facing very weird problem.
when I power on my Desktop, it was on, cabinet power LED is on, every fan inside cabinet including cpu fan is spinning and LEDs are on. But no beep, no display, no HD LED activity. Try to reset with reset button, nothing happen. Holding power button for long time, nothing happen.

Switch off ftom PSU and on, it was restarded and...beep...bios on display...HD LED activity...win logo...everything running normal. Dont face any further problem until I need to power it on again.

It is happening each time I try to power on my desktop.

Is it PSU problem? or canbinet switch or something else...?

Psu is corsair cx500, cpu i5 3450, Mb gigabyte B75m-D3H, Zotac 750ti,

disconnect every cabinet power cables. Start your pc by shorting motherboards start pin headers using a screwdriver.

Thanks for your response.
Today I tried with another UPS(APC 600va) and power on 4 times until now without any problem.
Problem is gone, so is it ups related? my previous one is same ups but older.

I am facing really serious problem with my desktop. Don't know what happening...

After whole day running normally when I tried to power on at night same problem arise again.

As before I tried to reset from PSU, but no success. Try to short MB start pin, problem persist. I remove everything ,Sound card, Graphics card, all cabinet fans, all HDDs, dvd drive. remove ram and reset only two 2GB, all the same...after few attempt one display I got with is:
GIGABYTE-UEFI DualBIOS. and it shut down.

repeatedly got this massage and system shut down.

But after more attempt I got this:

It completed hundred % and fail to restart. So situation is not change.

I shut it down. After dinner I power it on again and its boot up normally with beep showing no boot device found.
I add all the HDDs and power on fail to start windows because of hard disk priority is wrong, corrected it with few more bios setup and everything running normal as before.

After happening those furious thing my PC running normally again....I don't shut it down until now...but I have to power it of for Graphic card.

So what happen to my pc?

Your bios got corrupted.So you need to flash the latest bios update from the gigabyte.in website.
If even then problem persists then take it for RMA.OK.
Download the "F15" Bios version and flash your bios with it.

Bios Update Link:GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-B75M-D3H (rev. 1.0)
Thanks for your replay.
But it was recovered from backup bios...system is running(don't know what will happen after shutdown once) still bios update is necessary?

Is there any risk..do I dot it from windows?

Do it from Windows and Yes, Bios update is necessary for maintaining a stable system.OK.

Do update on the same version and see.If it does not give any problems its OK or else send it for RMA.

Thanks.
My desktop run all over the day without any problem.
Run Photoshop and other applications, install gfx card, run 3d mark for benchmarking, playing GTS 5 about an hour.
I don't update bios, not yet, already download it from the link. If I will face same problem tomorrow when try to power on. I will try to update then.

So, Bios don't play much role ones computer inside operating system is that right?

Yesterday I don't face any startup issue. Computer run with a single push of power on button and run all through the but..
at evening I got this:
KbErPj4.jpg

machine restarted and run without any issue until I shutdown on 11 at night.

Today morning also computer run just with a single push of power on button.

So may be I should wait and watch few more days before bios update.

Another fact is, I add 2x2gb Ram(1333) on 26th aug with already added 2x 4gb(1600). so it is 2 different speed on ram on my four ram slot.
Does the new added ram(2x2gb1333) cause these problem by any chance?

Did you use the XMP memory profile so that all the RAM slots work in 1600Mhz.
You should have specified about the change in RAM before in the 1st thread itself.
Did you update your bios profile?

Your 4 rams are running at same speed and latency as bios will force them to but whether they are compatible with each other or not is a different thing. Now I've never heard of bios crashing and recovering because of faulty ram. Anyway, I suspect the motherboard is failing. Sooner or later you need to RMA it. Anyway, if you are suspecting newly added ram modules test one by one using memtest86+ bootable version.

Yes sorry for that.

Not yet.

Thanks, I will do that. Or should I withdraw those modules and run machine for few days without them?

Another question, I can test Ram but is there any way I can test Motherboard?

motherboard has so many componenets so it's kinda hard to troubleshoot. Anyway, you can try with the post beep codes or you can use a diagnostic card which can display bios error codes.

This is the 3rd day I can run computer normally with single push of cabinet button. Which was quite impossible for past 4/5 days.

Got another MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error yesterday almost in the same time day before yesterday.

Thanks, I don't have diagnostic card, actually I am thinking about any software diagnostic tool for motherboard testing.

Anyway decide to wait until get error again.

Maybe the error is due to mismatch of RAM which has different frequencies. I think you might not another error simply because of the Motherboard but because of RAM. So in future try to use same frequency of RAM.OK.

If I face the same trouble again, first thing I will do is remove 1333MHz module and run only with 1600MHz.

Just now got another MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD.

This 3rd day and almost same time of the day.

Today 7:10 PM
Yesterday 6:47 PM
Day before yesterday 7:06 PM

I don't power on in exact time everyday.

did you run memtest86+ on each ram module ? Also don't forget to check HDD for bad sectors or just disable page file for now.

Not yet due to huge work load. for Puja related books and magazine, you know.



No bad sector recorded during auto scan after BSOD. Tried to disable page file and got this :

Should proceed with yes?

Why do you want to disable the page file in the 1st place? Don't do any changes to the Windows OS settings but run it as it is...
Your RAM timings mismatch and that is the reason for BSOD's in the 1st place. So rectify it and everything goes to normal...
