asus rampage 4 extreme - error code 14

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey guys was sitting gaming on my box playing a bit of arma3 when suddely my machine shut down and tried to reboot and is now stuck on post code 14.

going through the manual i found this...
11 – 14 Pre-memory CPU initialization is started

not sure what that means as of yet... doing some searches but in the mean while i was wondering if anyone knows anything that can help me fix the issue.

somethings i have tried:

switched to 2nd default bios to try to boot. - no go.

Did the computer shut down on its own or was it instant off like the power got cut?

If it went through somewhat of a shutdown procedure, you can check the log and see what caused the event.

If the computer just snapped off in an instant, I would lean towards a power supply failure of some sort.

seems to have booted now... i have a strange suspicion that it maybe a bad wall plug.

electrical wiring is notoriously bad in montreal... the pc seems to have booted after i pressed the go button.

the psus seem to be ok.

corsair ax1200i
and ax750i

with an add2psu adapter.

I've had that one before unfortunately I don't remember what exactly caused it or how I fixed it. I think I cleared the bios, swapped bios back and forth, and it kind of just cleared itself up. Haven't the issue since so I can't really say what the hell it was.

i swapped the thread... i think my cpu spazzed. it running a pretty steep OC... running 4.8 24/7 so some weirdness is bound to happen. but i did exactly that... spawpped bios... is it seems to have cleared away... maybe it was a power surge?

no idea. but if you do remember please please let me know.

What kind of a machine is it that takes that much power supply? Just curious.

I would like to see a photo of that if you ever get the chance.

Hopefully your power issues are solved. You could always get a power line conditioner.
