P8z77-v pro cpu red light

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am kind of new to building computers from scratch (did it a few times about 8yrs ago) so im sorry if this is a dumb question lol.. I got a 3570k and p8z77-v pro mobo on the day ivy bridge was released.. after putting some of the parts together and doing a test boot, the fans and etc turn on but it will not POST.. just has a solid red cpu led.. I don't see any bent pins, I reset the CMOS, tried 1 stick of ram, and a few other things.. My only other guess is the board I was sold didn't have a bios updated to run the 3570k.. so I just wanted to get any suggestions before I go buy a 1155 celeron processor the get it to boot so I can update the bios.. any help/suggestions are appreciated smile.gif

Just for kicks and giggles, press and hold the "mem ok" button. Then power it on. It is on the right side of the 24 pin power connector also. Thanks

Red led does mean a problem with the cpu. But you said no bent pins. Did you try to clean the bottom of the cpu contacts with a 91% isopropyl alcohol? Even seen one guy said he had the reset pins bent and it caused it.

You can update the BIOS with that CPU you have now, use the USB BIOS Flashback feature thumb.gif

I think MemOk only resolves the problem when its the dram led.. I tried it though and no luck :/.. it would be nice if it was that simple though lol..

I knew I had read that you could do it from the usb port but couldn't find in the manual again after lol.. I could only find the part where it talked about doing it from the current bios.. I will try the updated bios and see if I just had an older mobo.

Alright thanks.. from looking at the stickers on the board I found out it had bios 703 (not compatible).. I updated it to 1015 and from looking at the blinking light it seemed to flash correctly.. still has cpu led on though.. guess I will try a few more things tomorrow and if that doesn't work I will take it back to the store and get them to test it.

Problem solved, went back to the store and exchanged it for a gigabyte z77x-ud5h. Then paid them $10 to run a POST test before I drove back lol. I was tired of messing with POST errors lol.
