hey guy i have a problem. i bought a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P motherboard and was planning to use it with a i5 760 cpu but for some reason i cant get it to boot. i know they are both working because with the same build but with a i3 530 i get the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P to boot and the i5 760 works on a GIGABYTE GA-H55M-S2V. i try updating the bios on the motherboard but cant get it to boot.i have a 700 watt power supply so i dont think it is a lack of power. i have tried G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 and CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600. Any suggesting. Thanks
I've the same i5 but in a gigabyte ga-p55-usb3 and does the same thing ... it fires up and shuts down in 2 secinds. The store has tested and said it's fine; I've bought a new 760w p/s and it still does the same thing. It used to work and then stopped.
Solved!!! The motherboard must have shifted on the stand-offs that hold the m/b in place. A contact was causing the psu to shut down. I suspect the same fault occurs in the case [sic] of game95122. Check your contacts and stand off placement. Run it on the box for 10 minutes.
