Question about Intel Motherboard
I have a new build that is randomly rebooting itself anywhere from every 2 - 60 seconds. I get the standard "good" post beep and then the system will reboot itself. Sometimes I have enough time to get into the CMOS and other times not.
The system specs are as follows:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R
CPU: Intel Q6600 w/ G0 stepping
Memory: Corsair TWIN2X-4096-6400C5 kit (CM2X2048-6400C5-G matched pair)
HDD: 1x Samsung 250gb (SATA II)
2x WD 750gb (SATA II)
Video Card: MSI RX2600XT T2D512EZ (ATI)
Case: Microcenter PowerSpec
PSU: Cooler Master 600W
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, this is a brand new build and as such doesn't even have any operating system on it.
First things first - once you have all the components properly seated (sometimes if a RAM chip or CPU heatsink/fan isn't quite right it'll cause those problems) clear the CMOS entirely. There should be a jumper somewhere near the CMOS battery - move it from the 1-2 seating to the 2-3 (with the system powered down) and count to ten. Move it back over and then try booting up again. If the problem continues, swap the memory chips. Otherwise repost once you've tried the recommendation.
