    Re: Gigabyte Award X58 BIOS LED Debug Codes

    It's possible that bent, damaged or misaligned cpu socket pins might be part of the problem.

    As I understand it, when you boot with a Gigabyte dual bios motherboard, there is always some type of communication between the main and the backup bios chips. If this is true, then it seems to me that a problem with the backup bios chip might be part of or causing the problem.

    In Lsdme's Gigabyte dead dual bios thread, it often took some of the users many, many tries to get the "shorted"/jumpered bios pin trick to finally work. In some cases jumpering the bios chip's pins did not work. As I recall getting the psu power on trick to work often took quite a few attempts before it sometimes worked.

    Have you tried booting your system with a minimal hardware setup with the motherboard sitting on a cardboard box outside of the computer case?
    This minimal setup should have all cables and wires disconnected that are not needed for booting into the bios.
    I've seen several instances where a problem with the power on or reset wires or switches prevented systems from booting.
    In a few cases there were booting/posting problems that were caused by the keyboard or usb cable connections.

    Have you tried testing with a different power supply with your motherboard?

      Good day

      I am having trouble with my pc , i am trying to put it up as a normal pc , i have a 1000 w modular power supply, however every time i power the hard drive thru it , it burns out , but at the back of the power supply it states 12v output at the back of each dock.

      I have burnt 4 drives already , is there another way to power my drives off the mother board itself ?
