New Motherboard Problem Pleasee help

MB: GA-P35-DS3L(rev.20) BIOS: The version that came with MB
CPU Brand: Intel Core 2 Quad 9300 2.5GHz Model #: BX80580Q9300
VGA Brand: NVIDIA 8800GTS
Operating System: Vista 32-bit
Memory Brand: G.Skill 4GB DD2-1066 Dual Channelled
Power Supply: Rosewill 600W

I recently built this new computer and installed Windows XP on it for a few days. Every thing worked perfectly untill I decided to upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate x86 32-bit which worked fine for the first 2 boots, and then BIOS started giving me problems.

Started off with trying to restore BIOS information from harddrive halfway through the PC would shut off and reattempt the same procedure. For some odd reason it would only boot Windows if I press Delete Key right when i start my computer. (note: By the time this happened, I couldn't get into the BIOS Configuration Screen. Del key only bypassed problem).

In Vista, I swapped my usual USB keyboard for my debugging purple plug keyboard and did some vista updates, finally restarted my computer. Tried the usual del key trick and didn't work, figures it was USB and probably wasn't registered in the plug in play. The computer went through the screen of trying to restore BIOS information from harddrive shutting off and repeat, a few times. Finally the PC wouldn't boot that screen and del key doesnt do the trick anymore.

When I turn on the computer the fans, harddrive, dvd drive all turns on but the BIOS doesn't load. After turning on PC everything is running, lasts for about 5 seconds, then turns off and retries the process. I tried to reset the CMOS, but didn't make a difference.

Please help me out. Is my MB damaged? Is this MB not compatible with Windows Vista? XP worked how did Vista screw up my BIOS? Is there anyway or things i can do to try to revive my new PC or do I have to return the MoBo? or does the problem lie with another piece of my hardware such as CPU?

Thanks in advance.

GA-EP43 -UD3L motherboard will not boot with 16 GB of memory


Time to RMA, sounds like you have a faulty memory channel on the MB. Possibility the slots are not getting enough power to handle all 4, you try to see if you can increase power in bios.

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

Which is the best cpu that can i buy? i have the gigabyte 8ipe775-g rev 1.1 thanks


Well that is kind of a far off question. Do you want to know the best processor on the market or the best processor for your motherboard?
The best one I would say for your motherboard (LGA775) would be Intel Core 2 Quad or Intel Core 2 Extreme (The extreme is just an unlocked and overclocked Core 2 Quad)
The best Processor on the market however would be on the LGA 1366 and LGA 1155 Sockets as teh Intel Core I7.

yes you can upgrade to a quad, as long as its an LGA 775 socket processor, and yes the slower memory will bog down your others, you motherboard will operate the ram at the slowest speeds set in the memory bank

8GB G.Skill F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK in Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L rev. 2.0


If they are not a matched pair it will not work. If you have two sets of matched pairs. Each pair will have to go into the right pairing slot. Example one set you go in slots 0 and 2 and the other in slots 1 and 3. If you have stickers on the memory sticks look for a group of numbers and letters one group will match it's mate.
