ASUS P8z68-v Gen 3 Frozen/looping boot... please help Tags: Asus Boot Motherboards Last response: January 22, 2012 2:41 PM in Motherboards Share v0locity January 21, 2012 4:21:20 PM I build this computer about 4-5 days ago. I did not have any problems at all till today. Every time I power it up, it would sit at the asus logo for about 1-2 minutes. The boot_device_led light would come on and stay lit till windows load up. So far I have tried unplugging everything and still have the issue. I have turned off the jmicron controller and yet I still have that problem. I am guessing that the motherboard is trying to find a device to boot and ends up being stuck for a while. Can someone please help me out here, I am not sure what to do at this point.

Have you looked for newer versions of your bios? v0locity January 22, 2012 2:41:42 PM I figured out what was wrong. I had a external hard drive that was plugged into one of the USBs and for some reason, the motherboard was trying to read it during the boot up. I read somewhere else that some USB devices would give the motherboard issues and ended up fixing it by unplugging it. Now it boots super fast. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
