Problems, problems, problems;
Rampage V Extreme
F4-3000C15Q-16GRR (A1 B1 C1 D1)
Asus Gtx 690
Pioneer Optical Driver
Avermedia HD Capture was installed on motherboard;
First startBIOS(0603) Q-Code 53 (Memory initialization error);
Removing/replacing rams; able to get into BIOS but rams were not recognized (Total memory: 16 Mb)
Since rams are not listed in manual but listed in QVL(which was updated later than manual) and 0706 is the one which is updated last, I have tried update the BIOS. Attempting to update via Dos, everything went fine on DOS but when computer rebooted itself I had waited 30-45 mins since it was saying "Updating BIOS, do not power off etc" but after half an hour I powered off pc by manually since clearly it stuck. Then powered on the system it didnt displayed anything, after 10-15 sec it rebooted and same "Updating BIOS, do not power off etc" again it stuck for 5-10 minutes so I powered off and on manually, this time Q-Code 04 showed up and waiting 10-15 it rebooted itself, same cycle for 3-4 times. I have removed Zxr and HD capture but left 4 slot rams to see if its due to PCI slots, but still same.
So what should I do now?
Fist step will be removing 3 sticks and testing each stick.
Question; Did I damaged BIOS1 chip? Can I reset it by Clear CMOS and turn back to 0603 or is it gone for ever? If its not gone I will try USB BIOS Flashback that is with ROG connect button?
Any comment will be appreciated.
