Need Help with Crosshair IV Formula (no boot/post)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just like the post says, my board wont boot or post what so ever. When I power on the system the DRAM and CPU led lights blink back and the fans pulse (go from slow to fast) over and over.

This is a 2nd rma board and is brand new from asus and I still can't find the problem. The cpu and ram are all seated correctly. What could the issue be? Asus has been completly useless and keeps going for new RMA's. I'm on my last leg here about to give up.

Thanks for the help in advance!

try with power off press and hold MemOk! button. That should reset the cmos settings. It worked before for me on my Sabertooth 990 when I accidentally set my NB higher than Core speed.

Hmm tried this and I still get the same result. Asus just told me it could have something to do with my CPU's memory controller? I'm not sure what that is but they recommend doing an RMA on that since this board is brand new.

I had a similar situation where a Crosshair IV formula was not booting. Symptoms included loss of power switch function, boot up lit cpu led and dram led and then instant shut down. Solved problem by replacing onboard battery.
I assume the board was reverting to original bios chip version and would not support the cpu or memory.
Currently using revision 1902, Phenom 10055T and ddr3 1333. Going to try mem upgrade next.

I had a similar problem with my Crosshair V yesterday. No post, and no sounds just turn it on and it lights up, the fans go at full power till you pull out the PSU plug. Confounded me for hours, I tried everything!

**I'm not sure exactly what I did but make completely sure the 24 pin power plug is rammed in to the slot tight, and flick the Rog Connect switch on the board itself to ON.

**Make sure the 8 pin power connection is plugged in to the board, if you dont have 8pin on your psu, failing that use 2, 4-pin power plugs in both of the sockets at the top left and the right on the board instead.

Because either that was the problem with mine, or I just got lucky after spending 3-4 hours trying to get the damn thing to stop telling me my CPU is dodgy (it had a constant red light)...

Oh well its fixed now, I can finally smile. smile.gif

I hope it works for you.

Pretty much all of this. Check your power connections. If it's still a no-go, do you have a different board you can test your CPU in? The symptoms point to CPU.

make sure nothing is shorting out the motherboard. Ive seen several people having problems with the motherboard standoffs shorting out their board.

Ok so I got a new board and a new cpu. Everything is seated but this time my BOOT DEVICE LED stays solid red. Everything powers up and I get a short beep, but no visual on screen. What could this mean?

Asus suggested it could be my ram isnt compatible but ive had the same ram in this motherboard before and it worked fine. They also had me take the cmos battery out and move the jumper and retry it but still the same result.

Any Ideas? This is ffrustrating to no end.

That sux man. If your psu is bad, hardware might not be getting the right voltage to run properly.

The exact same thing happened to me. I have the same MB. I got two new XFX HD 6970 video cards to replace my other two crosfired HD 5700, installed one to test out the card and got the blank screen and the card sounded like an airplane it made so much noise. removed the first new card and installed the second, and the same effect, no post except for the noise, the card was qureter. I replaced the new card with my two old ones and the computer worked. I believe in this case my power supply is not sufficient to power the v-card. Could be the same problem you are having. Try installing a smaller v-card if you have one.
