Ok, if that's the case do a BIOS update, CPU reset (checking for any dirt in the socket at the same time), then if neither of those fix it, contact ASRock to see if they have any ideas, and if not, return and replace the motherboard. 

I helped my friend build his computer online and when we built it, the computer would turn on and flash cpu+ram on the debug lights, so we tried different ram configurations. The computer will only turn on if there is one ram stick in the 4th slot (B2). is there anyway for me to fix this once i have the pc up and running? otherwise what would have to be fixed?

It would help knowing what the entire setup is, what CPU you're trying to use, what RAM kit exactly, what BIOS revision are you on, what motherboard you're trying to use, etc. 

 

Odds are if it only works in slot B2, it's either a BIOS issue, the CPU isn't making proper contact in the socket (pins bent, dirty, uneven mounting pressure, etc), or you got a faulty motherboard.
