Shutting down and sleep/hibernating issues

Hello, I'm having a problem with my computer. I recently built a new computer around 3 months ago and now sometimes when shut down my computer the screen shuts off as well as the mouse and keyboard but my fans, heat sink fan, and motherboard seems to be running still. On the motherboard debug screen it displays 05 which means: OEM initializing before microcode loading (not sure what that means).
Additionally when I turn the computer to sleep mode it does the same thing but the debug displays 03 which means: North bridge initializing before microcode loading (again I have no clue what this means).

Additional info: I already ran a memory test and that had no errors and I checked the capacitors on the motherboard and those seem fine. I also tested the PSU on its on and its working just fine.

My build:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (running on SSD)

SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 128GB SATA III

HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"

Graphics Card: GIGABYTE GV-R797D5-3GD-B Radeon HD 7970 3GB

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

Processor: Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

PSU: CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W

  1. I know it sounds like a pain but a reload might be the fastest way to get around this. I figure you can spend a day or so skimming the net/forums or spend 20-50min backing up your data (128gig SSD isnt much) and reload (with a SSD its freakign fast!)

    Just my 2 cents
  2. Hi,

    I seem to have exactly the same issue.

    Don't think reloading has worked for me.

    My Config is the same as yours except that I have a different SSD.

    Does anyone else have solution for this?

  3. I had this problem recently. it was freezing, slow booting up and not shutting down properly. I know this isn't very techy or scientific but I swapped my RAM sticks round and suddenly my PC is behaving again. Dunno why.

    I am having the same issue, have you updated the mobo drivers? I guess what they mean by reloading is reinstalling Windows? Please keep us up to date with this issue. PLEASE!!

    Nope, still have the same issue. Doesn't bug me much except that I have to physically switch off the machine once the shutdown process is finished.
  7. Tell you the truth, since this morning I have reseated my cpu, moved ram from a1 and b1 to a2 and b2, used the jumper to reset the bios on my mobo and third times the charm.

    I don't have any more issues with my pc shutting down, just amazing feeling afterwards lol. You should try this too.
