PC won't boot to anything

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

OK, so i got myself an i5 6500T and it doesn't seem to have any physical damage but it does not boot to anything.

- It shows up fine in the BIOS

- It detects all the RAM i put in there

- Adding voltage doesn't affect

- Downclocking doesn't affect

- Other CPU's work fine

- Neither a Windows installation on SSD works as a bootable Linux on USB

 

I have no clue what is going on. It's really fustrating since i wanted to use this CPU in a project where i build a gaming PC in a Xbox One casing.

 

Specifications (testbench)

- ASUS Z270-P motherboard

- 16GB DDR4 3000CL15 Corsair Vengeance RGB (2x8)

- Crucial M500 500GB SATA SSD with Fresh Windows

- Intel Core i5 6500T (defective?)

- Cooler Master 212 CPU cooler

- EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1000W PSU

enable CSM (compatibility support module) in the bios under boot settings

 

That is enabled and it still will not boot. It goes straight into BIOS.

Look at the video attached (don't mind the quality)

why not just make a bootable windows USB?

 

The SSD installed is a fresh install of Windows. I can however make a bootable Windows USB and show you the result but i am sure it will give the same result.

use the media creation tool to download a windows 10 iso

 

then use rufus to apply it to the USB.

I have done that and it's booting to it but gets stuck in forever loading.

did you boot legacy or UEFI off the usb?

 

It's set to both Legacy and UEFI.

 

I just wanted to update my reaction: I managed to boot to the SSD without instantly booting to the BIOS. However. Booting to the SSD also results in either a stuck blue flag or infinite loading icon.

 

*Same thing applies for the USB.

disable CSM and try booting windows installation media off a USB

Unfortunately, this results in an endless view of the ASUS bootlogo.

Is it normal that the SSD where my fresh Windows is installed onto dissappears from the bootmenu once i disable CSM?

 

*Maybe important to note is that Secure Boot is enabled and i am unable to disable this. Only option i have is OS Type Other OS / Windows UEFI Mode

yes its normal

update the bios to latest.

disable csm

stop trying to boot from already installed media

get a new USB and load the windows installer on to it

delete the secure boot keys first that should disable it

Still does not boot to the USB stick with bootable Windows.

Just to give it a try i tried booting to the fresh Windows installation but this does not work either.

 

Is there a possibility that one of the cores died and that disabling cores could fix my issue?

 

*EDIT: I disabled all cores but one and it seems that i am now able to boot to the USB stick. I will install a new version of Windows and then re-enable all cores.

have you confirmed the installation media is booting off another PC?

I can confirm that installation is completed with only 1 core active and currently Windows running on 2 cores.

Anything above will not work and freeze once booting to Windows.

try disabling cpu power settings like cstates 

disable speed step and turbo boost

try a manual voltage of 1.3v

disable vitrualisation technology

 

install chipset drivers

Unfortunately this is not a succes. It's defenitely not my powersupply since this one has been used for a couple years under heavy conditions and should not cause any issue with this low-powered CPU.

 

*I set the idle voltage to 1.3 too and it loaded into Windows till i got a BSOD. Might be something wrong with the powermanagement itself i assume?

try 1.4 or 1.35v whats the BSOD error? have you tried simply reseating the CPU?

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT have all shown up when booting.

I tried BluescreenView but it did not save the BSOD to the minidump folder.

I have reseated the CPU about 5 times in total.

Changing the voltage to 1.35 and 1.4 only made it last longer to 'survive' but the system still froze.

 

*EDIT: I have been able to retreive two dump files and have added them to this post.

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT is a big one, take a stick of ram out and see if anything changes.

I will try this later. 4.40am right now. Tomorrow you’ll get a response :)

OK, so i have done the following:

- Reseating

- Removing 1 module

- Tested both modules in all available slots

- Testing 1, 2, 3, all cpu cores again with each module

- Disable Speedstep

- Disable Turboboost

 

I know the memory works fine, this is defenitely not the issue.

Memory runs on stick speed.

Issue still exsists.

 

EDIT:

 

Just ran a Cinebench R20 test with the following setup:

- 2 cores enabled

- Speedstep enabled

- Turboboost enabled

- Both 8Gb modules installed for in total 16Gb at 2133mhz (stock)

 

Idle temps are 21c, load temps are 31c.

Test completed succesfully with a whopping 492 points (whew)

you could also try increasing vccsa and vccio voltages slightly

Changing the voltages to VCCIO 1.2v and VCCSA 1.25v does not change anything when it comes down to stability.

I also tried:

- Setting a fixed 2000mhz to all cores

- Setting a fixed 2133mhz to memory

- Setting a power-saving mode

 

None helped and just as soon as i enable more than 2 cores the PC just wont boot. No matter what i change and where i am trying to boot to.
