Hello -I just installed new Gigabyte P67x-D3-B3 MB and core i5 2500k into existing case and peripherals. Oh and the memory is new as well -8GB G-skill DDR3 1600MHz. The system powers up, my video card posts info as normal, then it goes to a Gigabyte screen with options to show: Post, Enter Boot Menu, Setup, Q-Flash, etc. That is when things go bad. Whatever option is selected the screen just scrolls black and white bars. Almost looks like a bar code for lack of a better description.

Other system elements: nVidia GeForce9600 w/512mb, PSU = 400W is a little older but has 24pin connector and only 1 x 4pin 12V but that should work ok for normal use according to MB manual. Crucial 128gb SSD which I had running in old system.

Any direction would be appreciated -thx

Did not locate such model listed at GIGABYTE website.

Assemble only the necessary components to test via POST.
Processor, HSF (Heat Sink Fan), video card and a single memory module.

State if any BIOS beep error(s) emitted.

Sorry - is GA-P67X-UD3-B3. The only thing connected is bare essentials. Video card and SDD. I've tried each dimm by itself, same results in any config. If I tab from main screen it will show post screen: CPU Core i5 3.4Ghz, the mem amount (4 or 8GB depending if I have 1 or both dimms installed) and shows mem OK, and then ID's the SSD. Shortly after that it starts scrolling but it's actually just scrolls so fast it looks like vertical lines.

...and no beep codes

Disconnect SSD during POST check. Not essential.
Never connect any HDD/SSD during POST check.

GIGABYTE mobos typically emit a single beep if POST is successful.
If only the essentials correctly connected for POST check
and
Still no successful single beep, then processor or mobo is defective/damaged...

If you are attempting to run the SSD containing previous operating system,
Recommend a clean install.

Does the hard drive have an OS on it from a previous system....that would have all the wrong chipset drivers? If so you'll need to do a repair install of the OS.

Well, making some progress. Unplugging SSD allowed me to get into the Bios setup screens. Here is the next problem, every key input in navigating the setup screen is extremely slow. It responds but literally takes 3 or 4 seconds to scroll through bios screen options. I was able to change boot order to CD/DVD as I want to boot from Syamntec BESR disc. Its taking 20 minutes to boot that CD, when it usually takes 2 minutes.

If/where applicable,

Check SATA connector(s) in use.
Use a wired keyboard and/or mouse.
Check and/or configure all CMOS/BIOS menu settings.

Others can take over responding to this thread.
