short question. For those who have been reading about my haunted system you know what problems I have been having.
Latest here : http://www.overclock.net/15302745-post3754.html

After updationg to 07 bios, it would not boot beond the w7 logo. So I unplugged the power to the gfx card, but I left it in the slot. Hooked up the pc via MB hdmi out to my tv,and booted up. and I noticed the fans on the msi 560 were spinning . without the power connected to the card, Is this right

Whenever I start up my computer, the Boot_Device LED stays lit and the debug code is 34. I'm not sure what to do. First time building.

the fans get their power from the pci-e slot (as well as the gpu getting a small amount of its required power) so yes even without any 6 or 8 pins connected your fans will fire up.

Code says: CPU post memory initialization

Not sure what that means, but when I had tried putting my f'ed up GTX 460 in to check it before I rma'ed it this is the code I was getting.

I would suggest removing then re-seating ram/gpu (and make sure any cables running to it are correctly attached) then seeing what happens.

If I recall correctly, that is a ram issue. Check your dimms to make sure they are seated correctly. By that I mean the sides without latches are all the way inserted.

Yep, mine did the same when I first booted up, freaked the hell outa me. These new DDR3 DIMM slots are really touchy, make sure you press the RAM all the way in evenly. After reseating ram, mine came up

I'm running BIOS 0902 with no issues

When and if you decide to update (which if you are OC or want maximum reliability it would be a great idea) it is easy.

DL the latest bios from asus.
extract the rom from the .zip file you dl to a flash drive
enter bios and click f5 then f10 (restore defaults/save)
shut down pc and clear cmos (button on back IO)
reboot and enter bios
click tools
click asus ez flash utility
locate the bios file on your flash drive and install

Steps 3 and 4 are not necessarily needed, but as I dont know what you have played with in the BIOS I would recommend them

I tried to include a vid, but i cannot seem to get this site to upload the vid in wmv or rared so if you have troubles (which you shouldnt) pm me and ill email or pm you a link.

Or you could just use the ridiculously simple in-OS tool on the AI Suite...

Issues can and sometimes do result from such actions. Though it is always an option to use the easy way, it is not something that I would personally suggest to anyone. Especially when dealing with a BIOS.

Sidenote for @LA Kings Fan, today (for the first time), Google Chrome's "Anti-Malware Filter" has been red-flagging this thread (I have page 1 bookmarked). I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned about, it's done the same thing on a car forum I frequent. Just thought you'd like to know.

I re-seated the ram, which was actually a little off, and made sure all the other cables were snug and they appear fine.

The CPU is showing up fine in the BIOS and same goes for the ram.

The debug 34 is still there, but my main issue is that my DVD drive and hard drive aren't being recognized it seems. I'm getting frustrated. I've tried plugging both of them into the 6gb and 3gb sata using the two different cables, even tried enabling the hot plug for the ones they were plugged into but they aren't working no matter what I do. So that's why the Boot_Device LED is staying lit up probably.
