Reset doesn't work Z170A Gaming M3
« on: 20-November-15, 10:21:48 »

Hi guys

Resetting is not working at my motherboard. If I reset from OS it close the system and then hangs with black screen. Even from BIOS if I press "save and exit" it saves and then hangs.  Reset button is causing freeze as well.
Power button is working good, so I use it instead.
I tried setting BIOS to defaults - didn't help.

It was working in the past, i just don't remember when it stopped. Maybe after flashing bios from ver A0 to A1 ?

Do you think it could be hardware problem?
It is just very inconvenient for me to take motherboard out and send it to the service, it's not that a big issue.
Anyone else having this problem?

I had this issue when I disabled onboard sound on my motherboard. Try turning it back on if you have it disabled and see if that works.

Thanks, I knew I could count on you guys.  It was disabled onboard hd audio controller causing it. Weird.
Guess I have to live with few watt in power consumption higher :)
