    DP55WG motherboard cyclic boot failure

    Stonecherub

      I am experencing boot failure in a strange cyclic fashion
      I am building this machine from all new parts (except video card which is temporary)

       

      SYSTEM:
      Intel DP55WG Motherboard - Intel P55, Socket LGA1156, 8 Channel Audio, SATA
      CPU - Intel BX80616I5655K Core i5 655K Processor - 3.20GHz, LGA 1156 with Coolermaster N520
      Memory - Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX HyperX Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB
      Radeon XFX video card (from 4 years ago, model forgotten and not identified on card)

       

      I switch power supply on (0 to 1), I DO NOT need to press power button
      led 'cr12bu' flashes brilliant white (next to power button), led "stby" glows (green),
      Fans start

      HDD led glows blue
      post code led shows 27, then 60, then 36 - code explanations make no sense
      led 'cr2pr' flashes red (behind cpu)
      fans stop for about 1 second
      Entire cycle takes 15 seconds and repeats

      Video card and be in or out


      When I switch power supply OFF (1 to 0), fans stop and then restart
      for 3-4 seconds apparently from power in capacitors

       

      I cannot determine if this is the wong memory.

          UPDATE:

           

          Posting this problem opened references initially unavailable.

           

          It would appear that mating the i5 655K processor with the DP55WG board requires the 5531 BIOS update which, I presume but have no way of knowing, the board does not have. At least one other person is having similar (but not the same) cyclic boot failures on a borad that lacks this update.

           

          WHAT DO I DO NOW? The board needs a BIOS update but will not boot.

           

          Vexing.

            That was the first thing I thought of when I read your first post. If you don't have an older supported CPU that you can temporarily install just to flash the BIOS with, I'd talk with your supplier or Intel tech support in your country to see what they say. I wouldn't feel comfortable even attempting a BIOS update using the recovery method with an unsupported CPU.
