Msi Z87-GD65 Failing to boot [debug code 55]

i was trying to OC the Cpu through Oc genie and i did this by turning the PC off, pressing the OC genie button and turning the PC back on. Upon turning it back on i lost my HDMI signal, and after about 5 seconds PC rebooted and is now STUCK at a error code 55 in the Debug Led indicator.

WHAT DO I DO :(

  1. reset cmos
  2. CMOS reset. it shoudl be in your manual on how to do so. Its usually either a button or moving the button battery and putting it back in. It can also be a jumper
  3. For an unknown reason, it seems to havee fixed itself!

    All i did was goto my other BIOS (Multi Bios Switch ;) ) and stayed on that for a while and went back to the previous failed BIOS and it booted!

    Now is this likely to be a permanent FIX? Will this happen again..? Can anyone tell me what caused it and Finally Should i RMA the MB and get a new one..? *i'm still under cover*

    Is that to be done while the PC is on or when it is turned of?

    a cmos reset is supposed to happen when the PC is off. your manual should dictate how its performed.

    EDIT: It seems to have fixed itself :P it was due to enabling the XMP setting in the BIOS! Upon disabling the XMP i was able to boot up fine!
  7. I had the same problem last night!

    FIX: Switch ram slots to 3&4 and boot up!

    This should now boot to bios, it will take a moment or 2 if it is the first proper boot
  8. Your original problem "error code 55" caused by bent pin in the CPU socket. Check it and repair it. Then should be work again properly.

    errr...its not a bent pin or the CPU socket. It was related to my XMP RAM. when i used OC genie it would automatically apply the XMP setting on my RAM sticks On to 2133mhz BUT the problem was that Corsair had flashed the wrong cas timing onto the RAM. it should have been 9 but they flashed a 7. that was the cause for my boot loop. once booted i applied default and then manually OC'd RAM to 2133.
