Replaced a bad OCZ PSU with a corsair and ran into this problem after installation. Apparently error 19 in the manual says "Pre-memory South Bridge initialization is started."

Specs:
New corsair 750W
Asrock P67 Pro 3
GTX 550ti
i5 2500k
4x 8gb Ripjaws

Things I've tried:

  • Tested with my sister's PSU (600W corsair). Same error 19. Also to note, I used this PSU to make sure my old OCZ PSU was dead. It powered my PC just fine at that time.

  • Took out all the RAM. Same error 19.

  • Tested each stick of RAM individually. Same error 19. Which is confusing because error 19 is about memory.

  • Took out all USB devices and GPU. Same error 19.

  • Connected the PSU to only the CPU and mobo (removed HDD and CD). Same error 19.

  • Removed CPU fan, reapplied thermal paste (arctic silver 5 I believe). Same error 19.


  • I'm thinking it is not the RAMs fault seeing as it can't even detect there is no ram in the mobo. So I'm thinking it is either the CPU or mobo. Is there a way to test if it is one or the either without a spare compatible mobo/cpu?

    I tried googling for other solutions and most people with error 19 either tested each stick of RAM individually and found one that worked or they RMA'd their board. Not sure exactly how long I've had this board but it may be too late to RMA.

    Did the system work with the old PSU?

    No it did not. Or should I say it did, but died about a week ago. Some info on that:
    One night I used my PC normally, went to bed with the PC still on downloading stuff like I often do, and I woke up to see my PC off. It would not turn on. My first instict was that the PSU is dead so I grabbed my sister's PSU to test it on my PC and it powered it just fine. I also tried using the old PSU on my sister's PC and it did not power it so I concluded the PSU was infact dead.

    This is my new PSU:

    Code 19 is a CPU related issue. Check if the 4/8 pin power cable is properly connected.
    When you firstly tested the system with your sister PSU it worked and now it doesn't?

    Ah. I'll mess around with the CPU to try to get it to work. Maybe get a 3rd party fan. I hate this stock fan.

    And yes it no longer works with my sister's PSU.

    I wasn't wearing a static protection band and I was installing the new PSU while on a carpet surface. Could ESD have ruined it somehow?

    Thank you!

    edit: just tested it without plugging in the 8pin and it actually worked (no GPU in it tho. Just no errors on the mobo). So yea I suppose it is related to that connector or the CPU itself.

    bump

    Hoping someone knows how I can test if it is the mobo or CPU that is giving me problems. I don't got a lot of money to fork out right now.
