I am doing an exterior build with a Asus P8Z77-V Mobo, Ivy Bridge I7 37770K CPU, Asus EAH 6850 Radeon card,16 G Corsair 1.5V Mem. No drives connected yet.

I cannot get the Mobo to finish posting. It beeps once then one long beep then 4 short beeps. acording to the manual this mean a hardware component failure. All the onboard LED are out except the BOOT_DEVICE_LED, which is red. I have tried every thing even removing the vidio card and it still beeps and comes up red.The CPU seems OK, The memory checks out. All the other LED's are out.

All the fans are running.

When I removed the vidio card it did not beep for the lost vidio, only for the bad hardware. When I removed the memory it did beep for the memory correctly.

I did a CMOS clear and the only thing left is the BIOS but I cant or know how to do that since I can't start this thing.

Do you have a boot device installed, like a CD drive? It sounds like it is looking for that.

Did you find a solution to this? I just got a new Asus P8Z77-v Pro/Thunderbolt and I'm having the exact same problem....

DDR3-1333/1600 (i7-3770K)

Asus P8Z77-V
4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2600(O.C.)/2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

There are 12 models referring to the Asus P8Z77 so I'm assuming you are refering the V model and not the V Deluxe model.
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...

There are two versions for the Asus EAH 6850 -
EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5 or EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5/V2

The GPU requires a PSU 500 watts or greater (I'd suggest at least 650 watts to ensure free flowing power to all of the hardware and devices attached).

You got 16 gb of ram, 4 x4gb.
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600 CL9 Memory Kit would best suit this rig, make sure you have the kit ram paired.

Your problem would be that the PSU is inefficient and not providing adequate power if it is less than 500 watts.

The reason this is happening is because you do not have a drive with an operating system on it. I have an Asus savretooth z77, and I DO have a DVD drive connected, but I have yet to purchase Windows 7.

On the next screen it asks you to insert the OS disk,or connect a drive with theboot info, and press a key.
