ABIT IP35-E boot issue

For whatever reason this mb has to boot twice before it gets going.

If I shut off the computer and try to restart it, I can hear the fan spin but that is all it does.

I have to keep hitting the start button until it catches and boots and then boots again.

I have the newest bios for the mb.

CPU Type DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2448 MHz (9 x 272)

4 gigs of DIMM1: G Skill F2-6400CL5-2GBPQ
DIMM2: G Skill F2-6400CL5-2GBPQ

Device Description ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

Win Vista Ultimate x64

The MB is set at default settings, also tried increasing the RAM voltage from v1.8 to v1.9 with negative results.

Any suggestions? Tried contacting ABIT with negative results.

Thanks

Try upping MCH voltage. Try 1.29v/1.33v. My bro uses 1.33v MCH with 4x 1Gb Corsair dominators and E6750 @ 3.4Ghz

MCH is chipset or northbridge voltage, not CPU voltage! CPU voltage is called Vcore. Look in your BIOS and you will see the MCH option.

there is a bios update needed. aparantly with the IP35-pro the 1.3 beta bios fixes the dual boot.

but i cant find a download for the XE or any info on beta realeases. can anyone shed some light on this? thanks :)

This is the IP35-E not the PRO.

Not sure if the bios are different but I have the newest one from ABIT for the IP-35 E and it didn't help.

Trying to get anything out of ABIT is a real pain.

Their forums have been down forever and if I try to email tech support, it just bounces back to me.

Whatever email is on their www is nfg.

Supposedly the double boot issue is known to ABIT and has been some time.

They supposedly released fixes in 2007 the last being the a18 version from June 08.

I have this and it still double boots.

I found the bin for the beta bios. Here's the link: http://www.abitshop.eu/bios/m630a.bin

Not sure if I will try it, from what little I could find on it, it supposedly has to Do with EO Stepping issues.

If you find any further info let me know please.

oo cheers for the site the only thing is i wont put it on as i have a XE pro :S so i dont want to dive into the unknown there to much, could be an expensive mistake lol.

well people with the q6600 seem to absoluty love the board. so sounds as if it could be the higher steping not being so much axcepted and supported.

well il keep posted if i find some sort of a problem solve..

This board is a PITA...I have had "cold boot" issue for a long time. Except heating up the mobo doesn't help. Had to restart last night, now board won't POST. Changed memory, no go. Changed PSU, no go. So tonight I took out my 8800GTS and put my old 7600GT in it. It posted, so I put it all back together and set it up...no POST! Took the 8800GTS to my wife's PC...works fine.

Turned this thing off and on so many times now...removed CMOS battery, unplugged it for hours. No go...

Don't want to spend the $100 on a new Gigabyte...but looks like I'll have to. This was my first and only Abit board...glad they went out of business personally!
