Gigabyte z97x-soc force , boot issues

Post #1 by TheGingerKid » Wed Dec 30, 2015 5:09 am

so for the past week or so my mobo has been doing this odd boot loop where it doesn't post or beep , flashes numbers on the debug ... and continues to do so until i trip the power on my psu to off then back on , then it posts and brings me to the bios "a boot error has occurred ~~~~~ gives options~~~~ , select bios , then exit out of bios and save and it boots normal. tried updating bios again ( version f8 , the latest) tried with single sticks of ram , thought one or more ram slots were dead , appears not to be the case , reset cmos , and bios setting to no avail.
any suggestions on what could be causing or possible fixes ? anything would help .... tried rma but gigabyte refused again (disliking them more and more as the days go on)
once its booted its 100% fine , no other issues at all , but its annoying none the less ( and interferes with my oc sessions )

anyways , thanks in advance

(edit: guess some pc specs may help !

agreed , so far after a few cold boots it appears to have been the issue ! didn't have this issue before the latest bios (f8) was odd.

Have you ran memtest on each stick and in each channel? Appears that its comon on the soc for dead/faulty ram slots, mine included.

yea my ram passed with flying colors in all slots after i disabled fast boot , some bios bug made hell for me. all works minty again. heck i even dialed in a stable 4.9ghz oc on my 4790k with my ram at 2400mhz 10-12-12-32-t1. weird issue , but i can work around it

I know this thread is a bit old, but I had the exact same issue this week with the same board and I fixed the issue by doing the same thing as the OP. So anyone else suffering this issue should probably give this fix a go first.
