AsRock x570 Extreme4 Wifi ax Post Status Checker Light {Boot}

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I checked the manual and it literally says the following.

" 2.7 Post Status Checker Post Status Checker (PSC) diagnoses the computer when users power on the machine. It emits a red light to indicate whether the CPU, memory, VGA or storage is dysfunctional. The lights go off if the four mentioned above are functioning normally. "

Well, my light says Boot.

I pulled the m.2 SSD out, I disconnected my SATA knowing full well that isn't it.

I don't understand why I am getting this error, two days before I am passed my RMA period. This is insane to me. I spent over $2500.00 on a new upgrade to run into issues after issues. Please somone help me.

 

Update: I did extensive testing and I have also purchased a new motherboard (different) brand (Gigabyte) and I am still unable to get a post to show on screen or get to the bios screen. 

 

Suggestions welcome.

Yep, I bought a new motherboard and tested the CPU on a b450 as well with updated BIOS and still nothing. Not sure how a CPU could have just died. Temps were good, never ever ran hot. Sigh, I only played MHW with my friend for at least 4 hours at a time every other day.
