Smart Headphone Amp will not stay on Level 2, no matter what I try. If I put it on Level 2 and close off the app, it is fine until I reboot, then it goes back to Level 1 power output, which is no good for my 32ohm headset and requires me to manually change the audio output power level each time I use the computer (even if waking from sleep). If I select Level 2 while listening to music, I can hear the volume increase, which is good, close it off, stays fine, if I open the software again from the system tray, you can audiably hear it drop as it resets to Level 1 power settings, which are then reflected in the UI saying that it is on Level 1. This is repeatable. Again, I can select Level 2, close it off and the output power level is the same, but the moment I open the software it clearly resets itself - I'd be fine with that if it didn't reset itself after rebooting because then I could just leave the software alone.

This is clearly a software issue. I've reinstalled the software but it still does it. I've got the latest drivers from the Gigabyte support website and I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 64.

Any ideas?

Optional Reading: Other notes which are not related to this. Since setting up my PC earlier this month, it kept freezing and crashing, repeatedly - I thought it was hardware failure... as it turns out, nope. Reinstalled Windows 10 several times. Tweaked it and was very careful not to install unnecessary extras and specifically installed stuff in a certain order, including the latest AMD chipset drivers from THEIR website (not Gigabyte - those seemed flaky to me). Everything runs great. The moment I installed a bunch of App Center utilities (out of curiousity) as part of the dreadful Gigabyte App Center, I got a blue screen. Basically don't install any of that tat that Gigabyte push (and shouldn't). Something out of the utilities I downloaded caused a thread_not_handled issue, which I got with dodgy Gigabyte utility drivers before. I went over 2 weeks without it. As soon as I installed that silly software, literally a few seconds after doing so, blue screen - not sure what caused it, DAC UP, RGB Fusion, Smart Information Viewer / Smart Fan, On/Off Charge/ Colour Temp and Fast Boot - these were the ones which were installed, and funnily enough after each installed, I didnt reboot first but it still crashed, so it could of been any of them. Basically, just don't install that software. Curiosity got the better of me, so it's my own fault. Since then I've uninstalled the extras (though DAC UP and a couple of others didnt show up in the App Center but I fairly certain I uninstalled Fast Boot) and the App Center itself has been uninstalled and it's been, touch wood, fine so far. Before anyone asks, no it wasn't an overclock. It was these very dodgy pieces of software, that manufactuers really ought not to encourage people to install. I'm not whining at Gigabyte for it, but these kinds of apps cause issues and some people would quite easily believe it to be hardware failure.

Hi, Finally the solution: New MB... the new one started from the first attempt.

So a happy ending except for the time you had to spend replacing the board.  Glad to hear it.   :)
Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Spectre vulnerability - BIOS update
« Last post by wh173 on February 21, 2018, 02:44:15 am »
There are no firm release dates.  This has been an ongoing discussion here.  The fixes will come from intel, AMD and Microsoft and will be cumulative, taking as I predicted, several months to be tested and deployed.  No single manufacturer has a solution (regardless of what they might claim) and being first to that finish line doesn't mean you win.  Earlier this week more exploits were identified.  Be patient.  The vulnerabilities have been present for ages, long before your devils canyon or broadwell chip was produced.  There is nothing you can do. 

I see this is your first post, so welcome to the forums.   :)

Meltdown has already been neutralized through windows updates, the spectre update which requires a microcode, had been released, but has issues and Intel pulled it from distribution (gigabyte didnt btw, broken uefi updates with this flawed microcode are still online), got newer updated versions which has been deployed today by Intel, ball is on gigabyte's court now:

A couple of recommendations / observations.

RAM should always be installed in matched sets (unless its single channel).  This means same brand, size, timings, etc

The processor you choose can affect memory support

Best results are achieved when you use RAM listed on the QVL for your board

Your board supports Dual/Triple channel, so you should install 2 like DIMMs for dual channel or 3 like DIMMs for triple channel

No. I use HDD. I buy SSD. but waiting for cargo. // I have the same problem. only the 1st and 3rd slots are working.

i have 6gb installed and working but then when i plug in my SSD i get 6gb of ram but only 4gb usable...

any idea on whats wrong ?

Mmm thats interesting, is this happening only on SSD systems That is what I am building and have probs
Hello to everyone.
The 1st and 3rd slots are working. but the RAMs installed in other slots see the system but are not active.
I have updated the latest BIOS version. I researched. but I could not find a solution. processor pins are solid. motherboard socket pins are solid.

Disappearing RAM on X58 Motherboards

I see two options.  Reset the BIOS (CLR_CMOS) and Load set up defaults before attempting to flash using Q-Flash.  After Loading Set up defaults, press F10 to save and allow the system to restart, entering BIOS then tapping <End> during POST or F8 if you are in the BIOS.  The BIOS file you want to flash should be placed in the root of your USB stick formatted FAT32.

If the above fails, I would contact support.  If you have drives configured in RAID, make a full system image back up before resetting your BIOS, as the reset will kill the RAID set and require that you restore it once the BIOS is set up again.
I do not recommend beta BIOS unless they specifically address compatibility issues, security flaws or add functionality you are missing and need.

Patience will win the day. Why gamble.

I understand your recommendation. This is not if I should upgrade or not. I'm not able at all to install a newer version. That is my issue, I cannot even flash F22 or any of the beta BIOS files.

I do not recommend beta BIOS unless they specifically address compatibility issues, security flaws or add functionality you are missing and need.

If your system is stable, you do not need the HT or ME vulnerability patches or the latest CPU microcode updates that might "break" a perfectly working system.  More updates are coming.  Patience will win the day. Why gamble.

My system is almost running 24x7, is always connected to my internet connection. I visit various websites, run all kinds of software. So yes, my system is very vulnerable to any of the security vulnerabilities.

I want my system as secure as possible and want to upgrade to F23c. I don't really think there will even be a non beta BIOS released again for my motherboard as the hyperthreading issue was released more then half a year ago and no official BIOS since then.

Lets focus on why I can't even flash F22 or newer. Not if I don't require them or not.
