    Random Reboots After Motherboard Replaced


    Hey guys

    My PC was running fine till one day motherboard's onboard lan stopped working !

    I gave my motherboard for RMA and in return they gave me a repaired motherboard.

    Since the change of motherboard the system randomly reboots itself.

    Tried doing a clean install of OS, updated BIOS, updated drivers, checked temps but still it reboots.

    Note: Tried windows xp for dew days and the system stayed fine without reboot.

    Old Motherboard : Gigabyte Z68x-UD4-B3
    New Motherboard : Gigabyte Z68xp-UD4
    OS : Windows 8 Pro

    Uploading the System logs too.

    Please help !

    Looks like there was a major BIOS update issued (for your replacement mobo) on 3/6/2013:

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68XP-UD4 (rev. 1.0)

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68XP-UD4 (rev. 1.3)

    Looks like it applies to v1.0 and v1.3 of your new mobo. Please ignore if current.

    Could be that the repaired mobo was just tested (minimally) and shipped back out to you. If you can't localize the trouble with help from others on this board, I'd be RMAing that one as well. Good luck.
