  1. I have no video card installed, the motherboard is in a barebones state so just the board CPU, RAM, PSU. The board has been tested with 2 known, working PSUs
  2. Despite all this the issue persists. I did notice however that when there is no RAM in the system it starts and beeps continuously for some time before rebooting. Looking up these codes it looks like either 'Graphics Card Not Installed' (unlikely), or more interestingly 'Power Error'. Any ideas on this one?
  3. The motherboard and processor were used before in exactly the same configuration, but had not been used for some time. I will check the contacts tomorrow. Thanks for all your help
  4. Thank you for the very exhaustive reply. I will report back when I have time to do this (possibly tomorrow). The RAM I tested with is Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz, but with no RAM installed the same issue occurs and there is no beep code to indicate the 'No RAM installed' error before the computer restarts I have checked the socket and the only pin that is visibly bent is bent by a fraction of a millimeter (perhaps the width of the pin itself). Is this going to cause an issue? The motherboard has a number of lights labelled 'Phase LED'. When the board is powered on all four lights light, the sequence is red-orange-yellow-green (I assume these are the power levels), then when the fans stop spinning the lights turn off again.
  5. Ah interesting. If I remove the CPU will the board POST with a beep code indicating no processor?
  6. I had a speaker hooked up but the cycling was happening even with no CPU installed. Is this normal?
  7. Hi guys, I am having an issue with a Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 motherboard. When I attempt to start it on a test bed by shorting the two PWR pins, the board begins to power up and fans spin up for less than a second, then the board shuts off. A second or two later without touching any pins the board attempts to start again and repeats. Specs are as follows Cooler Master Elite 500W PSU (known good PSU, runs in my AMD rig) Intel Core i5 2320 (Not known if good) 4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 (known good) The board begins cycling even with no processor or memory installed, when I would expect to hear beep codes indicating this, instead the same issue occurs. I noticed some of the pins on the motherboard socket were bent so I used the edge of a debit card to straighten them, and they are in line perfectly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Euro
  8. Strange. Have you tried reinstalling video drivers?
  9. I think it's Marvel-ous that people have so much to say about this topic
  10. Try using BlueScreenViewer to analyse the crash dump?

  12. Evidently does not need glasses. Oh and also appears to be slightly sarcastic
  13. Probably also has a funny accent
  14. Is probably more like Donkey than Shrek
  15. Gets through about as many vehicles as James Bond
  16. Shipped to Europe sounds very tempting for $155...
  17. Knows how to bake circuit board cookies (and taught me how too!)
  18. I see Dave has posted in the thread, comes here expecting to see the winner announced...nope, just telling us he will draw the winner soon; he sure knows how to build the suspense
