Hmmm, how about if you take out the GPU (if you have one)and put in the i5 and run of the integrated and see if that works.

with the i3 on the board update the motherboards bios. Your i5 is a newer generation if you dont have the latest Bios update it wont work

No the Bios version F6 supports Ivybridge... how do you know the OP has F6?..... all the OP's symptoms indicate they dont have F6 and this is a Bios issue.

I thought that F6 comes standard with the board?

Maybe if you buy the board now but maybe not if it was bought earlier, even if you buy one now it may be old stock with an older BIOS version. 1st thing to try before adding a new CPU to any motherboard is to update the BIOS it takes a few minutes and means its 1 thing you can then rule out as an issue if things go wrong

download it as jay said or look in the gigabyte folder on your start menu there should be a program called @BIOS use this to do it.
