Graphics Card no longer booting on Gigabyte z77x BIOS

10 December 2012 - 01:26 AM

Hi all,

Last week I had my system all up and running but now it refuses to accept the Graphics Card. It was running pretty much perfectly with QE/CI and everything but now I can't get the Graphics Card to get a signal out. It won't even show up in POST. To get any signal out, I have to reset the CMOS, reset the BIOS settings and then plug in my monitor to the Int. Graphics port on the motherboard. It will boot fine that way, but obviously, I need the proper output from the card. I had it working last week to these settings:


All that happened last week was I went away for holidays, shut down and came back and now I can't get it to boot in POST at all. I've tried a lot of things but can't get it to work. I know the graphics card works fine because I've put it in another machine and it works. I had a few little problems last week even when it was working when I tried restarting. The bottom PCIEX8 slot is a little bust, could that be causing the problem?

Any suggestions?

Just won't boot

It would be really great if someone would be able to help me out on this because its been nothing but a headache and I've tried every forum suggestion I've found in my research before this.

I managed to install it but then it went down straight after I tried #####. When I boot on my main SSD drive, it goes into a kernal panic which in verbose mode stops at:

When I try and boot it off #####, I get the grey screen loading for a while and then it comes up with:

I've tried a lot of different bootflags for the SSD: -f, -F, GraphicsEnabler=No, UseKernelCache=Yes and a few others. It won't allow me to boot in safe mode on either ##### or the SSD either.

Originally I thought it was the USB as it said the installer was corrupt, but I formatted and rewrote with ##### and it still doesn't work.

Would really appreciate if someone would be able to help me out on what else I can try?

I'm running on:

Intel i3770k
Gigabyte z77-UP5th
Geforce 570 GTX
Sandisk 240gb SSD

I'd be happy to start from scratch and reformat/partition, but I can't get to Disk Utility so I'm just stuck.

EDIT: Ah, I've just found that Tonymac stuff is not supported here. In all honesty, I'm happy to move onto other ways of making this work, but I'm having trouble finding information on how to fix this issue.
