Asus Maximus V Gene shuts off when windows starts to boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently got an Asus Maximus V gene motherboard for a build and I have a problem with it... no matter what I try when windows install starts the machine shuts off dead!!! I tried install windows on another system with the same chipset and then plugged the SSD into the Maximus and again as soon as the windows starting logo shows the system powers down. Any ideas? I have tried 4 different cpus, multiple sticks of ram and 3 different PSU's!!!

Does it work fine on BIOS/UEFI then? So you have tried to both install windows directly and with a different system and neither succeeds boot?

 

Might have to update it's bios, gene's are hard sells and they usually stock up even if has few units so you could be running day one revisions with issues.

 

Try to boot using only your iGPU also while you're at it

Reflash your BIOS. If the Asus forums are to be believed it is corrupted.

Four different CPU's?  How did you get all that hardware?  You work in a hardware shop?

Board shutting off is probably why it was sold to you in the first place.  Dead board.  Could be a problem with a USB port, PCIE/video card port, voltage issue, etc.

Check for grounding issues by doing an outside mount first.
