Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming 1080 Not Displaying on Initial Boot

Q: Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming 1080 Not Displaying on Initial Boot

NOTE: I did have a thread for this topic up before but I marked it as solved and thought that I needed to create a new topic. If I was mistaken please let me know. I don't want to violate any policies. I honestly just didn't know what to do in this case. I wanted to delete this thread and bring back the "solved" thread but couldn't find a delete option. I sincerely apologize for any offense or inconvenience.

Hey everyone,

What is happening is that every time I boot my machine I get no display. On a restart it immediately picks it up. Additionally there is no display on wake from sleep.

I posted about this about a month ago and then sent in my card for RMA. They said they found no problems though. I'm pretty worried because my system runs two 4GB Windforce 770s in SLI with no problems. Some people have suggested swapping the DisplayPort cable but I don't see that doing anything.
Here are my system specs as best as I can give right now:
CPU: i5-3570 @ 3.40GHz OC'd to 4.0 GHz (note I made the OC change AFTER sending the card in)
Motherboard: ASrock Z77 Extreme4 BIOS P2.0
HDD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB
PSU: Corsair HX1000w

Things I have tried:
-Switching PCI-e slots
-Changing DisplayPort ports on the graphics card
-Upgrading to Windows 10 Anniversary
-Tried the three latest NVIDIA drivers
-Uninstalled the Xtreme Gaming Utility
-Confirming Fast Boot is turned OFF in BIOS

Any help would be appreciated. I'm feeling really stuck here. They say they'll ship me a new one if their technical support can't help anymore (they were the ones who suggested sending the card in in the first place though and even though I updated my ticket with them I'm guessing they won't have much to suggest).

Thanks in advanced. Let me know if you need more system info.

hi folks
id just like to pick some brains on this 1 plz.
i hav just upgraded my mobo to a gigabyte 880GA-UD3H but i had a friend do the fitting.
he put my x-fi extrem music soundcard back in too and i was wondering if there is realy any point in using the sound card as its a brand new mobo and i would think that the onboard HD audio may be better than the old x-fi card.
any suggestions folks??

A:x-fi xtreme audio or gigabyte 880GA-UD3H onboard

Only way for you to determine that is to try both and see which sounds better to you. If you have anything resembling half way decent speakers or headphones I'm betting that you'll still use your X-Fi.

If you're connecting digitally (optical or coax) to a receiver then it doesn't matter which you use, as it will be the receiver that will be doing the digital/analogue conversion.

My computer won?t start and keeps going into an infinite boot loop, the error codes 15 c5 32 shows up and it stops at error 32 which is CPU PEI Initialization. The only way to temporarily fix this is if I remove the RAM then put it back, it sometimes then turns back on but if I turn it off it will go into the boot loop again. I have recently updated my BIOS to F8 version(the latest version) using the Gigabyte update app to try and fix this problem but that did not fix anything. I have been looking everywhere for this solution and I could not find a clear one that works for me. I never had this problem up until I put the Samsung SSD 960 Evo in and cloned it and then made it the boot drive, the SSD works fine but this boot loop doesn?t seem to go away. I built this computer and never had any problems until this boot loop.
I have tried using different sticks of RAM and the computer seems fine for a day but then the boot loop comes back.
If anyone knows a permanent fix for this boot loop problem it would be super helpful thanks.

Computer specs:
Mobo: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 7
OS: Windows 10
1TB HDD Western Digital
250GB SSD Samsung Evo 960
GTX 1070 Gigabyte G1
CPU: i7-4790
12 GB of RAM ( 2 sticks of 4GB + a stick of 8GB)
F8 BIOS (latest one available)
PSU: RM850i Corsair
DVD Drive

Edit: So I unplugged the computer for 10 minutes and left it be then tried again, and now it turned on again, I?m thinking the issue could possible the PSU (Corsair RM850i) but I?m not too sure.

Hey everyone. I just purchased a Gigabyte GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming and although it works fine there is one issue I'm having that I'm having a lot of trouble troubleshooting. Basically, on first boot up the monitor acts like it isn't getting a signal. Upon a restart it immediately kicks into gear. The LEDs and fans are running the whole time even on first boot. It's just not getting the video signal at first. I plan on flashing my VBIOS even though there's only one release available as others have suggested trying it. I feel like this is the only option I have though and am wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue or insight onto what might be causing it? I used to have 2 Gigabyte Windforce cards in SLI and never had this issue. I'm on the latest NVIDIA driver and have an ASRock Motherboard. Unfortunately I'm at work and don't have the model number. Gigabyte's support suggested switching PCI-e slots but that did nothing as well.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced!


A:Strange Issue with Gigabyte GTX 1080

Read other 16 answers

Hi. Sorry for my bad English.
Windows removes U2417H when power is switched off.
I have:
Main monitor U2417H, connected by DP - DP Mini cable.
Second monitor Asus, connected by HDMI cable (and has no DP input).
Video card Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming (has 3 DP and 1 HDMI outputs).
Windows 7 x64.
If I press power button on the U2417H, Windows think that I removed device from computer.
As result: a) Windows moves all windows, etc to second monitor, so all windows lose position/size. b) if second monitor is disconnected, Windows think that I have no monitors. and some programs may crash (windows position/size problem also is here).
So, each time I need restore all positions/sizes of all windows.
How is posiible to avoid this behaviour? I want that Windows won't remove the monitor when I switched power off.
BTW, when I use HDMI cable instead DP, then the behaviour is right. But I used HDMI for second monitor. If I will use a DP -> HDMI adapter, will it fix the behaviour? And is there any difference between DP-DP and DP-DP mini? Maybe I can change something in Windows for fix the problem?

Blumey, extreme yes! Thibk its safe to say that should keep you going for the forseeable at least.
Depending on your budget, a couple of suggestions. The mem you could up to 1066 Mhz, if the mobo will take it- I know a lot has been written on this, but personally I did a fair few tests, and found it gives about 5-10% increase, depending what its used for. You may want to look fo rSLI reay mem too- this can give a slight boost.
For the CPU a Q6600 will oveclock significantly, and can come pretty close to a stock 9650, so theres a maybe saving there.
As for hard drives, Very much a personal choice, but Idont find that the hi speed raps give a hge amount of benefit, even raided, over a normal 7200 disk. However, any increase is an increase.

As for themobo, I use a BFG 880i SLI. To date, it has behaved wonderfully, has oc options away and above what I need, and runs stable. Not the cheapest, newest or best board out, but as a recomendaton, I would use it again happily.
Simarly, the BFG 8800 range come in an OC2 version, which is a factory overclocked card. In price, these are not too far off other 8800s, but will give a fair boost to any system (oced by about 60 mhz, as i recall), and i did find it was slightly faster. They also happen to run well with the BFG mobo.

A:Building a new Xtreme gaming system. Need a lil help

It seems to be overkill to me!

Your looking at four to five thousand when all is said and finished. Make it two thousand and then upgrade your system in two years!

If you wait a couple months the 45 nm mid range quad cores will be out! Or you could simply go with the Quad Core 6600 and overclock it to 3 ghz no sweat. It will easily burn through all games at least for the next two years until you upgrade!

Also, go with two 8800 gt 512's! The ultras have only the slightest advantage over them for a much higher price.

4 gigs DDR2 1066 would probably be better!

I would invest in a top of the line motherboard! This way it will be easy in the future to upgrade! Personally I'm a big fan of Gigabyte.

1200 Watts is overkill. Unless you planning on running eight hardrives and four video card 800 Watts should be plenty! Aim for good efficiency!

If your feeling adventurous you could try a solid state hardrive which loads Vista in 2.6 seconds!

Overall it really depends on your pocket. If you feel like you can waste a grand or two then just get the best of the best. For performance though its not worth the extra cash.

Tom's hardware has some excellent charts and hardware and tons of info!

Hi guys,

This is my first post in this forum since I have not received any help from elswhere.
You guys are my only hope.

Okay, so I recently bought two G1 Gaming GTX970 graphics cards.
The first driver install went bad by windows using its own drivers, so I got the Display Driver Uninstaller from 3dguru, scrubbed the drivers in safe mode. After restart windows still used its own drivers at first but everything worked and I updated with the latest nVidia drivers.

Now to the issue...
After gaming for some time graphically demanding games (AC:Unity, FarCry4) the PC would freeze and I would have a BSOD on my hands. Interestingly enough this has happened with nVidia supported games, but I've managed to play Alien: Isolation for an extended period of time which is AMD supported. Have not had any problems with Borderlands Pre Sequel (nVidia supported) either but it's also not as heavy on the GPU. When the BSOD has happened it has happened approx within an hour of gaming, sometimes within minutes. The BSOD does not happen when I'm watching movies or browsing the net or working on the PC, just when gaming heavy does it occur, I run the system SLI enabled. I'm going to include two crash dumps below.

By the looks of it, it seems to be a driver issue, so what are my options here?
I've reinstalled the drives but still the problem has persisted.
Any help or insight into the BSOD errors I'm getting would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

A:BSOD with Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX970 in SLI while gaming

I've been having a very similar issue, I've only got the one Gigabyte 970 G1, and I've only really tested 2 games (AC Unity and Civ Beyond Earth) and while playing both after usually a few hours they'll freeze then I'll get a bsod. They're always Bug Check Code: 0x00000124 and all have the Crash Address: ntoskrnl.exe+4ae61c.

I've run windows memory diagnostic with no results, I've reseated my card, performed multiple clean driver installs, checked temperatures with no problems. I can't figure out what's causing it and this is the only similar problem I can find online. I really wish I could help but it seems we're in much the same boat

I just got my new PC running with the Gigabyte Z170x Gaming 7 motherboard and Intel Skylake 6700k. My memory is Corsair Vengeance LPX and it's base speed is 1633. With XMP enabled it runs at 2400.

So once I got everything installed and running I went back into my UEFI BIOS and enabled XMP to profile 1 (the only option) and the memory now runs at 2400 as expected. However, now the CPU is automatically bumped up to 4.2GHz instead of the stock 4.0GHz. If I disable XMP the overclock remains at 4.2 even though XMP is disabled and the memory is back to 1633. I wanted to run XMP but I didn't think it would force a CPU overclock also.

I found this on another site about this issue:

"The most troublesome "feature" of the firmware is that if you enable an XMP profile or change the memory multiplier, the CPU is automagically overclocked by applying the highest turbo multiplier?normally only used if one core is busy?to all turbo states, no matter how many cores are active. For a Core i7-6700K, this tweak means that if more than one core is active, you'll be running at 4.2GHz rather than 4.0GHz. A lot of modern boards play games like these with multipliers, but what makes the Gaming 7's behavior particularly nefarious is that the firmware shows the default non-overclocked Turbo multipliers while actually using the overclocked ones. To make matters worse, there's no single config option, say "Enhanced Turbo," that disables this behavior. Instea... Read more

Hello All! This is my first post here and I hope you guys can help me.

It all started when I bought my new graphics/SSD and I did a fresh install.
My RAM/CPU/HardDrive/MoBo are still the same from the start.
After installing my new GPU and SSD, I noticed that my chrome browsing it slow and sluggish. Seeing my CPU peaks just by using it. Anyway, I decided to download all the necessary drivers for my MoBo, CPU, and Graphics card. All seems ok but I am having a hard time playing games like Darkest Dungeon, Dota 2, SOMA, Hearthstone and Witcher 3(I bought my card just for this game, I know it can't handle ultra. I just want it to be at High FPS with decent graphics.).
All of them I have experienced BSOD. My attached minidumps have included my recent crash with Witcher 3 and my other problem of crashing while trying to install Gigabyte OC Guru II(Wanted to install so I can OC both my CPU and GPU to get high details 60+ FPS, currently running on medium 45 fps).

TLDR: Freezes/decreased performance while gaming and Crashes when installing Gigabyte Extreme engine both from disc and website.

Thank you so much.

A:How much does Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6670 2gb ddr3 is good for gaming?

well depends on how much of a sacrifice youre prepared to make to game settings in order to make them play.
as it stands that card will not allow you to max out current games on their highest settings at 1080p youd be looking at low to medium.

basically its not a great card for modern games, when it was released 2 years ago it wasnt great then.

whats your budget? as you could get a very good modern card for little money.

My system has been working without serious problems for about 8 months now... I built it myself from parts. Now suddenly (without anything having changed as far as I can tell) I am getting very frequent blue screens or hangs so often that make using the computer impossible.

Usually, while computer is idle, or I am browsing the net, or watching a video from disk, or even playing a video game (but that less often), the screen will freeze, go all black or grey for a few seconds, then will go back to normal with a windows notification "Display driver stoped responding and has been recovered". This may happen multiple times in the space of minutes, or I may be playing a game for an hour without problem and then it appears... its more rare for it happen in-game. Also, often instead of the above I get a blue screen with STOP error message 0x00000116 "atikmpag.sys" that says "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed".

So far I have tried

- running from a different hard drive with a different instalation, with different sets of drivers, windows updates, etc.
- removing any extra equipment from the psu so that I ease any possible lack of power
- reverting to older drivers and installing the latest ones
- changing the power cables for the card

There is a problem with video displaying (and sometimes flash player), specifically there is pixelation in dark or gray scenes (the problem is the same, regardless of the video player ). Ironically, this isn't the case in games I've tested and Furmark showed no artifacts. I've tried every possible troubleshooting(tried another hdmi cable, changed the settings in nvidia panel, installed older drivers etc). The problem cannot be resolved. I hope if any of you had the same problem, could give me another approach. I have attached a photo (a screenshot won't show the problem in most monitors) to see what I mean.

I've attempted various solutions, including all the useless support Windows 10 moderators have to offer (Run SFC /scannow does not work, nor does disabling audio devices).

In addition, I have disabled all CPU power options and uninstalled Geforce drivers + network drivers only to get a slight decrease in lag as noted in the photos below which were taken after all solutions were attempted.

I am NOT getting the results I expected at all. So many people are telling me how I should be getting more on maxed out settings, and how they have similar builds or the same and are getting much higher. Right this moment I may get near 300fps with no stream, with the stream I'll be around 200 and get a constant 1-2 variance (my fps vs servers fps if I understand it correctly). I almost had the same fps with no variance on my old rig (i7 960 & Radeon HD 5870)

I'm so lost on what could be wrong..this is brand new.

My computer began directing my searches to non-google sites and bringing up popups. I was running windows defender and AVG. I use firefox for browsing. All are up to date. Running Windows Vista Home in a newer HP desktop, wired connection. I was not able to update any programs (ad aware, spybot, AVG, windows defender, etc). Also, when I run hijack this I get an error message indicating that hijack this was "denied write access to the hosts file". Hijackthis automatic analyzers do note some problems files but when I check them and click fix, they are still there after I scan again (including after a reboot). That line is:"O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [Launcher] %WINDIR%\SMINST\launcher.exe"I (ignorantly) ran combofix already as directed by a related forum post. It indicated that there was a trojan infection, restarted the computer and instructed me to re-run. I did and it created a log, though I understand I'm not to post that unless directed.

So my friend tried to boot his PC this morning. It would show the initial boot screen, but when it starts to boot the HDD the screen goes blank.
I have tried using the CD to boot the PC and it works just fine. I moved the hard drive to another computer and it still goes blank after the initial boot screen.
I attempted to boot Windows in safe mode by using the F8 key. The choices screen did show up, but when I chose the safe mode and pressed enter the screen went blank. Done that on both computers.
The OS is Windows XP home edition. Using one monitor for both PCs (he only has one). His usual PC is an old DELL and the other PC is one I built about 3 years ago.

Anyone got any ideas?

Having a small problem with my PC. I have been getting BSOD's between Log-in screen and starting a program when I boot up from a cold start. I have to power off and then power on, after which I can use my PC with hassle, until I turn it off for an extended period of time.

I have run memtest86+ for 8 passes, checked HDD's etc. Can't find any hardware issues, although I have been assuming it's a driver problem or corrupt Windows install.

This is a clean install (formatted HDD) using Windows 7 Ultimate.

- OS version: Windows 7 Ultimate - 64-bit
- CPU: Intel Core i5 750
- MOBO: MSI P55-GD80
- GFX: MSI ATI R5770 Hawk
- RAM: 4GB Corsair XMS3 Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG
- PSU: Cooler Master 650 Watt

- driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
- specified file in BSOD varies
- occurs on start up from cold boot, between log-in and soon after logging in

Any help would be appreciated.

Files attached.

Please note that the uploader didnt accept the .zip part extension, so they have been swapped, please rename accordingly:

Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2.001.zip -> Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2.zip.001

Sorry for the hassle.

I built my computer last November and have been getting BSODs which include Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area and Memory_Management. These blue screens occur shortly after my initial start up and once they have passed they don't occur again until I shut down the computer completely or hibernate the computer. I have run all sorts of antivirus, run memory tests, and checked the registry all with no success. So i'm at a bit of a loss.

A:Problem on Initial Boot

Read other 9 answers

Hi guys. Just built a pc and having trouble with Win 7 on the initial boot up. I keep getting

Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

I've been in the BIOS and select 1st boot fron dvd/cd drive. The dvd drive powers up and spins the win 7 disc but keep getting the same message. I've tried swapping the sata cables.

Been looking at it for nearly 2 hours now. HDD has power (recognised in BIOS) and it is a new official Win 7 installation disc.

Please help

I know it sounds unlikely, but it is possible the disc is damaged or poorly written.

You can get an ISO copy (completely legitimately) from the Dell link listed in point 1 here (the fact that it is Dell is not material - Dell just happens to host the download):

Hi, I will soon be purchasing an Alienware X51, but I am choosing to separately buy a Crucial SSD to install the OS on. I can find videos on YouTube detailing how to physically install the SSD, but it would be very helpful if someone could give me to a detailed guide on exactly how to install the OS on the Crucial SSD upon the initial booting of the computer (without having to first install it on the HDD.) I am very new to this, so I would really appreciate help.

A:Installing OS Onto An SSD On Initial Boot

Are you sure the Alienware will arrive with no installed operating system?

I don't know anything about Alienware's specific policies, but that would be uncommon if true.

Is the Alienware supposed to come with an ordinary Windows installation disc?

Or is it coming with no operating system whatsoever and you are buying a Windows install disc separately?

More details needed.

An install to an SSD is the same process as an install to an HDD. You need an install disc of some type.

If the machine will have an operating system on an HDD when it arrives and you want to install to an SSD, you would have 2 basic choices:

1: transfer the HDD installation to the SSD through either a cloning or imaging process, probably using a third party program such as Macrium Reflect. This would not be a "clean install".

2: Do a clean install, wiping out everything that is on the Alien HDD. You could do that by using a Windows installation disc you bought elsewhere. You'd activate by using the Product Key that came with the installer. Or by using a burned DVD you made after downloading a Windows installation ISO from Digital River, in which case you'd activate using the Product Key found on the Certificate Of Authenticity sticker on the PC.

I really hope someone can help me because this problem is driving me insane. Every time I power up my PC, it freezes after I reach the desktop. Sometimes this happens almost instantly and sometimes it may work fine for about 5 minutes but it always hangs at some point. Now here's the crazy thing- after it freezes and I hit the reset button everything works fine. So this only happens when I initially boot up my PC. It's extremely annoying because every time I start my PC I have to either hit restart once I get to desktop (if it doesn't hang first) or do a manual reset. This is a clean install of Windows 10. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recently on my initial boot up whenever I access the first program (no matter what) the program screen comes up and then it hangs up. I have run all the clean programs - AdAware - Internet Washer - Disk Clean UP - Disk Defrag- Cleared the Caches. All to no avail. I Control-Alt-Delete the program and then everything works fine the rest of the day. That same process works even if I have not accessed a program. I "Restored" it back a couple of months and still the same thing happens. Help

A:Programs hang after initial boot up

You might be jumping the gun... If everything is not done loading yet, it might cause the first program to lock up when trying to open it. Some programs load in the background and it appears everything is already up. That might not be so. Post a hijackthis! log and we can check it to see if there are excess things loading at startup.
