    Asrock Z170A-X1/3.1 with i5-7500

    psychmd

      Building a PC (all brand new parts) with Asrock Z170A-X1/3.1 with i5-7500. All cabling is connected as well as RAM (G. SKILL Ripjaws V-series DDR4--2X8 GB-- 3200) . When turning the PC on, it will not go to POST. I have read, during many hours in front of my laptop, that this CPU will need the latest BIOS in order to work; whether this is true, ???. My problem, of course, is that I can't get the latest BIOS since this CPU needs it to POST.

      Assuming that the above is correct, is there a way to install the latest BIOS without changing out the CPU or motherboard? If change is needed, what part(s) do I need to change?

      Of course, if all of this is incorrect, what can it be?
