Question about Gigabyte GA-7VRX Motherboard

ESD noise (fluorescent lamp power-on) also wakes the computer from standby

EMI noise (fluorescent lamp power-on) wakes the computer from standby

You imagine every time you turn on the light-the computer starts breezing its fans..

maybe some EMI filter/cap somewhere onboard has gone bad,so MBO thinks it is a signal from wake-up connectors.Just an idea.

Make sure Wake on function turned off, Wake on LAN, modem ring...(Bios Setup)
Use a surge protector anyway!!!
Conect the lamp to a difrent place away from the computer.

You can buy expensive filters too or just buy a new lamp.

If you can try the lamp with another computer, make sure whats the real problem!

Power button blinks, nothing powers on

A blinking power button generally means the computer is in sleep, hibernation type mode. If pressing keys or moving mouse does not wake the computer, PRESS AND HOLD THE POWER BUTTON IN FOR ABOUT 5 SECONDS. This will force the computer to shut off. Then press the button again and the computer should start up and go through the "restarting windows" routine. If your computer continually will not wake up from sleep, disable these modes in the Power settings of control panel. If you don't know how, post question stating operating system and someone will be able to give instructions, or you could just "google" for them.

The motherboard is an A785GM-AD3 Black. I just built this system and I can't get a display or post out of it. I noticed that a red standby light is solid the entire time power is to it. Please help me. I...

1. Check power cables (It goes standby mode when there is not enough power supply)
2. Check CPU seating and CPU Power socket
in some cases CPU socket(on the MB) may be damaged
3. check the RAM (if one of the RAM malfunctioning)
4. Clear the CMOS/BIOS battery (b4 disconnect main Power supply)
5. CPU Power FAN / Heatsink. If not proper, 4sec system go standby down.
6. Do u correctly connected 12vATX to CPU

I hope This will solve your problem. If not may be need to replace your board.

How to enable GA-EP43-UD3L motherboard wake on lan?

Most modern ATX motherboards should have a 3-pin Wake-on-LAN connector near the PCI slots and should included BIOS support for Wake-on-LAN power up,check the Power Management Setup for this option.
As i check in your motherboard manual there is not pin but it supports wake on lan so go to bios and enable power on ring in power managment,it should be enable by default.Next right click on your computer,then properties,then device manager(OR YOU CAN SIMPLY GO TO START->RUN AND TYPE devmgmt.msc and hit enter).Then find the network adapters,click on it,and click on your ethernet controller(it should be realtek,gigabyte something like that) and the go to advance and scroll(search) for "wake up on lan" "wake up capabilities" and make sure that is on or enabled AND YOUR DONE:)

Hi I have an MSI 865GM2 Motherboard and Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard. I want them to be able to wake the computer from Standby or hibernate, but cant get it to work. There is no power management...

Yes, you need to go into the BIOS at boot time. Look for a set of "Wake on" settings (LAN,Modem, Keyboard etc). Probably under either Chipset or Integrated peripherals.

It looks like you really have tried everything so bare with me if I say something you already tried.
If you mentionned all the components of your systems, I calculated that you need a 400W power supply (your system only consume about 330W but you need headroom so 400W is about right) Make sure your power supply is good, I'm saying that because I had the exact same problem with one of my motherboards and it was the power supply that looked OK but was indeed bad. If your components are starving for power or the voltages are unstable it will reboot.
ESD stands for Electrostatic discharge and would have happened when manipulating your components, if you were not grounded (best way to ground yourself is to leave the plug in the PSU but turn OFF your PSU at the power switch behind the power supply, that way your case will still be grounded) The fact that you did mention that your motherboard was tested OK and so was your processor is puzzling.
An other thing that may seems obvious but I'll ask anyways, did you put thermal paste on the processor and made sure the heatsink is seated right? Check in your BIOS all the health data, voltages, temperature and fan speed. Make sure all your voltages are within range ~3% for good stability.
An other thing is your graphics card could bring your whole system down, it happens. It usually is power supply related but I wish you had a basic graphics card to plug in to test your system stability.
This is just my 2 cents, I know most people will not answer you because they are scared you will bring their rating down, but hey, most of the time I get bad rating even if i answer right on the money so I don't care anymore. Let me know what happens, I'd be curious to know what the problem was.

Dear Nikodi

The power supply may be paying tricks on you. Consider changing it. You can also test with another one before you switch them. It's usually the culprit in this scenario; getting ready to die..

For the standby problem, set everything in BIOS to default. If you don't know how, get someone to reset BIOS for you to DEFAULT. This runs without hibernating and restarts at the touch of a key or mouse.

Good luck
