My motherboard a Gigabyte GA_P35_DS3p is stuck in a reboot loop.
The board reboots after the bios startup has been displayed. I can go into the bios OK and it doesn't reboot. All hard disk drives and DVD drives power up and are detected correctly if connected. The CPU fan is turning fine. Temps in Bios seem fine.
I have tried the following to fix the problem not in actual order:
I reset the CMOS information then went into the BIOS and did a load fail safe defaults
I went into the BIOS and did a load optimum defaults
I removed all cables from the computer except for the power and it still reboots.
I disconnected every hard disk and optical drive
I tried the graphics card in the second PCie slot
I tried a different graphics card.
I have 4gb RAM. I tested with just 2 sticks in dual channel, then tried just the other 2 in different slots.
I removed all the power cables from the motherboard and reconnected - still no good.
I removed every cable from the motherboard except power and it still rebooted.
Is the board dead? Shall I RMA it?
