I was leaning away from the mother board because, this is the second board, first one was Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 then i put a EVGA P55 123-LF-E653-KR. They both do the same thing. I'm basically down to the CPU is the only thing that hasn't changed now. Does that make any sense though?
Well if you have eliminated the motherboard, BIOS settings and battery then the only other component that is likely to cause this problem is the power supply. I don’t think that the CPU is likely to cause this problem.
By BIOS setting I mean ensure that the default settings for the BIOS are loaded to ensure that you are not inadvertently overclocking any component. Checking the power supply with a volt meter will not tell you if the power supply is at fault, substitution is the only reliable test that you can do to tell if the power supply is the cause of your problem.
Same thing over here. Asus z68 board, ssd boot drive, 8 gigs gskill sniper ram. System is rock solid stable but from a cold start powers on for a few seconds, powers off, then right back on for an otherwise normal post and boot.
maybe it's something to do with the SSD boot drive..
my P55 board cold starts the same way so far but it might be from a total loss of power the other day, not sure yet.
comes on then goes off then comes back on and runs like a champ.
restarts good too.
Well i have this same issue on my new asus z68 board...
i don't have a SSd....
Its not really that big of deal , but i just want to make sure no
hardware is at fault.
