    DZ87KLT-75K: Continuous Restart Boot Code 0x55


      Hi and thanks for the help!


      I have a machine that has been working for the past week without a single issue. On Friday night I restarted the machine and have not been able to boot it since. The machine powers on and starts a boot sequence, but nothing shows up on the monitor and eventually the machine will power down and restart itself.


      When the machine is booting it gets hung up on a boot code of 0x55 for about 10 seconds and then restarts. This usually continues indefinitely. I have gotten a 3 beep code a couple of times, but not every time. Everything else seems normal - I even see the Memory Init LED blink quickly and then stay solid green.


      Here's a few things I've tried with no luck

      - I've tried removing power and the BIOS battery overnight.

      - I removed the graphics card, hard drives, and all connections to the motherboard besides power and 1 RAM stick.



      - PS: Corsair AX860

      - RAM (x4): G.Skill SNIPER, DDR3 1866, 8GB (F3-1866C10Q-32GSR)


      Like I said above, this had been working just fine before suddenly stopping one reset and hasn't recovered since. Any guidance, known issues, or suggestions for other things to try is greatly appreciated.
