AsRock Extreme 7 Gen 3 "Microcode Not Found"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright guys I have a problem, I just swapped my E3G3 for a E7G3 and well I didn't bench test it before putting everything together like I should have and nothing came up on my monitor so I took my case panel off and watched the Dr. Debug thing and it goes threw all the numbers and letters bug keeps stopping at 0E and I looked it up in the manual and it says it means "Microcode not found"

What does this mean?
Has this happened to anyone? If so what did you do to fix it?



I have googled this and have come up with nothing.

Did you try only booting with I RAM stick installed? Updated the BIOS? Any bent pins on the mobo? Did you try to reseat the CPU? Clear CMOS?

BIOS is what is on the board since I can't get past the BIOS as of right now, No bent pins on the mobo and yes I reseated the CPU and removed the graphics card since I don't have the driver installed on the SSD yet.

I have cleared the CMOS several times.

I see you have 2700K here, and I assume it's Z68 Extreme7. Since 2700K wasn't available at launch, Extreme7's stock BIOS needs an update for its support. That what CPU microcode is.

You'll need to get some launch date SB CPU like 2500K, or low-end i3.

Also since that board has a removable BIOS chip, you can buy an updated BIOS chip from ASRock.

Yes it's a Z68 Extreme 7

So buying a updated BIOS chip or updating the BIOS with a earlier CPU and updating would allow me to use my 2700k with this board.

It should. I think that's the issue anyway.
