New 2500k Build Won't Boot Past UEFI

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I recently purchased some new parts and put them together, but I am having trouble booting past the UEFI screen, where it asks you to press F2/Del to setup, etc...Board code says "64", which seems to be "CPU DXE initialization (module specific)", according to the P67 manual. Should I assume the processor I received was faulty? Specs:

Motherboard: Asrock P67 Extreme4
CPU: Intel i5-2500k
Memory: 2x4Gb G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 8-8-8-24
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 460 1Gb (old)
PSU: Corsair HX620 (old)
HD: 2 Samsungs (old), WD Black 1Tb

Some of the parts are from my old build, and they are in working order (tested). I tried using one ram, the other ram, changing slots, etc...Cables are all connected correctly, heat sink is seated correctly (tried both the stock Intel heat sink and Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B.), I can't think of anything else I might have missed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It Could possibly be the cpu/motherboard, Have you inspected all the cpu motherboard pin's carefully incase any were bent ??

Perhaps update to the newest bios if you haven't already

Never assume your cpu is faulty.They just don't come doa new.Most likely you just need to go into setup and correctly set the time and date.Then hit f10 to save and continue.When a board is new they will sometimes halt on startup so you can go in and configure the bios properly before booting.

Thanks for the input.

I've found the culprit. With my SteelSeries Xai mouse plugged in, the computer refuses to boot. Even after installing Windows and drivers, if the mouse is plugged in before the system finished booting into Windows, it will halt the boot process. This is really irritating, but at least I know it's an issue unrelated to the main hardware.

Does anyone know a workaround for this issue? It seems like a fairly common occurrence actually.
