New motherboard issues?

Question

Posted

Hey guys!

Today i got a new motherboard GA-H61M-S2PV (rev. 2.0), intel i3 3225 and a corsair PSU CORSAIR Builder Series 450W CP-9020049-EU.
I did flash the new BIOS update, installed windows 8 pro but when i shutdown the pc and then try to power it on screen just doesn't turn on.
I hear no sound at all and when i press the power button after 2-3 minutes it shuts down immediately. But when i press the power button and then
the restart button then it works just fine. It may be the cpu but everything seems to work really nice after the booting in Windows :/

Anyone having any idea why this is happening?

Maybe the BIOS flash was incorrect ... ?

Is the power setting on the Supply set to 120 volts ?

I don't think so cause i had the same issue before the BIOS update
About the PSU i don't know, is there any setting in BIOS to check?

If you have a separate GPU, have you disabled onboard Graphics ?

I did from inside the BIOS and the issue is still there

Edit: Just changed the boot option from UEFI to Legacy and it works fine!
Strange why this may be the issue. I'll see now if it happens again in the near future

It actually happened again :/
I noticed that when i change the Init Display First to PCI and then boot to BIOS again it reverts back to Auto.

CMOS battery wouldn't keep the system from POSTing, After your powersupply swap I would reseat the CPU, then if that still doesn't fix it, RMA the board.

No, but it could be the reason his CMOS settings are not sticking after a reboot, although generally that would only happen with complete disconnect from the mains too

You should set it to PEG, just FYI.

[/quote]most of the time this is true. there are a few odd boards out there that route some odd things through the cmos battery
heck just a few months ago I remember a thread on neowin where the OP could get his computer to post and it ended up being a dead cmos battery (this was also a new mobo, which is why i said earlier that even a new mobo can have a dead or dying cmos battery)
