No post after ~15 minutes of use.
 
Put together system.
Install windows.
Install a few programs, a game.
Run game.
Game crashes.
Hard reboot system.
No longer even posts, stuck in infinite reboot.
:censored:.


Board is a GA-H67N-USB3-B3 with an Intel Core i3-2120, 8 GB's of Mushkin RAM, an OCZ Agility 3 SSD, all in a Sugo SG05 BB case (450W PSU).

Reviews say some boards are DOA, but not at the site I bought mine from. :doh:

Any ideas?

Remove the battery and clear CMOS. Then try again.

thats the dual bios trying to kick in

unless you are referring to windows rebooting?

if its the bios, then pull the plug.

power button a few times.

plug the plug back in and wait

nothing happens?

push power button once and wait,itll go tru some weird reboots till the second bios

does the first bios a new one.

else, pull it out the case and start swapping parts.

ive built an army of i3's,lots with giga,asus..etc.

were you on the ups/power bar when it happened? :)

No effect.

This is a board that has DualBIOS, so wouldn't the backup take over if it was something like that?

In any case, it didn't work. Sad panda.

Nothing happening yet...

Also, don't really have any parts to swap, but I mean it's not even making POST so what else could it be?

And yes, I was on a power bar, why? (It's never given me ANY trouble, if that is what you were thinking.)

its not even making post? but stuck in infinite reboot? elaborate please...perhaps heatsink wasnt properly installed and cpu burnt up? likeliness of the cpu making it through windows install/game install etc is slim to none...but none the less a possibility. personally in your shoes, i would strip the system back down to nothing...and rebuild, double and triple checking everything..
and when i did that , i would pull the cmos battery right untill i hit the power switch to turn it on.

i see bios F5 is current

sounds to me that
@BIOS allows you to update the system BIOS while in the Windows environment. @BIOS will download the latest BIOS file from the nearest @BIOS server site and update the BIOS.

while playing your game system was updating bios when game crashed so did flash leaving your systen DOA

please note system bulders

get all current certified drivers and bios before installing OS

then use F6 option to load drivers
