ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Error A2 - IDE Detect - NO POST or BIOS

Hey guys I just finished my first build and I cant get in to BIOS. No video output is being displayed on the monitor.

I get the error A2 which translates to IDE Detect in Dr Debug. I dont know what this means and when I press F2 it goes to A6 - PCSI Detect - again I have no idea.

PLZ HELP ME!!!

Intel i5 2500k

ASRock Z77 Extreme6

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7850 OC Version

500GB HDD

64GB SSD

NZXT Switch 810

*Using the VGA out connected to the motherboard not the video card because card doesnt have VGA and that is the only cable I have as of now.

Thanks in advance

    Some mobos are set by default to read from the PCIE slot when a GPU is installed. This maybe the case for your mobo. You could either buy yourself a DVI cable, or an adapter, or simply remove the GPU to test this theory. If this proves unsuccessful, your mobo could be shorting. To eliminate shorts, breadboard your mobo.
