First, let me please ask nobody asks me things like "Try a different X component) - I don't have a spare anything, not a spare cpu, psu, anything

 

Specs below, all brand new, no post. Error code 78, which in the Q table means "ACPI Module Initilization". There's also a red light on "CPU" but weirdly a green light on "Boot".

 

 

The system starts, goes to the Asus logo (i try going to the bios but nothing happens) and then goes to an "American megatrends" page (screenshot below)

Have you tried resetting the CMOS on the motherboard. Have you tried reseating the RAM.

It would seem to me that it straightforwardly tells you on the screen what´s wrong?

 

If you mean the M.2 thing, I'm not sure about that. Even with no harddrive it should still let me into the BIOS, right?

answer the latter part, did you test outside of case, looking at the megatrends screen, it looks like its not liking the sata m.2 in the port

Since I´ve never dealt with any M2 device, I´m not sure, either.  However, it seems it doesn´t like whatever is plugged into that slot, so I´d take it out and see what happens.

the error shows it detect something is in the socket and its not compatible (support pcie not sata device). So do you have anything pluged in the m.2_2 socket?

if yes, remove it and try,

if no, then theres something wrong with the motherboard i would say.

Yes, I have an m.2 SSD in it. Does this mean this M.2 drive is totally useless? I wanted an m.2 drive to save myself the extra cables that come with an SSD. IIRC they are also a tiny bit faster too.

Error messaged changed to A2, which is "IDE Detect"

The screen now occasionally says something about a CPU temperature error too (yes, it has a cooler on it)

No, I tested it all to see if anything obviosu was prudent (like fans stopping etc) and it was fine.

Just read your last thread posted as well. You could have actually damaged your MB by forcing your RGB connector to the wrong slot. If you're playing with something drawing power from the MB and jam it in the wrong slot, you can surge portions of you MB.

 

Did you power it on when trying this connector?

No, I didn't. It doesn't even fit.

Managed to get into the bios after removing M.2, the CPU heat issue persists. The BIOS reports a temp of 89C but I can't feel any heat coming from anywhere.

Your heat sink/cooling system is not making contact to the right area. Are all your Heat sink contacts in correctly?

Can you take a picture of the inside of your system? I may be able to assist.

It's definitley on right. I tightened it down well, even if it wasn't it should still cool to some extent. I'll take a picture, hold on.

Its not about being secure, Its about making sure its getting the right readings. Your system is not that Temp, its just a reading error.
