@ AndrewCowley, you need to reprogram your BIOS using hardware SPI-programmer. You can buy preprogrammed BIOS-chip from Ebay, or go to repair service.

Coderush, thanks for the reply. Does this look like it -

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-Bios-Chip-Asus-Maximus-IV-GENE-Z-GEN3-/170910240636?pt=US_Motherboard_Components&hash=item27cb0b4f7c&_uhb=1#ht_1991wt_882

Does this chip just pull in and out of the board or is it soldered in?

Wow, there's a lot of info in this thread! I've been skimming and searching it for a couple of hours now, soaking up the knowledge, but I haven't found my situation, so I'm hoping someone can help me.

I purchased the "ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard" along with the i7-2600K CPU and other components (parts list) for my birthday and happily set about putting everything together. It's been maybe 4-5 years since I've "gotten my hands dirty" and put together a machine. I was really enjoying it and marveling over how everything is so much better designed nowadays.

Then I tried to turn it on. #FAIL. Everything seems to power on fine but all I get is a red LED labelled CPU. Called Asus, they said it was a bad CPU and to swap it out. Well, I don't have those lying around so I'll have to RMA it through Newegg. First time I've had to do that (purchased a *lot* from them over the years) and was dismayed to see that a> I have to pay shipping and b> they don't cross-ship. So now I'm dead in the water for at least a week, which is frustrating.

Add to that, as I started to Google, I found reports of these boards having POST problems. So, my questions to the collective mind here:

  • Looking at the parts list, everything should be compatible, yes? Asus tech support said the board should support the CPU out of box, no BIOS updated needed.
  • Does everyone concur with just swapping out the CPU to see if that's the issue?
  • Or should I just RMA both the board and the chip at once, to be safe?
  • Am I missing anything?

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Peter

Your parts list isnt visible for anyone else but you... smile.gif

What error code are you exactly getting on the two digits?

Did you check if your RAM is seated 100%? Its easy to leave them only halfway pushed in on the non-clip end.

Oh rats, I thought I made it public. In fact, it says it's shared. Well, another ding to Newegg. Here:
  • Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    Item #: N82E16811129042
  • ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

    Item #: N82E16820233390

Note that I pulled a hard drive and an optical drive out of a working machine to complete the build.

The two digit LCDs are blank; no display at all. I checked RAM, yes, even removed and reseated twice. Same on video card. The only thing I ever get out of the system is the red troubleshooting LED that is labelled CPU.

Thanks!!!

My rig should be in my signature now.

A error code of 61 briefly flashes up before it dies. If I just leave it, it sits there starting up and shutting down in a loop. Never seems to get close to showing me the bios screen.

I ordered one of the chips from Bios Depot on eBay and requested they put 0402 on it. Hopefully that fixes it.

Are Bios Depot reliable?

I just noticed that with the latest BIOS 3603 the iGPU offset mode sign is missing the [-], only [+] shows as an option.

Anyone have this issue?

Any thoughts on the new 3603 BIOS?

I guess because most of the people don't even bother changing the core voltage of the iGPU?

@AndrewCowley, Bios Depot is reliable and there is no need of soldering.

@kevindd992002, 3603 is crap. No bugs was corrected, several new was added, RST OROM is a bit newer but still old comparing it to latest Intel versions. Nothing interesting there, still waiting for new ME 8.1 BIOS with SecureBoot support.

Can someone help me out with what seems to be a common debug code# 34 displayed on the Gene-Z IV motherboard on a new build with an i5 i2500K processor with 16Gb Corsair CML Vengeance?

I get the code 34 but it recognizes all of my RAM and I can get into the BIOS. No other devices are hooked up yet. I have tried reseating everything but haven't taken off the cooler and reseated the CPU.

Should I just continue with adding the rest of my hardware and installing the operating system or should I look elsewhere before I press on?

Thanks
