Here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Clear the CMOS battery for 20 minutes and remove all memory from the system. Place the battery back and turn on the motherboard without memory looking for beep codes. If any beep codes, install one memory module and try to boot.
- If the no boot issue persists, proceed with a BIOS recovery test to the latest BIOS version:
thanks fro the tip. however that did not help. I've tried everything I can think of by now:
remove all expansion cards
on the right of the processor there are couple of led's these light up slowly and go off slowely while the system is poweron. There are six of those. I noticed that only 4 of them are 'blinking' is this correct behavior ?
anyone have any other tips ?
after two days the board is still not booting.
I figured out that post 12 means "early chipset register programming"
recovery flashing etc. is not working, I think the bios never reaches that point it seems.
before all of this happened I had as strange issue which I accounted to windows at first. I keep getting file system errors when nothing bad seems t have happened. I assumed there was something going on with windows8 which I had just installed. maybe the chipset is damaged somehow ?
how do I RMA the board ?
