Booting Issues Asus Maximus V Extreme Tags: Asus Motherboards Last response: February 12, 2013 5:08 PM in Motherboards Share schismlion February 12, 2013 1:03:34 AM Hey, so I am working on my second build, and I can't get it to start up. It shows a q code error of 56, or "Invalid CPU type or speed." It's an Asus Maximus V Extreme mobo with i7 3770k processor and 4*8 Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz blah blah. I think it's an issue with the RAM, but the cards are listed as compatible in the user guide. Any suggestions, other than swapping out RAM cards?

Ask ! Get the answer Z1NONLY a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 1:34:04 AM Well the error code says CPU and it could very well be the CPU. (or the "speed") However, I would still test other things that are easily tested. First try a BIOS reset because it's quick and easy. (And free) If that doesn't fix the problem, simplify your rig down to the bare minimum: Operating system drive. (no other drives) One stick of RAM. No video card. (Use the on-board graphics) If the problem persists, try another stick of RAM. (Then try different slots if needed, but only one stick of RAM at a time) However, if that solves the problem, power down and add one component, then test. Repeat, until your computer stops working again, then RMA that last piece you added to the mix before it stopped working. (or at least take a very close look at that part.) schismlion February 12, 2013 1:51:49 AM Problem is persisting. After sitting on 56 for a second or two, it moves on and gets to 99 (super IO initialization) before it completely stops and restarts. scout_03 a b Ĉ ASUS a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 1:55:21 AM i would remove everyrhing from the case and try to boot on a cardboard to see it you have boot or error . schismlion February 12, 2013 2:00:07 AM It does the same thing out of the case. scout_03 a b Ĉ ASUS a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 2:14:49 AM then i would carefully check the cpu and the motherboard socket for bent pins,also if you have a older intel cpu that could work with that board i would use it to update the bios . schismlion February 12, 2013 2:18:08 AM No bent pins and the only other processor I own is not compatible with this mother board... scout_03 a b Ĉ ASUS a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 2:31:16 AM if bought it from a local store i would bring them all the parts and ask them to check with it wont work or give you new parts . schismlion February 12, 2013 2:39:13 AM I bought everything online. Well, dang. scout_03 a b Ĉ ASUS a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 2:42:08 PM i seen on the forum a similar issue and the poster found a bad ram stick,do you have a spare ram you could use to test the motherboard ?

Did you try everything I listed? schismlion February 12, 2013 3:30:33 PM Yep. I'm pretty sure it's the RAM cards fault. Tested them on a friends motherboard that we knew worked and they failed. What a waste. Thanks anyway guys scout_03 a b Ĉ ASUS a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 3:31:58 PM time for rma . Z1NONLY a b V Motherboard February 12, 2013 3:40:31 PM schismlion said:Yep.

Thanks anyway guys Every single stick of RAM fails by itself?... one at a time?....Or only when you try and use them all at the same time? schismlion February 12, 2013 3:59:48 PM Every last stick.

If none of them work in another computer either, it's time for an RMA. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumASUS maximus extreme . How to improve RAM limit!?
