Weird motherboard restarting behaviour

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Gigabyte Z87X SLI that is behaving oddly on restart: if I press to restart, the motherboard shuts down completely for a few seconds, then turns on again, activates the video card but no signal (monitor comes on but is black screen), then shuts down completely again for a few seconds, then turns on again and boots normally. Normally motherboards I've had restart seamlessly without powering down, first time, without having to have 2-3 goes at it.


All other components have been tested elsewhere and a fully working. No overclocking is applied. Can anyone suggest what the problem might be here?

Gigabyte boards go all the way off when you restart or reset them IIRC. And then its just a normal doubble post which a lot of board do

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

It's normal, and only some boards do this

"People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn't they? People feared coal, they feared gas-powered engines... There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear. But with time, people will come to accept their silicon masters."

Really? I don't recall seeing other boards do this 'double post' - and I have one or two Gigabyte boards. 

try updating bios and turn off fast boot
