Mind boggling issue with new pc

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have built a lot of PCs in my day, but this issue is one I have never seen. I was overclocking (3600 + b450 aorus m) and had a bsod on boot. Not a big deal usually, but now it won’t post, won’t go into bios, and clear cmos won’t work. Last night I left the cmos battery out and it still won’t work. All that happens is that the fans spin up, the ram debug led comes on, blinks to cpu for a second then goes back to ram, then repeats a few times and shuts off. (Not boot loop). 

 

Ideas?

Sounds to me like a bricked BIOS. That was meant to switch from 1st BIOS to 2nd one.

 

RMA.

 

Does the motherboard allow for BIOS flashing when PC is turned off via USB?

No. But it is dual bios, so I assumed that would kick in.

It seems that both of them are corrupted.

 

Try power cycling.

I don't know if that helps and has sth to do or is logical, but a few weeks ago my pc would instantly give me bsod when I started it. 
The reason was a dead harddrive connected ( even tough it was not windows on it etc.) . Removing the dead drive made it boot up again.

Either you killed the memory controller on the CPU, or you killed your RAM sticks, try using different sticks of RAM
