Everything runs, but won't POST, ERROR CODES (Asrock Extreme4 z77)

Ok guys.. I got my build all together and done.. but of course there's always gotta be problems (but not smoking yet)....

I start my comp up, mobo shows 19, then switches to code 15.... turns itself off... reboots up... with code 10 on.... will stay running forever (with all fans on, and everything in the computer running) on code 10... All this time, never putting out any signal to my monitor. I haven't even gotten to load windows on it or nothing. It won't POST.

I looked up my ram and it isn't the 'supported memory' ? Like 2 letters off -_-... could that be it?

So annoying to spend all this money on it, and have it work but have errors and nothing able to do about it...

Looked in book and the code 15 and 19 are just north/south bridge initialization. Code 10 is PEI Core initialization.. Sigh. PLEASE HELP!


I have reset CMOS.

I bought a sandy bridge cpu (a celeron G530) incase the bios was out dated, still didn't work (I have the 3770k ivy bridge that's why I bought the sandy)

Reseated everything, including the processor(s)

No pins broken/bent.

PSU is fine.

I have reset the MB also.

I tried diff ram from my other comp and it drew a few beeps from the MB, and a code 55.

I pulled everything out and did a test on a cardboard box, so it ruled out the MB shorting on the case.

I have incompatible ram atm, (only like 2 numbers off on the model number) so I have some compatible ram on its way. Could this be the problem causing this strange sequence of codes? Incompatible ram?

take ram out, power on, the system should start beeping like crazy,

take the power out of the GPU and again see if it beeps like crazy

if no beeps on either, the system is not even looking for either RAM or GPU,

take mb out of case and run it on a flat bed, literally nothing plugged in other than the gpu, ram and mb power, see it it posts.

I have tried all variations of this stuff, and I still get the same sequence of codes, and no beeps.

I tried without ram.. without gpu.. Still all make the same sequence.

Pretty much the only thing I haven't done is the compatible ram which is on its way... Maybe the psu.. I have the seasonic x series x650 gold PSU. Seems fine but I may just be dumb.

I was having the EXACT same problem earlier this month after installing a new evga board.

This might help you.

I never get the chance to hit f1 like they did in that thread. I never get bios flashes or post, nothing.

AND AGAIN, some more disappointing news.

Got my 'compatible' ram in today, system does 19, 15, then reads 55 and shuts down. Starts back up and repeats.

Code 55 is 'Memory not installed'

Any ideas/thoughts?
