Hi all,

I just finished putting together my new build, but I'm not able to boot. Dr. Debug shows error code 0x15, which is supposed to correspond to "Pre-memory Northbridge initilization is started." The computer sits at "15" for a few mintues and then just shuts off. I'm not sure what info to include, but here are some specs:

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3
i5 2500k
8gb Kingston HyperX 1600MHz RAM
MSI 560 Ti Hawk

Thanks so much!

pull all pci cards and all memory, see if it gives a different code. add back 1 dimm, see if pc works. if not add back the other dimm. try to get past the 15 and get a code something like no video then add back the 560.

p.s. nice build. it should fly.

Here are other suggestions. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste...

hmm process of elimination is what you need to do first thing is remove your ram and boot up on 1 stick try each stick see if you got defective RAM stick next try your video card if got 2nd one laying around and then see

ah thank you guys so much. i removed the pci cards one by one, and found out that my wifi card was causing the error. i switched the slot, and it boots great! thank you so much again to both of you!
