I should look for in the event log?

I have the MB GA-970A-DS3P rev 2.1 and last weekend I updated windows 10 to Windows version 1809
From that moment on the Realtek HD Audio Manager does not work anymore and I can only use my 5.1 speaker set as 2.0

What have I done so far:

- I have tried multiple gigabyte drivers
-I have tried many realtek drivers
-I have tried many drivers from the Microsoft®Update catalog
-I have switched off the audio in the bios and uninstalled everything from Realtek and removed it manually
Then switched on again and installed again
- on the internet there is a lot of talk about this phenomenon and the debt to Realtek is given which has not yet released new drivers for the new update of windows 10
Reinstalling Windows is not recommended because it does not help (this is my opinion too)

Does anyone have a solution for this?

General discussions / Re: Buying pc components on Amazon

My own experiences of buying PC bits from Amazon have been excellent.

If you do have any issues with a faulty component, they act quickly to replace it or refund you and I have never had any hassle if I have needed to go down this route.
