im in the middle of my fist PC build and when i test boot the external build, i get the same error message, D7 - "no console input devices are found". is this ok or is this bad. i only have the motherboard (ASRock z77 Extreme4), CPU (i5- 3570k), and RAM G.SKILL Ripjaws 8gb) installed powered by the PSU (FATAL1TY 750W)

im terrified, please help

This may sound stupid, but you do have a keyboard plugged in?

I've searched for other people with the same error code and some didn't have a keyboard attached, and attaching one fixed it. Just try plugging a keyboard in and see if that fixes the problem.

i plugged in a USB keyboard and got a new code: A2 - "IDE detect" what does that mean?

So what is happening? Are you saying you are breadboarding right now?

Are you getting into the bios?

A2 error, I think, means you don't have a HDD hooked up, which you wouldn't if you are breadboarding.

well i dint have an HDD hooked up at the point, im currently installing the HDD and the optical drive at the moment. but quick question as i continue the instal, do these messages about not having keyboard and HDD mean that the other components are ok, like the CPU? i need some peace of mind that the components ive already installed are functional

Do you have an internal speaker hooked up?

If so, you should hear one beep one start up.

This is no problem at all. This is what the BIOS does. It alerts you when critical parts are missing. These messages are used to debug.

Go ahead and complete your build. Things are going good for you. seriously.

wait..... is your RAM installed??????


Yes his ram is installed.

It sounds like he is just a bit nervous about his build. I would put it all in the case and boot.

you're right about being nervous... i hooked up an old monitor via VGA and i got a ASRock splash screen and then a black screen that followed that gave me info on all my components, my CPU, RAM, MoBo so i must have successfully installed them all if it recognized it. im going to fully instal everything and ignore the dr debug codes for now and then boot and see what happens.

You will get some codes when breadboarding because you don't have everything hooked up that it is looking for.

Get it all in the case and try it, I think you will be fine.

Let us know how it turns out!
