I got the motherboard hooked into my PC (Asrock Z77 Extreme 4) and when I get it to boot I get POST code "4F 96 29" and then it immediately shuts off - what is the issue here? Is it my RAM? Is it my boot drive or something else?
This is the RAM module I'm using: Corsair CMX16GX3M4A1333C9 1333MHz 1.6V
Update: It's most definitely *NOT* a RAM issue - I've tried all slots with 1.6V, 1.35V, and 1.5V and it still is giving me this repeated boot issue. I might wind up RMA'ing the board if I don't hear from Asrock by tomorrow.
g-unit1111, maybe the Extreme4's are a bad line. I am having a lot of trouble with mine too. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/345382-31-build-power...
I think it may be my motherboard, but I'm not sure. I think I also may be RMA'ing mine. I was actually hesitant to buy ASRock as I had heard many bad things about ASRock motherboards and was advised to go with ASUS, but I really wanted the Extreme4. Was thinking of getting a replacement for my defective board, but after reading your thread, am reconsidering.
Yeah I'm starting to think the same thing - I'm waiting to hear back from Asrock tomorrow if they don't respond with anything useful I'm RMA'ing my board and replacing it with the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H. Wouldn't be the first time I've had to RMA a motherboard but it does suck.
