Cannot Enter BIOS on ASRock X79 Extreme 6

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I can't seem to be able to get into the BIOS on my ASRock X79 Extreme 6. I am having the same issue as I did previously on my Asus P9X79 Deluxe, thinking it was a motherboard problem I went out to purchase an ASRock X79 Extreme 6, however this seems to be having the same issue.

Upon booting up the system, the system does not display the ASRock logo or anything, it goes directly into the boot sequence and has the Dr. DEBUG at the bottom right hand corner. Every time I attempt to go into BIOS, pressing DEL or F2 key it flashes into post for a split second and jumps into a blank black screen, same with pressing F11 key just to select boot device. This is perplexing and I don't think it has to do with my GPU or the CPU as it has been tested and working fine previously.

Can anyone help me? It'd be greatly appreciated if any help was given.

PS. BIOS version was P1.50 which supports i7-3820.

EDIT: Dr. DEBUG Shows a error LED of 0D

You wouldn't happen to be using HDMI for your display, would you?

Nope, using DVI as output.

So you tried to put this together on another board, because it didn't work and then went out to get a different board to fix said problem. However you are having the same exact problem on the new board as the old one. You see the probability of the SAME EXACT THING happening with a newer board from completely different company and it being the same exact "motherboard" issue is pretty impossible. So it means only a few possibilities; 1) You are doing something completely wrong, USER ERROR. 2) Something wrong with CPU, or GPU 3) Incredibly bad luck.

I'm going with choice 1. Make sure the CPU is properly seated. Make sure all of your connections are thorough. Go through everything. Make sure Ram is properly seated. Really, go through everything because you are probably just doing something wrong. Seems highly unlikely that two motherboards would do the same thing. If it's not your fault (user error) then it means you might have a bad CPU or GPU. Which you claim has been tested to be fully functional. Which leads you right back to 1) because of the probability of the SAME EXACT problem happening on a completely different board by a completely different manufacture. Unless of course we are dealing with choice 3) here, you have the worst luck in the world (highly improbable). tongue.gif
