Asrock 870 extreme3 boot problem

Hi guys,

I've put together a system for a friend, and it won't boot.

I'm getting post code 37 (Displaying sign-on message, CPU information, setup key message, and any OEM specific information.) and onscreen it displays 033 in the lower right corner.

I've been able to let it display the boot screen a couple of times, but it just freezes and I get post code 78(Initializes IPL devices controlled by bios and option rom.)

Could this be the ram memory? Cause only when I switched slots it got to the bootscreen.

  1. Yes it sounds like memory problems. If you switched slots and it booted then one stick must be bad. Have it checked or buy a new stick the same as the good one.
