I have an ASrock Z77 Extreme4 that I have had for almost a year now from when I did my first build so I don't know much about this stuff. Over the past few weeks I have gotten blue screened around 4 just out of no where while playing games.

So this last time I got blue screened I tried using the clr cmos button to see if it helped. Well now my computer will not boot to the bios. The Dr Debug says error A9 which after some looking around I tried the trouble shooting of unplugging all USB, SATA and just trying to boot the mobo with a stick of ram alone but im still getting the A9 error, and it just keeps resetting over and over and the clr cmos light stays on on the back. Any ideas?

Try unplugging the power cord and removing the CMOS battery for few minutes.

I tried this a couple times and actually left it unplugged and no battery for a few hours and it still does the same thing with the clr cmos button glowing.

Is there a graphics card installed? If yes, remove it and try starting using the onboard video.
If still the same, I would RMA the board.

Thats a bummer, I don't know why clicking the clr cmos would make it unable to boot
