    DG43GT switch On error?

    withmenilu

      Hi guys I just got a DG43GT and each time I switch On the main power the PC boots up with no display and then shuts down. Then when I press the power button the PC successfully boots. Is this normal for Intel motherboards or it mine faulty?? Appreciate your replies....

            have you completly cut the power off for a long time ?

            everytime when I add hardware or anything that need to unplug all wires

            the same problem like yours happens

            I press On, it shuts down and then I press On again

             

            but as you say it happens each time, I didn't come up with that

                      Check the pin-outs on your board , you may have the re-set and the power-on , switched.

                            Found the solution but I'm not prepared to go for it cos most of da time BIOS updates screw up the system

                            It was aparently a BIOS issue. So if you flash the BIOS to the latest version 0035 this bug is history. (AT YOUR OWN RISK)

                              I updated my BIOS to the latest late in the day.  I won't be back at that computer till Friday, so I won't be able to confirm if it fixed it.

                               

                              HOWEVER, my computer didn't blow up at all when I updated the bios (I have never had a problem updating any bios either)

                                IT WORKS !!!! Guys the latest BIOS 0035 (GTG4310H.86A.0035.EB.EXE) works a treat no more switch on errors for me, highly recommend the update to everyone. A BIG THANKS to the intel developpers for implementing this update....

                                  EDIT

                                   

                                  Made a mistake over here folks, when I do a cold start the problem persists. PC shuts down and I have to switch it ON again.But after the (BIOS update) cold start if I disconnect and reconnect the power PC will not start automatically  which is good but as I said earlier when I do a cold start (disconnect power for a long time and switch on) PC shuts down and I have to switch it ON again....

                                    I too did not see any change updating to Bios ver. 0035. If power to the board is interupted either by unplugging the power cord from the wall or hitting the kill switch on the power supply, as soon as power to the board is resumed it will start automatically and shut down again a few seconds later. I then have to press the power botton & the PC will start normally. I guess its no big deal since I figure it's just a characteristic of this board.  Another thing worth mentioning is that when I did the Bios update to ver. 0035, I had to first go into the ME menu by pressing ctrl + p  &  scroll down the menu to "update local firmware" & select "enable" & then exit. Otherwise, the bios update will halt & remain that way indefinitely.  I used the express bios method, but it would halt & I had to hit the kill switch on the power supply to restart the system to start over.
